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 […]

Christmas, Bath & Cigars

7/11/15 – Some street art at eastbourne gate in taunton – i quite like it but there were loads of comments in the local paper from people who did not like it 21/11/15 – A trip to lyme 22/11/15 – firepool redevelopment project next to river tone 6/12/15 – another trip to lyme – the […]

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 […]

Leica M8 with Rawtherapee

These were mainly shot at f/4 although Leica digital cameras cannot record aperture as there is no data link between the lens and the body. I quite like the B&W preset profiles in Rawtherapee – there are 4 to choose from. 1/125s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 1/250s, iso640 1/180s, iso320 1/125s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 […]

mural

A mural that has recently been painted on Taunton’s “third way” – it cost £1000 to paint but it does seem to brighten up an otherwise rather featureless bit or hoarding just noticed capture nx2 has a feature to set the grey point which is handy compared with setting colour temperature which seems a bit […]

Crosses

I think I’m starting to get the hang of editing the D2X raw files using Capture NX2. It is quite different from the “modern” D700 which I previously owned, and being one of the oldest Nikon DSLR cameras it does not have “picture control” support. This actually makes things quite simple as there are basically […]

Ricoh GR Week 2

Had the Ricoh GR now almost 2 weeks and I’m starting to get more used to the larger size of it compared with the GRD IV. Just noticed that Rawtherapee has been upgraded on my Ubuntu 12.04LTS system – now on 4.0.11.0 – not sure what updates have been included yet The rather desolate waste […]

Old Photos

Time for a look at some more “old” shots from my D700. This group has a bit of a “dark” theme.   At the end of 2011 I started using flash quite a bit and got a Nikon SB910, which I sold in favour of an SB24 which cost about 10% of what the former cost. […]

Old Photos

Just been having a look through some of my old photos from the D700 – have been busy backing up my archives from this camera. A few months ago I pruned down my D700 archives from about 20000 shots to about 1000 as it’s easy to end up with so many shots it becomes hard […]
