140 Reflections and Windows 10..



 140William in the city centre offers as many delicious reflection opportunities as it does food choices! The colourful structural ceiling installation here looks fab even on a dull cloudy day. Tomorrow is my last day to change over to Windows 10 for free. I'm a little nervous as I kind of like 'technical' things to stay familiar. So I was wondering before I actually do the deed :) have you changed over and if so were there any difficulties and are you glad you made the change? Very interested to hear what you have to say. Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  1. I've heard some not flattering things about Windows 10.

    This place is a visual treat for the photographer!

  2. These shots are fantastic. They are exactly the kind shots I love to take. There is so much texture and so many lines.
    I use a Mac at home but my work computer was switched to Windows 10 months ago and I only notice minor differences.

  3. Beautiful photos Grace.
    We have Windows 10 on our PCs at work, and (for a Microsoft product) I like it as much as I liked XP. As far as upgrading, back up all your files to an external drive and if you PC meets the system requirements (if it is originally W7 or W8.1 the Windows auto update to W10 should (as it anything is always possible) go quite easily as it is automatic. It takes a bit to get used to some of the new quirks and things, but then each new issue of any software system or program generally takes a bit of learning. (I run Linux on all my home PCs and wherever I can at work.)

  4. Love the shapes and compositions.
    Nicely captured.

  5. I've been using Windows10 for ages now & find it better than all the other versions that were out. Yes you get the odd pickup and most people who moan about having to change have not used it (my son for one) but I have had little problem. My wife upgraded her netbook which was rubbish on the windows 7 but has been superb since the chance to 10 and working better than it ever did. Don't worry about the upgrade it does it all itself. 🤓

  6. Pretty cool. I'm glad to have a Mac!

  7. I can't say enough good things about these photos, Grace! Fantastic buildings and structures; the colors are magnificent and your photos are a delight, so sharp and clean!

    Re Windows: I left Windows several years ago for Mac and would never go back. Mac is another world -one that actually works over and over again. I do have a Windows PC still using an old Windows OS but I don't use it often. It has a couple of programs that won't run on my Mac and that's the only reason I keep it around.

  9. These are fabulous shots, Grace!
    I'm on a Mac and even it is now no longer supported so you tell I don't like change! ;-)

  10. Awesome colours! I would love to see it in person, so many photo opps.
    I've been on W10 for the last 6 months and have to say that I haven't had any problems. When I had questions, I just googled and got my answer. I was skeptical at first but decided to do it. Glad I did, after all it's free. Good luck!

  11. We had minimum issues and perhaps three or more months ago, I am pleased we did.

  13. Love the photos such lovely colours shapes and reflections. I am an Apple user but I haven't upgraded when they keep telling me too for the same reason. I like things to stay the same. Its easier than learning new stuff even if it is supposed to be better. When stuff stops working then I'll think about it.

  14. I love the photos so graphic and artsy. Really cool. I've been using Windows 10 since last July with no problems. The switch must have been painless because I don't remember doing it. :-)

  18. Love the colours and reflections in these photo's.

    I'm sure you will get on with Windows 10 ... you hear good news about it and bad news. I'm not a tech wizard, but I haven't found it too bad, you just need to get used to something different ... and like you I'm never too keen on that either, but keep us posted on how you get on.

    All the best Jan

  19. This is one impressive building. I bet there are reflections and even shadows everywhere you walk. I bet it would be neat to just sit and look at all the reflections. genie

  20. Talk about windows those are fantastic shots!!! Windows 10 took over my computer without my permission, I still have a bit of trouble getting to grips with it! I Google & look at a book called 'Computer basics' by Michael Miller updated for Windows 10. I think it's inevitable that its here to stay so you may as well get it free (unless you go get a Mac!).

  21. First photo is a winner. I use Windows 10 since a few months but have tweaked it a bit so that it looks like some of the older versions of Windows.

  22. No I haven't changed, heard from some people they got very confused as everyhting changes into apps. They were not al all satisfied. It seems you don't have to change, you can still use to old one.

  23. I did not upgrade and nothing has changed :) bright colours and good geometries in these images! Arianna

  24. Great shots, Grace!
    I go with "never change a running system". Talked to colleagues, some say do, some say don´t. I don´t like the Windows10-style and my hardware was made for 7, so... I stay put :-)

  25. Yellow is my favorite color--so bright and cheerful!

    Windows 10 sucks.

  26. Lovely photos Grace.
    I've just changed last week, apart from sometimes not finding my old icons on the desktop, if I search for them they are there...
    Change is supposed to be good for the brain, so I have to exercise my brain a bit more!

  27. Hi Grace! Re your comment on Ocala: Ha ha! I thought surely you'd say something about my moribund posts! :)) I was going to say "Have a great Sunday," but I think you've already done that and are now having a happy Monday!

  30. Am still using Win7 on this pacific blue laptop I bought the DAY windows7 was available. Wrote my book, blogged on it, tweaked my photos pn it. I too kind of like 'technical' things to stay familiar. But I think I will obtain a new Dell soon and just get into Windows 10. You know, these new Operating Systems and computers are really supposed to be MUCH better! Courage and adventure mon ami! <3

  31. No Windows 10.
    Happy with Mac.
    I do like the way you composed the images.
    Quite artistic.
