I love to take camera shots at silly angles – often not to everyone’s taste. This weekend I have been at work so a little restricted despite the good weather and have chosen to post a few shots from indoors.
My eldest recently completed her GCSEs this month. My wife had a card and a bunch of flowers for her when she got home that day. Now a few weeks later the flowers are fading – I was about to bin them when I thought to take a few photographs. They are different from my usual.
Greyabbey is a village on the way down the Ards Peninsula. I think I have always driven through without stopping but this time as we had visitors we found the remains of the Abbey. There is a packed graveyard just beside the church car park with the dramatic ruins of the abbey immediately beyond. We wandered around in the sunshine – you can picture much of the ruins as they once were.
This afternoon we drove our American visitors down the Ards Peninsula. Clear blue skies and a gentle breeze all afternoon.
We had a picnic at the car park at Scrabo. This shot was taken during the climb to the summit.
Yesterday I was showing an American family around some of the sights of Belfast. This was taken from the viewing gallery at Victoria centre. It’s hard to straighten the shot so that both the etching on the glass and the actual cranes look straight.
Next stop Titanic museum.
Awoke this morning to stunning sunshine. At this time of year I often sit out in the back garden with the first of (too) many cups of coffee and listen to the birds’ chorus. It’s a good time to chill.
Then I wondered around with my Canon – the colour of this maple’s leaves are stunning when viewed from underneath into the cloudless sky.
Last night my brother hosted a family BBQ for my dad’s 77th birthday! The house is an extended cottage with probably an acre of gardens – these extend above the house with a vegetable patch and a large area allowed to grow wild (with some planting of specific flowers). The result is a beautiful meadow in the early summer sunshine.
