I have a day off work as it’s my daughters school prom later. Had some free time earlier, before all the running around we’ll be doing shortly…So I had a wander around town, camera in hand.
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.
‘Get in quick!”
Just a quick post of a few things that caught my eye this morning. The fourth shot is today’s ‘Images not words’ picture.
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.
