Beamish Bus

Took a day out today to visit Beamish open air museum in North East England today where the past really comes to life,my grandfather first took me here as a young boy and today as a grandfather myself I took my grandson to visit this.It’s an open air museum.over acres of land where buildings from the past have been re constructed to give an insight of life in the north east with a roadway and tramway providing access to all its areas.This is a vehicle on the roadway given an authentic treatment of a view from the 1920’s if they had colour imaging in the day.DSC_0010-2a

Chelsea and I’ve changed my lens!

popped out today to collect a piece of furniture from a local store and walked past a store which deals in media,you know games,dvd’s,electrical and the like and spotted in it’s window a Sigma 17-70 f2.8.This aroused my curiosity as I use a lot of Pro glass on my D300,I’m lucky enough to have the Trinity of glass i.e 12-24 2.8.24-70 2.8 and the mighty 80-200 2.8 however I try to restrict myself here to shooting with my lovely little D70s and an 18-70 f4.5.Well this is gonna change,with a bargain price and a lowepro lens case the deal was done,but only after I’d captured a shot of the sales assistant called Chelsea.1/100 f3.4 iso400.chelsea
