Down town

13 images

We had a lazy day yesterday, which was a welcome change.

Wasn’t long before I got the urge to get out of the house though, plus nothing inside was inspiring me to photograph for my 366 project.

Grabbed hat, gloves, coat and camera and set out for a walk down town.

Not the town center where all the shops are of course, but around some of the areas leading into the town.

I took two lenses with me; the Sigma 18-50mm F2.8EX and my Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 EX, which I attached first to try to get some different perspectives.

Ended up walking a lot further than I had planned and was properly tired when I arrived home.

Was pleased with some of the shot I came back with.

Hope you like them too.

Rainy China town

Took a trip to London Yesterday for our son’s 13th birthday. The years seem to fly by.

Visited the museum of childhood in Bethnal Green, then headed to China town for a fab evening meal.

The heavens opened.

My camera gear isn’t waterproof but I wasn’t going to let that deter me from grabbing a few shots.

Dried off my camera with a paper tissue and all is fine.

Off the beaten track

‘Off the beaten track’

Innocent or illicit?

Assumption is the mother of all f**k-ups.

Had a short wander around Hastings earlier, saw that the alley behind the Observer building was open. Snapped these two, then went in.

Around the corner I would bump into a fellow photography enthusiast I know from Twitter but had never met.

We had a nice chat then parted company. I still only know him by his Twitter handle.

Walked back round to leave and spotted the two lads from earlier and asked if I could take their picture.

The result is today’s Images not words shot.

 A good day.

The past

‘The Past’

It’s said that history repeats itself.

It seems that way sometimes.

We are told that we should learn from history.

From our past mistakes.

And for a short time we do.

But mankind is fickle.

History repeats itself.

Doing my 366 project ‘Images not words’ is really pushing me to think about photography and art, to look for interesting things the whole day through. Yesterday was a good day and yielded handful of images I was quite pleased with. Alas, only one per day can go into the project, which forces me to think yet again about which would be the best to choose.

The rest I can upload as a normal blog post.

My brain hurts.
