I Remember Why I Dream In Black And White

Film 8 – El Escorial and a mystery

El Escorial by Tim Baker

As part of another film I’ve not indentified John had mentioned we went to El Escorial – and it turns out with a little help from Google Image Search this is what this film is from – took me a long time to identify this film, I thought it might be from Barcelona or Rome, but it turns out to be the Basilica and the palace of El Escorial!

There is a still a mystery with this film though, and the other – it also contains images from Berwick, well near Berwick, a tudor house/fortress (!) that was along the border we visited there…I have the digital pics so confirmed that…I remembered the day immediately when I saw the scan, and that I went to to the top and took pictures but Johnn stayed at the bottom, and the house had been much raided over the centuries and I think was English Heritage (?) but no idea where this is:

Ditto this image, which I’m guessing is also in the area or somewhere near Lindisfarne, because I have a colour version of this taken on the previous film (7):

All images taken on Ilford Delta with Nikon F90.
