The fisherwoman

Just a quick one for todays shot.

The Fisher-woman

This is actually a woman fishing in the late afternoon sun.

The Boys

I caught this shot whilst walking through St Annes. At the time of taking the shot I didn’t see the two lads. My intention was just to take a picture of the bloke on his phone and then turn it into black  and white.

When I brought the image up on the computer I thought they looked a bit menacing.

Hasidic

Walking through the park today, I saw an unusual sight.

hacidic

I think they belong to a particular sect of Judaism. If I am right they are called Hasidic Jews. They do not shave the sides of their face because of a biblical commandment, which is why they have extremely long sideburns. They were speaking Yiddish which is a language particular to Jews.

Air Ambulance

As I was walking back through Stanley Park, I noticed the Air Ambulance coming in. It regularly flies really low over our house and lands on Lawsons Field which is just a couple of minutes walk from where we live.

Air Ambulance

This is a shot of it just taking off. The air ambulance does a fantastic job, especially as it receives no government funding and raises its money through charity.

Lambs

On todays walk I saw the first duckling of the year. Later on I saw these lambs.

As I was hungry all I could think of was a Roast Lamb dinner with lashings of mint sauce.

Vintage Car

I was walking down a country lane when I heard a deep rumble. It can’t be thunder with this nice weather. I turned around and saw a vintage car speeding towards me.

By the time I had altered the settings on the camera, it was too late to get a front on shot. Another second or two and I would have missed the shot altogether.

Jasmine

Just a quick one today. After a really busy weekend it is time to relax before the big game tonight.

This is our Siamese cat Jasmine. She is twelve, I’m not sure how old that is in cat years but she is quite old for a pedigree.

Reflections

Grabbed a shot of  a reflection of a group of trees.

Entwistle

It reminds me of one of Monets paintings

Feeding the pigeons

When I was walking Ruby this morning I saw this guy feeding the pigeons.

Pigeons

What a great expression!

Tulips

As I was walking Ruby through the park I noticed these Tulips…

After taking a few pictures from different angles. I found that this one worked best. I could really do with one of those flip screen lcd thingies because it was really difficult to see what I was shooting.
