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!)

Monochrome Monday… Sheringham Lifeboat Museum

The Sheringham Lifeboat Museum, seen here on a glorious September afternoon. The museum houses the Henry Ramey Upcher, the second private lifeboat (replacing the Augusta) to be stationed in Sheringham. Launched on 4 September 1894 she stayed on station for 41 years until she was slowly retired from duty and by 1935 the RNLI Liverpool-class vessel J C Madge had replaced her on rescue work.

A snapshot taken while passing the Nottingham Contemporary art centre in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. I must confess that I’ve never been inside the building but funnily enough have managed to enter the deconsecrated church next door that’s now the Pitcher & Piano pub!
