Trip to Durham

Yesterday I went to see my son Daniel at Durham where he is at University and I took the opportunity to do some homework on the way.   Yes it is never too late to learn new skills and I am presently just over half way through a night school course on Basic Digital Photography.

I have always been pleased with my photographs and just wanted to get the hang of the technical stuff on my camera.  Well I am loving the course and I am now seeing the world through a different lens (pardon the pun)    The course home work was a photo journal  and to incorporate  the skills we have learnt.    Well below are some of my photos from the journey…   (I hope you like them)

Love this in black and white,  the movement of the person rushing “Your life hangs by a thread…”

    A great way to practise newly acquired skills but also a good way to record memories of a day with your son.
