The weekend draws to a close…

… and it’s a shame that when the Autumn light is looking good, I’ve come down with some kind of minor lurgy; not man-flu but enough to make me do rather little this weekend.  My partner did advise me to wrap up and go out if the sun came out though, so I did as she instructed this afternoon and went out for an hour around our local park – a few images below.  It wasn’t the most marvellous of golden lights, but it was nice to get out for a bit and I enjoyed trying to get a few images along the way.

So it’s back to business as usual tomorrow, with the walk to the tube on the way to work – pictures of that below too.  Actually the walk to the tube is an interesting 20-25 minute stroll through side streets to Brixton (where all three pictures were taken), which has ‘come up in the world’ in a way that probably appeals very much to the increasingly wealthy south London middle class, but perhaps rather less to the Brixton locals who are being priced out of their homes and shops as the whole place becomes gentrified.  There’s a lot of interesting graffiti currently as local shop owners in the railway arches protest about being evicted from their units by the landlord (Network Rail) – more information for those interested here: savebrixtonarches.com.

Ridiculously quiet – it’s not normally like this in the morning!  That’s Fridays for you….

I’m feeling guilty about the delays between posts on this blog so I must do better!  One help might be that I’ve re-started using my little Leica D Lux again (clone of the Panasonic LX100) which is small enough to stash in the corner of my work bag but good enough to take images of surprisingly high quality.  I’ve been swayed by Fuji JPEGs recently, but the D Lux is so much smaller and the image quality very good if you’re prepared to process from raw (the JPEGs lose too much detail even if the noise reduction is turned down all the way).  I’m enjoying using it, so there may be more blog posts to come in the near future.

Have a good week….

South East London-based, I work for the National Health Service but try and fit in some photography on a regular basis - often on dog walks with Harry my patient Lab-Retriever! Harry and his three cat companions provide some photographic material when the going gets really tough (it's the internet - gotta have a cat photo) but the almost-grown kids stay as far away from the lens as possible!
