I’m not generally a fan of image manipulation, either in camera or using software, but am a sucker for a nice zoom burst photo. This ancient oak stands beyond the top of our garden, and was the perfect subject to test out my new 24-70mm lens…
Checkpoint Charlie was the name given by the Western Allies to the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War (1947–1991). All that remains is this guard post (probably not even the original one…)
At our local doctor’s today for my annual flu injection, I was taken by this glass window feature. High up in the side wall of the surgery it allows a soft light to fall on patients below. A monochrome treatment renders it as an abstract pattern.
Surprising what details you see when you look around – this is the side of our local Argos store. I’ve never really noticed the detailing as it’s high up on the wall. Not sure of the significance of the pattern – probably just a random scattering of the discs.
Well, not really – we arrived back at Heathrow Terminal 5 tonight, and these are the lights in the ceiling of the baggage claim area. They look better in mono than colour…
The leaves on the trees are turning, and the annual plants in the garden are losing their leaves. This ‘Ladies Mantle’ is one of the last to die back, and always seems to hold drops of water on its shapely leaves. Mono makes an interesting change from the usual colour image.
Unusual to see banners advertising car parking. This was in Stafford, where there are quite a few car parks, but not much in the way of shops to encourage shoppers to visit.
