A Walk In June – Bonus

A simple title for a simple post. Following on from my previous entry.

I love my close-ups.

My internet was down from Saturday evening till sometime on Monday (I had to go to the office to work and when I got home it was fixed) so I couldn’t make a post on a Sunday as usual. I always work on the blog on Saturday night or Sunday and schedule posts for the week, so this just threw my whole routine out of the window (in addition to ruining my weekend). Anyway, all’s well now.

Enjoy the sunshine and happy summer solstice!

Crosby Beach

I thought it was about time I went to the seaside again.

Crosby is a town in Merseyside, near Liverpool, on the same coast as Southport and Formby, both of which have featured here before. (In fact, it was to Southport I went, and from there I took a train to Crosby.)

This beach also has statues!

It is a work by Antony Gormley called Another Place. The statues are spread out along the beach, as you can see some of them quite far out into the sea.

It would be interesting to watch them get submerged in the water as the tide comes.

Sand dunes.

Seagulls.

Ship!

And sky, of course.

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.
