Here be dragons!

i quite like this dragon outside the brewhouse with the words “waterside house” – i remember seeing this dragon being painted in the orchard centre a firey dragon outside the cosy club a dragon in the entrance to the library outside sainsburys in county walk with a red cross and plasters this dragon at the […]

Faces

These 2 faces are visible to anyone travelling eastbound along the A38 in central Taunton near the junction with Paul Street Faces 1/125s @ f/16 (iso 100) It also seems to be the place where they store their supplies of toilet rolls

No Photography without permission

This is the old St James’s street swimming pool in Taunton. I quite liked the various reflections here and the difference in white balance between the interior and the reflected light. I did not actually see the “no photography without permission” sign until I viewed the shot in capture nx2. As I was actually standing […]

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 […]

Vivary Park

Still getting used to the Nikon D2X DSLR – it seems to work quite well with my 28mm f/3.5 AI lens. I have not used a DSLR for a while now as I have mainly been using my Ricoh GR compact point and shoot camera. Both cameras have a 1.5x crop sensor but are at […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ricoh GRD IV

I have now got round to ordering my Ricoh GRD IV digital camera.   With any luck it could be arriving in the next day or so. I have noticed that I seem to switch between film and digital every couple of years: 2006:   Nikon D70s (Digital SLR) 2008: Holga (Medium Format Film Lomo) 2010: Nikon […]
