Lampus Vulgaris – Minature Variety
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 !!!!!!!!
It’s A Breeze
Belt & Braces
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.

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.

A Bit Of Texture
Renovations In The Market Place
Took this as a 2 shot vertical panorama
Building On The Circle
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 !
I had a quick walk to town this morning, the weather wasn’t bad and the clouds looked good.
Seagulls & Clouds
There had been a carnival at the weekend on the park so I guess there were some tasty leftovers for the gulls.
These caught my eye as I walked through the market.
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.
A Lovely Gate
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.
Sorry About This !
John on the left, me on the right sporting a fresh haircut that takes the barber all of 5 minutes !!!! The weather took a turn for the worse and we accidentally went into a pub to take shelter.
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.
Not sure why I like this, possibly the leaves contrasting with the modernish building.
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.
As well as taking pictures for my “Thursday Doors” post I managed a few quick shots around the town.
There was a continental market taking place in the town.
The Old Market (transaction)
I’m still not that comfortable taking street shots of people, more practice I think.
