Fearless

While walking home with my wife, camera always in hand I saw this teenage girl walking on the top of the sea wall in Sheerness. Before I snapped this picture she was running along the seawall. Very silly really, it’s a 20 foot drop to the footpath below!

I’m starting to relearn how to use zone focusing with this camera. It has really taken me back to basics with this camera, and this image was taken using the sunny sixteen rule.

Shore Bones

Taken on Sheerness seafront, one of the old Victorian groynes slowly being weathered away which has given the timbers over the years the look of old bones. One part of the wood the grain looks like a some sort of tribal tattoo.

Queuing for the train

The Bure Valley Railway is a 15 inch (38 cm) minimum gauge heritage railway in Norfolk, England. The railway runs from Wroxham to Aylsham and is Norfolk’s longest railway of less than standard gauge.

Always looking for a picture I noticed the reflection of the people queuing for the next train in the carriage windows opposite.

Welcome…

This is my dog Charlie and the first picture I have taken with my Leica M4-2. The camera is a joy to use, wonderful simple camera but you may notice the image is not sharp, indeed if you look at his ears, you’ll see where the depth of field is…
