    Cobbles

    Lancaster City centre fascinates me. I keep meaning to go there of an evening at dusk after the rain has wet the cobbled streets. It will have to wait until later in the year now when it gets dark earlier. Click for a sharper image. Comments welcome.

    New macro lens

    BP, yes the same, I had a heck of a job in mounting it. I stripped down an old c-mount lens in the hope that it would fit, of course that would have been too easy, it's all part of the fun I suppose.

    I freely confess, I was scared witless for a few moments.

    Thanks Leon. We nearly lost the venue but thankfully, the owners seem to have breathed new life into it.

    VISAGE VISIONS

    The top crop is a bit heavy for me on the first Fuji. Love the second and unusually for me, I prefer the colour version.

    New macro lens

    Thanks Fuji, I've also got a old microfiche lens which I'll try out over the next few days, I suspect it will be very similar to this lens, I'm going to push it with a few more extension tubes,

    Well thank goodness it wasn’t a group of dairy cows with their calves as they can be prettyq aggressive whilst protecting their offspring . Looks like the high jump has been added to your fitness regime though...

    New macro lens

    Yet another macro lens for my collection, this one is different, its a lens I removed from a old 35mm film scanner. I don't know the focal length or f,number. I managed to jamb it into a C-mount adapter after a trial found it works best when reversed, here is my first stack. I'm very pleased with the result.

    Craster

    Hahahaha - I hadn't noticed that. There used to be a pair of wooden towers on top of this and a series of ropes, buckets. Rock from the nearby quarry (now the main carpark) was moved here and loaded onto ships. All long gone. John the rock was noticeable from a distance, it caught my eye at least, but not huge.

    It does but... I'd like to think I know my way around a camera but the menu system on the Panasonic is a nightmare, or it could just be that I've been spoilt by the ease of the Fuji

    Robber fly? or Dung fly

    Thanks all for the comments. Click, its a wide angle shot (18-200mm at 18mm) and there is a story behind it. I photograph trains and in an attempt to avoid the inevitable crowds (and arguments), I had taken myself off into the countryside near Clitheroe where Google maps showed a bit of a viaduct. I was patiently waiting for the train when I heard a rumbling behind me. I fled and cleared the nearby five bar gate with inches to spare! However, never miss an opportunity...…………. This was taken over the gate. A friend has since told me that all I had to do was to turn around and shoo them away but I have never put that to the test.
