This I took during a break for ice-cream while driving through the New Forest in the south of England. This is where Donkeys, Ponies and the like can roam free and blag treats from tourists. They are quite tame as can be seen here.
I wanted to find an unusual angle for the shot, so I crept up behind this car to take a shot just as someone reached out. I was pleased with the result.

…was the answer I got when I asked what was going on and by the look of it I wasn’t the only one wondering the same thing.

Famine

I was in Dublin a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to visit the famine memorial. It’s a series of statues depicting poor unfortunates wandering along the banks of the river Liffey looking for food or hope. I added a tint for a little more drama

First off, I don’t really know if the person I was sitting next to down the café was a courier or just out for a ride. Still I took this shot on the sly.

Those face’s

Last weekend I was with friends in Dublin. I took this when we were with a guide in Phoenix Park. All the people in this shot I know. But take a moment…I know what’s going on, you don’t there’s a story here…I’m not telling. I’ll just say it wasn’t staged. I just shot into the sun. When I got the shot onto the Mac at home it was one of those shots you overlook at first but this has grown on me for a week now. The lens flare is very pronounced but in this shot I thinks adds a certain something…and those face’s

This fine gentleman was a guide at Schwerin Castle in Germany. He didn’t guide us but was waiting to go on duty. I just happened to pass by while he stood there. Obviously used to tourists taking pictures.

Love Lock

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

This looks like a very simple everyday shot. The significance lies in where it was taken. It’s just a padlock on a bit of exposed rebar. This just happens to be the Berlin Wall. Let’s not build walls anymore.
