March's Pictures

The Queen is in Town
The Queen is in Town (Nikon D5000)

Since the Queen was in town yesterday for her Diamond Jubilee, what better to cenlebrate than a picture of... a wooden mouse. Yes its a visit to Chadkirk which has two advantages, the first advantage is that it's an hours walk from Marple so you can have a nice walk to it and back from Marple, the second is that they have a toilet that my Wife can use since she started needing the toilet before we set off. The only bad point is that if you are me and you go into the toilet and have a bit of a fart... this will echo in the chapel. Needless to say I walked back to my Wife and Daughter who were in creases sat in the chapel, I asked why and decided to leave out of embarrassment.

Anyway less about bodily functions and more about the picture. It's of another tree carving for my collection. At the top of the tree is a Woodpecker and at the base of the tree are at lease two of these. I took a picture of one of them thinking that it would be good as it was rather high contrast but it didn't look to good so I'm giving you this one, the one where the sun is directly behind me. See what you think.

Into Milano
Into Milano (Samsung Galaxy S)

It's not all fun fun fun as a Zamyatinite, sometimes we have to fly to nice places and run between transfers and drive for ages to get to where we are going and then have a four hour meeting. Still a view of the Alps is a bonus when you're flying from Zurich to Milan readying yourself for the airport and a drive to Lugano.

Despite what I said about HDR, this just looks good and since the camera on the Samsung is so bad into the sun I think I needed it.

Gloomy Wednesday
Gloomy Wednesday (Nikon D5000)

Blimey two pictures in one day, such lucky people you are.

This chap is from our house and not black and white believe it or not. I went out back for one reason or another and saw the moon was shining as bright as anything and splashing off the tiles on the roof next door and what with the telephone wires I thought it was a good picture... I could be wrong. Despite that by the time I got my camera the cloud started up and I stood there like a plum in my back garden for about five or ten minutes... yes that's the sort of commitment you get at Zamyatin. It was cold too, add that to the commitment stakes.

So there you go a pretty poor picture (because I would like to have got some definition of the moon but then again I don't think it was really possible, so I think I should be glad of what I got. No doubt if I showed this to my Wife I would get the usual that I get when I take a picture... “It's too dark”... you decide.

Spring Has Sprung
Spring Has Sprung (Nikon D5000)

Finally out of the house, not only has Spring sprung but so am I, sprung from all sorts. Not the best day for pictures and in fact the picture I should have taken should have been in my own back garden but there you go, somehow I decided not to take the shot jst because I couldn't be bothered which is a shame because I think it would have been better because the scene and the light was, so instead when it was nice and grey we all headed out to Fogg Lane Park which is pretty uninspiring for me since I had never been there and there's very little of note there to be honest but my Wife used to go there as a kid and it doesn't really matter how featureless the landscape, if it's there in a memory from years ago then it takes on a whole different meaning.

So here we go, daffodils in Fogg Lane Park, let the joy be unbounded.
