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.

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 !
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 I thought it’s taking me twice as long to redecorate loo, deciding to clear out the pantry hasn’t helped either. But my two cats have been very good by not getting in the way although they are a bit freaked as everything is in such a mess, a little spray of feliway helps keep them calm. I haven’t had a chance to get out and take any photographs so here are a few from September with the Olympus iS1000.
Took this shot/s last week on a walk to the city. My Sigma DP1 doesn’t have a panorama mode so I set it to manual and stitched the 2 images together in Lightroom. I have always been impressed with this industrial building and thankfully it has recently been restored rather than demolished. I posted a photo of the doorway before the restoration work was carried out on https://legionofdoorwhores.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/it-all-starts-with-the-rats/
