Brooklands Museum is somewhere I have wanted to visit for a while, so I took the opportunity when a fellow member of my camera club suggested a trip there.  The occasion was its annual Double Twelve Motorsport Festival on 17 June.  If I am honest, I was not entirely sure what that involved, but it […]

  Not so much as Photo of the Day on this occasion, more like Experiment of the Day.  Ever since I got my Fuji X-E2, I have developed an interest in using adapted lenses.  Mirrorless cameras with features such as focus peaking have made it easier to use lenses from other cameras.  All it requires […]

This is the first of two posts of my images from the Chelsea Flower Show.  I have already posted my main photo of the day, but I took many more.  Once again it was a good event, although overall I did feel that it did not quite match previous years.  A number of regular sponsors […]

I have been going to the Chelsea Flower Show for a few years and it is always an enjoyable day out.  It represents the ultimate in gardening, even if everything on display is a construct.  Ephemeral, the show gardens exist for a brief period with one ultimate aim.  To be in peak condition when the […]

I will have more to say about Sark, the fourth largest of the Channel Islands, in a later post.  In the meantime, here is a shot which I took this morning.  After a couple of days of overcast weather with just a bit of sun, the forecast of heavy rain for the day proved to be […]

When starting this blog just over a year ago, I was not entirely sure what I would write about.  My only idea was to do pieces on anything which came to mind and see how I progressed.  As anyone who has been following me for the last few months will observe, my main interest lies […]

Ely was close to the route home from Norfolk, so I took the opportunity to stop off there.  It is somewhere I have long wanted to visit.  The cathedral is the tallest building in the area, dominating the city and its surroundings.  It is from this visibility that it derives its nickname, “Ship of the […]

If you had asked me where I expected to get my favourite image during my camera club’s long weekend in Norfolk, I would have said How Hill.  The River Ant, which is the location of this photo, flows past and is a scenic spot.  We had visited the previous day and opted to return for […]

Another shot of Norwich Cathedral, this time of the interior looking from the Choir towards the High Altar.  The cathedral normally opens later in the morning, but our group had permission for a shoot beforehand when there was no one else around.  The only proviso was that we did not enter until after Morning Prayer […]
