The final entry for the August Photographer of the year round.
A bit of a makeshift shot as the arty ones I set up for all turned out rather badly. Was only as I sipped this contemplating abject failure I realised that the answer to the theme was evaporating before my very eyes.
Taken against the sun, exposed for the sky then dialled down to underexpose by 1 stop then dialled in -2 on the 430ex.
The bottle was hand held in my left hand while I adroitly operated the camera with my right. Quite pleased with th result but wasn’t what I wanted for the theme
Nothing to do with photography, but I did have a laugh when I saw this today. If this guy thinks this is porn, he really needs to get out more.
Check out some of the comments too – They’re even funnier than the rest of the article….

Taken at colchester zoo in the spring, the RAW file was re-visited a while ago and I realised that this photo was begging for a caption.
You have to bear in mind that I was working my notice whan this was edited, and had just taken a random day off sick with nothing special to do…..
Been a long time. Haven’t I used the nifty fifty since the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 arrived in the kit bag, so now making a conscious effort to use it more.
Didn’t really get out much further than the back garden so ended up taking another one of the dog. Pensive look from Daisy in this one which was hand held at f1.8 with a shutter speed of 1/30 at iso 1600
Lord knows how old this caravan is. Located on the older hidden side of Thorney Bay caravan park it sits, mostly empty, waiting for someone to come. With no mod cons whatsoever, and separated from the more modern monstrosities, tranquility takes on a new meaning.
As for the owners, I last saw them some years ago. Themselves older than this lovely van. Someone still cares for it though. Someone is still paying the ground rent.
Was out for a wander with the kids yesterday and for once I actually had the camera with me. When I saw this chair, forlornly abandoned on the Thames Estuary mudflats at Canvey Island, I couldn’t resist firing off a few frames. It was mid-afternoon and the sun was really harsh so the lighting was a bit challenging to say the least. When I went back, the tide was in, and the chair was hidden from view by the brackish, muddy waters.
Evocative, emotive, or just a boring shot of a broken chair and some unhealthy looking mud…….. Only you can decide how you view this.
