Shot a little while ago, the Bluebell doesn\’t hang around for long, so you gotta be quick. I mean, not quick like it\’s an insect or something, quick as in, well you got a couple of weeks to find them before the die.
It is nice to be able to shoot people sometimes and especially nice to shoot ones that don\’t mind being shot This image is called \’1\’ as it was the little fella\’s first birthday and christening. This was shot in the church using only natural light… I think he was pleased that someone was actually avoiding using flash. The Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 is made for this sort of thing. His twin (non-identical) to follow in a few days.
The Cook Strait lies between the North and South Islands of New Zealand. On its north side stands the city of Wellington; on the south side lie the Marlborough Sounds and Cloudy Bay. This was shot on the evening of the wedding we were attending – third day in NZ and a gorge sunset, couldn\’t ask for more than that.
Whilst I like most insects I have to admit that I am not a fan of GreenFly. They are a pest and caused me to buy some spray to rid my rose of them. Whilst doing this some fled and sought refuge in my arm hair. Thankfully it didn\’t hang around long as it rather struggled to walk.
This building fascinates me. Located in the centre of Folkestone, Kent, I see it every lunch as it is just behind the offices where I work. I have never seen anyone go in nor come out. Jesus may save, but here at least, he does it on the quiet.
More importrantly, this heralds a new era for this site as it will now contain photographs shot on film as well as digital. For my birthday I got a Holga. If you don\’t know what a Holga is, well Google it. It is bad… wicked even.
