Day 342 – Christmas Message…

I’m not often seen inside a church, but the Christmas Carol Service in the local parish church is not to be missed. Full of families with kids, lots of carols, and mince pies and mulled wine afterwards. This simple tree decoration makes a powerful image…

Day 340 – End Of The Day…

I pass this little country church quite often, but never when there is any kind of service going on, so always easy to park outside. It was very late in the afternoon today when I passed by, and I could see the last rays of sunshine on some of the gravestones, so stopped for a quick photo. This gravestone seems to stand out from all those around…

Day 296 – A Spot Of Colour…

We are never going to see autumn colours here to rival those in New England, but they are pretty impressive nevertheless. This tree is just a mile or so from home and the best of the colours are coming through now …

Day 280 – Looking Over Us…

These two figures guard the entrance to the Greek Orthodox Church in Fira, Santorini. They sit very high in the air and appear to look down on people passing by. Positioning them in front of the huge church roof in the photo exaggerates their scale.

Day 279 – Blue Is The Colour…

I’ve seen lots of photos of Greece with the blue or white colour of church roofs, but I was still surprised at just how vibrant the colours are when set against a clear blue sky. This is another church in Fira, the main city in Santorini.

Day 277 – Blue On Blue…

One thing that Greece (and the Greek islands) is famous for are the little churches with their blue roofs. It’s hard to travel more than a few yards in any small town without coming across one. Set against the almost permanent blue sky, they make an attractive picture.

Day 215 – Black And White…

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.
