Lunchtime Photography

Sam is currently working on the same business park as I am, but she only gets half an hour for lunch. That’s not really enough time for us to get home and back and have something to eat, so we’ve started taking packed lunch with us, and eating it in a nicely empty bit of a car park on the same business park. Since I get there half an hour before here, and the car pack backs onto a nice little footpath alongside the River Lowman, I’ve been getting a bit of extra photography time with my new Nikon D40.

There are some pretty flowers, on the left…

…and on the right…

Flower in the Other Corner

…and even occasionally in the middle…

I’ve spent some time chasing bees, but they’re tricky little critters, and difficult to focus on…

Bzzz!  You Are Cleared to Land

I’ve played Peek-a-Boo with a squirrel…

Beady-eye Squirrel

…but I think the squirrel won.

I even found a grasshopper for Chris Brogan, but I don’t think he was too keen on it (click the pic to see his comment on Flickr)…

Actually, with that big spike at the back, I was glad to be able to keep my distance with the 55-200 VR zoom lens.

It’s a nice way to spend a bit of time in the middle of the day, though, and a great way to relax.
