So, after an eventful week in Ibiza we are back home in (not so sunny) Staffordshire. With no travel plans upcoming, it’s an opportunity to become familiar with the little Fujifilm X100F camera I bought just before we went away. I plan to shoot much more mono, so expect to see that reflected here.
A traditional lych gate entrance at a little church near Whitmore that we pass regularly.
Mono seems to suit graveyards…
It’s quite common to see swans on the canal near here, but I’d never seen them nesting until today. This is actually someone’s front garden – I think I would be nervous getting too close when mowing the lawn!
… came the sunshine. This morning’s short, sharp fall of snow caught everyone out around here – it looked like we had missed the snow that blanketed most of the UK yesterday, but it was not to be. Anyway, it didn’t last long; the sun came out and by midday it was mostly gone. Whether we get more remains to be seen…
… a day makes. After the glorious sunset yesterday, today’s weather couldn’t have been any different. It started off dull and overcast, then a heavy mist with drizzle seemed to overtake the whole landscape, blotting everything out and making driving difficult. Let’s hope for better tomorrow.
When we moved to the area, this was a Methodist Chapel, but was abandoned soon afterwards due to lack of use. For a while it was a furniture workshop, but looks pretty run down now with an old caravan dumped outside. I wonder what the future holds for this old building?
