Night Mode

Lockdown 2.0 and falling temperatures mean that there are fewer people outdoors especially at night. I’ve fallen into the habit of taking short walks almost every day to alleviate the boredom of sitting alone in a small room at home waiting for the time to pass.

One upside of this is that I’ve had more opportunities to try out Night Mode on the iPhone. Previously, I brought along a small tripod while taking photos of the Radcliffe Camera, but I was curious to see what the photos would look like if I handheld the iPhone, or minimally supported it, by leaning against a tree for example.

Here’s a photo I took earlier from Osney Bridge which crosses the River Thames in Oxford:

Not bad considering I only rested the iPhone on a bridge handrail while taking the picture. What I really want, however, is to be able to capture more stars in the night sky. Definitely going to put that in my Omnifocus list of ‘Things to Learn’.

The Holly Bush

As I was walking back to my house, I saw this pub looking all lonely and deserted. It reminds me of The Winchester Tavern in Shaun of the Dead, except this one is smaller, and there are no zombies around. Not yet, at least…
