A Covid concert? No, just a photo-shoot.
Today, a 3 mile stroll around the golf course, through the woods, crossing the normally busy ‘mad mile’, then along part of the London Loop, followed by a sleep in a garden chair.
I tried to capture the reflection of a bright-orange sunset in this framed photo of a Lisbon night scene – but it didn’t work out! However further fiddling with Photoshop settings produced this rather meaningless image.
A tree – click it!
Taken at 9pm, the stars / earth must have moved during the 30 second shutter speed!
I took this picture just before 9pm – it was very dark, but 15 seconds exposure, ISO 400, f/6.3 and manual focus, it’s amazing what a little camera can capture. Plus a little help from Photoshop!
It’s not often I visit the main library but I’m glad I did as I came across a lovely, small exhibition of glass plate portrait prints. There’s a web site about the larger collection and a full set of images can be found on a Flickr site. It’s a fascinating collection that was discovered in the basement of a shop seventy years after the plates were abandoned by the photographer David Knights-Whittome.
The weather has deteriorated – I think it’s even worse in the West. Playing around with manual focus on my Sony RX100 I could get the raindrops on the window pane into focus. It’s just possible to make out the the reflection of the park in the raindrops (blown-up 2nd image).
Some early morning mist, a few vapour trails, a bit of Photoshop.
Out the window, early in the morning. When you’ve got a stinking cold what else is there to do?
