Colourful Building



This cheerful looking building just around the corner from my house was completed this week, and today the bright mid-summer sunshine and blue skies helped to pop out the colours.

ISS



Taken on the Go Pro from the relative safety of my famed west-facing hobby room. The Go Pro could only do 30 seconds max exposure but picked out the light trail easily.

Walkabout






Went for a little walkabout at the Harbour Arm with an old school friend.

Captain Jack Sparrow











I captured a impressionist called Ash White in action as the famed Pirates of the Caribbean character at a hot and sunny Folkestone harbour today. I even got a boat to get up and close to him!

Propping The Sun Up.



Spotted this large transport crane close to my house today. While I only had the smartphone camera to hand, I tried to get arty farty with the photo anyway.

A Fine June's Day.






Went on a rare bike ride on what was a fine and warm June's day and naturally the trusty Nikon D40 tagged along.

Best Of Folkestone




Or almost as the building in the top photo is still under construction (an old arcade place being rebuilt into as a conference place).

Both were taken hand held on a Go Pro then tweaked on the PC.

Harbour Area








Went for a quiet but chilly stroll at around Folkestone harbour today, where parts of it are still under construction as part of the regeneration plan.

Bedtime Story For Jet.



"It was a dark and stormy night, the door slowly creaked open and a panting sound could be heard . . . and then suddenly there was a loud "WOOF! . . . ".

Class 03

 
 


Just received this BR class 03 shunter in the post, so thought I'd take a quick shot of it.

EDIT: Now with horn added and a driver.

Night Time



Actually, my ol' street does look rather cool at night time. That bright looking dot is Venus.

Jet



Coming up to 3 years old, this dude is turning out to be a well behaved indoors-only puss. Occasionally he does like to let me know who is the boss, but he is a good boy, really.

Moody Selfie



Yesterday evening, I had everything all set up to take a still life photo of fruits using my two flash guns - only to find one flash gun wasn't working. The batteries inside not only ran out but leaked, so after I took that flash gun apart and cleaned out all the gun and got it working again, I then had to change the battery on the remote sender.
  It was a bit of a faff, and by the time I got everything working again, it had gone past midnight so I packed everything up (it took so long that the fruits in question went mouldy!). However, I did manage to take this last minute quick test photo using the trusty Nikon D40.

So let this be a lesson to myself, never leave AA-type alkaline batteries inside devices for too long.

Murkiness At Folkestone

 
 


A real pea souper this evening as we go through a chilly spell. The mist then retreated out to the nearby sea (as I live at a coastal town) the following day, which made things look rather hazy and lazy for a time.
