Thursday Doors

24-08-17

Met up with my photowalk buddies this morning, the weather was good and we headed off to a part of town that I wouldn’t go to on my own.

There’s A Door There Somewhere

Out of the corner of my eye I noticed someone pointing a camera at me while I was taking this, it was someone I knew but hadn’t seen for ages, he was trying out his new Fuji XT2.

One Up One Down

According to my buddy who knows a bit about the history of this forlorn little house, it’s the last example of a 1up 1down in the city. Of course they want to demolish it to extend a car park !!!!!!!!

There’s an interesting brick relief on the building and an old painted sign, must get down to the reference library and try to find the history of some of the factories. All in all a good day, and according to my phone app I walked 6.43 miles.

What A Difference A Day Makes

After the awful weather over the last few days it was great to wake up to a warm sunny morning. I needed to go into town to stock up on essentials, have a film developed, and donate a box of kitten food to my neighbour who’s feeding the feral cats that have camped out in her garden. Managed to take a few photographs on the walk in.

There’s a lot of building going on in the city at the moment, unfortunately most of it is bland apartment blocks, no doubt this will be the same !

Thursday Doors – 03-08-17

A bit late posting, took all but one of these images yesterday (Thursday) for the excellent “Thursday Doors” over at  Norm 2.0  blog, do take take a look.

Met up with my PhotoWalk buddies in town, the weather was really unpredictable as it has been for most of the last few weeks, windy, rain, and a bit of sunshine.

This is one from a couple of weeks ago, spotted on a walk to town.

Pour me a cool one.

This was at the back of some fairly derelict looking buildings.

Couldn’t resist.

Notice Door

This building is empty, but it’s a good looking building. I hope they don’t demolish it and replace it with some bland corporate style apartment block. There’s something written on the second step down, but I can’t quite make it all out.

One of my favourite subjects, electricity substation.

Quick Walk To Town

19-07-17

Yesterday I needed to top up cat food supplies (very important) and cake supplies for me ! So I took a quick walk to town, the weather wasn’t bad if a bit breezy. Took the Sigma with me to get a few shots if anything caught my eye.

The hanging baskets outside the cathedral were looking good.

Leafy

Not sure why I like this, possibly the leaves contrasting with the modernish building.

Prismatic

No idea what this thing is supposed to do, looked through it at all angles but all I saw was a blur, not the kaleidoscope effect I was expecting.

Last Thursday’s Walk To Town

I’m still not that comfortable taking street shots of people, more practice I think.
