Harry Potter and the Lady of Leisure

by Helen Hooker November. 26, 2010 4023 views

I've made the most of my day off today, shamelessly enjoying myself rather than writing my school reports. I started off with a trip into Chichester where I had a walk in the park, a spot of retail therapy, a very lunch and, finally, a trip to the cinema to see the latest Harry Potter film. (Incidentally it??s a fab film but do take some tissues ready for the sad bits!) It felt like I was bunking off school going to the cinema during the day, although it was nice not to be surrounded by my pupils as I was at the last HP film I saw!

I found today's photo in Priory Park in Chichester this morning. The sunshine lent a lovely warm glow, although unfortunately it had also melted the frost just enough for me to get muddy knees as I took this. One thing's for sure - the chap who was cleaning the nearby public toilets thought I was completely crazy kneeling down shooting the leaves. He actually said he thought I had my nose so near the ground because my sight was bad!!

Very nice. We photographers get a lot of funny looks in pursuit of our art, don't we? I must admit I feel less uncomfortable when I'm with someone else with a camera!

It's lovely. Gives me that very clear feeling of a cold frosty morning when the sun still feels nice and warm on your back.

Glad to see you making the most of your long-awaited week-end off! It does feel like a guilty pleasure to go to the cinema in the afternoon, but you chose a great film (and took a great photo too!)

What a lovely day off. All my favourite things- shopping eating out and a film.

What an excellent macro, I have heard the comments about "crazy" and "bad eyesight" many times as I have attempted the "interesting" shots....
