    My personal Corona thread

    I've decided to try and get out every day either walking or cycling after a long lay off with a dodgy knee, the imprisonment dictated by the current state of emergency has given me added impetus to do this. I've already put an hour aside each morning to get my guitar playing going again, and the (hopefully) daily exercise will also work alongside getting a lot more photography done (hopefully). Also, Photoshop decided it didn't want to play any more, so I'm now on a learning curve with GIMP, which after an initial play seems very good. I'd like to think I'll post an image per day, but I know how difficult that can be, but we'll see. I guess a lot will be taken with my Canon G12. Expect some garbage along the way! So here's my first offering, "Through a Cattle Grid" . . .


    Day 1.

    I was thinking of doing something similar, but by god I live in a relatively dull area for photography. I look forward to it my friend!

    No! There's always something worth photographing, you just have to look in the right place, get the camera out and get walking.

    No such thing as a bad area for photography . Good pictures are all around you, sometimes in the most unlikely of places!

    I admire the inspiration from folk, thankfully having a phone on the camera allows me to try and capture anything that catches the eye. I've shot the few parks to death, not interesting places to begin with (though the light may help at the moment) and the rest of where I live is pure suburbia housing. Last thing I need is people thinking I'm spying and perving with a camera

    Great idea Bob, and I look forward to seeing how it goes - looking good so far

    I set myself a task to take a photograph every day for a year a few years back. It worked really well for several months until I became ill and ran out of things to photograph in our bedroom! So I wish you greater success than I had.

    Lynn and I are confined to the house and garden due to being at high risk, (age/health), so I'm really confined to reviewing my previous snaps. An opportunity to improve some of my earlier efforts. I now use Silkypix for my RAW images and Affinity Photo for my JPEGs and the TIFFs produced by Silkypix. If you don't get on with GIMP then Affinity is very good, (better than Photoshop IMO), it also has a built in RAW converter which covers Nikon, Canon etc, I only use Silkypix as it is better with my Fujifilm X-Tran images.

    Stay safe.
    Best Regards - Peter

    I have indeed and it is very good, but Silkypix is way better when you get to grips with the interface. But then it should be as Fuji has decided to major with Silkypix, (easy to understand as they're fellow Japanese companies), and so they get deeper access to Fuji's code than others do - which is why Lightroom etc often have issues.

    Thanks Peter! I'll take a look at Affinity. I only really used Photoshop to add borders and maybe a little sharpening and contrast after processing the RAW files in Lightroom, and I'm already finding the borders easier in Gimp. I like Lightroom for ease of batch importing, and being able to use the Nik collection of software plugins from the Lightroom menu, which Google made free when they got it. For B&W I used Silver Efex Pro2 on the first image here, and Analog Efex Pro2 for the second one. Certainly worth a look, especially Silver Efex. Hope you both stay well.

    It is, and it gets better, (quicker), with each iteration. The earlier versions were great at what they did but were so sloooooooooooooooooow. They addressed that issue a couple of versions ago and now it's quite quick. You can get a month's free trial.

    Lightroom is excellent for any Nikon or Canon user as it handles the Bayer demosaicing very well, but it struggles with Fuji's X-Trans sensor. They have made improvements but for Fuji users Silkypix and Affinity are better products all round. The Nik collection works just fine with Affinity too, as do many other PS plug-ins. Oh, and all updates to Affinity, (there have been many, it's currently at 1.8.2.620), have been free to-date. I use all three Affinity products, Photo, Designer and Publisher, they interlink with one another; and all have been excellent - a local UK company too.

    If you have standard borders than you can set up and record macros in Affinity Photo so with just a couple of clicks it's done.

    A hovering heron. This bird's been aloft here since the 2017 version of the Lumiere light festival.

    Day 5.

    It's quite surreal to be in a deserted and silent city that's normally thronging with people, with an empty space where there's normally a bustling outdoor market, live music and quite often the bird man with his falcons and owls on display. The two blokes who were there didn't have much to say, but our social distancing was good ! ;-)





    However, around the corner there was a message of hope . . .

    That's my favourite so far. As we said to the kids in 2016 whilst our youngest was stuck in isolation as holiday and anticipated event dates passed, not cancelled, postponed. Everything was reinstated, and now they say it to encourage their mates.

    I'm pleased you like it Matthew, and well done for giving your children such a positive attitude. I'm enjoying getting the feel of photography again, it's getting me off my ar$e when I really wouldn't have bothered otherwise. The freezing rain and hail at the end of todays ramble was actually quite invigorating! Hope you all stay well.

    Day 6.

    A cold day, got hailed on as I set off! Took a route into the city that needs stout footwear, but affords lovely views. Cold and windy, so a couple of quick snaps on the G12 for today's effort, the camera got me out when I might not have bothered.





    Taken sitting here . . .





    A panorama to give an idea of the view, the Wear doesn't curve as in the shot that's an effect of the iPhone panorama, it's dead straight and where the track meets the stand of trees on the left is Durham Rowing Club, where the races all start when the regatta is held. That track would have dozens of people enjoying their Sunday in normal times.

    The market in town is the indoor/outdoor market, which is approx behind the tree in the first picture, @ 3/4 of a mile from where the pictures were taken. The market is indeed closed at the moment, sadly.

    Sorry, I was responding to post 18. I should have been clearer. As usual. Did I ever mention I was from Houghton?

    Ah, I understand now! That's just where I was. I'm down the road from Houghton, just by the A690 sliproad to Belmont.

    By chance I was down by the river today walking directly towards Finchale! I went to photograph Belmont Viaduct (see next post). That's a good idea, there's a right of way for most of the route and a cheeky bit over fields to get there at the finish. I'll have a look at the map and if it's doable I'll make it a day out with a packed lunch, it'll probably be a good 10 miles or more the way I'd return on the other side of the river.

    Day 7.

    Down to the Wear a different way, and then head north to take a look at Belmont Viaduct. There's some info on it in these links . . .

    https://historicengland.org.uk/listi...-entry/1120726

    https://www.palatinate.org.uk/durham...otten-viaduct/


    With hindsight I should have gone earlier rather than late afternoon and taken a lot more time looking for different angles, but that's for another day. The camera did it's job and got me out walking, which was the point. I could take a packed lunch and spend hours down there, and not just the viaduct, it's a lovely place.









    I'll be back down to see how quickly these grow . . .

    Addendum to post #30. I got to wondering what the plant in Day 7 is. Some searching later I stumbled on an excellent site called wildflowerfinder. The homepage is vast, and I had no luck here so opened the search page, then "add photo". Here I got lucky, as before I did anything the examples they showed of how to post included my plant! It's a butterbur , surprisingly a member of the daisy/dandelion family, as the link shows. hope this is of interest and perhaps useful. I'll be back to photograph it again as it develops :-), it should change quite considerably by May and I expect still be doing my Corona thing then :-( .

    Day 8.

    133 YARDS, inscribed on a coping stone. A quirky little detail from Durham's ecclesiastic past, comparatively recent really given how far back it goes. I noticed this quite a while ago when mooching about with the camera and glibly assumed it might have something to do with the Chorister's School, which is close by, some sort of race I thought. Wrong. I was in contact with the Cathedral archaeologist about another matter, and he told me that back in the 1830's (IIRC) one of the senior clerics would take a daily walk and wanted to know just how far he'd been, so he had the strip of land measured and the stone duly inscribed, so he could take his daily stroll and tot up the yards.

    So we are looking down a bank to the town side end of Prebends Bridge, behind us at the top the dark tunnel into the College. At the top of the steps is the coping stone . . .





    Here's the stone with inscription . . .





    A little closer look, it's a little more worn than when I first spotted it . . .





    Look to our left to see the level piece of land where our cleric took his exercise . . .






    Finally, looking over the gate, lovely and level for a stroll . . .





    A little extra today, from a few years ago but related and maybe of interest . . .


    If you zoom in the first picture, you can just see at the bottom of the bank a bench and a tree trunk,
    this is they on a cold winter's night . . .





    Here's Prebend's Bridge, taken using a 10stop neutral density filter with an exposure of about 5 mins IIRC . . .

    That's lovely and takes me back, but you'd never get a Spitfire under that!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xf3UtmHLKUU

    I don't know why that popped up in my head but I thought it was worth sharing...

    If you did get to Finchale it would do my heart good. I just wish I could take photos like those.

    Thank you! I think that if a Spitfire flew under Prebends it would emerge with slightly shorter wings! I will be going to Finchale at some point, if I can't get there via my side of the river I can definitely get there by crossing the Wear in Durham and walking some tracks I know from mountain biking.

    Day 9.

    I pass this graffiti quite often when I walk into town and I've long wanted to get a shot of it. However it's down below a footbridge I cross over the main road into town in an enclosed yard on University property, it would take decent climb to get in and out, not at my age! However some contractors left a gate open after they were working in an adjacent yard, and via a set of steps I popped in. Shy bairns get nowt as they say.





    I'm pleased I got it, because once it's gone, it's gone. To illustrate my thinking, here's a fine pair of doors in Old Elvet that I pass when I go to the Dun Cow, I'm pleased I shot them when I did, they were much more interesting pre gentrification (student lets probably ;-( ). The second shot is a cropped screen grab from Google Earth showing them as they are now. Thanks for looking in.

    Love the graffiti shot Bob, one of my favourite subjects. As you say, you have to capture it whilst it's there as it's soon gone.

    I was lucky to find one in Nerja, Southern Spain a few years back, which was a very well executed replica of the Guernica painting by Picasso. Sadly it was gone in a very short while. Another of my favourites is a very clever piece depicting a boy feeding a cat on a set of steps in Malta, which again I suspect won't be there any longer.

    Must post a few in the Random Picture thread.

    I was lucky to find one in Nerja, Southern Spain a few years back, which was a very well executed replica of the Guernica painting by Picasso. Sadly it was gone in a very short while. Another of my favourites is a very clever piece depicting a boy feeding a cat on a set of steps in Malta, which again I suspect won't be there any longer.

    Must post a few in the Random Picture thread.
    I saw the boy feeding cat shot in the Random Picture thread Peter, a great one to spot and capture!

    I don't know why that popped up in my head but I thought it was worth sharing...

    If you did get to Finchale it would do my heart good. I just wish I could take photos like those.
    I looked at the Finchale website and Heritage England have closed the site for obvious reasons, and the owners of the caravan site have also closed the touring part of the site. :-( I would have taken my full frame body with a 17-40 lens and gotten in amongst the ruins, but I'll have to settle for shots from outside the railings when I get there.

    Day 10.

    What a difference an SSD makes when processing. My Mac took a bad turn last year and the excellent lads at MJS Computers sorted it for me, I had a very interesting couple of visits to their premises to watch them get into the machine, clean it all out (very dusty) including the fans, and install the SSD and a new disc drive. It's a 2011 machine and is massively faster now, which makes Lightroom etc much easier and quicker to use. Had another sit up on the Palace Green in the shadow of the Cathedral, completely alone with only birdsong to hear, quite surreal, I could have been the only person in the world. I just hope when this crisis is over I never get another chance to do it. Here's today's efforts, steel and wood . . .

    Day 11.

    Was drawn back into the city today, the silence and absence of people and traffic is something I'll never (hopefully) know again, so I want to get it while it's there. The buds are starting to come through now, so took the chance to grab a silhouette before the trees are in leaf, it's a shot I've done before but taken 90deg to the left. It's the far left hand side of the Cathedral as you look at it on Palace Green, just at the top of Dun Cow lane.






    Here's the shot I took a few years ago on a cold winter's evening . . .

    Durham. It really is a magical city. Those last two in particular are pictures to be proud of.
