4 From Yesterday

And first up is yet another of our cat Freddie. She really is a beautiful subject, trouble is she craves attention so much it’s difficult to get far enough away to get a decent photo; as soon as I back away she’s after me straight away!

I guess I’m one of those opportunist photographers, I was just wandering around Reading town centre yesterday enjoying the hustle and bustle. Walking through the graveyard of the Minster of St. Mary the Virgin church I snook a quick shot off, looking down toward Bridge Street.

And to finish, when walking Maya in Wokefield Common in the late afternoon I grabbed a couple of photos of the sky and trees in silhouette.

Some hats

The rubbishy weather continued through most of last week and the nights are starting to draw in. Photo opportunities are now getting more and more harder to come by, with working full time and having a family. I’m hoping that the weather is kind now and behaves itself over the weekends through Autumn and Winter…a tall order I know.

Having said that the weather has been a bit rubbish, last Thursday was actually quite nice. Walking around Wokingham I spotted a stall on the market selling clothes, they had a stand of colourful woolly hats which made an interesting picture, just for fun. Again, taken on my phone and given the high dynamic range effect on Snapseed.

Not liking this rainy weather…

Well, it’s what us British do, right, complain about the weather? Apart from the fact that when Maya needs to go outside we have to stand and wait for her, then clean her feet so she doesn’t traipse mud & stuff all through the house, it means that photo opportunities are at a minimum.

In light of this, just the one pic to post up since Saturday, and this was taken at the weekend, yep…it’s another pylon 🙂

At some point I’ll be looking into how feasible it will be to get prints done of some pics, wonder if there’d be any interest….

Saturday 11th October 2014

So I got round to taking a few more photos today, funny how inspiration can lay dormant and be awoken at any time. Freddie was sat on the garden fence and I took a couple of quick snaps on my iPhone, a few minutes later I had the following result. Quite pleased with the perspective on this

After walking Maya around the woods in the late afternoon I took a quick detour along Hollybush Lane to one of my favourite places to see if there would be any decent photo opportunities; the rain had held off all day but we’d had cloud threatening to dump on us throughout. I parked up and fired off a few photos, this is one of them;

Beautiful autumn sunrise

I took this shot just before I set off for work on Friday morning. The bushes were full of beautiful orbs glistening in the light of the morning sun.

Webs

I really need to start taking my dslr out with me; not long after I’d set off for work this morning I was presented with some beautiful photo opportunities. I only had my phone with me so had to make the most of what I had.

It was only when I was messing about with this photo that I realised my shot had captured a web in the tree above me. This highlights for me one of the reasons I love HDR photography so much, enhancing details in dark or shadowed areas to expose something you may not have noticed before.
Have to say that this one is my favourite of the 2, looks more normal…

So…some new(ish) photos

My first blog entry! Kinda lost for words so I’ll just say that the photos that are already in the galleries span a year and are all posted on my Instagram account.

Whilst I’ve been building this website I’ve been snapping a few more pics and posting them up on Instagram, I thought I’d pop them down in here.
These are from August until the end of September 2014
