Harry Potter and the Lady of Leisure

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.

      Oh yes, my daughter informed me about the sad event in the Harry Pottter movie...I really don´t know if I will have the nerve to go see it:)

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

      And indeed, for somebody who is short-sighted, the photo is rather a success ! :))
