Seems apt that I am only just posting photos from last year’s reading party considering that this year’s takes place 3 weeks from now.
Again with the trees/foliage because, well, TREES.
Then some lesser-spotted computer scientists amongst the trees.
It seems that age can’t hamper the gleeful happiness of playing in running water…
…but others may have their own ideas.
‘Spot the computer scientist’ 1/2.
One paddle wasn’t enough, now everybody wants a go.
In homage to the masterpiece that is the Merry Bokehlicious Christmas Song, have some ridiculously bokehlicious Christmas-type shots. Enjoy!
I was lucky enough to be able to attend the annual Computer Science Reading Party again this year; I posted some photos from last year’s Reading Party
(my 1st) which was just after I had taken delivery of the K20D. You would think that a year on there would be a noticeable improvement in my photos… but I still rush composition far too much!
It was raining a bit when we went out & whilst the K20D & grip are weather sealed, the 28mm Sigma isn’t, so I put the Helios 44-M (Soviet M42 58mm f2) on instead as it wouldn’t be the end of the world if that £13 investment got wet!
Should’ve rotated this one a bit more anticlockwise…
I didn’t even notice the threads of spider web here until I looked at the photo on my computer – guess I got the manual focus right!
Not sure what the deal with the pink stuff in the top corner is, could be some nasty chromatic aberration around spider web.
Now this bit of spider web I did notice at the time.
Didn’t get this anything like I wanted. Would’ve had to stop down more, but was already at the limit of how steady my hands are at f2.
And of course there were the taps!
Including these extra longs ones!
Went for a jaunt along the coastal path out past Albany Park, but didn’t really get very far as I spent all the remaining sunlight shooting these nice little pink flowers on the other side of the fence. Google-fu tells me they are silene dioica
or red campion
I tried taking some panoramas of the seafront too, but nothing really came out.
Was using my new (secondhand) Tenba tripod for these. Surprisingly irritating shooting with such a shallow depth of field when the breeze causes the subject to move in & out of focus all the time!
Apologies for the lack of updates as of late, University is keeping me exceedingly busy! I’ve been taking a fair few photos, but simply haven’t had the time to post-process & upload anything. The above is a quick crop of something I took today on the way to the lab to print more revision materials, think of it as a sneak peek of stuff to come ;)
