I was in Italy for the past two weeks and had a chance to visit the Spanish Steps in Rome after sunset. It was still quite crowded on a beautiful spring evening. I had a 14-35mm lens on my camera and shot this at 20mm. Camera settings were 1/50s, f4.5, ISO 1600. The picture had some noise in it so I used Topaz DeNoise and then edited it in Lightroom. My editing focus was some lightening of the people in the foreground, and straightening the vertical lines and horizon.

I just returned from celebrating my daughter’s 40th birthday in London. (Coincided with the coronation. I got lots of photos of the people staking out their spots in tents along the Mall the day before the big event.) We always spend a couple of nights at the seaside when I’m there and this time we chose Deal, Kent, a pretty town where the houses are painted in various pastel shades.

This is taken from the pier in the early evening. ISO 400, 50 mm, f/11, 1/320

Tributes for the coronation were everywhere, from British flag buntings across the streets to creative displays in the windows of shops and houses. I was lining up a shot from the beach, fully zoomed, of this elaborate crocheted crown on a tasselled pillow when the postman showed up to collect the mail. This provided more interest, not to mention scale, as the post boxes come in various sizes – this one looks much smaller in the photo with no person in it.

More practice with my long lens at Inglewood bird sanctuary. I don’t know what kind of bird this is but he looked so regal standing guard on the beach. Shot with my 100-400 lens with 1.4 x extender.

We are shocked by the robins who decided to build a nest less than 2m from the corner of our home.
Not much to say except the exposure problem was extreme with direct sunlight on some of the nearby branches and the nest being quite dark due to an overhanging set of branches about 15 cm above the bird.
Today’s air quality being at 10 or extremely poor I fell for all forms of life that use lungs.
ISO 2500, ss 1/50 s, f 25. Hand held over my head.
