Money | Photography
Most people can find something to photograph close by these days and it’s inexpensive with a digital camera. Then you can share your photographs using Windows Live, Photobucket or Facebook. We started at this lake and it’s relaxing walking around and sometimes we talk to people. It’s less than two miles away and I am quite often happy to just go there but we took some pictures and I shot some video clips and we moved on. Yes, I’m making a video!
The Manor House
The Manor house is quite close by, perhaps 800 yards away!
You probably don’t have a 13th Century Manor House in your backyard but there is always something. I photographed a butterfly in the garden today! It is run as a museum and is free to walk around.
It even has a moat! We have photographed that before, but we got much better pictures this time and then went on to a nature reserve and farm! It was a few miles away, amazing what we have even in a urban environment like this.
Its free to walk around the farm and look at the cows and chickens and you can buy a few things from the farm shop. I decided to go nuts and buy a can of Coke!
You can find things to photograph close by, you just have to look. We went to the ruins of a priory later and I took pictures here of the cows and chickens. On the way back we went to another small pool and walked across a heath where we looked at the rocks and geology of the heath. We found shale that is from a volcano millions of years ago!
I hope you have enjoyed this blog and you might like to read another. My last ramble of July was interesting! There is also Money | DIY and the thrifty and frugal blogs have been popular. There are lots more to choose from on the Home Page.
