Week 24. This Male Eider should not actually be where he is, but has got stuck at our local beach because he is in eclipse plumage and can't fly. He's been around for 3 weeks or so. It's taken a while to find him, but the other day he waddled up the beach to say hello. He should be in Yorkshire at least. DSC05105 copy.jpg

Week 25. Great Yarmouth hold a Wheels festival every year, and there were a lot of great cars around today, new and old, but this steals the show for me. Classic and beautiful Ford Thunderbird.

Is that a 1956 T-Bird Kev? I was thinking they didn't have "Portholes" in the removable Hardtop until '57 but the taillight housings don't appear to be a '57. Do you have a shot from the rear or any information about this vehicle?

No info, there was no one around, but I have some more shots. I'll put them up shortly.

The only shot I have that partly shows the rear light (not a shot I kept to process)

Well Kev, it is a '56. I would have lost money on that one. Here is more than you ever wanted to know about T-Birds (Thunderbirds). Now if this is not enough for you, take a look at Introducing the 1956 Ford Thunderbird. I know a lot of people that admired the early Thunderbirds, and that includes me and even my Wife who is not a car Buff. The closest I ever came to owning one was this '57 Ford that I bought shortly after getting out of the Army in December, 1963. Unfortunately, it was a Piece O'Crap!

Cheers. More photos in my new post. They are stunning cars and you never ever see one modified.

I noticed that this robin kept returning to the same perch just outside my patio doors, so I kept my camera at the ready and was soon rewarded. I used maximum aperture to throw the flowers right out of focus.

Nice image , sharp feather detail and an unusual but very complementary background Bokeh.....

Without intending to be critical of your composition, do you think converting the image to portrait with the Robin off to one side and aligned with the rule of thirds for body vertical and eye horizontal eyes likewise might add further value to the very impressive main element quality.......?
