Dorset Day 5 of 6 West Bay, playing with the Art Effects Filters on the Olympus Camera

Still in West Bay. The four of us met up for a Coffee / Ice Cream mid afternoon. We decided that we would have another walk around before heading back to Higher Kingcombe where we were staying. I have played with the Art Effects Filters in the Olympus OMD em1 mkii on a couple of occasions so I though to add a bit of variety into my Dorset Captures I would have another play.

I also wondered what effect these art effect filters would have using my very cheap plastic lens (Holga). The first 7 pictures are using this lens. the others are using a 'proper lens'

Dorset Day 5 of 6 - West Bay

West Bay in Dorset is a great coastal village on the outskirts of Bridport. For those that have seen Broadchurch on TV, a crime series and starred David Tennant and Olivia Colman will recognise some of this location as the filming was done here.

It was a wonderful, sunny afternoon for a stroll around this harbour village. Well with a visit if you are in the area. There are no shortages of quay side food stalls.

Dorset Day 5 of 6 - Dorchester

Day Five of our trip. I had been reading about Dorchester Abbey and thought our trip would be a good opportunity to visit it BUT little did I know!! I failed to see on my investigation that there is a Dorchester on Thames, over 100 miles from where we were staying and that was where the Abbey was. HayHo, I felt a bit of a twit having traveled to Dorchester with three other people from the group. We had a cup of coffee and had a walk round. Some interesting new builds near the old Brewery.
