Leeds Dock

A quick post today, but beefed up with three photographs rather than the usual one. All three were taken at Leeds Dock beside the Royal Armouries museum (after I left the museum).

Doggie by a window

I have a camera review planned for the blog sometime soon, I’d hoped to have written it before now but – even though I’m off work this week – I’ve not gotten around to it yet. The thing with having a week off is that I have a lot of stuff I’ve planned to do while I have the chance. Probably too much stuff.

While some of it I’ve achieved (including cleaning and shooting the camera I plan to review) , others – including some mundane, but desireable things like just watching some movies and reading some of my big pile of photobooks – have yet to be done. And I really want to do some of those mundane but relaxing things before work comes beckoning again. I might get chance to write the review tomorrow. Or I might not.

In the meantime, there might be a series of short posts while I figure out what I’m doing with my time. So, today, here’s a picture of a dog outside a cafe…

I see you

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.
