A complete change of direction today. No birds.
I sneaked out yesterday afternoon to buy Mrs. H some flowers, it being our anniversary today. She was left behind to make gingerbread men. This is something of a tradition in the house at this time of year. Sometimes the children join in but this year it was just Mrs. H.
I rarely go out without a camera, even if it just my iPhone and yesterday I managed to use the 5D3 as an excuse to hide my real intent. Just going for a walk with the camera dear, I chirped.
Here are 3 shots from the walk to the florist. The top one is my favourite alleyway. The lighting is usually good, it is not too busy but always has someone along the way and it suits B&W.
Then a real splash of colour. This is just a shutter door for a lock-up shop. However all the other shops on the street are a dull grey, often showing the ravages of time. For some reason this owner has elected to paint the shutters in bright colours and they cheer me up each time I walk by.
And finally good old Uncle Mak. Whether he is 96 as claimed or a mere 90 I don’t know but he is still working every day. He is the original Tin Man, around well before Dorothy found one in Oz.
More next time and thank you for visiting again. Recently I have discovered some excellent new blogs and I gradually shall be adding them to the links. Please do explore.
