Tiverton surroundings, Devon

Something not new new. But that what you get, when you use an old camera, and you have to wait for the film to be used entirely. Here is some more photos of my weekend in Tiverton.
Finally being able to see and touch the pictures freshly developed feels like a treasure !! I was very happy with the result. Actually the camera that I used was given me by a friend, and seems more like a toy than anything else. But I love the light on the photos. Probably due to the 200 ISO film that I used (I think, I'm no professional). I'm so glad that the sea, the sky and the clouds are so defined. The colors of Devon are so lovely an changing. 
Having photo developed, and using an old camera makes the process of taking pictures so special. Enjoy !!!

Wild Horses !!!

This old bridge !! Basically, if you got the good car, you are able to cross the river. Actually the road stop there, then you have the river, then the road continue on the other side. Shame I left my 4x4 in my ranch hé !

A Pocket Full Of Rye, at Rye Sussex.

For her birthday, my sister decided to go on day trip to the southern town of Rye. I followed blindly, as to me only bread could be rye.
We arrived to a small station, on a windy sunny day, our backpacks full of M&NS and sketch books.
What a cute town !!! You can walk from one end to the other in 10 min, so tiny! Rye is filled with charming cottages, antique shops, tea rooms, and a castle.
Our cameras never stopped flashing, to capture the houses with exposed beams. We couldn't help looking through the windows of the cottages. It felt like a set up for one of those British TV Shows that I love !  A big amount of antiques shop were just following each others, on the winding streets.
It was hard to resits to the multiple treasure they were containing.
I manage to find a lovely curved umbrella, with a bamboo handle. 
A jazz festival was happening over the weekend, so we were quite lucky to witness a few groups playing in the streets. It gave such a nice atmosphere to the town. 

Nice found in a local charity shop.

Clive seems to be quite specimen !

We had an average breakfast in The Apothecary. The cafe is quite vast, with a very nice set up and decoration. But maybe don't go for the food that include bread, we were a bit disappointed by it. The cakes looked much better.

In the local museum of Rye. 

I was so happy to be able to wear the short I made, with the intention to wear during my weekend in Devon.
Cardigan, worn backward:  Topshop
Short: hand made
Shirt, sandals, umbrella, backpack, sunglasses: vintage
Socks: M&S

I was surprised to find out that Henry James lived in Rye for quite a long time ( I didn't researched anything about the town before hand, not good , not good). But as our wallet had emptied due to vintage purchases, that we left the exploring of the writer's house to another visit.

The people in Rye are funny folks !
