Manual 365/48 Start, Middle and Now The End

Tonight is the last night of my holiday, back to the world of the working tomorrow and what joy that brings me… (I’m joking)

I’ve revisited some of the pictures taken over then last few weeks and I’m going to use them tonight.

See you all tomorrow.

Manual 365/40 Parcel Tape and Feathers (And Not A Lot Else) Maketh The Costume!

A few days ago when we first enquired with the locals into the Loulé Carnival a concerned fellow holiday maker sided up to my wife and muttered, “I wouldn’t bother Dear, I’ve been today and there was nothing there.” Now, I don’t know what Planet Grump this particular being came from but I can categorically say Loulé Carnival is absolutely outstanding. The people were friendly and the beer cheap. Unfortunately the weather was shite(ish), Brolly sellers were making a killing! But they still put on one hell of a spectacle and all of the head dresses running for cover when it rained was funny as! The floats and costumes, or nearly costumes, were out of this world!

Now, unfortunately, because I wanted to make sure I got as many shots off as possible I deviated from Manual mode to Aperture Priority Mode and buggered it right up, most of them are blurred because of movement, thinking now that I maybe should have used Shutter Priority and checked… Often! Lesson learned!

I did get a few I liked though, I’ll start with a Serenade and the feathers and end with the parcel tape.

For the record, Manual was used for the guys on the horse and trap.
