365 2023 ~ Hipstamatic week 4

This week I chose the Monti Hipstapak which consists of the Sergio lens, which enhances cool tones, and the Maximus LXIX film, which adds a warm grain.

Sunday 22nd January
I know, I know, another cat picture, but I can’t help it. You should see how many I don’t post! Phil was at work until 9pm so a quiet day for me. Winnie always likes to supervise my blogging, or prevent it from happening entirely. Here she was just sitting quietly with me so I got a bit done.

Back to work day! πŸ₯΄ I finish work on Mondays and Tuesdays at 4pm, and at this time of the year the sun is just going down. Today when I got in the car I noticed 3 crows in a tree silhouetted agains the sunset sky, so drove to the back of the car park and got out to take the photo.

Another day another dollar! This is part of the converted farm building I work in. I like the curvy land, and how the low sun casts light on these two units.

Wednesday 25th January.
As well as leaving work just as the sun is going down. I’m getting up in the morning just before it rises. Yesterday and today I noticed the colours out of the window whilst I was putting my face on and had to stop, mascara half complete, to run downstairs and out into the garden to see it better.

Sun rising.

My favourite view in the house, from our bedroom window. I love it when the sun illuminates the trees at the back, especially when there’s doom clouds behind them.

Sunshine and doom.

Phil went to the eye hospital today to do the health checks prior to cataract surgery in a couple of months. He’ll have to wear an eyepatch after I guess, so I might buy him a Pirate hat to cheer him up. When he got back we took a walk over to the little shopping bit of Pelaw, and I took some photos along the way, of course. This is Kirkwood Gardens, not sure why it’s called Gardens, it’s not very gardeny really. It’s the main road through the estate and we walk it to get to the metro station, which is behind me here. I’ll get another shot of it in spring when the trees are all glorious.

Sophie is back from Spain for a couple of weekends and today we went out with our cameras and did another Art Trail, which will appear on either the Fragglefilm blog or the Universe Blog or both at some point as I’ve used both digital and analogue cameras. And also took this..

En marche.

And so, that’s another week over. I really like the dreamy, soft feel of this Monti combination, my favourite so far. But onwards!…

  1. This is a great combination! I love the dreamy, retro feel and the little boost to the bright colours! Winnie is very regal in this photo; but my favourite is your workplace! (and the crows!) It is nice to see the days getting longer! That is a great Hipstamatic week! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»

  2. Love the softness of that technique, Fraggle.
    The most shocking thing about cataract surgery is realizing the thrill of seeing the world with clear vision. Phil will once again see how talented his wife is.
    Break a leg on your procedure, Phil.

  3. I have a thing for crows and sunsets, you nailed every one Fraggle. This series is my favorite so far. I really like the way you played with the light or it played with you, regardless, the images are extraordinary! Hugs, C
