Guess what it’s doing in London? Again.
I’ve been experimenting with capturing water droplets and this is by no means as good as I wanted it. It probably took a hundred shots for me to get to this point. I tried various surfaces and amounts of water … Continue reading
Another wet weekend with the weather, so I’m resorting to posting last week’s shots. This is the last of the reflections I’m going to post and I think it’s my least favourite of the bunch I kept from the hundred … Continue reading
As a few of you asked, here’s another shot I took of the London Eye reflected in a puddle. I think I prefer this one, mainly because it’s not so easy to identify and there’s more “puddle and pavement” than … Continue reading
This is the second shot from the Selfridges window displays. This particular window was around the side entrance and tucked away where the staff go into the store and I’m glad I wandered past it. It had such an angelic … Continue reading
I’ve been a bit behind on my daily posts this week, but I’m trying to catch up now. On my trip back from taking the previous shot I happened to pass Selfridges and they have new window displays. Again, as … Continue reading
Thank you all for your comments on my previous Motion shots. At the moment it’s difficult for me to find the time to comment on other photoblogs (I always at least try to visit the sites of my commenters), so … Continue reading
This is the second and last camera blur image that I’m going to post. I went around the house again trying various subjects, this being a bunch of flowers. It all gets a bit ‘samey’ after a while.
Having been stuck for ideas this weekend and not having the opportunity to get out with the camera I decided to try this motion blur technique that John Washington has been playing around with. However, I get the feeling he … Continue reading
This was taken a few weeks ago when I was the passenger in a car. I really like experimenting with light like this, the possibilities are endless. Surprisingly though, it’s not easy to produce pleasing results every time. I think … Continue reading
If you commented on yesterday’s post, thank you for taking the time. It wasn’t a particularly interesting set of shots but I’m glad it got people talking about photographing strangers. I’m having one of my creative lulls at the moment … Continue reading
I’m running low on shots again so I had to delve into the archives. I think it’s this weather. Going outside with a camera just isn’t really appealing so I think I need to set myself some indoor projects. Anyway, … Continue reading
I’m still not sure about this one. Walking home this evening I passed the Nike Town store in Oxford Circus and these bright yellow windows and black figures looked so good with people walking past them. However there was so … Continue reading
I’m going out on a bit of a limb with this one. I suppose you could call it an abstract, but what I was aiming for was a heat haze look on a desert although it maybe a little overdone. … Continue reading
I suspect for most people this is going to fall squarely into either the “Love It!” or “Hate It!” category. It was taken at the Kew Gardens. Chihuly Exhibition. I was hoping to stay a little later when these glass … Continue reading
Whatever you do this time of year, enjoy it. I’m looking forward to 2006, I hope you are too. (Posts might be a bit sporadic next week. Obviously.)
This was taken in the turbine hall at the Tate Modern. It’s an installation called EMBANKMENT commissioned by Unilever and undertaken by Racheal Whiteread. This only a very small part of it, as you’ll see by tomorrow’s post.
This is the second image from the Frost Fair on Sunday. Again, it’s a shot of another inflatable archway. I used the auto white balance setting in post-processing and the sky turned this odd colour, but I kind of liked … Continue reading
This was taken at the Frost Fair on Bankside yesterday afternoon. I think there were a few London Photobloggers meeting up, but I went along with the J and the little boy. It was too cold for hanging about taking … Continue reading
9. He can be whoever you want him to be. 10. He is a black man. Make up your own 9 and 10. 9. He uses a PC but wants to switch to a Mac 10. But wonders how Aperture … Continue reading
I was a little stuck for an image today, so just started playing around with shots of magazine cover. I was trying to make it look as if it was jumping of the screen at you. Oh, and it is … Continue reading
Niqab. Update: Looks like I’m still in the running for The Urbs 2005 : World’s Best Urban Photoblog albeit second from last. You also have to scroll right down the page, which obviously doesn’t help.
I visited Colchester Zoo with some friends at the weekend and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I’m a little unsure of my feelings about zoos, but it was clean, well kept and all the animals looked very healthy … Continue reading
I’m going to see what the reaction to this shot is before I describe anything about it. Update: Owen was right, this was produced using a torch, with a cardboard tube taped over it to focus the light a little … Continue reading
