Crich Tramway Museum

This post contains some more the the pictures I took at the Crich Tramway Museum when we visited recently. They were all taken with a Pentax K5 DSLR and either a Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom or a Tamron 10-24 Super Wide angle zoom. Unfortunately, the day we visited was quite cold and grey, so most of the pictures I took were lit by cloudy skies, but there was still enough light to use reasonably low ISO settings, and even get […]

Glasgow tram in Crich tramway museum

We went to the tram museum in Crich in Derbyshire today where I took this picture of a tram, originally from Glasgow, with a Pentax K5 and Sigma 18-125 HSM Zoom lens. In a future post I will include other pictures I took, including some black & white pictures on HP5 film and some colour slide images on Agfa CT-100 film.

Bourton-on-the-water snapshots

This is a family post with pictures I took on a recent day spent in Bourton-on-the-water in Gloucestershire. View them using the gallery below or see them in full size using this link. Although there was a forecast for some rain about it turned out to be a beautiful summers day with uninterrupted  sunshine from the moment we arrived. Too much sunshine actually – I don’t like the heat much. I’d taken my DSLR kit with me which consists of […]

Evening in Gloucestershire

On a recent trip to Gloucestershire I took out my Pentax K5 fitted with a Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom for an evening walk and took these pictures of the local countryside bathed in late evening sunshine. All these pictures have been imported into Lightroom CC for post processing and then exported at 1600px on the longest edge. To see them at full size follow this link. As well as my K5 I also took along a Pentax SFXn loaded with […]

Black and white pictures around Stevenage

A few months ago I started working from home rather than going into an office every day, so I’ve started having a walk early in the morning to make sure I get some exercise. This morning I took along my Pentax K5 in order to take a few pictures as I walked around. I wasn’t very impressed when I got back and reviewed the pictures. I’ve walked the route so many times that nothing seems new or different so any […]

Favourite pictures – The accordion player

This is one of those pictures which starts out as a colour picture which doesn’t really stand out, but once converted to black & white makes more of an impact. I took this whilst we were on holiday in Durham last year with a Pentax K5 and Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom. We were walking through the town and I saw this man playing and instinctively raised the camera and snapped without any real thought about composition. Later I cropped it […]

High force waterfall

During our holiday in the North East of England we visited the High Force waterfall in Forest-in-teesdale. After parking the car in the gift shop car park and purchasing our tickets, we walked down the graveled path to the waterfall which is about 400 yards or so from the car park. I had taken my Pentax K-5 with me along with a Sigma 18-125mm HSM zoom and Tamron 10-24mm super wide angle zoom. I’d also taken my tripod and a selection […]
