L I N E S – Light Stalking in Northern Cities

Time for one of those posts where I just dump a few photographs I’ve taken whilst roaming around. In between jobs, out running errands, walking the dog, on route to/from a commission, just popping around the corner to grab a coffee, the camera is always with me just to document the world I see. Sometimes I have mini projects in mind, other times I just see what the world serves me up (although generally I seem to find themes unifying what I create).

Day 174 / 365

Just saw the potential for a sneaky 365 during some down time on todays shoot. The power and fun of an iPhone, just playing around with compositions, lines, diagonals, thirds. I almost forgot why I was there in the first place . . . . . . . . . .

Alternate composition; Four Steps to the Right.

Four Steps to the Right

Somewhat simpler and in many respects I prefer it, however it’s good to break ones style now and again. I guess the second shot is the one I’d expect myself to shoot which is why I chose the diagonal one for the 365, mix things up a little.
We even managed to somehow body swerve all of the really really black rain clouds to get the real shooting finished for lunch. It has been raining pretty much since we called a wrap. Phew!

Day 119 / 365

Another four day weekend thanks to a certain Royal Wedding (which I have to admit was pretty special) and May Day on Monday. Due to this postings may be late over the period.

Todays shot is kind of a study of light & lines, hence the name. It’s fun looking for the beauty in the mundane.

Day 104 / 365

Shadow Week

Quiet day by myself in the office today, getting lots of catching up done. Feeling pretty mellow too after the Beth Orton gig last night.
Oh almost forgot, If you’re enjoying the lines and shadows this week and wonder where some of the inspiration comes from check out Ray K. Metzker and you’ll see what I’ve been looking at lately. Well actually this is what I’ve been looking at.
