Colour

One of those days where I haven’t got the camera out…until the last minute…these boxes caught my eye in the wife’s work room – her “daylight” bulb works well!


An abstract shot of Red Green Blue…

From Wikipedia

The RGB colour model is an additive colour model in which red, green and blue light are added together in various ways to reproduce a broad array of colours. The name of the model comes from the initials of the three additive primary colours, red, green and blue.

The main purpose of the RGB colour model is for the sensing, representation and display of images in electronic systems, such as televisions and computers, though it has also been used in conventional photography. Before the electronic age, the RGB colour model already had a solid theory behind it, based in human perception of colours.

There are plenty of clues around, but do you know what I photographed to get this image?


This was all a bit of a dogs dinner…but I ended up quite liking this abstract shot of the view through the car window in Tesco’s car park!


I’m 50 this year…my Mum still buys me a tube of Smarties for Christmas, as she has since I was a child…and I’d complain bitterly if she didn’t 😉


There seems to be a Marmite fixation going on…

It took me forever (due to my inability to read instructions) to work out how to get the edited images from the phone into my desktop version of Lightroom…but managed in the end (and still haven’t read the instructions…result 😉 )


I have no idea how this leaf managed to get itself stuck to the trunk of this tree, but I am grateful that it did as you don’t often see a leaf that is orange, yellow and green all at once.


A quick stroll around Rowney Woods this morning before the weather closed in.

This entrance into the woods doesn’t actually exist but I took one picture of this area as we arrived and then a second picture (including the people) as we left. I then combined the two in photoshop and because of the change in light it looks like the people are entering the woods by a (non-existent) path. You can see the two images used below.

The longest day, or as photographers like to think, the shortest night, was on or around the 20th and 21st of June this year. There’s quite a gathering of photographers to be found roaming the streets of London on this night doing the sunset to sunrise over nighter and I joined the throngs this year.

Horrible weather found me mooching around the workshop for a subject. It really was the colours that caught my eye and the repetition…I have no idea what the plugs are used for (other than it will be electrical…possibly)
