It seems to be taking a lifetime to discover all the quirks and clever combinations of settings in this new camera.
As I foreshadowed a few days ago, the thrust of my images for a little while is simply learning how to make the camera do what I want it to. I began yesterday at my favourite pile of scrap metal where there was a large pile of rusting railway wheels. I speculate that they are from the bogies of the recently dismantled electric units.
From there, it is a short hop to the Seaview Marina where I took a low angle view along one of the fingers with a dark sky as background.
I had to collect something from the hospice for Mary and while I was there I enjoyed the splendour of the volunteer-maintained gardens. I was tempted to use my tools to eliminate the apparent flaw just to the left of bottom centre on this flower. Close inspection revealed that the “flaw” had legs, red wings, and feelers. I am guessing that the flower is some kind of lily.
Near the administration block, it is clear that someone has a good old-fashioned taste in flower layout.
That’s all for today.
