Weight and Stuff Report – 30 April 2013

Down again today, woo, hoo.

I walked to work this morning, shock, horror, sensation, etc. And I went out for a walk at lunchtime. Today’s route took me in a long loop which took in part of Leazes Park, which I hadn’t visited for a while. Here’s the Garmin thingy, once again created with a mildly modified GPX file from Geotag Photos Pro.

I did, of course, have the Fujifilm X100S[1] with me for the walk, and I’ve got a nice selection of images which will be appearing here as tuits permit. But I can let you have a small sample. This is a close view of an eagle statue on the terrace in Leazes Park:

After leaving the park, I walked back via Gallowgate, passing through St Andrew’s churchyard. I’d never really looked at this tower before, but now I have, I’ve got a much better feeling for the age of at least part of the building:

And finally for today, here’s a bit of macro work – a rather nice daffodil in the churchyard. I’ve cropped this one down and darkened it a little to bring out more detail in the petals.
