Rock & Roll



This isn't a photoshop layer effect, but a single 15 seconds long shot which involved me moving positions three times and letting an old hand held flashgun go off each time.

New Camera Test





Just taken delivery of a Sony RX100mkIII and have taken some test shots on what unfortunately was a grey drab overcast day.

Festtive Town Hall



Now that the scaffolding is gone and the tree in front is looking a bit more festive, it was taking this photo of Folkestone town hall last night.

The Local Eye Of Sauron





Went for a wonder on this freezing cold but clear evening and had fun with a local crane (the same one that gave me HAL 9000), I shone a high powered LED torch onto it and was able to get that beam-like effect.

The bottom two photos is of the Memorial arch at night.

HAL 9000 . . .


. . . watches over me while I'm in bed (hears the Daisy Bell song).

This is a bright warning light atop a crane as seen from my bedroom window.

Green Light




Wanted to scratch an itch (and add to my archives) before this Triennial-related feature is turned off soon. This is a mosque at Spring Terrace (close to Tontine Street) lit up by green lighting on a mild but rather damp Saturday evening.

Fiery Sunset



The setting sun did a good job in casting the colour onto low level virga (precipitation dropping from cloud but evaporating before reaching the ground). Kinda made it look like buildings are on fire.

Late Flowering


I don't want to cast nasturtiums on a cyclone-type storm situation that is occurring over Ireland as I type this, but it is all rosy here at Kent as I enjoy Summer's final fling.


 
And then later on in the day, a cold front laden with Sahara dust and smoke from Portuguese forest fires passed over us, which made the late afternoon sun go blood red and cast a sickly yellow hue in the sky.

 

Which was rounded off by this brief reddish sunset.

Night Time At Folkestone








Decided to make good use of the bright Harvest moon on this fine clear evening.

Passing Cop Car



Finally, got a better version of the last attempt to capture a passing "blue and twos".

Night Time




Two more night time shots taken on my GoPro, but one shows the westerly movement of the low cloud and the other picked up a passing cop car.

Newly Opened Viaduct







Had a quick wander on the freshly restored Folkestone railway viaduct where we can now walk along it. I think the convective skyscape added to the photos.

Night Time

 
 


Been trying to catch the flashing lights of a passing emergency services vehicle, but with no luck. Never is a policeman about when you want one.

Update: The second photo is another attempt a week later, and still no luck but have captured passing distant lightning.

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!
