A Day in Portsmouth

This was the first outing for my new camera. Perhaps I should apologise in advance to the city of Portsmouth, for I chose to visit when the sky was grey, before I had read the camera’s instruction manual, and when I was unable to enter and photograph the historic dockyard because we had taken our dog with us. Nevertheless, I tried to capture some pictures of Portsmouth old and new, beautiful and not-so-beautiful, tourist attractions and industry. One day I will return and make a better job of this! 🙂

    My home city, lost a lot of old buildings through WW2 and again in the 1960’s, poor old Portsmouth, but there is still Southsea, Not a bad job with a new camera and grey days never help. Just hope you enjoyed your visit 🙂

      thanks for the feedback Lynne, we could see Southsea in the distance and thought about walking there but then headed in a different direction instead. Next time I will go there as well as the historic dockyard! 🙂

    We were in Portsmouth last October and visited the historic dockyard. Being Yanks we had trouble finding the place and ended up parking about 3 miles away at a shopping center. We ran into a nice young man on a walk with his young son Oliver and they kindly walked us over – the old fools that we are. We actually had a lovely day but missed the harbor cruise by about 3 minutes. Nice to meet you!
