Despondent

I’ve been off the boil with my photography of late. As a kind of excuse the weather has been really hot and sunny, meaning that the only ideal times to shoot are sunset and sunrise, and when you work full time there’s not much of me that can be bothered to operate at those times as I’m in bed!

Anywhoo, got out with the camera today. kB’s parents have moved house so the old house is empty.

After the Rain – September 2nd

Day 2 of autumn saw a rainy start. The kind of drizzle that gets you really wet. I was unsure when to go out; the forecast said cloudy all day but that the sun might break through at sunset. I didn’t want to leave my photo so late on in the day (The forecast might be wrong after all!) so I waited for the rain to ease off and went out.
My original idea was to use the rain in my shots, however that didn’t work out due to the kind of rain that it was – no puddles had formed, and everything was a bit moist and a bit drippy.

Despite not intending to be in a shot, this is the shot I’ve ended up with today.

Tomorrow I’m having to drive my brother to the airport, so I’m hoping to get a shot on the way back.

The Descent & The Other Side

The Descent

This was the image that I thought wasn’t going to work out. It was rather difficult to know where to stand so that the camera focused on my head. I then had to move to get the motion whilst trying to end up with my head in the same spot so that it remained in focus.

I had two other shots to fall back on if it didn’t work, but then, when I looked at the on the PC and started to edit them I rather liked this one. The shot that I took that I thought would be “the one” was the one I liked the least.

Strange how these things work out!
