Photo a day - Week 10

11th March 2013
This was an easy week to take & pick photos for, a nice strong selection on nearly every day.
Another false dawn for Spring though, Tuesday was lovely then winter got out of bed again and is still dancing around in the streets outside.

So here's this weeks piccies...

Tuesday, and we start to think Spring is here, flowers are appearing & the sun is out ! Hurrah!

The US flag outside John Muir's birth place house. When the ground floor was the photographer's - Stephany's, I worked there... well... I got given jobs to do for free - I volunteered myself. Was good fun and as a reward, I got to man the upstairs John Muir Birthplace sections, which back then, no-one really cared about, and the rooms were really just old rooms with a few knick knacks. Was told it was haunted too... that didn't help sitting in there on my own !

Been testing out the Fuji to see what it can do with close up & still life work. Used an off-camera flash here , and bounced the light to the bottom with a mirror. The chillies were held up with little bits of wire at the back of them. Just a quick muck-about.
For all the X100 is a great wee camera, close up stuff seems a bit poorer. Will try a few more though.

Yeah, by mid-week winter was back, the steam from the swimming pool showing how cold the outside is...

Used the Fuji for one or two full portraits since I've had it, and pleased with it's performance. Tried a few set-up shots on Saturday.

A trip to Peebles for a wedding recce on Sunday, and a mother's day lunch with the girls. The whole day flitted from bright (but cold) sunshine, to raging snow storms. Scottish weather rulez !!

Was in the bank 1st thing this morning, and as I came out this great sky was above the High Street. Lots of great cloud formations around today.
