Weight and Stuff Report – 28 January 2010

Hmm. Today’s random thingy was an upward one, mutter.

Having had a morning off yesterday, I was planning to walk to work this morning. And when I saw that for the first time in a while that the sky was mostly clear and a lovely pale shade of blue, I made sure to leave the house in time to take some pictures. I did a quick tour of Windmill Hills, Gateshead town centre and the Tyne Bridge, which just about got me to work on time. I’ll post some more pictures at the weekend, but here’s one as a sample.

This is a somewhat brighter version of one of the pictures I posted last week, and it’s more the sort of thing I was hoping for. I quite like the way the flare from the low Sun spills out of the circular image into the black surround, but maybe that’s just me being me…

Oh, and here’s one more picture for today. It’s another view of the Gateshead car park taken through the hole in the fence.

Through the Fence

The fisheye lens makes the concrete structure look incredibly isolated. Unfortunately, it’s a lot closer than it appears here[1]. Oh, and the hole in the fence is actually square – it’s just the effect of the lens making it look round.

[1] Should be a warning to all users of extreme wide-angle lenses: Objects in the viewfinder are closer than they appear.
