    “Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask ‘how’, while others of a more curious nature will ask ‘why’. Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.”
    Martin Parr

    Parr’s documentary photography captures the humour of every day British life. He is aptly described as a ‘chronicler of our age’.

  2. Early outing today. Discovered that not all the wetlands have dried out. Here are some wading birds enjoying an early repast.

    At long last, the right conditions to do justice to a monochrome landscape, and about time to.

    I really must tidy my desk instead of relying on the closed lid to keep it looking reasonable!

    A Northern White-cedar, Thuja occidentalis, that has seen its better days. Also known in commercial nurseries as Arborvitae. We removed a bunch of these around our house because they were significantly damaged. When dried, they also turn a bonfire into an inferno!

    A set of student carrels with a painting of a long-ago-passed-away colleague of mine, Professor Shillington. He taught organic chemistry for over 35 years and was a either a mentor for or a terror to many future physicians.

    A beautiful morning so went for a walk round a small local wood where contractors have been thinning out to allow new growth.

    For lunch a few of us went to a local Vietnamese restaurant today. I grabbed this random image of the lunch crowd.

    I have to go back to this spot with a different lens (and hence, camera) - this is unreal, a whole copse of impossibly bent birch trees in front of the more common coniferous forest. Due to the road being right behind my back, I was unable to catch more of this today, but this is definitely worth some more shots (in the morning, too, to get some better light - today it was overcast, and backlit as well).

    Day Twenty Five - the wrong cook in the kitchen

    I saw this Dalmatian, with its head stuck in the floor of a shop window display, while on my way home tonight after work. I suspect he has many clones across the world.

    Taking a cue from @donlaw@donlaw - one of my co-workers asked for a quick portrait for the slides she is presenting to middle management next week. I'm not the portrait guy I told her, but there was a good North facing window, and I brought my EF-500 with a cable and a mini softbox. Best out of seven.

    Nice, I found most of my coworkers are willing 'victims' I mean subjects...
    They all know me as the one who carries a camera around most the time.
