As we didn’t have snow as promised today, we took a walk, in the freezing north wind, over the marsh to Camber castle. Why wouldn’t we? Bbrrrrrrrrrrh!
I love the excuse this challenge gives, when time permits, to trawl through the archives, find images that have gone unnoticed and others that I have an excuse to repost. Check out other entries to the challenge here.
Well… This week… Grey and gloomy. So much rain.
But, that’s just my interpretation. Take a look at some others here
Serene – A seaside town in winter – maybe because it’s so wet and cold!
Maybe others have a different interpretation of ‘Serenity’
During these grey days, I’m struggling with inspiration for new photos. However, today was extraordinarily windy so, with a promise of sunshine at high tide, I forced the dog (myself) out the door and headed for the beach to capture shadows (h-hum) of waves and clouds for this weeks challenge.
As we got out of the car at the station, to take the train for the Natural History Museum, I dropped my camera. I shan’t repeat the expletives here but suffice to say, I was very cross. On inspection, it landed on the lens and at first I thought that just the UV filter had smashed… but no. By the time I’d prised off the bent filter ring, I realised that the lens wasn’t zooming or focussing. How does this link to new? Well, I now need a new lens. The 18-55mm kit lens was great but really I want a 18-105mm so I’m not changing them as often. And, if I’m going to splash out on that…… Well, isn’t it also time I replaced my Nikon D5000 body?
Looking at these images that I then took on the broken lens, it looks as if I also need new eyes because my manual focusing seems to be rather off.
