Was browsing the archive and found this which I thought was worth sharing

Bubbles

Can’t decide whether I like this; I was trying to capture bubbles blowing past me whilst I was waiting at the Disney park recently, it was getting darker as the evening was approaching so I was limited on aperture settings.  It was also busy with people walking about, not sure if they add or take away from the image.

There’s lots going on; the bubbles, people walking past, a boy dropped his water, other people are  sitting in the background.

I decided to go with a Street Photography look and make it black and white.

Sleeping stranger

I very rarely take pictures of people especially strangers but for some reason I was fixated with this sleeping guy’s face and couldn’t resist taking a sneaky snap.

Voigtlander Bessamatic

This is not a review more a tale of disappointment.

Recently I spotted an interesting potential addition to my collection on the auction site and decided to bid.  The auction was for a Voigtlander Bessamatic which came with the very rare Zoomar lens.  The Zoomar lens was the first zoom lens ever for 35mm cameras and was invented by Voigtlander.   Continue reading “Voigtlander Bessamatic”

Gardens at Clivedon House

Another day out we managed during the recent trip home to the UK was to Cliveden (pronounced CLIV-den) House.

The house itself is a hotel but the gardens are open to the public and managed by the National Trust.  This is also the venue for a large flower show annually run by the Royal Horticultural Society; we just went on a normal day though.

Cliveden has a rich history;  Once the home of Nancy Astor Continue reading “Gardens at Clivedon House”
