sunsets

Its been quite a warm and hazy day today which usually bodes well for a corker of a sunset.

I sat on the front porch for a bit as the sun made its way down and lit up the sky

I popped out to get a few beers and a couple of bottles of wine just before the sun went all the way down, then headed a couple of minutes down the road to where all the big posh houses sit high on the dunes overlooking the ocean.

The sunset was lovely and mellow – there’s no wind today and it was so peaceful on the beach. A school (or is is pod?) of dolphins were swimming lazing circles in the bay and a few people were swimming in the last light. Perfect.

The best thing about really still and quiet evenings is I can hear the ocean from my bed as I fall asleep.

picture taking

so, after yesterday’s post – I have finally finished a 24 shot roll in the Trip 35. I’ll send it and the upteen rolls of 120 film off to be developed on Monday – hell, I might even take them in in person.

Was a busy work day – the car was playing up as the garage somehow stuffed up tightening the new alternator belt – they sorted that quickly whilst I waited, not that they had much choice, I just handed them the keys and plonked myself in the reception with my laptop (had to do some urgent work).

Jay went out getting lots of craft stuff for the kids today, so they had a making stuff afternoon which they really enjoyed – so did I, glad not to have the noise of the Wii in the background whilst I’m trying to work!! .

Took some shots at the beach this afternoon too – I havent done that in ages, so its nice to get some more photos. There’s a really annoying purple fringed spot on my shots with the Nikkor 50mm though – have no idea why, it only seems to be there at f16 and over.

So thats today, I have red wine and I’m going to chill – photos to follow
