Posts Tagged ‘Easter’

I’m in a bit of a rush this week being rather pushed for time trying to catch up on loads of work after a weeks holiday on the beautiful island of Malta so forgive my brevity I will try and do a more detailed post with more pictures over the long weekend but for now I wanted to publish this weeks project 52 picture.

I had a choice of two themes this week, the first was fire and the second Easter and if I’m honest I wasn’t overly keen on either of them.

Those of you who know me well will know that I’m the worlds least religous person and despite my love of old churches it’s difficult to get me into one during a service even weddings and funerals make my skin crawl. I have no issue with other peoples religous or non religous views I’d just prefer not to hear about them.

Before I offend my readership further though I’ll talk a little about the picture I chose instead. The shot is of the Rotunda of St Marija Assunta or Dome of the Church of St Mary in Mosta on the island of Malta. It’s a stunning church with it’s own catholic approved miracle having a bomb pierce its dome or rotunda and fall among a congregation of several hundred people failing to detonate or even injure any of them.

The picture itself is not my finest work having been taken through the rather grimy window of a bus moving at speed but I think it still works.

Project 52 Week 15

As I say I will try and publish some more pictures of the trip over the long weekend, next weeks theme is Technology which will no doubt have me posting pictures of either my new to me Canon EOS 650 film camera or brand new out the box but I’ve still not even seen it yet delivered today Android Ice Cream Sandwich equiped HTC One X which the wonderful and beloved Mrs Bunny Chow has on charge waiting for me to get home.

I’m still not sure if abandoning the tried and trusted iOS for Android is the right choice but my geekier side suggests that it will probably suit my own personal needs better, check back for a full report in the coming weeks.

I’ll love and leave you for now with a badly cropped image of the same church

Happy Monday people,

I’m forcing myself to be a little more punctual this week as we’re going to be busy for the rest of the week but wanted to get my post done anyway.

As I mentioned last week I was initially very underwhelmed by the low-light performance of my FUJI HS20EXR but I’ve persisted and managed to come up with a couple more night-time shots for you this week that I’m pleased with.

My other news for this segment is that I have acquired a new toy, it’s an old Canon EOS 650 film camera from the late 80’s, It’s going to be a while before I get to share some shots from it with you as I have yet to acquire any lenses and am loath to do so until I can verify that it’s in reasonable working condition. It was a steal on eBay so if there is anyone local (London) who’d be willing to let me try it out with one of their EF mount lenses I’d be very grateful.

anyway back to this week

The shot I chose to share with the Google plus project crowd was this one of some bent fence posts which I was quite pleased with. It’s even in colour

Camera: FinePix HS20EXR
Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60)
Aperture: f/3.6
Focal Length: 8 mm
ISO Speed: 800

 Below is a selection of some of the other shots from the week that I’m happy with.

The Dark Tower

God know's what sort of car this tacky hubcap fell off but I think it's safe to assume that it wasn't an RS model Ford as it proposes. Still I found it an interesting distraction as it was propped up in a dilapidated flowerbed.

I’m sure that plenty of you will have seen photo’s I’ve taken of this church before, I’m not sure of its exact history but it’s now an apartment block and full of interesting angles as well as some garden space to walk the dog in. 

Next weeks theme is Easter and or Fire, until then I hope you have a great week and don’t break anything while I’m gone
