This is from my most recent outing. One of my favorite subjects to photograph is flowers and the crocuses are out so I had to go and take some pictures. My normal method for photographing flowers is to get up close to them but since I haven’t been well recently kneeling and crouching are not something I want to do so I used a zoom lens and stood back. This turned out to be a good way of getting a different perspective and allowed compositions that i normally wouldn’t be able to get.
I normally document any places I visit or days out and put them up for family and friends to view. I have been persuaded to put some of them here as well so this first batch is from a couple of weeks ago when I had a short walk in Glasgow mostly photographing the architecture. The first one is a building turning itself into an abstract picture. The next two are reflections of the changes to Queen street railway station. The first picture is recent the other is from a few years ago. I will have to go back when the re-building is finished and take another one to match these.
I am slowly trying to catch up on old challenge photos in this case macro (more accurately close up since I don’t have a macro lens yet). I couldn’t think of anything to do for this so just grabbed some bits and pieces to make some mini sculptures. I have included a bonus photo of my assistant cleaning up after the shoot.
In my old post Always the same always different there are photos of the same statue at different times. I recently did another close up of the statue taken at night. The slight problem is that there are no lights and I was trying to find a black statue in the dark. Finally I spotted the plinth which is white. The photo makes it look like there is a bright light behind it but I really couldn’t see the statue. I have included the final edited version of the photo and an unedited one which gives a better idea of how dark it was. I should also just mention I was taking the photo hand held just to make it more difficult.
