Photo catch up

22/2/16 – A trip to Plymouth – This green domed building looks quite interesting – it is called the immersive vision theatre http://i-dat.org/ivt/ 22/2/16 – this seems quite a good idea for people who don’t want to carry their lock everywhere – since getting a brompton 3 years ago I have forgotten how heavy locks can […]

Bristol, rain drenched & dried

23/1/16 – Still getting to grips with the EFX20, have had it almost exactly a month now 30/1/16 – A trip to Bristol, not been there for about 4 months and luckily the weather was good for the day – this was quite near finzels reach 30/1/16 – view from the riverbank near bristol bridge […]

Cardiff Film & Comic Con March 2016

5/3/16 Cardiff film and comic con at the motorpoint arena – visited the same venue only about 3 months before for a concert with whitesnake, black star riders and def leppard It was pretty crowded and quite difficult to get a good framing with so many people getting in the way. Vigo the carpathian painting […]

Dismaland, Quantocks and Cat

We were pretty fortunate to get dismaland tickets as they seem to go within seconds of being released. Luckily a ticket did become available BUT it was £20 per head instead of the expected £5 however this was due to it being a friday evening slot with various bands on stage. It was a bit […]

A week off

Not strictly part of my week off, this was the preceding weekend – a land rover was parked outside sainsburys in taunton FULL of balloons! I think there was some sort of competition along the lines of “guess the number of balloons” This seems a bit an annual event – the sidmouth regatta – with […]

Exeter, Seagull and Flower Show

I had not been to Exeter for a while so decided a trip there was in order – it has the advantage of being only 25 minutes away by train. I have tended to get out at Exeter St Davids, however Exeter Central was the same price and only about 3 minutes by train between […]

Back from Holiday

It’s a month or so now since I got back from Vienna so thought I’d check out what I images I had collected – mainly locally in an around taunton but a few from lyme as well. This chap had a puppet on his arm while crossing the road The lift in Paul Street car […]

Vienna

Day 1 – Sunday 7th June This is the road outside the Hotel – this is really “Day 2” as we had already spent a full 24 hours travelling from Taunton to Vienna by train, but “Day 1” actually in Vienna. The worst bit was finding someone already in our cabin on the night train […]

Old Photos

Been sorting through some of my old photos again. Originally I had quite a lot of photos on Flickr and other similar places, but gradually it seemed like my photos were fragmented over various sites in a sort of disjointed way, so it made more sense to only post photos to a single site, hence […]

Brompton Dock

Since having my bike stolen a couple of months ago I have been thinking of getting a Brompton folding bike as a replacement. Although I do not have a train based commute, I like the way the bike can be quickly folded and taken into the office rather than being stored in a bike shed. […]

Branscombe

Amazingly for a bank holiday Monday the weather was not bad. There was quite a bit of sea fog near the south Devon coast yesterday, especially round the Exe estuary, but there was still plenty of sun at Branscombe although there was some fog at times. Branscombe has an excellent pub called The Masons Arms […]

Weymouth

Still using the D3100 for this trip to Weymouth, hoping to get the Ricoh GR soon, but it has not yet been released for general sale, so still a couple of weeks I expect, possibly longer. The weather was a bit dull, but luckily not raining. I have done some experimenting with presets in Rawtherapee, […]

Lyme Regis

Thought I’d use the D3100 for a change for this trip to Lyme – it takes a bit of getting used to switching from LCD on the GRD IV to viewfinder on the D3100. This is Herbies chip bar – used them before and got a nice portion of chips cooked to order, but went […]

Easter Sunday

The weather was actually pretty good for a bank holiday, so a visit to Brean Down seemed like a good idea.   This is the first day of British Summer Time, which is a bit of a shock to the system, and I wonder what is the point of it.   Why make the evenings lighter just […]

West Somerset Railway

Surprisingly for a bank holiday weekend the weather was not too bad The good thing about the West Somerset Railway is that it does not involve more than a few minutes driving each way They always have a good selection of real ales in the buffet car At Williton there is normally another train going […]

Lyme Regis

Some shots from Lyme Regis on Wednesday with the Ricoh GRD IV.    I had only just got the camera so was not too sure about all the settings at that stage. Luckily I soon figured out the basics like how to disable jpeg, as this just takes up extra disk space. I got a “free” […]
