194/366 Lovely Skies

Amongst other reasons, this is why I get up and go for a walk in the morning. This morning was an excellent example. As soon as I stepped outside I saw that the sky was brightening. The first part of the walk I normally take has me heading west, away from the sunrise. I do a sharp U-Turn at the end of Stoke Road and then have about a mile and a half until I reach the waterfront.

The skies like this occur for me, timing-wise, over a fairly narrow window. Give it a couple of weeks I will be walking in daylight throughout. I admit, that some of the pictures during daylight can be as boring as pictures taken when it is dark. On the other hand, I am about to get the Tom Ang book out and look at what the first assignment in the book is. Obviously, I won’t be able to go to places as grand as his pictures were taken, but I will attempt to adapt it. One thing I will have problems with is portraiture – but tonight is about the waterfront, not photography.

One notable thins this morning was the water in the harbour had a distinct swell;

I don’t think any of my pictures show it, and it’s difficult to say how high. But it was much rougher than normal. We’ve been over on the Gosport ferry a couple of times when it was rough. It’s quite bouncy when you sit in the front of the boat.

Talking of the ferry, they don’t just go between Portsmouth and Gosport. They run trips. We’ve been out to see the cruise ships go out, to see an American Aircraft carrier close up and for parties. They always serve nice food. But, they usually end up doing a Grand Harbour Tour. Now the first couple of times you do one of these they are great. Then, third and successive time you go out , after you come back, and are itching to get off the boat and you hear the announcement “We will give a Grand Tour of the harbour” it’s not necessarily the first thing you want to hear. Still, it has been quite a while since we been on one. It is quite impressive, the first time you do one.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
