Now that I have more time to find long lost photographs, I found this one from an ex agency.

Ed Roberts Campus was in the list of Alamy Needs. They had almost no photos of this educational center for people with disabilities. It's near my home and I go by there a few times a month, so took some photos.

Found this nest lying on the ground of a woodland path, obviously having fallen from a tree. Just fascinated that the enterprising wee birdie that built it has used strands of blue plastic in its construction. I'd heard stories of other birds using all sorts of things to build with, but it's the first time I've actually seen it myself.

The robins who build nests in our courtyard garden in NYC also seem to like that blue plastic.

Sign of the times? A vandalised direction signpost with an inset showing what it used to look like.

It transpires there has been a spate of these thefts, light fingered brethren taking advantage of quieter surroundings are picnhing the metal for scrap.

Should have used some of said strands to tie it to the branch!

I've resorted to taking pictures of fruit bought in my one visit to the supermarket in the last 3 weeks.

And more pictures of the children...

Always on the lookout for even more clownfish images. The male fish tends the eggs, keeping them clean and aerated.

Not the world's most exciting image, but it gets better to realise that it's the only image of this subject on Alamy. And I'm not really worried about every man and his dog rushing out to get more photos - it's the only one I've seen in over 40 years of diving and was found at a rather obscure dive site in north Bali. Plus, the fish was so shy, I got off the one shot and it went down it's hole and did not come back out.

Queens Swan Uppers on the River Thames a couple of years back. I'd wanted to go again this summer, but who knows if it will go ahead? :(

This thread seems much quieter than usual... I guess we are all a little constrained on what interesting photos we can take!

 

So to keep it going, a few more of mine.!

 

I used paper for a background and had it placed on a table in-front of a window. Lightroom and photoshop removed the joins in paper and fixed shadows.

And the other side of my back fence at the end of the garden is my children's primary school so... a closed looking school photo!
