June's Pictures

Peacock (Minolta X500)

Coming up to the second anniversary of Zamyatin I'm getting a little weepy. So I thought I might add a picture or two from the archive that sort of started it all. I'm not saying that the Scotland holiday two years ago prompted the website but the first pic was from the holiday two years ago. And instead of chucking the holiday pictures live two years ago (which I think was a good idea) I started on a weekly quest to see as I saw. Here is a Peacock in at Drummond Castle that I waited for ages to get. The bird paraded and then stopped at which I took interest so I waited for a bit, then a little longer and then, snap, I got the picture I was looking for.

Imperial War Museum Again
Imperial War Museum Again (QTEK 9100)

This weekend we went to the the Lowry but from across from the Lowry you can get a great picture of the Imperial War Museum. It's not a bad shot, but then again there were so many shots I could have got with a better camera of the War Museum and the Lowry. I didn't have much time to look around the outside of the Lowry but I did spy one shot I could have got if I'd have had a zoom lens which of course wouldn't have fitted onto the QTEK and I may as well forget the digital zoom because all that does is kill the picture quality. Why did I not bring the camera bag.

On a different note I have started to take my waterproof camera on every bike trip. A strange thing to do you might think, but one one day back from work I saw a couple of kids running around a jet of water springing from ground in Ardwick on my way home. If I'd have had a camera I'd have been able to take a shot, but I didn't used to take a camera because it rains every so often when I ride to work. Problems solved, waterproof camera in my rucksack, that should insure that nothing interesting ever happens on my trips in and out of work.

Liverpool Silhouette
Liverpool Silhouette (Minolta X500)

Just outside the Museum in the centre of Liverpool is this sight. I wish I'd have looked at what the statue was so I could tell you about it. If I'm lucky someone will comment on this picture and tell you/me, however I suspect I'll get the same old spam from the comments.

Duck Again
Duck Again (Minolta X500)

Another picture of Heaton Park and only developed later. No explanations are needed here really in that it's a duckling and it's sat down... near a stick... in Heaton Park. Is there any more you need to know. Oh it was taken with the Minolta with the zoom lens. Happy?

Papal Rock
Papal Rock (Nikon F3 T)

No this is not a new Groove Armada single this is the stone that was placed as a monument to the Pope's visit to Heaton Park in 1982 which is connected to the Papal Monument post in that it was taken at the same time and developed later i.e. now.

Dunblane Cathedral
Dunblane Cathedral (QTEK 9100)

In a quick trip out from the main event which was Crieff we just kept on driving. First to Braco and then onward to Dunblane where we had a look at the Cathedral. There were quite a few pictures I could have included today but this one stood out. In a small room on a corner of the Cathedral is this. I have a few 35mm shots that I would be interested in seeing, though this will all take time but they should be better I hope. I took many shots with the QTEK but the basic shot of the detail of the window and no fancy stuff looked the best, though I'm that won't be the case of the film versions which I have yet to see.
