Determined to go somewhere.....anywhere....booked a timed entry slot for my reluctant family to walk around one of my local National Trust estates. Meant to book tomorrow, but got today in error (no refunds of course). Tomorrow's weather forecast is good.

It was actually quite nice between the episodes of torrential rain.

I take it you didn't make such an error when ordering your new camera and free lens.
(And no doubt your other half thought the same). :laugh:

And looking at your photos in the other threads, (bridges, trees, rivers etc) you've got more atmosphere from the bad weather than you probably would tomorrow.
All great shots Richard. :thumbup:

It had been a while since I did my last "walk of the pandemic" (while having a camera with me, anyway). In the meantime, face masks have become "strongly advised" (and will soon also be "mandatory") in indoor public spaces. It took me a while to find something worthwhile to shoot, but near the end of my walk I captured this through a window of our central station:

Every weekend my wife and I try to go somewhere for a walk or hike. Yesterday we went to Pittsburgh's North Shore area, just across the Allegheny River from downtown Pittsburgh. Here's a few of the things we saw. All shots taken with PEN E-PL7 and Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens. Unless otherwise mentioned, I think all of these are SOOC JPEG's.

First, just a sidewalk scene.

Next, the underside of the Fort Duquesne Bridge. I increased the contrast a little to accentuate the yellow paint on the bridge structure.

Excterior shot of the Jerome Bettis Grille 36, named after the Steelers Hall of Fame Running Back. Currently being remodeled inside while it's closed during the pandemic.

Just across the street from Heinz Field I found this "Terrible Towel" hanging in the branches of a tree. I did not stage this photo - didn't touch the towel. Just photographed it as I found it. And felt that since the Steelers are set to play the Cleveland Browns today, I must post it here. Go Steelers!

And here's a shot of PNC Park, where the Pittsburgh Pirates play. I ran this through the Key Line art filter. This shot is a cross-post from the Art Filter thread.

Rather flat light on Bodmin Moor today so I spent most of my time in B&W mode.

The hills to the east of the town center are good for exercise walks. This is the bottom of one of my regular walks. Starts about 200 m from my apartment.

A few years ago we were near Chatsworth and I noticed it was well illuminated at night.
One evening I drove through the estate on one of the public roads and no sooner had I got out of the car to try and take a photo, than I was surrounded by security patrols.
I was told in no uncertain terms that I wasn't allowed to stop the car and they suspected me of poaching the deer. :eek:

We pre-empted that issue by buying a ticket to the gardens beforehand. £10 inc. parking during an allocated timeslot. I don't normally like contributing to the coffers there, (looking forward to the revolution as I do!) but it promised to be a wonderful light show and it's been a dreary december, so...... Unfortunately it was just OK, so we won't be darkening that particular doorstep again!
