Preview: Excursion about Durham
This was the first excursion with the borrowed tripod. The Mercenary's camera is still missing, so we had to borrow one. We were a rather larger adventuring party than normal and for a change, we aren't deficient in the testosterone for the male costumes.
Aside from the Durham University Science Site, we had no specific itinerary. We were simply wandering through Durham and posing next to interesting buildings and catching the light wherever we can. This is quite the greatest number of locations we've used in one day. We took a good number behind Old Shire Hall (the red brick building in the photo to the left, which used to be the University's office), by the proverbial "cardiac" Hill (on which the Biology department squats), Old Durham Baths (abandoned and boarded up now, apparently once had an illegal rave in it) and a stream on the footpath by Prebends Bridge.
Hopefully in the coming days I'll be posting more pictures of the steampunk swordsman (top) and the distinguished gentleman in the green coat, as well as a gormless peasant and lady in a variety of dresses (including the velvet dress to the right).
