Met up with our 10 year old granddaughter today. Good opportunity to catch up after our week away, and also to try out the Moment 58mm iPhone lens converter in portrait mode. Love the perspective a ‘longer’ lens gives, and of course the ability of the iPhone XR to ‘adjust ‘ the effective depth of focus after the event.
The rather cooler weather now we are back in England came as a bit of a shock after our glorious week in Gran Canaria ☀️☀️. However, the crocuses in the garden obviously reckon that Spring is on the way… A chance too to try the new 58mm lens converter for my phone.
The hardy folks around here play tennis outdoors all year round. With three all weather courts, they even play through the winter, just as long as the playing surface isn’t too icy. This morning it was just 3.5°C, but the ladies were out there practicing as usual…
After the really miserable weather yesterday, today has been beautiful and sunny (but cold), culminating in this colourful sunset… However, the forecast is not promising – sleet and snow are expected over the next two days, and with travel disruption expected, my plans for the rest of the week look to be in jeopardy.
… with my strong arms outstretched, all alone but ever watchful.
… actually a bridge ‘to Farndon’. Built in 1339 (yes, 1339) this bridge crosses the River Dee, at this point the border between England and Wales. Only wide enough for one car at a time to cross, traffic is controlled by lights.
The Cherry Tree Hotel near Whitchurch must have seen some lively times over the years, both in it’s previous incarnation as the Witch Ball Inn, and latterly as a night club. It’s been abandoned for many years now and completely derelict. Project anyone?
