How I could sit and watch these beautiful beasts at Port Lympne Wildlife Park for hours. So much so that I’ve bought myself a years membership to this park that is just about 45mins drive from here. I hope the apes are more cooperative the next time I go 🙂
When there are lots of things pressing on your time, and the weather may have been awful and you haven’t been wandering, or the son has been home for 3 weeks demanding your attention, or…, or…, or…, producing a photo for this 366 challenge can become very consuming some days. I shall try my very best to finish the year but, would I do it again? I’m not so sure because other things I may have liked to be doing have suffered because of it – one of which is spending more time blogging other photos I may have taken.
Anyway, here’s last weeks batch:
It seems like ages since I was last on the fishing beach at Hastings. So, today I took a walk with a 50mm prime lens to see what fishing boat paraphernalia I could find. Hope you like them.
When the weather’s good, it is very, very good – as it was last Tuesday evening for the Camera Club amble out to Rye Harbour at low tide.
116 years in the planning, Clifton Suspension Bridge which links Bristol to North Somerset, traversing the gorge of the River Avon 75m above the high tide mark, was eventually completed in 1864.
Sometimes my better half excels himself and so it was the case a few weekends ago when he packed us in the car and off we went towards West Sussex. Through a forest of ancient Yew trees at Kingley Vale to the top of the downs, we climbed before breakfast. On to Emsworth for a wander before heading to Dell Quay where we had a lovely early dinner in the Crown and Anchor – if you’re ever in that area it serves THE BEST dressed crab. And finally, for the finale, to Bosham, my favourite village on the South Coast, for sunset
What a week it’s been. #2 son is home for a couple of weeks and after years of failing to drag us along to the huge festival at Glastonbury, we conceded to the much smaller, more local Love Supreme festival (link to more photos) that focuses on jazz and soul music. Despite spending 3 nights in a tiny hiking tent, we were truly spoiled and came home aurally satiated.
Thankfully, there was a lounge area supplying wifi so the first 3 photos were edited in mobile Lightroom on the ipad. Although it doesn’t have all the functions, I have to say I was impressed. But as for the slightly soft focus…. well, that’s my fault.
WHAT a weekend. Non-stop jazz, soul and funk amidst the rolling Sussex Downs at Glynde.
