A wee jaunt to Barcelona last week right before Catalonia decides it’s going to declare independence from Spain. There’s a fairly heavy police presence around one of the squares but mainly it’s just tourists and locals going about their daily business. First stop is the Sagrada Familia. They started building it in 1882 with Gaudi taking over as chief architect the following year and dedicating … Continue reading Burtonesque Barcelona
Sunday past I decided to drag the tripod out for a wee shot that’s been in my mind for months, maybe years. Left the house under steel grey skies only to get to the bottom of a fair climb under scorching summer conditions! Scottish summer that is. Not shorts weather but not wrapped up for a trek to the polar south either. Despite the warmth … Continue reading Attack Of The Coos!

It looks like the greatest sport ever. It’s colourful, it’s got hot … Continue reading Dundee Pigskin

A … Continue reading New Shopping Experience

Not the lens I had in mind for this project but couldn’t find the correct screwdrivers to dismantle the one I bought for it. Basically it’s a macro lens that I can tilt and shift a bit. Consider this a … Continue reading Through the Rokkor Eye
A quick wee walk around the local woodland to fire off some shots. Not what I had in mind for this weekend but leaving vital supplies in work chucked a spanner in the planned efforts. First images I’ve edited on a Mac my old Windows set up is more than likely over. I can now import direct to Flickr again without having to drag and … Continue reading Black Woods
An away day with the Pansies taking the short trip from the Theatre of Dreams Glenesk Park to take on neighbours Lochee Harp who are playing their home matches in Dundee’s very own La Bombonera Downfield Park while the new Beechwood Park is being built. Only goal difference separates the two sides going into this fixture but Violet have been in good form away from … Continue reading Away Days
