Adventures In Kent

After a bit of a quiet photographic spell lately, owing to a busy schedule and some poor weather, I spent a terrific weekend with friends in Kent. We clocked in quite a bit, taking in the aromatic lavender fields in Shoreham, the Roman Villa at Lullingstone and the Chislehurst Caves. We rounded off the day with a lovely walk through Petts Wood. I didn't shoot much of the lavender fields as I couldn't find a more original shot to take than the thousands that people have already taken. The Roman Villa at Lullingstone, discovered and unearthed in the 1940s, was very interesting, and features many relics, including human and animal skeletons. History is always fascinating to me, and the villa was a perfect example of the ingenuity of Roman design and construction. The beautiful mosaic showcased the apparent wealth of the inhabitants.Finally, we had a lot of fun on a tour of the Chislehurst Caves. The caves were used for mining flint and other materials, all the way back from the times of Druids, Saxons and Romans. They were also used as a shelter and storage facility during the two world wars, and in the latter half of the twentieth century they were used for music concerts by many famous bands and musicians. The eerie darkness and isolation down in some of the caves must have been deeply unsettling, and we discovered just how much so at one point when we had to surrender our paraffin lamps. All the images here were taken with the EM-5 and either the 12-40mm F/2.8 or the 40-150mm F/2.8.
