Falkland Colours

It's quite a while since the National Trust got over their aversion to photography inside their properties, but it seems the National Trust for Scotland is still using the same fairly thin (I would say spurious) reasons to keep the cameras out. So when we went to Falkland I amused myself for finding a mini-theme/project while I was there. The theme was Found Colour, and this is what I shot with my Pentax K-3 II and SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens. The weather resistance was useful as it kept raining, and raining....but we Carry On anyway.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...

I just love these and the colours are outstanding.

Sometimes setting yourself a project is a great way to focus your art.
I often do this by only taking one lens with like a 10-20mm, a 35mm or my Lumix 20mm which I love.

Great set of images.
