The Lozarithm Lens

By lozarithm


As the Wings And Talons falconer had said he would be bringing a couple of different birds to Bowood the next day, I called in there for twenty minutes and managed to get pictures of the kestrel (Laddy, or possibly Lady) and a shy little owl (Katy) that was initially hiding on the ground next to its pedestal until I asked for it be coaxed into full view, where it then chose to settle.

My destination was Bradford-on-Avon, partly to see the annual exhibition of photographs of the Bradford camera club, and partly for a stroll along the canal with my new 1.4 converter. There was quite a throng in the country park beside the Avon and I was glad soon to be on the Kennet and Avon towpath. I walked past the Lock Inn and across the road to Bradford Wharf, which was also quite busy with lots of holiday boats negotiating the locks.

Behind the café there is a raised park area with picnic benches overlooking the Wharf where I was able to spend another hour or more of reading and writing and occasionally photographing what was going on along the canal, using my long lens.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Primal Scream - Movin' On Up (1992)
Primal Scream have in the past sometimes been written off as a Rolling Stones tribute band, but you would have to delve very far back in the Stones' catalogue to find anything with such a solid and inspirational groove as this has. This was a single taken from their classic album Screamadelica.
