Theme for this week is " Out on a Walk". Wide open theme that encompasses anything you might see whilst out on a local walk. Choosing this mainly as an incentive for me to shoot something current as I`ve not been out with my camera for ages so a couple of local walks called for. Anything you see, anywhere - wide enough theme for you? Edit how you wish.

I had a plan this week. A neighbours wife died recently and he`s very lonely. Manage to make him cry at the moment any time I talk to him, which he takes badly as a typical proud male. Anyway he`s bought and sold so many cameras over the last couple of years trying to find one he likes and I keep saying "Stick with that one ,it`s fine". He never does and sells each from a Canon 550, to Fuji X20 and Olympus compact for way below value with a few hundred shots on each, usually of the back garden, before showing me his latest in the street. Anyway I told him I was out for a photo walk to get a walk image and he could tag along. Afraid it did him more good than me as we talked lots of his family / memories  and I took only 4 photos. He had the attention span of a 3 year old it seemed to me and he took in not one jot of my words of wisdom ( ;)) re composition tips, aperture values and the relationship between speed, aperture and ISO. Never mind he seemed to enjoy it, even though I nearly killed him with the hills in our 2 hour walk. Given how much support my father in law had from neighbours unknown to us as he struggled to live on his own over the last couple of years since his wife died until his own recent death it`s nice to giev some payback. I thought I got a lovely shot of him with his camera as he sat on a bench looking wistfully at the beck and Pooh bridge as we call it looking as if he was thinking sadly of his wife. He liked it so much he deleted it when I showed him what sort of a portrait he could do with his camera as he doen`t like being in pictures! The one that got away.
It`s a Walk in the Park
