used for repairs.

Bring The Paint

08-06-22

It’s the “Bring The Paint” event in my home town this month. Met up with my Photo Buddies last week and we had a walk around some of the areas that have been painted. We were so lucky with the weather, as it’s been really cold and dull for June.

Taken the week before, we were a bit too early !

*******

There was still a lot of painting going on, will probably meet up again with the Photo Buddies next week to see how it’s progressing.

3D specs needed

Scary

A bicycle for two

I used my old Sigma DP1 to take these images, but really struggled to see the screen at times. If we go back next week (weather permitting) I’ll take one of my old Olympus cameras with a viewfinder.

Met my Photo Buddies in town today, it was great to meet up and have a few coffees and a catch up. Managed to capture a few down at heel doors for this weeks “Thursday Doors” post. To see some doors from around the world check out Dan Antions excellent blog.

I do like a green door, even if it’s a bit tatty like this one.

*******

Bit of a half porthole on this one.

*******

Past grandeur, I hope it gets restored.

Tagging, really !

A few more doors from my walks, mainly to the music pub or to meet friends at a pub in town. I’ve been trying to get my fitness levels up after testing positive for Covid at the beginning of March, I self isolated for 14 days and that took it’s toll as I spent most of the time in the house. Managed to walk 6 miles on Tuesday and it was OK, so getting there.

To see some Doors from all over the world head over to Dan Antions excellent blog.

The flowers above the door caught my eye on this one.

The colour and window on this one.

The style of this one.

And this one on the right.

A window to finish with.

Could This Be Spring ?

16-04-22

Arranged to meet an old friend yesterday for a bite to eat and a beer or two. It was the first time in months that I didn’t need to wear a thermal T Shirt. The sun was out and it was a balmy 19deg C / 66deg F, it actually felt like a spring day. I took my battered Sigma DP1 camera with me on my walk to the pub. Here’s a few images along the way.

Managed to photograph a few doors on my way to the music pub last Friday. Haven’t felt much like taking any images lately, but the weather was reasonable if not that warm, and the thought of meeting friends and some good beer and music spurred me on. Check out Dan Antions blog for a great selection of doors from around the world.

I like the slightly tatty doors the best.
Love the old Victorian villas that have names.

Great brickwork and canopy.

Another named one.

Two for one.

A nice textured Blue one.

These are from the archive (2018) I haven’t managed to get out to take any photographs lately. My lovely cat Fleur (mumsy) has got a nasty infection on her mouth, she’s had a blood test, result was clear, steroid and antibiotic injections. We are off to the vets again first thing tomorrow morning, I won’t be able to settle until I can see some improvement in her.

Seen better days. I do like the Green tiles though.

The stickers caught my eye !

Got to like Purple door.
