A mobile post for today. As part of a team day with work, we visited Motat 2 – the aeroplane and train museum. For most of the afternoon I used my Sony, of which I will post some images in the next few days. For this shot however I used my samsung galaxy s2. The […]Read More Planes of Past
A busy day today, so one from recent archives. Shot at one of our local beaches on the Sony Nex and Sigma 30mm lens. In Gimp I adjusted the colour levels and added simulated film grain.
