Grabbed this one from the bedroom window the other morning as I was getting ready for work.
Just before Wales were robbed by Fiji in the world cup I spent a lovely week in the land of my Fathers. I did have my proper camera kit with me but occasionally I was just caught off guard and the phone was the only thing to hand. On the first day driving & walking around the Elan valley reservoirs I saw this. The light looked to be changing for the better, the clouds moving in the right direction and worth a proper picture. By the time I’d bobbed back to the car, a couple of minutes away, to grab camera bag, tripod etc. the below had happened!!!
The weather perked up as we carried on round the reservoirs though, a pleasant time was had by all and the occasional photographic opportunity presented itself. The dog does get a bit bored waiting around for me to set up the camera but at least he didn’t pee up my tripod 🙂
How often do you actually get to see fractals so evident in nature? I don’t think I want to eat it just sit and look at it. It’s called a Romanesco Cauliflower in case you are interested.
I had wondered if it was going to hatch over night and leave a acid spitting killing machine behind in the kitchen but there was just the dog as per normal when I came downstairs this morning 🙂
A wee while back my workplace upgraded all its monitors to flat panels. Hurrah for us workers but so sad for all the old CRT monitors which ended up in a kind of ‘Monitor Graveyard’ before the final indignity being put into cages and shipped off somewhere.
An avid photographer, I was always a little peeved when I was not carrying my full kit and occasionally saw things that I might have otherwise photographed. To this ends I bought a Nokia N73 with the plan that since I was never without my phone I would never be without a camera.
The first picture I took when I was testing the camera out is called ‘Beer’. This image is not necessarily representative of a night in at home but mostly because at home I wouldn’t normally drink lager 🙂
