Summer in the Time of COVID-19

Hello hi, it’s been a while. What can you photography-blog about these days?

It’s still got to be pictures from my local park, as that the only place I go to. That and Tesco supermarket.

Okay, the last one isn’t from the park but who cares.

I’ve not been outside my area for over 3 months. I don’t think I’ve ever gone this long without using public transport in my life. I kinda like setting this record for myself. I will continue working from home for now so it’ll only be getting longer. I’m used to this new order, I don’t miss the old life much. The only thing is, my photography suffers. I don’t remember when I last took up my camera.

This blog might just turn into a rambling blog. Which, as I said to someone on Twitter recently, is really the best kind. *shrug

Useless Bench

The title of this post almost sounds like something else, but I assure you, it literally is a bench. As in that thing that you can sit on, usually in parks.

Except when you can’t.

This looks like one of those images that just screams: “YOU HAD ONE JOB!”

Bonus:

It’s not very comfortable, is it?

Realms of Blue

That one time I took pictures in Heaton Park on Boxing Day and they came out blue.

Yes, it’s the same day as the photo in this post.

It was something new for me, as I don’t go to Heaton Park in winter and I definitely don’t go anywhere during Christmas time. I was glorious!

Do you ever get pleasure from experiencing something so tiny or so trivial for the first time?

More Ducks!

Because you can’t ever have too many duck pictures on your blog.

These images show a mother duck with her four ducklings, following her into the water. This is the same Heaton Park pond that featured in my previous duck post.

I can’t believe how lucky I was, having had an opportunity to take these photos. And it just proves that no matter how many times I go to Heaton Park, there is always something new to discover!
