Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex

My first post of the second lockdown! I’m back to walking in the park either early in the morning, or late at night, when sensible people are snug in bed. I missed the full moon (which was smothered by thick cloud anyway), but I’m still pleased with the amount you can see. In reality, itContinue reading “Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex”

Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Double Rainbow, West Sussex

People tend to think of landscape photography as a fairly leisurely persuit, but in my experience it is anything but. I took these two pictures within a few minutes of each other – and then the light went! If you are curious, I took these on my phone, which I bring on my daily walk.Continue reading “Double Rainbow, West Sussex”

Shadow, West Sussex

Another sunset photo. I really like trees and the interesting shadows which they cast. In this case it is from the the sunset. Part of me want to crop this to square with the tree in the middle – but I haven’t. I wonder what the soundtrack might be.? As you can see, this anotherContinue reading “Shadow, West Sussex”

Another Walk in the Park

I saw this when I went for a walk a couple of days ago. It was about 6.30am. Sometimes I like to listen to something when I’m walking and sometimes I prefer silence. My favourite sound is the birds singing before sunrise (remember back to walking home after a night out).

Mountains in Yunnan

This is another photo from my trip to Yunnan in 2015. Yes, I have this as my banner, but thought I would write about it. The path the photo was taken from led to a large lake. In the foreground, you can see paddies which were in cultivation. In the background, you can the mountainsContinue reading “Mountains in Yunnan”

Tree, Vietnam

I didn’t visit the Reunification Palace while I lived in Ho Chi Minh City, only seeing it when I returned to the country on a flying visit. The building has a rather theatrical quality, which makes me think of a film set. The gardens, but contrast, are cool, dark and rather inviting, with lots ofContinue reading “Tree, Vietnam”

Long Shadow, Shanghai

Although I have been there quite a few times, I always enjoy walking around Shanghai – there is always something to see. The camera I was using was made in 1975 and as usual, I found myself wondering what the place I was visiting was like in 1975. West Nanjing Road is probably the mostContinue reading “Long Shadow, Shanghai”

Dawn – Cedar Key, FL

I can’t believe I took this almost 20 years ago! The night before, I had driven down from Atlanta. The last few miles had been quite slow because deer kept jumping from the side of the road (might have made interesting pictures) in what was quite a rural area. Finally we pulled up at theContinue reading “Dawn – Cedar Key, FL”

On Victoria Peak – Hong Kong

Hong Kong is on my mind lately. Looking through my posts so far, I seem to be drawn to leaves, so many posts- and here is another. This time, I was using my Rolleiflex, peering down into a waistlevel finder. I like the shapes of the shadows. For most people, if you get the funicularContinue reading “On Victoria Peak – Hong Kong”
