Love and Death (part one) revisited

At the weekend I went to the alley behind Gibson Gardens to see if the first picture was still surviving…

When I got there I found a very large (but unlocked) gate, and through it the whole alley had been cleaned up.  But the picture was still there, and someone had set out a garden chair in front of it so you could sit down and look straight into the picture!  I was thrilled!

blurry goodness

the night of the first cherry blossom – i have no real idea why…

the shots are all a few seconds, during which the wind shakes the trees. the camera’s handheld, so my movement’s recorded also.

Meanwhile, in the alley behind The Auld Shillelagh part 2 is long gone,   but in the alley behind Gibson Gardens part 1 is still going strong:

this is what happens when you stand under a streetlamp, set your white balance to auto, and massively over expose the photo
