Arley's Pictures

Arley Fly-ing Visit
Arley Fly-ing Visit (Nikon D5000)

So this weekend we ended up at Arley Hall again. It was strangely warm weather so we made the most of it. As usual when we go somewhere and in particular Arley Hall, there is something on. This weekend there was a food festival. So there were no leisurely walks to be seen until we found out that the gardens were out of bounds. So we hit the shop to get a ticket to the gardens only to be hit with a woman who tried to make my life simple. I personally couldn't work it out. You couldn't get in to the Hall grounds without paying, yet after she charged us £18 for the gardens she asked us if we had paid to get into Arley Hall. Well this caused problems because we shouldn’t have paid something or some other so she tried to refund us. It took a while and she cound't work it out so we had to go back. In the end she refunded us £12 but to this day I am not sure what the heck this was all about. I'm also not sure she understood, but there you go.

Anyway in this return visit I decided to take a pic of another statue around a fountain in the grounds just opposite this one. This time I seem to have taken a worse picture with a better camera and got a snapshot of a fly in mid-flight. What are the chances of that happening.

Just Say Ahh
Just Say Ahh (FujiFilm FinePix 1600)

On a trip tp Arley Hall I took this. I wouldn't mind but I waited a while until there was nobody in shot. I was trying out the Macro mode on the camera and the suddenly someone appered, so I changed my angle and took the shot like a bad marksman. You can see her arm on the right.

The picture is of a lamb stone sculpture around a fountain at Arley Hall.
