Feeding the ducks at Reddish Vale part 2.
Feeding the ducks at Reddish Vale.
As we were coming home hereís what the sunset looked like for the k700i. Such a pity it didnít get all the detail, the craggy tree and the lines across the sky from the sun. Makes me feel that I should do what I always said I would, and that is, take my Rollei 35b everywhere. Itís small and takes really good pictures that you actually have control over.
Oh dear, my beloved Telescopes album has gone to the record shelf in the sky. Very upsetting for two reasons. The first is I donít seem to be able to get it again. The second is that I chose today to rip it as an MP3 file just in case something happened to it. I shall get the culprit who broke it believe me.
A crane in the centre of Manchester taken from as a reflection from Malmaisonís window, you can see the blinds if you look close. What you can also see is where the brightest bit of the sun is. There was a black spot in the sun on the photo due to the cameras detector getting saturated by the brightness of the sun. This has been edited out.
Our poor cat, not only has he had to put up with my daughter, he how has to put up with someone putting a pair of knickers in his head. He puts up with everything admirably.
Manchester Road after heavy rain. The sun somes out and it looks quite nice... well I think so.
Today's game is spot the fake. Which one do you think?
I received both pound coins as a leaving gift and only one of them is a fake. This isnít me being ungrateful at all believe me, itís just since I married someone who deals with money day in day out I now know what a fake pound coin looks like. Iím not good with notes by the way.
For those who need help itís the one on the right. OK it looks just like a battered pound coin, but thatís not it. When you look at it in reasonable light thereís a silvery quality that you canít see in the scan here, however without that it still looks like a fake. I just thought that this would be of interest to people who spend pounds. I suspect from a forging point of view they are easier to pass off after all they are only a pound, but if you mint enough then it amounts a great deal of cash for the counterfeiters.
A new arrival a grape vine. What's going to happen to it no-one knows. There are grapes there, but they were on it when it was bought. Seen some new growth, who knows. I have this stupid wish to see it fill all three sides of the garden... it'll never survive winter. That's not a scarecrow, it's my daughter. The shot was worked out quite well, waiting for the sun to cast a shadow, getting my daughter in the correct place. It's the execution that let it down.
Stockport's Pyramid, which is owned by the Coop Bank in the distance with the mess of roads in front. Seemed a better picture in my head.
Early morning and the same picture out of our back window as a couple of days ago. The sky is better. Not that I obsess about the weather at all.
7 Mile Bridge (does what it says on the can really) driving from Key West. This was taken a while ago with the DV 5. The bridge on the left is the old bridge that is now in disrepair.
It's been a slow start of the month for pictures hence an archive photo.
I just liked the greyness of this. Looked better in person. I think the blue poking through the grey helps, a few seconds later as I was grabbing this off the camera the sky went completely grey and didn't look impressive at all.
