This month finally gave me the long over-due chance to go home. Nothing brings out the creativity more than a visit to Cornwall – but it doesn’t take me to tell you it’s a stunning place. The people are interesting and the galleries, of which there are many, are experimental.
However, outside the tourist season the smaller Cornish towns have a slightly different feel than in the height of summer. Many smaller businesses are closed for winter and that trademark Cornish weather we all see on postcards is usually replaced by fog and mizzle (mist and drizzle).
Saying that, we were remarkably lucky with the weather. On those days, we made the most of it and made our way out to Padstow and Falmouth. Still hooked on my art lens, (see: The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens) I used it for most of the trip. However, this did start to show its limitations. Managing those apature plates in ever-changing light conditions made me miss shots and some that I did get could have been better. That said, below are a few shots from the trip using the art lens which I particularly like.
