Weather not so good

I was going to go for a walk to town today but the weather is pretty bad in my part of the UK, dull and raining off and on. I have enough cat food in store that’s the main thing, so tomorrow will be OK. Here are a couple of images from my phone taken a little while ago whilst waiting for my bus home.



I’m still not comfortable using the phone for taking pictures, but gradually getting used to it.

Cat food run to town

It was very warm and humid today in my part of the UK and so I headed to the city for a cat food top up and some bits for me. I very rarely take painkillers but must have pulled something at the week end whilst gardening :>( and decided not to be a martyr any longer and purchased a pack of joint and back capsules. My favourite busker was in town singing a good selection of summery songs right under the clocktower.

If I had a bit more nerve I would love to have taken a picture of the women in the background with the interesting sunglasses.




I want one of these !

“The Shed”
Just down from the main entrance, I really like the colours and textures.
This was my place of choice after all the other music venues had closed for the night, I don’t think I have the stamina nowadays to carry on until 4am !!!!

Quick Walk To The City


It’s a big day for Leicester today, the Football team are touring the city after winning (against all odds) the Premiership League. A lot of the roads were closed and parts of the city were cordoned off. Tonight Kasabian (formed in Leicester) are giving a free concert in the park I normally walk through on my way to town. I am not a big football fan but it’s really good for the people of the City. I managed grab a few photographs on my way into the town.

Walk (slowly) to the town

Took a slow walk to town this morning, slow because I am still aching a bit from yesterday’s bicycle ride !!!!  There was a continental street market on in the centre, not quite the same as the lovely markets in France but a nice surprise. I still can’t overcome my shyness towards street photography so all photo’s were taken from the hip, some at alarming angles, but easily corrected in Lightroom.

What really caught my eye were the couple at the Newspaper stand. I cropped in on the next image.
