The famous stairs at Madame Sherry's Forest (October 2018). If you don't know about Madame Sherry, and the scandalous rumors she inspired, it's worth looking up her story.
No cats to share, but here's a favorite photo from a shoot I did with Shayla (October 2017). #FujifilmXT2
Today was rather dark and cloudy, so I experimented a bit with my new camera flash (#Godox TT350).
Here's my first attempt, capturing some brown butterfly (perhaps a small heath / Coenonympha pamphilus). It's somewhat overexposed.
After visiting #Birnbeck 10th Jul 23 during a storm, I decided to return. Weather was brighter, drier, but wind[gale] was strong.
Armed with #NikonF90X - sans battery grip, loaded with #RolleiRetro80S #BnW #film #Nikkor50mm f1.8, #MinoltaVILightMeter & #tripod, I proceeded to shoot a whole roll.🙂
Due to raging Anno-Domino, after a few times kneeling down using the tripod my legs were jelly and I was hit by a branch!🤕
However, I managed to keep going with my #FujifilmXT2 #Fuijnon35mmf2RWR.📷

This is another of the images I took yesterday though after the storm had more or less passed and the clouds parted enough to allow some sunshine through
I went out this afternoon headed for #Birnbeck. I got there, parked up and got my gear - a camera /lens I got last week, so still familiarising with them, a #Grolshupp GCS1810 monopod and #Cullman ball & socket. Spots of rain fell!
Certainly not intended as a #macro lens, I begin to appreciate its long focal length and excellent optical characteristics which produce good results when aimed at tiny creatures. 🐞
