Chatting

After I came out of the exhibition I was stood waiting for my wife when I eye fell on these two ladies having a chin-wag. I took a couple of shots and didn’t think any more about then until I got home. I took the shot at f/1.4 the picture takes on a magic quality in my eyes. But I’ll leave that to you to decide dear reader

This is another of my very early morning shots of the artwork which is to be found on my way to work.

This is one of two matching sculptures which stand on each side of the river. They emanate angelic sounds like a choir singing even at this early hour (04:30am) of the morning. In the fog it seems very alien.

Early morning is the time

I commute to work on my bike most mornings and I’m lucky that at least half of the distance is along the river which flows through the town.

When I say early this shot was taken at around 4:30am. It’s quiet and there is no one around, you can take your time to compose your shot and I’m not worried that someone will be off with my bike while I’m shooting.

This is an old stone quay I cycle past a lot and I just knew it would make a nice Monochrome shot. It was worth the early morning. You should try it too.

My daughter had her birthday this week and I got her to pose for me. It wasn’t that difficult she does a bit of part-time modelling. This wasn’t planned and prepared so it’s kind of hit and run, but I like this shot.

Just a bit of fun with an oversized jumper my wife is knitting for our daughter.
