tut tut tut I have been naughty, I apologise for my laziness when it comes to my original photography project, I have been shooting through out my times of absence and although I was distracted by the scavenger hunt from Nick and Shannon and then my ouch series but I think it’s high time for a bit of a catch up, the pictures were all taken in the correct weeks I’ve just not had the time or perhaps just not made the time to edit and post them here.

Week 25 the theme was love and as I’m in a rush and still feeling anti computer and lazy I’m just going to go with a cliché night shot of some roses.

Love

Week 26 the theme was water and again I’m going to stick with roses

Water

Week 27 the theme was red white and blue.

some people take patriotism a touch too far

Week 28 the theme was my home town which as I don’t live in what I consider to be my home town wasn’t easy so I’ve used my adopted home town of Croydon instead. As Croydon is a pretty grimy, dingy and depressing place I’ve tried to reflect that in my chosen editing style for this shot of Croydon’s iconic 50p building. It has been identified before as one of Britain’s biggest eye sores although I quite like it.

Week 29 the theme was Summer/Winter and as it has been such a crap summer so far I’m again going to share a picture of a dripping wet rose with a grey miserable sky as I’ve yet to get a pretty summers day captured on sensor.

global warming my arse, this is summer?

Thankfully the weather this week is a vast improvement but seeing as I’m still pretty down I’ve stuck with gritty black and white for week 30’s theme of The S-Curve

I promise I’ll do my best to get things back on track and my posts up to date moving forward.

Both this months project from Nick and Shannon and Week 31’s suggested post are “silhouette” so hopefully I’ll be able to combine them and bring you something new and exciting next week.

As I’m sure you can tell from the above pictures themselves I’ve been pretty disheartened and feeling sorry for myself over the last couple of weeks but the sun is shining today and my hand is feeling better every day so whilst I have a few more dark and dreary things that I want to share with you in the pipeline fingers crossed that this dreariness is all in the past now.

following on from my Zebu post for Nick and Shannon‘s scavenger hunt I got some positive feedback and request for other star sign doodles, the very first of which was for Aries from Shannon herself and then Capricorn from the Magical Miss Abra Alani and finally Virgo for the ever charming Zelmare.

I must confess that I had always assumed Capricorn and Aries were the same thing but Wikipedia has taught me otherwise in my extensive 20 second search this morning.

Virgo is going to be interesting too, as living in Saaaarf Laaandon I’ve not come across too many virgins.

I hope you like this one Shannon and thank you for encouraging me to doodle some more

I’m cheating again this photo of an elephants footprint was taken by my father but he asked me to share it will you guys for Nick and Shannon’s scavenger hunt. 

Sadly he’s neglected to give me any further info on where and when the picture was taken but we can fairly safely assume it was in Zimbabwe, probably Mana Pools and most likely taken with a Konica Minolta bridge camera.

8 down 10 to go.

I know, I know poor form from me with week’s 22 and 23 being published almost simultaneously I’m sorry I’ll try to keep them more evenly spaced in future.

After the relative nightmare of Week 22 I found this week easy to select as the theme was Straight Out of the Camera something my hatred of the droll of post processing approves of greatly. I’ve mentioned before that if I can’t make a picture work with under 30 seconds of post processing (read a quick crop and maybe exposure adjustment) then I don’t use it.

I know that this is laziness and that the greats all work on their images either in the darkroom or digital darkroom, but I’d far rather be out there shooting than fiddling around in front of the computer wondering if this filter or that filter adds more to the image in front of me.

So with no further waffle I present to you my artsy, rusty bicycle.

Straight out of the camera

As you can see I went for the shallow depth of field effect or bokeh created by using my 50mm lens wide open at f2, otherwise it is uncropped and untouched as it come out of my new to me Canon EOS10D.

I promise that over the next couple of days I will collate some of my other shots from the weekend away and share them here or you can alway pop over to my Google+ profile for all the latest.

I’ve also shared some long exposure shots with Nick Exposed and Seeing Spots, I cannot say for sure if Nick and Shannon will be featuring my shots this time as I was late submitting them but stay tuned to these pages and I’ll get them up here regardless.

Until Next time
