Among David Lloyd's albums



  • A seat in the sun.

    But not for long as the sun goes down. Sony NEX5 Helios 44M 58 / 2 I've decided to post some pictures again here for a while, but they will also be ipernity as well. www.ipernity.com/home/294337 Edit. These four pictures have just taken over 20 min…

  • Merrythought.

    The home of the Worlds best teddy bears, the Merrythought factory in Ironbridge. Sony NEX5 MIR 1B 37 / 2.8

  • No. 9 Cat.

    A very serene cat enjoying the sun. Sony NEX5 MIR 1B 30 / 2.8


  • Powering through the woods.

    The road is closed so I could stand in the middle and get this shot of the power lines through the woods. I like this Vivitar zoom, I used a great deal on my Pentax K10 but for some reason I haven't used it on the NEX. There's very little CA, and this is…

  • Craven Dunnill.

    The old Craven Dunnill Decorative Tile factory in Jackfield, where they still produce some of the finest tiles you could buy. Sony NEX5 Minolta MC.W. Rokkor SG 28 / 3.5

  • There's no reason to stop.

    because the shop is closed. Sony NEX5 Minolta MC.W Rokkor SG 28 / 3.5


  • GWR 1892

    The railway viaduct through Coalbrookdale was opened in 1864, so I think these strengthening rods were a later addition judging by the 1892 date on them. I love the way the design reflects the shape of railway wheels. Pentax K10d Soligor CD 70-210 / 3.5

  • The handle.

    I guess I've had this Canon FD 135 f3.5 for at least 25 years, it's been around but is in great shape, except for the oil on the blades that jammed the aperture wide open. So it hasn't been used for a very long time. But it rained today, so I took it apar…

  • Abbey window

    Looking through The Chapter House of Buildwas Abbey. Sony NEX5 Minolta Rokkor 35-70 / 3.5 Macro


  • Buildwas Abbey.

    The 12th Century Norman remains of Buildwas Abbey are among the finest surviving buildings of this period, The Abbey was altered or plundered very little during it's life and other that gradually becoming a ruin it remains as it was built. Sony NEX5 Mino…

  • Trois

    Why ? I have no idea. Sony NEX5 Minolta Rokkor 35-70 / 3.5

  • 12th Century Vaulting.

    One of the beautiful vaulted ceilings in the 12th Century ruins of Buildwas Abbey. Sony NEX5 Minolta Rokkor 35-70 / 3.5 Macro


  • Boy Riding A Swan

    The cast iron fountain in the Museum Of Iron at Coalbrookdale is a wonderful example of iron founding as art. This is a massive crop, unsharpened but adjusted for colours, from an Olympus OM 135 / 3.5 that I bought for £5 and had fungus on every element…

  • The railings.

    The Olympus Zuiko S 50mm f 1.4 is a joy to use, it's sharp and easily usable at 1.4, as these pictures show. You have got to nail the focus, but the results are always worth the effort. Sony NEX5 Olympus Zuiko S 50 / 1.4

  • Sculpture, in wood, in the wood.

    The Olympus Zuiko S 50mm f 1.4 is a joy to use, it's sharp and easily usable at 1.4, as these pictures show. You have got to nail the focus, but the results are always worth the effort. Sony NEX5 Olympus Zuiko S 50 / 1.4


  • Barn.

    I usually do this walk the other around and I've missed this nice little barn before. My timing was perfect as well. The late afternoon sun and the rain clouds made some nice light for a change so I got the graduated ND filters out. Sony NEX5 Minolta Rok…

  • Heavy metal family.

    It's art, at the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron. Sony NEX5 Minolta Rokkor MD 28 / 3.5

  • Rowing practice.

    The Ironbridge Rowing Club Ladies teams practicing under the Albert Edward Bridge that is carrying another huge load of wood chip biofuel to the power station. Apparently the woodchip is imported from America, and not burned with some coal mixed in. Son…
