October Squares: Seven of a Kind

Seven Of A Kind

Seven young Great Tits in a specially constructed nestbox at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

I spent a week looking at this photo on the contents page of the Radio Times without recognising it as one of mine.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Kind Squares Month and is my day 22 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

July Squares: Trees #27

Trees #27

The South Bank of the River Thames with a mist shrouded Houses of Parliament across the river in the background on a damp Sunday morning.

Photographed in London, England in the very early 1980s when I was a field tester for a new type of black and white film, Ilford XP1.

July Squares: Trees

Trees #11

Trees in snow. One of my earliest photos dating back to the mid 1970s. Photographed in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

Sometimes cropped to a panoramic format in the past I was a little surprised it worked as a square. Possibly my first photo to be printed and hung on people’s walls.

Throwback Thursday

The eggs have hatched

My Throwback Thursday post this week is returning to the nesting cycle of a pair of Eurasian Blue Tit I documented in 1987.

The eggs have hatched and both adults are busy feeding hungry young.
