Thanks for your visit and also for your understanding.
A cold, November day. I remember my fingers being rather numb.
Below is a picture of the magnolia tree in our front yard (see my other blog for a photo of the tree in color and in the context of the front yard).
This is at a park down the street from our house.
For any camera/photo buffs who haven't been introduced to the Holga yet, take a few minutes to read the Holga link above... it's funny and it might just make you want to hop online and order one. If you do, happy shooting! Oh, and though most of the modifications are no longer necessary to make it photoworthy (the Chinese were actually paying attention to the online modification sites) some of the tips are handy to know.
Iron fence with gilded finials... I don't remember where this was.
So, there we are for a while. There are more London photos, but it'll be good to take a break for a while and do something else. Another location, perhaps, say France or China? We'll have to see.
This is Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, a very long operating pub/restaurant that several fairly famous figures in history used to frequent and which was rebuilt after the Great London Fire of 1666. I couldn't resist and actually did eat lunch here.
In general, I'm all for black and white. However, for these photos I've yet to make up my mind. Which (if either) do you find more effective? I'm torn.
Just a little background on photography in my life. My father gave me a 35mm camera when I was a young teen and it was love at first shot. Since then, I've started collecting more photo equipment of different kinds and have been teaching myself some technique, though I've got a long way to go to get where I want to be regarding photography. It's still all trial and error.
Hopefully there will be something here that interests you. To me, it's photo play.
