Relaxing weekend

After all the excitement of the exhibition, we thought we needed a nice relaxing weekend in our favourite town of Arundel. I think our children think we have shares in the tourist industry there as we spend quite a lot of our free time there.

I've been trying to get to grips my new Nikon D5000 for a while now, so thought I'd use the w/e to take a few shots. I've been using an old 80-200mm lense which is great quality but I can only use it on manual focus, so that's a bit of a challenge.





Someone had a sense of humour



A lovely summer evening



Some in-camera editing



Best foot forward



My ideal place to live, watching the river traffic while you dine



And of course a bit of texture.



And while sitting here I took my best shot of the day



Lastly a bit of the creative stuff...... "the mind rolls in in ever widening circles in order to progress through the jungle of creative paths, in an attempt to find the one that fits us best."

All your photos are so sharp and crisp Sharon. You are certainly making the most of your new camera and getting to know it very well. I love all the images but the carving and the riverside houses are my favourites, and the lichen, and...........!

Beautiful photos Sharon, well done. You have put so much effort into your exercises. It is interesting to follow your process and see the progression.
