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.

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

and from similar vantage points.

Up River, down 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

The Nights are Drawing In

The leaves on the trees are turning from green to golden Autumn colours.  Misty mornings and evenings.  The shops are already full of sweets (for Halloween?) and if I was to look I am sure I would find xmas cards.

Though I much prefer a walk along the riverbank.

Summer along the Riverbank

Summer has arrived, well a few hot days all in a row. Time I thought for a quick walk along the river.

 

Cross a bridge or two

The new…….

And the old.
