Nearly forgot to publish the last in the 52 week series?

It’s been an odd week photographically as I really haven’t wanted to photograph anything in case it removes subjects from the forthcoming 365 project I’m starting on New Years Day so I haven’t taken the volume of photographs I would normally take over Christmas.

This shot of one of our cats, Badger, came out quite nicely and will probably make an appearance on the Christmas Cards next year!


I was considering holding onto these as “emergency” subjects for my forthcoming second 365 project. If I’m honest I knew pretty early on this year that I had made a mistake stopping my daily photography once I had completed my 366 project at the end of last year. To be fair, there have not been that many days when I haven’t used my camera this year, but I have totally got out of the habit of updating my blogs every day (or week as it became this year).

So, these pheasant feathers and shot gun cartridges were going to be used next year, but I really fancied doing a little bit of light painting so, out they came and this is what I got.

 


Continuing the black and white theme, but due to equipment issues, not the long exposure work…which was irritating! This is a photograph of a new office building called the Leadenhall Building being built next to St Helen’s…somewhere I used to work in a past life!


I’m really enjoying black and white and long exposure photography at the moment. This shot combines the two and is of one of the old lighthouses at Dovercourt on the Essex coast.


A visit to Rowney Woods for a quick march round between heavy rain showers delivered the following shot. Ordinarily you look to have pretty much everything in focus in a landscape shot, but today I wanted all the attention to be on the gate and all the brambles surrounding it so deliberately dropped everything behind it out of focus.
