A bit of a disaster today…the resolve to take my 10 photos within 10 metres was slightly thwarted by a storm. So rather than push the theme I though I would record just how low this weather depression is. I have never seen the barograph so low!
Out in the garden with the puppies and 10 photos in the 10 metres.
I quite surprised myself that the most mundane and familiar objects can make nice pictures. You just have to look!
To show the 10 pictures concept, these are the ones that didn’t make it….looking at the time stamps they were all taken in 4 minutes, start to finish.
A gorgeous blue sky sunny day and when in a beautiful garden it’s difficult not to take 10 good photos.
This one wins, anyone any idea what it is called?
Gales and rain made for a lot of opportunities in Sheffield tonight.
This is Tudor Square in Sheffield, home of the Crucible Theatre, famous for its annual hosting of the World Snooker Championships.
The square is home to the largest concentration of theatres in the UK outside London and has thus become known as Sheffield’s ‘Theatre Land’. The Square lies at the heart of the city centre, only metres away from the town hall, major attractions such as the Winter Gardens and is only 5 minutes away from Sheffield railway station.
Tudor Square has always been home to theatres. The Lyceum, Sheffield’s oldest theatre, sits on the east side of the square. On the north side of the square is the Crucible, the venue for the World Snooker Championships since 1977. Also within the square is the smaller Studio Theatre which, along with the two aforementioned theatres, is managed by Sheffield Theatres.
Tudor Square has recently been modernised with funds provided by the European Regional Development Fund. For the project £4 million pounds was allocated to redevelop the square to coincide with the refurbished and redesigned Crucible theatre. The aim of the project was to provide Sheffield Theatres Trust with a open public space for cultural activity and create an impressive new gateway to the city. The newly designed square was opened in 2010. The refurbishment of the Crucible theatre cost £15 million to complete. The aim of this particular project was to improve the night time economy of the city centre, something which the theatre has done so for its entire history. The redevelopment will, amongst other things, provide a much improved venue for the world snooker championships which are held there annually.
Kairen is now convinced that I am in the early stages of senility.
Ten photographs in the garage seemed OK to me, but has her shaking her head.
Whilst there were plenty of photographs taken, somehow drill bits, saws and tyre inflators didn’t do much for me either.
I quite liked this flat pack of caffeine free coke.
Our puppies are growing at an astounding rate.
They are getting more familiar with the camera now but still like to lick the lens!
Early morning sunshine and my balls are frozen…(the silver ones !)
