Finally starting to feel better today! Hurray!
I think I’m going to try the same challenge I set myself last Easter holidays… Try to take a photo in a different location every day.
Day 1; Location 1: Local flood land.
On the way home I went to go and take some photos, I had a vague idea of what I was aiming for but what I had not expected was finding a skull in a field. So naturally it had to get used in a shot!
I also took it home (as you do) but I didn’t really want to touch it, so I carried it all the way back to the car park on the end of a stick hahahaha. Luckily most people would still be at work, so the land I was walking through (which can normally be quite busy with people jogging/cycling/walking dogs) was quite empty. There was a couple behind me (who totally must’ve seen I had a skull on a stick), and a couple who walked past me with their dog… The woman with the dog stared intently at the dog/floor, and the younger woman she was with gave me a nervous kind of half smile …:-P
Today it snowed. There wasn’t a snow day however 😦 but still, I always enjoy a spot of snow. Sensing that an opportunity would present itself at some point in the day for photography I took my camera to work with me and ended up stopping off at “the usual” on the way back from work, about 20 mins before sunset. This wasn’t the shot I was going for, especially since I have taken a shot like this before (except this one has added snow!) and I only took this one as a (half) joke to myself – grabbing the same shot in the same place at the same time of day but under different weather conditions. As tends to be the case with these of things I ended up liking this shot the best!
As I am prepared girl I check the weather forecast a lot. Sometimes it is right, sometimes it is not…
All week it has been saying it will be a nice day today, so I decided to take my camera to work so that if I left at the earliest possible opportunity I could go somewhere local and take sunset photos.
As the weather forecast looked for the morning I decided to get up early and go for a little walk. This was taken where I normally go to take photos when I can’t be bothered to travel too far but want to be outside, except this time I went a different route and found some nice potential spots for future photos (weather/lighting conditions weren’t right today).
For 2013, my photography resolutions are:
First photo for the new year 🙂
