Delft - a few last pictures

1. Why square? Because Delft chose it.
2. Why the little Panasonic micro 4/3rds with only a pancake lens? Because it is small, not in the least intimidating, and easy to carry. Battery life sucks of course, but that's what spares are for. 
3. Why not all b&w - why are some in colour? I wish I had an answer - I wish I had one style of photography that says "Patrick Dodds took that picture". But I don't. 
4. Why the obsession with photography? I don't know - you'll have to ask Photography herself - she chose me.

Welcome to Mrs Lemon's: Sic transit gloria mundi.

A more considered selection of photographs, and more commercial work, can be found at http://patrickdoddsphotography.co.uk where you will also find my Flickr stream.

"Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute - I thought it had a ring to it :) Before I saw this (there is a picture of it somewhere on here taken many moons ago), the bolg (I mean "blog" of course, but today bolg sounds like a better description somehow), the bolg was known as Ten Years of Pictures, my target being when I set out to take a picture a day for 10 years; probably luckily for everyone concerned, I failed in this and instead I give you the melange that is Mrs Lemon's; I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - I think this has to do with a strange policy Google has of only keeping one copy of a photo and sharing it between Picassa (where I want to store nothing) and here; I'm not sure but I think any pictures on here have to be on Picassa which I'm not wild about but there you go - a free service so, for the time being, I'm not complaining. Not too much anyway.
