There was a Crooked house

Just over the bridge from last weeks shot I found this old farmhouse which time, the wind and snow, had worked away at for many years. The whole place was leaning over.

Big Silver Moose

Probably the worlds biggest at over 10 mtr.’s.There is always an argument going on with the Canadians other who has the biggest one. I don’t really care but it makes a nice motif.

Early one misty morning

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

My wife and I went camping. Unfortunately/fortunately I was woken up very early because of a cock crowing in a nearby farmyard. I made myself a drink and looked down at the river. An early morning mist was rolling along it so I walked down to the bridge and took this, The lady on the bridge was someone from the campsite with the same idea.It’s a rare landscape shot for me but I like it. I have some more to share in the following weeks stay tuned.

Alice’s wedding II

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

I thought before moving on from my stint as wedding photographer I’d share this shot. Alice is just adjusting her gown. This shot just worked for me, and originally this was a much larger 28mm shot which I cropped heavily. The huge sensor on the Q2 gives you room for this. I’ve never been a student of the “Never crop a photo.” school It’s my photo, my story. I’ll crop the shot to fit my vision.

Alice

This is my niece by marriage Alice. She got married 3 weeks ago. I took my Q2M along and didn’t get in the way of the official photographer. But I bet my Black and whites were better…ps only joking

Rain dancing

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

This week has seen some very heavy rainfall. A local town near where I live received 82mm in 90 mins. That’s a Norwegian record.

Luckily for the first week of our 4 weeks holidays I’m at home. What to do in the rain? Have fun with my weather sealed camera, and getting to know my new photo editing software have been high on my list the past few days.

Take care.

Niklas

Meet Niklas, I’ve taken some shots of him before a fair while ago now. We got talking about photography in general and I couldn’t resist asking if I could take a picture of him with my new Q2M. I cropped it to remove the ear defenders he was wearing because they had lots of distracting text on them.I then printed it out at home and gave him a copy the next day.
It’s great in this digital age what a reaction you get when you present someone with a real picture not shown on a screen, or shared on some platform or other. Try going a little “Old school” and see for yourselves.

At an Exhibition

With lockdown easing here in Norway it was possible to attend an exhibition of treasures loaned to a local gallery by the closed National Gallery. There were some real Norwegian treasures to look at. A great day out.
