First of the cruise photos to make it to the site.
This is the Cunard Queen Victoria as she glided silently up the Solent past the Independence of the seas. It was fairly early in the morning, the weather was awful and I had no tripod.
Taken at colchester zoo in the spring, the RAW file was re-visited a while ago and I realised that this photo was begging for a caption.
You have to bear in mind that I was working my notice whan this was edited, and had just taken a random day off sick with nothing special to do…..
Been a long time. Haven’t I used the nifty fifty since the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 arrived in the kit bag, so now making a conscious effort to use it more.
Didn’t really get out much further than the back garden so ended up taking another one of the dog. Pensive look from Daisy in this one which was hand held at f1.8 with a shutter speed of 1/30 at iso 1600
Lord knows how old this caravan is. Located on the older hidden side of Thorney Bay caravan park it sits, mostly empty, waiting for someone to come. With no mod cons whatsoever, and separated from the more modern monstrosities, tranquility takes on a new meaning.
As for the owners, I last saw them some years ago. Themselves older than this lovely van. Someone still cares for it though. Someone is still paying the ground rent.
Welcome to the revised, new and improved site.
If you are a regular visitor, you will know that the old site got battered by delinquent Geeks somewhere in Timbuctoo, and was closed down to stop it spreading malicious code around the planet. You may also remember that the whole thing was exceedingly ugly and needed a re-write anyway. Given that it was initially set up to document the restoration of a 1972 Triumph Spitfire (which never happened) there were a lot of hits on the site that must have felt cheated. This time, it’s (hopefully) more relevant.
I will of course try and recover some of the more amusing posts from the old blog for the sake of posterity but generally speaking, it’s sensible and grown up (ish) hereafter.
Thanks for visiting, and please bookmark me as there will be regular updates.
