You know – I suspect this is the first CMMC of March, but I know Cee is very busy creating these challenges for us so I’m not going to complain about a suspected ‘copy-pasta’😉

Close up rather than macro from me and an experiment. I’m not using one of my cameras – it’s all down to the Moto g50 for this week’s entry. I thought it was time to take a look at what the mobile can do on the ‘pro’ setting. The first thing I noticed was, it’s not a wide angle any more! So lets see what we got as I moved in close to subjects in pro mode…

…To start – a shot of apples in the fruit bowl…

…The Badge on my Car – you can see me and the phone reflected 😂

…And here’s my normal camera of choice for transport photography (could have used this for X last week 😉)…

…and to finish, a couple of towels in the bathroom…

…Not too shabby a performance 👍 Not as good at the Canon and Fuji are able to achieve but more than acceptable.

Catch up with Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge Here.

Joining in once more with Brian’s Last on the Card Challenge👍 In keeping with my ‘only use the mobile phone camera when I don’t have an actual camera with me’, I didn’t take any shots with the Moto g50 this month.

On the Canon 5D mkIII, we have the last shot from a tight game between Wingate & Finchley and fellow strugglers Brightlingsea Regent on 26th of February…

…Dylan is harassing their keeper in an attempt to steal the ball, but nothing will come of that and the ref will get bored and blow the final whistle a minute early. Both teams really needed a win, but the 1-1 Draw was probably a fair result. It was interesting to join a chat between the managers after the game – seems they were at the West Ham academy together as youth footballers😎

I took a train-spotting trip out to Dartford on the 28th of February. It was a grey day but the Fujifilm X-Pro2 generally handled the light and the colours well. Sometimes you can’t get the shot you’d like because of circumstances – like when the train is running through a platform with no room to create an angle…

…The idiot in the woolly hat actually walked right to the edge of the platform as the train approached. He would have totally ruined my photo but, much worse, he must have really worried the driver as a potential suicide – we sadly get too many of those currently. Fortunately he stepped back behind the line again. I do wonder what some passengers are thinking 😒 66729 is hauling a late running load of stone hoppers from Acton to Tonbridge.

Both photos unaltered except for resizing for the web.

Running late – which is frustrating as I took most of the photos for this challenge a week ago on Tuesday! But it was a busy weekend and lots of football photos to process. So my posts have had to wait. Anyway, here we go with ‘X’ for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge 👍

Oxford Street in London’s West End…

…Oxford Street is full of shops and several well known brands use the letter X. There’s Next for example…

…and there’s T.K.Maxx…

A lot of the shoppers will have arrived by Underground at Oxford Circus station…

Now an older shot at a different location – A National Express coach at Victoria…

…and there’s a convenient ‘X’ in the roof above 😎
