Photo fun

I own a lot of cameras. There is one on my cell phone (which as it is made by Samsung is a pretty good camera), there is my Samsung compact and there is my Sony DSLR.

It's not just making my cat's eyes greener and glow brighter; there is making a good photo better and more compelling.

I had a lot of great photography tips today from a chap I met whilst buying a photography magazine in WHSmiths. Hints and tips on what to buy, how to compose photos and apps for my phone. One of the better monthly shop experiences.

Our exotic friends are back hanging around the garden. Being that it is heading towards Spring I'm hoping they are thinking about starting a family!

Lunch in the park

London is full of fantastic green spaces; lungs breathing amongst the buildings and traffic of the City. The parks range in size from huge open spaces under the auspices of the Royal Parks; to smaller local areas; wild open heaths; gardens in the middle of squares and all the gardens attached to houses.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich, where I live, is full of green open spaces.

On Friday I was changing buses at Blackheath Royal Standard, I stopped (briefly as it was very cold), for lunch in the park - this is being the tiny square of grass in the middle of the roudabout that is the Standard, Batley Park.

I was going to sit and read my Kindle for a bit (memories of lunch in Central Park) but the wind-chill was biting, so I shared some crumbs with the pigeon gang and went home.
