Mysteries For Summer

A quick and lazy still life today, featuring the new collection of short stories by Agatha Christie. To complement previously released Midwinter Mysteries, the stories in this collection all centre on summer.

To emphasise, the stories are not new, they’ve all been released before as part of different collections.

It would have been better had the book been released on actual midsummer, but it wasn’t so. A missed chance, I say.

And More Daisies

It’s still flowers at Some Photoblog!

I saw these pink daisies (I don’t actually know if that’s what they’re called) in one particular place in Castlefield, a little lane by the canal. This is the first time I’ve gone through there so the first time I’ve seen them.

I’m adding these big ones too, they also grow in Castlefield.

I cannot stop photographing flowers.

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

Formby

In my last blog entry I shared the photos from my trip to Southport, but that wasn’t the whole trip. That same day, I also visited Formby, a town on the coast near Liverpool. Formby is known for its sand dunes, pinewoods and wildlife–apparently it’s a habitat of the endangered red squirrel, though I haven’t seen any (truth be told, I didn’t have much time, I literally ran from the train station to the beach, took pics and ran back, as it was quite late and I wanted to return to Manchester at reasonable hour).

Anyway, Formby is absolutely gorgeous, see for yourselves:

The pinewoods are conserved by National Trust, for the above mentioned wildlife.
