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.

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.

In The Garden

Well it’s taken me a long time to shake off my man flu but I felt much better yesterday, the weather helped, it was actually sunny and quite warm for a change. So a catch up on the garden chores were desperately needed.

I read a few weeks ago much to my disbelief and dismay that garden plants from many DIY stores and nurseries have been treated with insecticides that can be deadly to bees. I really don’t understand this, one of the reasons I buy plants is to attract wildlife, not kill it. But it makes money for big chemical corporations I guess !!!!!!!!!!!. The film “Idiocracy” comes to mind. The good news is one of the biggest DIY chains in the UK is no longer going to sell plants treated with insecticides, hopefully the others will follow their lead.

After the lawn was mowed and shrubs were pruned I took the camera into the garden to get a few images of some of the flowers, they have had a hard time this year with the cold and rain.

Bright November Day

28-11-16

It was a lovely sunny day in my part of the UK, I got up early (ish) and walked into town, dropped a film in for processing and went down to the canal. I had the Sigma DP1 in the camera bag, the light was harsh so I bracketed some shots and processed them through Lightroom and Easy HDR.

What a dull day today

15/11/16

Needed to escape the chaos of the house, what with the decorating and a general clear out, can’t believe the amount of stuff I’ve accumulated !!!!

The weather wasn’t very promising, dull and flat, and it was a bit muggy, but I put the Sigma DP1 in the bag, not really the best camera for these conditions as it doesn’t perform all that well above 400asa.

Park Keepers Store

I have a thing about doors, I spotted this a few weeks ago on a visit to a city park.
