black and white

I spent an incredibly blowy afternoon walking amongst the boats at Thorpe Bay this afternoon. I had hoped to be able to get some nice long exposures with great reflections in the water, but that wasn’t to be with the gale blowing in from the sea.

Still, I was able to get a few decent shots, and still have a few others that I can work on later.

I took a walk down to the Thames Barrier with my camera the other week and took this long exposure shot of Number 8, which is the second nearest barrier to the South shore. Featured is the black and white version but you can also see a colour version below.

I had a couple of pictures I wanted to go out and get last weekend of the lighthouse over at Dovercourt. It’s an hours drive away so I was not overly pleased to find the lighthouse surrounded in scaffolding…still, I’d got out and I have photoshop…so I got to it

Long exposure of this building in London – came out just as I wanted it to (after some work in photoshop of course) – the lens was the Samyang 24mm TS.

Badger really did not want to engage with the photographer today!


We drove out to Broxbourne Woods today for a walk. We hadn’t been for a few years so it was nice to see again. The Infra-Red camera got another outing…not as successful as previously, mainly because there wasn’t much new green life yet, but I still enjoyed this selection of shots…

We visited Rainham Hall today which is a different type of national Trust property in that, because it has had over 50 different occupants with no one family using for any length of time, it doesn’t have a consistent history, so it has been used as a family home, a photographers studio and a Day Nursery, amongst other things.

The current display which opened yesterday is about its time as a Day Nursery during and after the second world war. It was very interesting and nice to come across that sort of institution where all the children appear to have been well looked after and were very happy whilst there.

If you want to see a rather more standard shot of the Hall…

Today’s trip out was our regular visit to Aldeburgh for fish and chips, and then a visit to Snape for a look at the River Alde there.

I have taken The Scallop before but went bananas on the processing today…too much? I like it so it stays 😉

More photos after the break…

We had cabbage with our tea tonight (Shepherd’s Pie if you’re interested). The left over leaves immediately caught my eye for a quick macro black and white abstract sort of shot..nand I made 3 of the shots into a triptych…
