Bassett Hounds

 This pack of Bassett hounds enjoyed the attentions of people especially children at the Gransden Show.  Bassets are scent hounds that were originally bred for the purpose of hunting rabbits and hare.

Sawfly Larvae in the Roses

Trying to get on top of the gardening backlog, I got distracted by these Sawfly larvae in the roses and spent a while with the 100mm macro. The blue in the background is El and Matt's now ex-car as they have exchanged it for a dark grey car - not sure how it will work as photographic prop.

Infrared Images of Richmond Park

 Images taken with my infrared camera and 50 mm lens plus a fisheye adapter in some images. The latter allows close focus as in the toadstool image. The blurring at the edges is due to the fact that I am holding the adapter against the 50mm lens and sometimes not quite straight etc. I like the effect with the closer tree images.

Ham House in Monochrome

A few views at Ham House converted to monochrome rather than retaining some of the colour. The images including trees are my favourites and there are a wide variety in the grounds.

Ham House

With rain threatened for the rest of the day, I decided a visit to a National Trust property was the best idea yesterday and Ham House was the nearest to my evening lecture destination. It is a Jacobean house(1610 onwards) with a lot of the original furniture (more of this later) and the grounds are very impressive with both original 17th Century gardens and some later statues and landscaping. A place well suited to the use of the infrared camera. Thanks to Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society for a warm welcome in the evening.

Grand Central Railway Leicestershire

 On Saturday we spent a very enjoyable day as guests of David and Francoise (first image)  travelling on the Grand Central Railway starting at Loughborough. It was their Wedding Anniversary celebration with everything done in the 1930's style - costumes, dancing, drinks, cake, dinner and Murder Mystery event.
