Trying my hand at wild flowers and grass. Found these Thistle on a waste bit of ground. Very shallow depth of field though.

Look good to me. Are they in a field or roaming about.
These were in a field with some other cows, winter just gone they were free-roaming across the hills and onto the road - I buggered off when they got closer :)

Looking through the pics and found these I took at the old house:

Dry lightning, no rain.

Yonks ago (before Victorian times I think) Cats were occasionally sealed under the floorboards of new houses, as a blood sacrifice to ward off evil spirits. Which is why people sometimes find them in old houses. In case you didn't know already
The ladies who showed us the cat were talking about this. Apparently two bibles have been found underneath the floorboards in different parts of the house, also shoes, to ward off witches. Which they say, is why it has a lovely atmosphere to work in.

A reminder that, if you order your men to discharge muskets into an unarmed crowd, said crowd might get a wee bit tetchy and a big bit 'lynchy'.

A shallow depth of field is normal in macro photography. Something to do with physics (I'm a Geordie so obviously can't explain why).

A way around it is to use a tripod and take multiple exposures with your focus in different points and the magic of photoshop will combine the images to give you one with a greater depth of field.

You've done a decent job though.

Thanks, I was about 10 ft away, at 400mm, 4f, 1/800, 200iso, hand held. I have a couple of tripods but don't use them much, though I will have to with a 1982, 1000mm F11, mirror lens I just got, hand held it with x2 extender, so 2000mm, F22, about 1/84. The photos were interesting, some might call them "Arty" but I would know the truth.

Was with the 15/19th Hussars 72/74. I remember a guy had an L/P called "Learn yer self Geordie" very funny, only remember a few phrases now. "Divent drop yer dottle on the proggy mat".

I was attached to the 15th/19th 73- 74 but stayed on in Fally with the boneheads when they went to Omagh. LAD REME.

I rode down to the Lion at Cassington today, nice meet , to see a few old faces
one of the guys Jack, is a skilled engineer, a few of his motorcycles have been featured on here before
today he rode his Ariel Twin, neat little thing, I thought it was single, we got chatting about things, and he told me a few years ago he read a book by Major John Howards daughter
in it she mentions him being billeted with a local family, the description of the house sounded familier, Jack realised that this was the elderly couple he had purchased his house from, after John Howardss traffic injury he was treated in the hospital over the road, and wheeled back to the house and spent time recovering in their garden !!
