Work with my Music and life in general being busy have meant that I have hardly picked up my camera in the last 6 months…I am even now seriously thinking it is time to sell all the film cameras I have gathering dust…it has always been a hobby and never something I intended to try and develop (ahem) and like all things it can get a tad rusty if you don’t use it…I will keep a camera and it might be possible be able to upgrade if I get a decent amount for the film stock…we’ll see….One thing I have dabbled with a little is using my smartphone camera more…..here’s a selection of shots taken in the time I have not been using a dslr.
Just back this weekend past from Drum Camp, a festival of Rhythm. Unusually for me it was work of a Photographic kind that brought me there. My partner, Mrs Dear dances with a group called the Tarantellas and this was their inaugural performance.
I was given a backstage pass and access all areas including their workshops. I have over 300 shots.
Here are a few to whet the appetite.
Layers of detail on a temple
A couple of morning walks recently here in South Lanarkshire threw up some invitations to shoot.No Photoshop currently and I have noticed dust specks on these but hey ho…time to clean sensor methinks.Hope you enjoy anyway.
Just back from a few days in Cornwall where I witnessed some wonderful seas in wonderful light. Here are a few shots I have edited and added my own particular signature to.
Hope you enjoy these. Probably my last post for 2013.
Thank You for following my photo blog.
All the best for the coming year to you ALL wherever you may be.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing I wish you well at this turning of the wheel.
Longest Night is almost upon us and we can look forwards now to the Rebirth of the Sun.
A picture of a Tree I know well accompanied by Music to make your soul stir.
The last in the series. I have enjoyed this wee trawl through my photographic archives and to be fair I could do the execise again and post a different 50.There was never any order here. I like em all equally but this is the final shot in the series.
St Michael’s Mount, Penzance, Cornwall.
Straight out of the camera means that this is one of my all time favourite film shots. Nothing more pleasing than seeing a negative appear as a well exposed picture. This was shot on a Mamiya 645 Super with ND filters and Tmax 100 stock. As well as being one of my favourite vies I like the picture becasue it was one of my first attempts at long exposure. Hope you enjooy it too.
A recent shot taken at Wiston Lodge, my new home. I love the magical feel of this and I think the low level perspective adds to the mystique.
There be Faeries aboot here ;)
As off the cuff shots go this is the best I ever took.
It shows Mrs Scribbles in full flow, being the person only she can be.
A moment in time.
