A series showing some of the places and scenes that I encounter daily
Each image will link to Flickr, should you wish to see larger versions, exif info etc.
The following images were all shot with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and XF35 Prime
Keep Your Distance
Today’s cover shot. Strangers forced into a confined space always seem to exhibit interesting body language…
Mindless vandalism is no artistic endeavour, but there’s a romanticism about an anonymous artist screaming for attention…
Reflections are a great way to observe the observer
A journey through symmetry
All the following images were shot with the Fujifilm X-T1 and a combination of the XF35/60 Primes.
It hasn’t really stopped raining here for quite a while, so I’ve spent a lot of time staring into puddles!
Don’t Look Down!
Today’s cover shot. Cats – so unfazed by mortal danger, it’s quite a drop from there…
I have a ‘bit’ of a thing about shooting washing lines… Click here to see more!
No Time to Hibernate
I was rather surprised to see this lizard, what with it being January! I guess the cold was keeping it docile enough to point a camera at (usually they dart off at the first hint of being seen)
Sun and Light
I positioned the setting sun behind the streetlamp.
The juxtaposition of the shapes and colours appealed to my eye
A Workman’s Hat
A lot of local produce is grown here, and the workers feel perfectly safe to leave their work clothes hanging up in open door huts, ready for tomorrow’s toil
Top Tip: Find a group of pigeons, sneak up on them, set up the shot, then yell BANG, loudly!
From the same few moments as the cover shot, it’s a shame I missed focus on the eyes, but the shot still works IMO, and tack sharp sharpness isn’t everything
