Places - Bodnant Garden

17 May 2014 11:47PM   Views : 390 Unique : 294

Today we went to see my Mum in Abergele and we took her to Bodnant Garden, a National trust property a short way north of Llanrwst. There was plenty of colour to be had and the sun shone relentlessly all day. Not the best conditions for flower photography, but there are some things that can be done. This wasn't a purely photographic trip so I had the Pentax MX-1 and Sue had the Olympus XZ-1. These are excellent for close ups especially, but the quality holds very well throughout the range. Things have come a long way since the early days of digital photography!

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...
