Another set of abstract images taken during the recent restrictions.

Boats berthed at Saltfleet Haven, a small river on the Lincolnshire coast North of mablethorpe. The waterway has become badly silted up over the years but was once a thriving location for local fishermen fishing out in the North Sea.

|Quite a few houses are thatched.|
|Looking down the main street towards the church. The church has major structural problems and is off limits to the general public.|
|This lady is a regular visitor to Steam Punk gatherings, Amy, Elizabeth Smith.|
|No-one will be surprised to see I found an "extreme" dog.|
|I'm told this is a "plague mask". Very topical during these "extreme" times.|
|Coloured contact lenses have become popular.|
|Another "really extreme" dog!|
|This lady had some extremely interesting make up.|
|A very friendly person, extreme eye lashes.|
|This young lady wasn't "extreme" at all, just extremely happy & pleasant.|
|Now this is "extreme"!|
|"Extreme" & downright scary!|
Of all the Steam Punk characters I've photographed, if I had
to choose a favourite this young lady would be high on my list.
Nothing extreme or scary about her, just extremely jolly with
a great smile.
Olympus EM10 Mk2 + 12-60mm Leica lens.
Sat in my garage on a rare hot day (well, 21 degrees is quite warm for May) listening to the
radio, I looked around for items to photograph. This is a mix of (VERY) odd subjects but
illustrates how boring the lockdown is now becoming.
|Boredom has been replaced by desperation now, didn't realise how old my hands look!|
|Suzi encouraged me to come into the garden.|
We have Welsh Poppies all over our garden, starting from a single
packet of seed many years ago and then years of self sowing. I'm a
lot to blame as I gather the seed each year and scatter it everywhere.
|A small percentage of the poppies produce these yellow flowers which we love.|
Don't know what this tiny plant is, we bought one in a small pot from the garden centre
many years ago and were told it would also self seed very freely. Well the original plant
disappeared but, as predicted, it's left its seed in paving everywhere, and we love it too.
|The first Peony of this year, almost open.|
|Another Peony bud bursting.|
We bought this plant last summer and thought it had died over winter but here it is again.
I have a fisheye lens on loan from number one son Michael. I got it to try before the "lockdown" so, as we can't go out or be visited, it's mine for the duration!
Ok, I can only use it in the home & garden, so here are a few pics from it.
These pics were taken about 2 inches away from the point of focus, very strange but the wide angle of view creates interesting pictures.
Slightly outside the patio doors, the whole garden is in view, including our house
back wall with hose reel! This fish eye lens is a lot of fun!
