Week Three in Lock Down

La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires

We’ve now been in lockdown for two weeks in the UK and will shortly enter our third. I won’t complain as we’ve got it a lot easier than many countries. My daughter who lives in France has been in lockdown for two months. Her restrictions are also a lot tighter than here. Despite thinking I … Continue reading Week Three in Lock Down

Super Lens Performance on the Fuji X-T2

I mentioned in a recent post that I purchased a new 32mm Zeiss prime for my Fuji X-T2. If you read the post, you’re probably thinking I’m going to tell you how great the Zeiss is. But I’m not. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with the Zeiss lens and will be doing a … Continue reading Super Lens Performance on the Fuji X-T2

Walking with my Camera – Crowden

Yesterday the weather forecast was promising to be good. It was cold, around 2 degrees Celsius with sunny intervals. It looked ideal weather for a short walk with my camera and probably worth driving out a little. After flicking through a few walking books, we decided to drive over to Crowden. I suspect many of … Continue reading Walking with my Camera – Crowden

Friday Image No. 164

Despite this we decided to wait it out in Padley Gorge and eventually we had a dry spell, or at least dry … Continue reading Friday Image No. 164

Friday Image No.161

I was torn today between the shots I could share for the weekly Friday image. I seem to have some great alternatives I could show.

Updating Equipment and Software

I don’t know about you but my email in box has been flooded with email over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend. It has though provided me with two opportunities: A great time to unsubscribe from a lot of lists of people who only want to sell me stuff but don’t provide additional value. … Continue reading Updating Equipment and Software

Yesterday I visited Harrogate, taking my wife to an exhibition. Whilst I was in the area I decided to visit Bolton Abbey. Last time I visited I was at school so that that should tell you it was a very long time ago. I also decided to take along the Fuji X-T2 in case any … Continue reading Friday Image No. 160

Heading Out With A Purpose

At the weekend, I did something I haven’t done before. I headed up into the hills behind Dovestones reservoir for photography. Now I need to qualify that statement as I have taken plenty of photographs in the area. The difference this time is that I was heading out for the purpose of photography and nothing … Continue reading Heading Out With A Purpose
