We plant them in rows, chaos will do the rest.
I am so sat here with “writers block” I have been for the last couple of months. I’ve taken all I’ve learnt in regards to photography and battered the buggery out of it but I have neglected all that I learnt from posting every day and delving into that dull grey matter that is my frontal cortex to come up with some bullshite to accompany a pretty (and, on the whole they were pretty) picture.
I am, and I’ll fully admit it, lazy. I can and do post to Facebook and get a couple of likes, I’ll post to Instagram and get a couple tenfold, (Twitter’s a sod but I’ll keep trying) but that’s just a fleeting image, forgotten tomorrow, forgotten in a minute.
The blog on the other hand, while not satisfying my social media cravings, does require some kind of thinking further than editing in Lightroom (Ok, I know there are those who would edit the funk out of this #removethetext) But I need to say that my journey is continuing…. And getting better….
And, to those who are here, to those that have been here, I thank you.
For Roland and his family
Well, I say hour, it was more like 30 seconds so this was the best I could do… And for the doubters among you… Here’s the file SOC…
I shoot RAW so I do need to edit in Lightroom but honestly, I’ve never seen light like this before. We do have an Ex hurricane on it’s way (hence me up Stourhead before the trees get stripped of all their leaves) and the weather was, to be honest, unseasonable due to the weather system dragging warm weather up from Spain. Tomorrow should be interesting! ;o)
What a monosyllabic arsehole, I only wanted a glimpse but, no, have a shed load of cloud!
The best thing is that I have a longer memory than the entity I’ve invented in the title so will, at some point, beat it and get the long awaited shot of the Milky Way…
I am not going to google that…
noun. 1. the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist, as in little mushroom dicks…
I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had in the back garden with a few balloons, some tepid water and a willing participant. That stories over on my other platforms. (just search focalthingy and you’ll find me)
Here, I wanted to deal with a few technical details. I love off camera flash (OCF) the effects you can get are subtle, effective and they just add to an image,
Take the shot above, If I’d had the flash mounted on the camera rather than behind, below and to the right of the subject there wouldn’t have been the shadow on the end of the pin, the hand would have been washed out and the flash reflection on the balloon would’ve been on the front bouncing straight back into the camera. there are still a couple areas of improvement, namely the highlights on each side of the balloon but I can live with that. But I just can help going back to the pin… Really happy with this image! ;o)
And a massive shout out to my son Reece for all his help…Good job Son, good job! xxx
There’s room for your Coke so enjoy the ride…
I had no idea when I took this shot it would have this effect it has but it did, it’s almost mechanical. It’s just a small independent cinema in Salisbury but it screams to me, take a seat, make yourself comfortable and listen to us…. Now, change your mind!
Down that route lies ruin. We know that, we need to remember that.
And, because I can’t stop thinking about it… My lunch tomorrow
To every lock there is a story and that’s given me an idea. I’ll keep you posted.
PS, if your locks here or if you have a lock somewhere else drop me a line and become part of another story, email@example.com
The perfect opportunity, I have a night shift, a great opportunity for long exposures aplenty, screw that Aperture right down, crack out the tripod and… Don’t notice the mucky lens and forget my intervalometer…Sometimes, I’m the worst photographer I know! #Illgetoverit
Tucked away in it’s nice little baggy away from harm?
No chance! If it’s going to bugger up then let it bugger up doing what it should be doing.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I’ve got to find a couple of bags of rice!
