My wallpaper today is admittedly one of my personal all-time favourite shots, looking up at a floodlight.
I can’t really explain why (and it certainly drives my wife nuts when we’re out with the cameras!) but I’m fascinated by looking at the various things overhead that we just normally don’t bother to look up at. Such as this floodlight. I know for a fact that every day in Swansea hundreds of people walk past this floodlight, but I bet you that hardly anyone ever notices it.
This was taken with my current pocket camera of choice (and a fantastic birthday present from my wife), the Canon IXUS 210, on its first real outing. I’ve been quietly impressed with this camera so far, and the ability to touch the screen and choose where the focal point of the shot will be is perfect for me.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
