Day 230 – Admiring Glances…

This 1959 Mini has clearly seen better days, but nevertheless attracted a lot of attention at our local Festival of Transport held today.

Day 228 – Storm Clouds Gathering…

Another appalling day’s weather today – pretty much wall to wall heavy rain all day. At least the forecast for tomorrow is more promising…

Day 224 – Pot Of Gold…

The rather unsettled weather just lately has seen storms, heavy rain, strong winds and sunshine all in the same day, and today has been no exception. Late this afternoon a sharp shower followed by bright sunshine created this beautiful rainbow over the fields around us.

Day 218 – Red Letter Day…

Just sometimes, it all comes together! I was wandering around Shrewsbury this afternoon and saw this guy in a red jacket walking towards me, with a red post box and phone box close by. With the camera set to f8 and auto everything, I literally just managed one shot, and it worked…

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.

Day 203 – A Gardener’s Paradise…

This is part of the Italienate Gardens at Trentham, near Stone.
