Lunch Break

Ornamental Grass © Steven Willard

I remember sitting in my car eating a sandwich, watching the effect of the passing clouds on this clump of ornamental grass. With every cloud the light would change; with every slight adjustment of my head, the composition changed.

When my sandwich was gone I picked up the camera from the seat beside me and stepped out of the car, made perhaps a dozen exposures, then time to go. Lunch break was over, time to get back to work.

Before I actually get into this picture I would like to express my thanks to Joe. Joe owns this site. One day we’ll have a pint or two together. Just before I left for my annual holidays my old iMac finally gave up the ghost. I wrote and explained this to Joe – I prefer to do all my editing on a desktop. Joe took it all in his stride and found a very capable replacement for me while I haven’t been posting. So a big thank-you to Jane Laurie for filling in for me.
I’ll start with one of my favourite pictures from my holiday, a portrait of a very good mate taken on a very wet day at the Blue Bell Pub in York (It’s the UK’s smallest Pub).
Dave loves a “Pie and a Pint” as do I. We sat out of the rain enjoying ourselves for an hour or so. I took this    while sitting there and I  think it shows Dave’s fun loving nature.
