Another shot from the digital archives today… The Christmas Tree that helps illuminate Canning Circus in Nottingham, photographed six years ago.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hogswatch, Cool Yule or whatever celebration floats your boat at this time of year…

Nikon D600, Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4D, 1/160s, f11, ISO 200
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!)
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.
