On a lovely sunny June evening a walk along the sea path past Pickie Funpark at Bangor is a pleasant way to while away an hour or so. Here’s a few shots made on the Fujifilm X-T30, using the excellent Acros Film Simulation.

Scarlett visted the studio this evening with her mum and her little sister to make some lovely photographs and memories, and among them was this little black and white portrait.

When you chain your bicycle to a sign which reads ‘Take me home!’
I found this scene when wandering around the Botanic area of Belfast on Saturday morning. Someone has chained a bike to a pole, and an advertising sign above the bike reads, “Take me home!” What a challenge for a would-be bike thief!
