Street ramble 25.6

Took a leisurely walk around town today. Spotted a few interesting characters and happened upon a demonstration as well.

We’re living in interesting times, that’s for sure.



A few more

Once again I’ve had a quick sift through some shots taken over the past week or so.

Here are a handful I quite like that slipped through the net.

We’ve had mostly reasonably dry weather lately which has enabled me to take the opportunity to get out and about much more.

It’s not so nice today though, with constant rain pouring down all morning. Hopefully there will be a break in the drizzle later so I can get out to grab something for today’s ‘Images not words’ shot.


Saturday street walk


(7 pictures)

Went for a long walk around town yesterday with the camera to do a bit of photography. Took the slr and a couple of lenses instead of taking my trusty  compact Fuji for a change, but ended up just using my 18-50mm f2.8  set at f4 for the whole shoot. Definitely my favourite aperture currently for street photography with this lens.


Loved this chap in the hat. For a brief moment he seemed to fit in perfectly with the background. Looks like it could’ve been taken 50 years ago.


The great part about walking the backstreets in a town steeped in so much history, is that you can find areas that give you the feeling of having stepped back in time. Albeit for the briefest of moments.


Of course there’s always the odd element that spoil that nostalgic moment.






A fine walk and some shots I’m pleased with too.
