Lincoln

Bank holiday day out to Lincoln. We change trains here a lot, but have never bothered to go and explore. So on Saturday, we did.

Walked the castle walls, but didn't bother going to the cathedral.

Photographed the ceiling of the Usher Gallery where photography was not allowed (apparently, oops).

Visited Fishzilla, the world's largest koi fish, in The Sir Joseph Banks Conservatory.

And finished the day at the pub.

50mm

Got an early birthday present from the BeardyMan today... a 50mm lens! It's been on my wishlist for aaaages (since January 2010, to be exact). So of course i went out and played with it for a while. Also, obligatory self-with-camera shot.

Baking

I've been wanting to try mint chocolate muffins for a while. I decided to make the muffins just chocolate and ice them with mint. As you can see, i suck at icing.

The other is chocolate orange that ended up with a mouth, so, googly eyes.

Book Seven.

It took me a while to get into this book, and i don’t know why. Perhaps because it doesn’t start out as outright odd or different like Banks’ previous books have.

My one-word opinion of it would be: “Okay.” This book is okay. The weakest effort i have read by Banks so far, but still far better than most.

Morning Stroll

One morning while staying at Carsington Water we took a walk. It was pretty.

The second photo is at the edge of the water, and is what we think used to be a road that went straight across, before they flooded the whole place to make the resivoir.

The warning signs for cyclists around Carsington Water made for much amusement.

Book Six.

There were numerous large concepts being dealt with throughout the book, but i chose not to read into them too deeply. Maybe i would have enjoyed the book and the conclusion more if i had, but i preferred to let myself enjoy the characters and their journeys without over analysing the metaphors. I’m sure this book would benefit from a re-read or two, but i doubt it will get it from me. I enjoyed the book, and that’s enough.
