This week began with me up North, in Yaaawkshire (actually, it is Yorkshire but I wanted to try and spell it phonetically. Phonetic for those that speak with the endearing Yorkshire accent). Then I came home, and got tired, so Monday was, well.. Uninspired? You’ll see, and you can judge.
16.01.10. Whitby, north England. A beautiful sea side town. I rested the camera on the rail on the bridge we were crossing to get this one as my hand held shots were just not steady enough.
17.01.10. This seagull is showing Captain Cook no respect!! Captain Cook is a Whitby born explorer who happened to discover Australia. There is a tiny replica of one of his boats, the Endeavour a top a mast.
18.01.10. Monday. I didn’t take a pic until late in the day. Almost an afterthought really! This is some Lego I was gifted for my birthday last year. My 28th, but never too old for this. I set them up on some lids of white media storage boxes to keep the background clean. Judge away for the lack of inspiration (and my camera’s inability to take non noisy shots inside!)
19.01.10. Tower Bridge, London enroute home after a dinner out with friends. Again, same as in last week. I need to take the time to really stop and take my night shots. Get my tripod (it’s only a gorilla grip) out if need be. Still, I like this shot as it shows a true London icon from a different angle.
20.01.10. Kennington Tube station. An integral part of my commute. This was enroute to work, so around 7.45am?
21.01.10. A bound tree at Canary Wharf. Closer up than the pic last week. I’m a sucker for fairy lights in trees.
22.01.10. Colourful water fountains in some gardens at Canary Wharf. Teal is one of my fav colours so I couldn’t not snap these! It took a few shots to capture actual streams of water and not just teal blobs. Darkness and a moving target made the shot hard. I also spent a lot of time focussing on just the one fountain but on review, I liked this pic the most, showing a few more.
