It’s been a while since I’ve updated this. I went to London Zoo again and took some great photos last week. There’s not too much else to tell. I’ve just got back from Alton Towers which was fun. The above shot was taken there (with Instagram) on my phone. It’s a pretty decent photo. Say what you will about iPhone filter photography. It makes a great photo.
Another week goes by.
A little while ago I mentioned I’d bought a new lens – it’s the new Nikkor 18 – 300mm DX. It’s heavy, but it doesn’t half offer a performance boost over my kit lens. It also holds the advantage of not having to switch lenses any more because of its length. I dropped into the garden to take these two – this is going to be fun. High resolution versions here.
Last weekend I went to the WWT (The London Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre) for a day of (cold) photography. I’ve added some of the photos to my 2012 showcase (look at the fluffy baby geese!), but a full set is available on Flickr here. I also met Iron Man on the Tube on the way home.
Hurray! I made it to the zoo and yes, the photography came out OK. The Frog vs. Snake one at the top is one of my all time favourites, along with the monkey family. Anyway, it was another weekend of films, beating last week by one. I ended up watching six in a weekend:
- The Sitter (Cinema)
- The Red Balloon
- Total Recall
- Bad Lieutenant (2009’s)
- The Big Lebowski
