Arran days

Brian on a bike to nowhere.

Anne and I were over visiting friends staying on Arran for a few days at an Auchrannie lodge in Brodick.
We had a great time wandering about Brodick Castle gardens on the first day, coffee and cake at the Aromatics place and a beach walk back in time for a bit of fun in the games hall and a bit of swimming to cool off.

Day 2 was a little bit drizzly but we had a stroll up to Coire Fhionn Loch on the north west of the island and a lovely meal at the Brodick bar restaurant in the evening.

Last day was a walk/lazy split option, three of us went up and over to Dunn Fionn and Clauchland hills from Brodick a nice little three hour loop.

Nice few days, view slideshow here.

Today was lovely and bright so I decided to get out my newest pinhole camera - its called a pinholeroid as it uses instant film. I thought it would be a good option instead of sending off film in the post and having to wait three days to see the result.
I have to say I am very disappointed with the results. The film just doesn't like shade at all, it just goes very blue. Won't be doing colour instsnt film again but I'll give B&W a try before I completely give up the pinholeroid idea.
This particular photo lesson has been quite expensive, I bought the wrong type of polaroid holder from ebay to start with and ruined a film with it. Got the right holder but ruined another film by loading it wrongly now I'm dicovering the results are not really very great at all. Oh dear what a bummer!
