Weight and Stuff Report – 1 July 2013

Up just a wee bit today, but never mind. I had hoped to have another lunchtime stroll with the camera, but at precisely the time I could go out, the weather turned grey, damp and windy, so that didn’t happen, mutter.

While I was wandering down to the Quayside yesterday, I spotted this interesting thing:

Camera: X-E1
Aperture: ƒ/5.6
Shutter speed: 1/30s
Focal length: 21.4mm
ISO: 320
Taken: 30 June, 2013
Location: 54° 58.1682′ 0″ N 1° 36.4308′ 0″ W

It’s clearly been there a long time, but judging by the mixture of paint and rust on the hook at the end of the chain, it hasn’t moved for quite a while:

As the GPS links shows, it’s near the corner of Akenside Hill. Interesting, whatever it is…

One more photo for today, just for a bit of variety – this is an old mail coach from the National Railway Museum:
