After the parade has gone

An impromptu image for today’s post. A few weeks ago when the local signalbox was being demolished, my wife and I walked down to see what was going on – it would have been the last day the box was standing and I wanted to get some farewell photos in case I wasn’t able to withness its removal the following day. On the way there I glanced upwards and saw this forlorn strand of bunting hanging from some lights, probably left over from the last local community fun-day which takes place in the summer (but which didn’t happen last year due to Covid, and which similarly won’t take place this year either). I liked the way it looked against the blue sky and high-altitude clouds.

Out near Thorpe Salvin

A bunch of photos that I made on a big looping walk from Thorpe Salvin a few weeks ago. I’ve posted several photos from the same walk in previous posts here, here, here, here & here.

These are all from the second roll of film I started during the walk, some expired Fuji Superia 100. It expired 12 years ago but has been cold-stored and it still looks great. I sometimes overexpose it slightly, but it looks good shot at box speed too, as can be seen in the photos here.

It’s a bit of a random selection of some of the things I passed while walking and I’ll post them as they come, without any commentary.

Nikon F80, Nikkor 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 & Fuji Superia 100 (expired 2008). The last shot was with my Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS HSM lens.

Merry Christmas!

Whatever your beliefs may be, here’s wishing you and your loved ones health and happiness, and I hope you have a good day wherever you may be.

The residents who live across the road from this country phone box seem to decorate it on various occasions (on the times I’ve passed it), and I think it makes a suitably festive image for Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas!
