Nostalgia and wealth #life

Farley Park GREAT BRIDGE - nostalgia

Former British Prime Minister John Major said, “I want to see wealth cascading down the generations.” He meant family wealth like property and individual wealth. Wealth does cascade down the generations to a certain extent, but that is collective wealth in the form of historic buildings. Read the rest of this page »

Taking AIM #investments

Investing in the AIM market

I bought shares in another AIM company this week. As usual I invested half of my usual minimum amount and got a discounted dealing commission. It’s even more important on the AIM to limit your risk by investing less and diversely. Read the rest of this page »

Heritage of the Black Country. #photography

HERITAGE

There are many things that you can photograph, it doesn’t have to be pretty landscapes. I took this photo yesterday; the first bridge carries the railway and then there is an aqueduct. You can see the steep ramp we climbed to get to the top of the aqueduct to photograph the canal. Read the rest of this page »

Perceptions #life

perceptions

No one tells us how to think, but there are powerful influences that seem to guide, not only what we think, but our behaviour too. We know television advertising affects us, but how much does the programming affect us?  Are our perceptions of society and ourselves being manipulated? Read the rest of this page »

Time to sell? #investments

time to sell post

The FTSE 100 reached a new high again this week and is slowly moving towards 7000. With many shares doing well, is it a time to sell? Most investors look to buy low and sell high and some prices seem high now. Read the rest of this page »

Creating an image #photography

creating a stamp

You can have a little fun with photography. I took this photo of the Queen’s Head in Wednesbury in quite bright sunlight. I took a few shots and the landscape ‘scene’ setting did a good image. I got a slightly better image using aperture priority. I set the aperture at f/13 for this shot. Read the rest of this page »

Balance in life #life

balance

Everything in life seems to be a about balance and compromise. You can have too much of a good thing, obesity has become an epidemic in the western world. The can spend too much time alone and become lonely or spend too much time in the fresh air and get skin damage from the wind and the sun.  Read the rest of this page »

Focusing on the shot #photography

focusing

I took this photo last week. Notice how the goose is in focus, but the foreground and background are out of focus. I used a 50 – 300mm lens for this shot, but if you have a bridge camera, you just need to zoom in. Read the rest of this page »

Predators and prey #life

predators or prey

In the wild there are predators and prey. It’s Darwin’s survival of the fittest  as the animals  try to survive individually and collectively. The lion is part of  pride and has no feelings about the suffering of it’s prey as it rips through it’s flesh with it’s razor sharp teeth. The heart of the lion beats just like our own.

Pundits, power and panic #finance

Pundits, power and panic

It seems that traders on the stock market rely on the guidance of brokers and the pundits in newspapers, rather than doing their own due diligence before trading.  We all rely on others to analyse complex annual reports, we can’t read them all; but many pundits seem to amplify minor problems.

Settings on your camera #photography

Camera settings: narrow aperture

Last week I talked about pre-shoot settings. I did those settings before I took this shot. You can see the exif on bottom of the picture. It was bright sunlight, so I set the white balance for bright sunlight and set the aperture quite narrow for depth of field. The ISO was on auto and the camera increased it to 160. That is strange, I have no idea why it did that. Read the rest of this page »
