Those who have visited the Louise Margaret Maternity Hospital may recall the narrow and shallow staircases. They were designed to allow nurses to run quickly up and down the stairs in their long nursing dresses.

Tapioca Farm House, Sitting comfortably

On my last trip out to Belgium with Matthew Adams and Danny Batchelor one of the locations we visited was Tapioca Farm House. A little wee farmhouse in abit of a state but quite photogenic with some nice bits and pieces and the odd religious cross here and there.

This was back in the summer and the weather was glorious which made the mooching rather relaxed and pleasant. Only a small house but a couple of nice shots to be had.

Shot with my Nikon D800 and a Samyang 12mm fisheye f/2.8 lens.
