how has another week passed by so quickly, Mrs BC and I are both still fending off colds and sniffles although the kids still seem to be managing to avoid any sort of disease so we should at least be grateful for that small mercy.

Photographically I’ve had a fun week playing with my 50mm f1.8 and the incredibly shallow depth of field that it’s capable of creating. My suggested theme was contrasting colours and I could have chosen any one of dozens of shots that fit in with that but the picture I have chosen amused me mainly because it makes no sense.

contrasting colours

Yes it is what it appears to be a 20 pence piece stuck to two partially sucked boiled sweets sitting on a fence post. I’d love to hear your guesses as to why as I’m clueless.

I also had a photo session with my friend Chuckles Les Paul and managed to get a couple of shots I liked.

how shallow can you go?

next time I’m going to up the ISO for these shots

and my final session of the week involved my dog Bunny Chow having a play session with Chuckles dog April, some of the shots look pretty aggressive but I assure you they were both very happy, if exhausted dogs at the end of it.

just Bunny

I can get your whole head in my mouth, in reality they held this pose for a fraction of a second and it was purely burst mode that ensured I captured it.

quick cuddle

and we’re off again

Next week’s theme is flowers so be sure to check in as well as popping over to see my father over at http://www.birdingzimbabwe.com

Until then

with a little less preamble here is part two of my share for my quotography project with Nick Exposed and Seeing Spots.

If you missed part one you can find it here.

My second quote was “every artist was first an amateur” which was initially said by Ralph Waldo Emerson an American Essayist who I know next to nothing about. I didn’t even bother doing any research as you will see from my below photo it wasn’t necessary, as my son The Monkey Boy comes home from nursery looking much like this every other day.

I hope that my thought processes are making sense to you.

Part three will follow shortly.

So here we go the first of at least three posts about the quotography project I’m taking part in with Nick Exposed and Seeing Spots 

I won’t go into great detail about the project as Nick and Shannon’s posts explain it in much greater detail but general idea is that all participants submitted three quotes and received three in return that they then needed to interpret and depict photographically.

My first quote was “it’s never just an ordinary day” which is the slogan for the Calgary Science School which is a publicly (well if your from Alberta) funded junior school with a different approach to education.

It’s never just an ordinary day

The first shot I took with this quote in mind is rather surreal, taken on a slow exposure of a guy walking across a bridge taken from his ankle height. I liked the way that the light changed as he moved across the shot and that something so simple could become extraordinary when viewed through my lens.

But because I’m indecisive I am also sharing a second more traditional shot just showing a little of natures majesty on a gloomy spring evening.

Hard to believe that scenes like this are available to us even in the heart of a thriving city like London.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little insight into my slightly odd creative thought processes.
