Dalton Square

So I did get to Dalton Square in Lancaster (see yesterday's blog). These photos were taken yesterday and you can see the time from the Town Hall clock.

In the photo on the left you can see the balustrade that goes around the garden. It doesn't have a flat surface but you can modify angles with something as simple as a bean bag. You can always amend the photos on the computer to make sure they are horizontal. There really are a lot of places to rest a camera. The problem with this is that you are confined to using these places. With a tripod you can take a photo wherever you like. Both of these photos were taken by resting on the balustrade.

If I wanted the best possible photo then I would have used a tripod. I would have used an SLR. These were taken with a compact. There is always room for improvement but as I just wanted to show you Dalton Square on a blog then these photos are more than adequate. If I wanted to print a poster then they would not have been good enough.

Happy snapping.


  1. May I suggest a Beanpod for support?

    Cheers, Mark.

  2. Thankyou for the gratuitous advertising, Michael!

    I should have complimented your second shot...very pleasing.

    Cheers, Mark.
