A trip in nothingness, through the pentax

on the road

I don’t really know where to start about my – our – recent getaway to Cornwall. I have seen landscapes so beautiful my eyes hurt. I have eaten food so delicious my taste-buds remember. I have driven so much I feel the speed of the motorways at night.

It was like a dream. In nothingness. Le néant, a bit like in the neverending story.

Breathtaking. Figuratively, when the wind would push the ocean against the rocks. Literally, when the fog would only allow us to see a few metres away from the car.

We stayed at the loveliest bed and breakfast. There was a fireplace. Hot chocolate and rocky roads. Thousands of books to read from.
But I will talk about this later.

For the time being, all that matters are the precious moments I spent with Aïda and those to come. And for the record, two girls + six cameras give you a lot of pictures to go through. And many unstoppable laughs over the most random things ever.

Here are the ones from the pentax me super. And you can even get a glimpse of our FAIL with the diana (and instant back).

    I love these photos. I’ve never been to Cornwall but need to fix that soon! Oh and I have an old pentax super me with a broken light meter that I’ve been meaning to replace. These photos have reminded me why…

    Beautiful pictures! I’m headed to Cornwall in a couple of months and this has made me really excited to go. Are there any places you’d recommend going to?

    […] my little sister (a #loveofmylife hashtag seems appropriate here) took last year when we were in Cornwall. By that lighthouse we fell in love with. One day under the mist, the other under a sky so blue it […]
