When my Italian friend Debora returned to Bristol for a few days, she suggested a day trip to a historic pier on the outskirts of Bristol. I didn’t need much convincing to escape the construction drills and sirens of the city centre but was pleasantly surprised how close an oceanic escape was – just a mere 40 minutes by local bus.

Considering that the pier is the town’s only attraction, the icy cold wind that day meant that we were almost the only out-of-towners to pay the three pound entry fee onto the old-world piece of architecture, constructed in 1869.

I’d never even heard of the town of Celevedon, let alone the pier, which Debora was aware of as it had been the shooting location of a famous British boy band. This wasn’t a photoshoot, with a lens in hand and a beautiful Italian girl in view, there was only…one direction…where said lens was going to point.

Speaking of the camera, this was to be the final outing for my Olympus OMD EM1 before I sold it to fund a new venture into the world of full frame photography. The majority of the images on this site were made using the Olympus OMD EM5, a micro four thirds mirrorless camera which gave a performance far beyond it’s toy camera appearance.

So Ciao Olympus, and Ciao Debora…
