Tourists outside Windsor Castle

Tourists outside Windsor Castle

Tourists gathered outside the gates of Windsor Castle photograph each other smiling and posing for holiday photos. We parked outside the town, grabbed a bus up the road and walked around a bit. Unfortunately the castle itself was closed.

The town of Windsor is definitely worth a visit. It’s a huge tourist attraction though so better to visit during the week when the place is thronged with visitors.

Caution! Unprotected High Cliffs

Caution! Unprotected High Cliffs

A sign at the base of the short hill below the white pillar near Bantry in Co Cork warns of high cliffs. Unfortunately Adam was asleep in the car and I couldn’t venture any further so I’ll have to return some day to take photos of that pillar.

A Cabin in the Rockies

A Cabin in the Rockies

A small wooden cabin or hut sits in a car park near the houses Automattic stayed in at Breckenridge in Colorado. The original shot can be seen in my Flickr stream or in the Automattic group there. This version has been extensively dodged and burned to bring out the contrast between light and dark.

Late posting of today’s photo because of the camera club tonight. It was model shoot night and I got a few shots but I’m not very comfortable directing so I’m undecided as to how well the photos came out.

Customer Parking Only

Customer Parking Only

The Organic Shop in Douglas Cork obviously has problems with non-customers parking in front of the shop. Why else would they put a wheel clamp on prominent display next to their warning sign? Lucky for us we were buying something ..
