I found an old R72 filter I last used years ago on my 300D today. It was the right thread size for my new Fujifilm X-A1 so I took it for a play in my local cemetary!

The last time I used it, the filter was so dark all I could do was guess about the exposure and composition. Today I could see the scene (just) on the screen.

I love a lot of the IR work I see other people producing. I’m not sure if its possible to achieve the same with just the filter (as opposed to a modified camera) but I’m going to see what I can do if the sun stays out.

Good Friday

For the last four good Fridays, members of the churches around West Kirby have made their own crucifixes and stood round the marine lake with them for an hour.


It was a beautiful, clear day today with even the lighthouse at Talacre visible in the distance which I’ve never seen from there before.

I watched them take their places round the lake then walked round and chatted to a few of them. They mostly said they were celebrating the crucifixion and reminding people what Easter was all about.  

Its always struck me as odd the way Christians celebrate the death of their hero by parading round the instrument of his death.

But each to their own.. They couldn’t have been more friendly and it made for an interesting sight.

A few from a walk round Liverpool on Grand National night. Great to overhear so many people saying how great they thought Liverpool was.
