Wot? No pictures?

As I type this Flickr is still undergoing its site maintenance involving the moving of everyone’s accounts, pictures etc. (billions of photos and videos, and over 100 million accounts!) across to a new hosting platform. I think it was scheduled to take 12 hours, but like many IT projects, is taking a little while longer than originally planned. As such I can’t get at my photos to add them in the normal way so, instead, here’s one I’ve uploaded directly.

Note: This isn’t meant to be a metaphor for Flickr’s account migration project. 🙂FIM - Planet Circus

A lovely day at the seaside

“Bracing”, that’s the word we use to describe those seaside walks in bitterly cold wind.

This day however was far from bracing – it was taken back in February during an unseasonably warm period.  Good old climate change, eh? At least we’ll get some nice warm days at the seaside in the middle of the winter before the sea swamps the place altogether so we can never visit it again.

On a foggy day last year

One from last autumn on a wonderfully foggy day. It was taken from the car park at the top of Porter Clough on the outskirts of Sheffield. I took a digital version of the same scene, but also grabbed this shot with the Sure Shot that I had with me as well.

I took a trip out to Curbar Edge in the Peak District on Sunday with the hopes of photographing people climbing the rocks. This is one of the photos I took while walking up to the main crags. You can just make out a few people perched atop and beside the rocks if you look closely.

I went for a walk last weekend to test the Z135 (which I posted about a couple of days back). I wandered through a part of the city that I’ve never really explored on a loop out and back from the town centre. It was mostly residential streets and I took photos of a few houses that I passed that I felt had an interesting look to them. Here’s one of them.
