Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle, as seen from the pavement outside with benches going off into the distance like a moat stopping the tourists trampling on the lawn.

Public Seating

Plastic seats outside a house, near yesterday’s home I think. We went for a walk this evening by the reservoir in Inniscarra and I got some nice shots of my family and of the setting sun over the water. Unfortunately when I got home a number of shots were corrupted. I’m not sure why or […]

My Home from Home

golden-leaves

Golden Leaves

Continuing on the Burnham Beeches theme, here’s another typical autumn shot. A great many more trees had their leaves than here in Blarney where most trees are naked. While in town this evening I discovered to my dismay that my Canon 10-22 lens is broken. The manual focus ring is completely jammed and the zoom […]
