Life through the Lens (7 February 2021)

As my previous series came to an end, I had the idea to post some of my own photographs.

When my eyes were better, I used to enjoy photography. I had some decent kit and was around just as digital photography was taking off. Although it was strictly a hobby for me, two of my photos were published. One rural shot of hay bales ended up in a brochure made by the UK’s NFU (farming), another ended up in a coffee-table book about lighthouses. I wasn’t David Bailey but a couple of times, I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time.

I thought I’d share some. All these photographs were taken by me, I own the copyright so if you’d like to use any, go for it. Just so long as you don’t use them to make any money.

My aim is to publish weekly again but this time, on Sunday afternoons. I’m just going to repeat this spiel each week, too, for the benefit of new readers, so you can safely skip to the camera graphic to save reading the blurb each time.

If you look at the category above (high on left, by the date), I’ll put every photo in that same category so you can find previously-published photos. If I feel a photo needs some explanation, I’ll maybe write a line or two to go with it. Like the last time, I’ll keep going until I run out of steam. Oh, and feel free to join in, if the fancy takes you.

I’ve linked to a higher-res umage under each photo.

How about this for a house?

We saw this place when we holidayed down in Brittany. It is right down on the sea shore and is quite well-known, called Castel Meur.

  1. I see pics like this and think circumstances different, I might pull up stakes (not many anyway) and see if the British Isles would have me. You work well for the Tourism Council.

      1. Only time I spent in France I was unimpressed with the cold demeanor of the people I met. If you (I suspect ulterior motives) are discouraging further consideration of a move to the British Isles, I’ll go back to thoughts to expat to Italy – the northwest coastal areas. Thanks for the lovely Sunday morning chat. Do well, good sir.

        1. It’s just that it is 28F here today, down in Monaco, I think it said 56F. I mean, can’t complain, middle of winter, but it sounds a bit more pleasant there. Hang on…Rome is the same as Monaco – the wonders of Google!
