A shot from the digital archives tonight…

An unidentified class 377 ‘Electrostar’ electric multiple unit crosses Worthing Road at Angmering with the 19.32 Southern service from Portsmouth & Southsea (the 20.18 from Angmering) to Brighton on 20 May 2015. I didn’t have a tripod with me so rested my camera on top of a handy fence post and hoped for the best!

This pic cropped up tonight while I was looking for something else entirely, my archives definitely need a good sort out!

A shot from the digital archives today… I remember getting more than a few strange looks as I stood in the middle of Listergate in Nottingham, apparently photographing people’s feet!

I sometimes miss the low light performance of the full-frame Nikon D600 but I don’t miss the weight or bulk (or the perpetually grubby sensor!)

Single frame… Definitely Third Class!

I recently found an old hard drive lurking in a drawer and on it were some images that I took in 2007 using a Sony α100 that had been a prize in a ‘first name out of the hat’ competition in a photography magazine.

I was using a Nikon D200 at the time and after taking a couple of hundred images with the Sony I passed it on to my wife (who didn’t get on with it at all and traded it in for a Nikon D80 a few months later if memory serves me…)

The above image is of a door belonging to a London, Midland & Scottish Railway Third Sleeper carriage that was awaiting scrapping at the Midland Railway-Butterley in Derbyshire.
