Writing for fun and money

Looking through old photos

Flicking through old photo albums, or clicking on digital images on your PC. Its the same. That moment in time when you pressed the shutter and captured that image.

The Old and the New

As I wander around from place to place (with my trusty camera) I see buildings old and new.  Some still in regular use, and others just waiting, waiting until they are ‘repurposed’

I see a lot of churches, large and small, and I wonder if those who built them ever thought of how long the building would last.

or how these stately homes would adapt and survive

This building below

however has had many uses throughout the years.

Looking back on some old photos

Bedford’s very own Pyramid!

The changing face of the river

Buildings being demolished

New ones being built

Old buildings

get a new purpose

And not a Swan in sight!

 

Walk on By

When out for a walk, I like to look around at all of my surroundings. I try to take the time to look at what is right in front of me.

The unusual shapes

and the colours

of Autumn

I don’t forget to look up

And of course across the lake

or river

Capturing life as it passes by

by day

and by night

 

Halloween

Has arrived, the clocks have gone back, the days are getting shorter.

But still

if you closely at the reflections on the river……..

 

A Sunday Walk

In the Autumn sunshine

And soon it will be time to put up the Christmas lights.

Sunsets and Sunrises Autumn Style

Looking through my catalogue of Autumn photos I have found a few shots of an early morning sunrise.  This is due to the fact that most mornings I am in a rush to get to work and don’t often have my camera to hand.  However a few days ago I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to capture this shot.

Sun over Church Steeple

Within 20 seconds or so the light had completely changed.

I love taking photos of sunsets and clouds

Sunset

Just Clouds

But I really like the setting sun  reflections over water

Sunset over Water

Sunset over Lake
