This is a blast(er) from the past. Clearing out my attic, I came across my old Games Workshop Warhammer 40k figures. I used to paint these – in fact I spent more time painting than playing the game. This is from the my Space Marine combat group.
I don’t think star photography is something I’m really going to pursue, amazing as some of the pictures I see are. I see Nikon has produced a version of the 810 specifically for the purpose, so it’s clearly a popular subject. I was having a play around in the back garden, which is not the best place, due to light pollution. But I did find catching planes going over rather fun.
I was up early this morning to watch Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria sail up Southampton Water and into dock. They are in Southampton to celebrate 175 years of Cunard. Difficult photography conditions. Low light, rain and a reasonable distance from the ships.
This is Queen Victoria
