Poppies's Pictures

Remembrance Sunday
Remembrance Sunday (Nikon D5000)

Here at Chester Cathedral are the crosses set in the ground for Remembrance Sunday. Nothing else to say about it really other than on a photography note I used my zoom lens and opened up the aperture to narrow the depth of field. I did take another one with a wide depth of field but it didn't look as good. Some of the pics inside the Cathedral also looked good what with the low sun causing beams to cross the interior. Perhaps on a slow day I shall add some of them, until then you'll just have to imagine and probably imagine them as better than they are.

Victoria Park War Memorial
Victoria Park War Memorial (Pentax Optio 50)

I did try and take a picture of this memorial in Victoria Park two weeks ago but the TYTN II was rubbish. At this time of year and this time of day the sun is behind the memorial making it impossible to take anything but a silhouette of it, the Pentax however allows you to choose the where to take an exposure reading from an then shift the focus. I still reckon that a simple film camera would produce better results.

With my arms and as my Wife reports my face coated in bike oil this Saturday this is the best you're getting I am afraid. The house now smells of citrus degreaser and bike oil from putting the bike back together. There is the usual trail of black oil around the house which as you can imagine gets me no brownie points. With more work to go tomorrow setting the bike up for the morning commute on Monday I'm sure the doghouse is getting nearer.

Going back to the picture, the poppies at the bottom of the memorial are to do with a service that happened last weekend which is connected to the fact that the Air Cadets were in Manchester last weekend but I still don't know what that was for. Any ideas?
