Since the weekend I've carried my camera around a lot on visits to friends and whatnot but not taken many photos. I've picked out a few here, starting with a couple from a visit to Sue's house in East Sutton last Wednesday. Her garden looks fabulous at the moment, with paths cut through long meadowy grass full of flowers. The sun came out in the evening, allowing a window for photography before dinner.
here's one I photographed earlier, to show you what I mean).
I spent last weekend in Hastings, helping to sort stuff out for dad, who's just out of hospital. The weather was photography-unfriendly so I didn't go anywhere further than the back yard with the camera.
Rob came down on Saturday and from dad's we went to Rye Harbour for a couple of hours of late-afternoon birding in blowy conditions.
Sunday was a washout. On Monday I had a walk on Ide Hill with Michele but saw next to nothing wildlife-wise, I think I took two photos. Had I brought a sensible lens there'd have been more - the views from up there were wonderful. Rain cut the walk short though, sadly. The sun returned in the evening and Rob and I paid a very brief visit to Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve, to take yet more test shots with the Sigmonster (at the request of Sigma UK, who seem to be on the verge of agreeing that it needs to go to Japan to have its underexposing problem fixed once and for all).
