For health reasons, I am trying to make sure I take a solid walk every day. I recently found myself testing a new (to me) camera, so I thought I would combine the activities and see what came out of it. The camera is an Olympus E-450, which I believe is about 10 years old,Continue reading “Walking into Town”
Time passes. I think we have all noticed that. Recently, on my morning walks, I have noticed some trees blossoming. But this photo is from three years ago. It was just a quick grab photo on my way to work. As you can see the light was very bright and contrasty, which made the blossomsContinue reading “Spring Blossom, Wokingham”
It has been a bleak spring day today, with driving wind and rain. So I thought I would post something from last summer instead. I go through phases with photography, sometimes for months I will just use digital cameras – and then I will change over and just use film cameras for a while. InContinue reading “Fisheye in the Park, West Sussex”
I may have posted pictures of this tree before – perhaps in a different season. As I recollect it, I was sitting on a bench, when I thought the tree reminded me of a still life or perhaps a Chinese landscape painting. So I took a picture.
I think I have walked around the park every day since the first lockdown. Normally, in the noise of work and rush, the seasons tend to pass outside the window, but because we have all been at home I have been able to notice the changes in the weather as the seasons pass. As youContinue reading “Trees in Fog, West Sussex”
Another morning walk picture. How has being in lockdown affected you? What do you do differently to before? I was going to write that I get up earlier, but that’s not true. I used to get up at 5am before, but then it was because I had to get ready for work, where as now,Continue reading “Tree in the Morning, West Sussex”
I think I have missed my morning walk once during lockdown. Yesterday, it was quite cool and misty early on – but by the time I went out for my walk, the Sun was up and throwing long, dark shadows. And there is a contrast with the morning mist, which is slowly being burned off.
Whether through design or cirumstance, seem to be photographing sunsets lately. In the UK, we have had sunshine for most of the lockdown period, which has made for some golden sunsets (see above). I’m wondering if the air is a little clearer because there are fewer cars on the roads – in the evening, thereContinue reading “Tree at Sunset, West Sussex”
Like most people, my outdoor photography has been restricted by the lock-down. Which is why I have been posting pictures of things I’ve seen on my exercise walks. I could post things from the past – places I’ve been – but it feels irrelvant at the moment. This is a picture of some leaves onContinue reading “Leaves, West Sussex”
