Keep Tidy

Keep Tidy
Outside Canterbury there is an old abandoned storage place and this is the inside of one of the containers left there. The signs on the walls seem to be working as this was one of the tidiest abandoned containers I have ever seen, tho I have not seen that many to be fair.

Osteospermum

Osteospermum
This has to be one of my favourite flowers as they are so photogenic. My parents were house-sitting recently and the garden was full of things like this – a photographer’s dream. Shame it was so windy.

Wasp

Wasp
The common wasp, Vespula vulgaris, is a wasp found in much of the Northern Hemisphere, and introduced to Australia and New Zealand. Taking photos of insects sure has cured any fear I may have once had of them. I say ‘may’ have had because I am well hard and would never have really been scared of a wasp. Yea right.

More Barn Owl

More Barn Owl
Still one of my faves… really nice to see it flying whilst carrying a chicken leg 🙂

Deckchair Hire

The beach wasn’t all that popular on the day we were in Great Yarmouth.

More Honey Bee

More Honey Bee
These are probably on the endangered species list now 🙂

Clouded Leopard

Clouded Leopard
Clouded leopards are hunters of small mammals and birds in forests of parts of Asia. Short legs and long tails indicate a life lived in trees. It was quite amazing to be able to get this close.

Exit

Um, some odd graffiti.

Twins

Oh to be a botanist – I might know what there are called without Google. Osteospermum apparently.

Planet Mote Park

Planet Mote Park
It has been a while since I ventured to this part of Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent, but I just got hold of a Nodal Ninja NN3 MkII and knew I had to go back here. As with most buildings like this, it has now been boarded up as it was used by junkies. The previous planet shot was done with a standard tripod head, but I can see the merits of a proper panoramic head already. The Nodal Ninja is a nice piece of kit – fairly simple to set up and use and makes the whole process a lot simpler. More experimentation will be coming up soon. For those that are interested, this was a sequence of 24 images stitched using Autopano.
