Day 347 – Food Bank…

Image

The dependence on food banks in the UK has seen a four fold increase in the last 5 years, and yesterday’s election win by the Conservatives will securely increase that. We made up two Christmas food parcels like this to help the less fortunate in our area – a mix of staple foods and some Christmas treats that will hopefully bring some cheer to disadvantaged families…

Day 338 – Misty River…

On our way home this afternoon after lunch with family we could see a rather nice sky developing as we drove near the River Severn at Arley. A quick diversion took us down to the river, where we were rewarded with a beautiful sunset, and mist forming on the river. With nowhere to park, and no time to set up my Sony camera, this was a quick shot using my phone…

Day 328 – The Best Camera…

… is the one you have with you. A little bit of sun in an otherwise grey day, just as we arrived at Watergate Bay. No time to get the Sony camera out, so a grab shot with the iPhone. A few seconds later the light had gone for the day…

Day 323 – A New Baby…

Camera, that is. I’ve had a 35mm film camera for a while now (a lovely Olympus OM2N) but it’s not really pocket friendly, so it doesn’t get out much. I’d picked up a mint Trip 35, but that’s fairly basic – pretty much point and press, so was on the lookout for something small, but capable of good results. So this little Olympus XA presented itself – seems to be in good condition and has a coupled rangefinder and aperture settings, so let’s see how it performs.

Day 310 – Ready For Action…

Tomorrow is a photo day in Birmingham with my brother. Plan is to meet for coffee and a catchup, then explore a few parts of the city and see what photos we can make. He will be tooled up with his Leica film and digital cameras, whereas I will just have my trusty Sony. Should be fun!
