Campervan thy name is Freedom

Well, it says Freedom on the side anyway. Not sure if that’s unique to this van, or the name of the model. 🙂


I like how there’s a subtle drop off in depth of field in these two shots. They weren’t made with the aperture wide open either – I didn’t make a note, but think these might have been at f/5.6 as, while I’d intended to try and reduce the depth of field, the maximum shutter speed of 1/500 sec on the GW690 in combination with 400asa film and a bright day meant this wasn’t possible.

    1. Just before I made these two photos I was speaking to another fella who was taking pictures of the site. It turned out that he worked in the building that used to stand there. He pointed outhow you can still see the remains of the walls and so work out the layout of the rooms. There’s even a bit of the “posh” reception flooring still present.
