Where does the cable go? This is much less than some streets I’ve seen here. This is down my little street here.

In order to stay away from the busy areas of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, we found somewhere in the North Pennines we've never been to before: Ashgill Force.

Loads more photos here if you like iancylkowski.com/blog/2020/8/2 👍

I did an experiment shooting these photos on this hike: aiming to shoot for SOOC. It was fun.

The passion of these young guys is really impressive! It's always a joy to take pictures of their games. I try to do as often as possible! 😀

Happy to finally spot the Hieroglyphic Flat (Odina hieroglyphica) today, 2 August, 2020 at Upper Seletar Reservoir, Singapore. It was quietly resting at a sunlit spot on a forest path.

Despite appearances, this is a butterfly (a member of the skippers) and usually rests with its wings flat, showing off the distinctive, cryptic patterns on its wings.

After I finished up in the forge today, the parrots were waiting for me at the top of the stairs. So I told them I had to get the seed from inside and they got out of the way and then enjoyed a tasty brunch.

Some wildlife I spotted on a hike today. It was really nice in the shade, but it was also very hilly, and uncomfortably warm in the sun. I ended up staggering back to the car at the end.

The yellow and black bird is some sort of oriole. The black and white one is a black phoebe. I think the rabbit is a desert cottontail.

I had a film developed and I am not sure about the results... Some of the pictures are really blurry and I wonder if this is an issue with the camera or the film...
All of these were shot on a Leica M6 with the 50mm f2 Summicron on Ilford Delta 100 film.I notice that there is often a lot of bloom around bright areas in a frame. Is there anything I can do about that?

Spotted a group of Scaly-breasted Munias (Lonchura punctulata) at a park connector in Hougang, Singapore, this morning. They were busy feeding and didn't mind me stopping nearby to take shots of them.

Their common name comes from the pattern of feathers on their chest which resembles scales.
