Leaf in the Park, Horsham

Horsham Park, October 2018

Another one of those “as I was wandering past” photographs. October in West Sussex was particularly mild this year, with a number of glorious sunny days. Horsham Park is pleasant green space near to the station where I often wait before catching a train.

I think there are two types of  photographers: those who photograph leaves and those I don’t. Can’t resist them myself.

Technically speaking, I took this with my iPhone (a 6s Plus). I am really happy with the colour. In good light, I find it takes excellent pictures. It focuses quite close. My only issue is missing focus on slightly moving objects (I think I held the twig this leaf is on to keep it still enough.

Locks on a Fence – Hong Kong

2018-10-12-0023This is from a fence outside a nightclub in Hong Kong. What are the locks for? Perhaps for employee lockers (outside the club)?

There was a time when I quite often visited Hong Kong, and my kind of day – would be just wandering around – seeing what was going on.

For the photography buffs, I was using a Nikon F3 with a 50mm lens and some colour print film. Strangely enough, the fence is really sharp, but as the locks stick out – they aren’t. Note to self – stop down more next time! In the whole “digital v analogue” conversation, closeup is much easier with a stabilised lens.
