Places I Miss Because of COVID-19 #2

With all the uncertainty at the moment and lock downs as a result of COVID-19 I thought – as have a number of others – it might be nice to shine a spotlight on places that you miss going to because you are currently not allowed. Part of the reason for sharing the places IContinue reading “Places I Miss Because of COVID-19 #2”

English Heritage 2nd Year of Membership – still bloody great value

Re-posting of an old blog from 2013. We have a family membership for English Heritage. We originally joined back in 2011, and apart from a couple of years in the middle we have been members ever since. I have previously reposted a blog from the old Fujifilm site about our first year of membership (EnglishContinue reading “English Heritage 2nd Year of Membership – still bloody great value”

Peterborough Cathedral

Those of you who have read much of my blog will know that one of my favourite subjects to photograph is Peterborough Cathedral. Right in the centre of Peterborough, it is something of a hidden gem. I thought it was time to show some more photos of the Cathedral and that now might be aContinue reading “Peterborough Cathedral”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror

The next WP I am going to respond to is Mirror, capturing reflections in whatever you happen to see them in: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/mirror/ There are of course lots of things that you get reflections in – mirrors, glasses, bodies of water, metallic objects and so on. Each of these gives differing levels of reflectivity. Some willContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror”

Through My Eyes – My First Exhibition

Just over a month ago now – time seems to have got away from me – I had my first exhibition. It was held in Bewiched Coffee in Peterborough where I have had some items on the walls for some time now.     This was originally at the suggestion of the branch manager ofContinue reading “Through My Eyes – My First Exhibition”

Monochromatic Musings

The theme from the photo challenge for the week beginning 11th September (yes, I am running a little behind again) is monochromatic. Monochromatic is not simply black and white, though this is a good example. A monochromatic image is one that is composed of different gradients of the same colour. So another example would beContinue reading “Monochromatic Musings”

Inspiration

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.” Playing a bit of catch up on the weekly photo challenges having made a brief start and then missing a few. I’m not going to do all I have missed just one or two, and this one caught my interest. Inspiration. What is it thatContinue reading “Inspiration”

Reflections

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.” One of my favourite places to photograph is Peterborough Cathedral. It is a very large grand Norman cathedral with some stunning artwork and architecture. One of the things to look for in particular is the nave painted wooden ceiling which was completed between 1230Continue reading “Reflections”

English Heritage membership – what bloody great value!

As per my re-start post I am going to be re-blogging some of my posts from a site that unfortunately no longer exists in an effort to get working on my blog again. As with other posts of old blogs the photos are as taken with the exception of some cropping. This blog was originallyContinue reading “English Heritage membership – what bloody great value!”

Berlin 2012: Day 6 – Potsdam

As per my re-start post I am going to be re-blogging some of my posts from a site that unfortunately no longer exists in an effort to get working on my blog again. This was the first big blog collection I worked on, wanting to add a bit more substance rather than just a few pictures.Continue reading “Berlin 2012: Day 6 – Potsdam”
