After a lovely breakfast at The Boat House, we went for a chilly damp walk around Gosport seafront in the fog. Portsmouth was barely visible across the narrow harbour and everything was dripping with fog – perfect for some moody shots!

It was gorgeous sunshine yesterday in Portsmouth and I enjoyed a short walk around Victoria Park in my lunch break. Spring is springing!
I am genuinely sad to see Gosport Queen go although obviously pleased she’s getting a new life on the Thames, she was always my favorite and I would love it when she stepped in for one of the newer ferries from time to time. I have travelled on her most of my life, we are almost the same age, and I love the quirky design and of course all the wood. Below a little tribute to Gosport Queen with some pictures I’ve taken recently.
Not today obviously, it’s far too foggy!
Went for a lovely (and much needed) mindful photowalk around Portsmouth Guildhall Square today, partly to record the incredible temporary entertainment venue that has sprung up (for Oktoberfest) and partly because it was such a beautiful day and I needed some sunshine.
Even Queen Victoria is enclosed in the tent!
So here is a mix of pictures from around the square today (click to see larger copies) – it certainly looks like it’s going to be an amazing weekend for the ticket holders.
I confess that I will look forward to having our lovely square back though!
The feature picture above is one of three iconic Portsmouth buildings, the Norrish Central Library, The Guildhall, and the Civic Offices.
I am very proud to share my pictures of the Action Stations building taken earlier this month. As I have already blogged, I learnt a great deal doing this assignment – and I am very pleased with the results.
I used my mindful practice of wandering around the building seeing what caught my eye. Back home I review the shots always asking “is this about the colour or the shape?” the latter are turned into monochrome, the former are tweaked to enhance the important features – but I seldom do much post-processing.
See my blog on the history of this wonderful building here >>
So here is a sample of the shots – I actually have 60 of them – too many for this blog!
