Photo: An English Summer Day
No! Really! This was July 6th, 2005!

On all of my trips to England, never have I gone totally without rain. No surprise there, eh? Interestingly, if you look up statistics, there is more rain on average in June and July than there is in April and May. Be that as it may, this view across the lake/moat at Leeds Castle has plenty going for it in the greenery and blooming flowers.

What's not going for the photo, much, is the crummy camera I had at the time. The exposure was dark, grainy and full of chroma noise . . . but between Photoshop and a lot of head banging on filters, this is what we have. It can't be considered a portfolio piece, but it is a fond reminder of a nice time.

A place to contemplate.

Pardon the watermark- this was started waaayyyyy back when, with the intent of having a poster printed for my office at work. I didn't feel like starting from scratch, so I left things 'as is.'

The original photo was taken in July of 2005.

Photo: Canterbury Cathedral
July 2005

The size of Canterbury Cathedral is small compared to either Westminster Abbey or St. Paul's. Larger, if I remember correctly, than Salisbury Cathedral. Each has its own distinctive features that make a visit worthwhile. I would like to spend a month or more touring all the cathedrals of England.

The camera I used to take this photo was cheap and poor quality- jpeg only. So after the fact (and many times since 2005) you do what you can to rescue a picture that could have been better. Of all the renditions of this shot, I think I like this best. I have learned a few tricks in Photoshop and Lightroom that help.

Photo: 7/7 Remnants
Nine years ago.

I was in London on 7/7. In memory of those who died and with thanks to those who served the public in the aftermath. I am kindred with the people of London on this date each year. Also a kind word of thanks to all the Londoners who went the extra distance for tourists like me during the days after.

This is the front page of a newspaper that I purchased just before leaving London two days after the 7/7 attacks.
