Photo a day - week 2

14th January 2013
The hardest part of doing this exercise so far - is remembering to do it.
There have been a few days - especially in the 2nd week here, when I've been so busy I've cracked on with the proper work , and have been walking home when I've remembered I've forgotten to do my photo !

That's why there's some odd things in there. I must take photos on all journeys to give me a better range :)

So still the same format... same camera with the same fixed lens and no cropping etc.
I might spend a week doing a theme - like "total strangers" .... might ad an extra twist to it.

So here's what I've seen this last week...

The Maggie, I come here quite a lot and stare at the path along the side... wondering if I should attempt to get in there for a set of photos... not been up there since about 1984. Looks very dangerous though - so don't do it kids !

Took this when out doing my infra-red shots. A nice wee tuft of grass coming alive as the tide pulls back. At medium & high tide this whole area is under water.
It's shots like this that show how nice & colourful the Fuji compacts can make the jpegs look . A nice late afternoon sun helped mind.

So the Heart of Dunbar crew are having their exhibition soon, Billy put together this great photo collage from a brain storm from the wash of Belhaven Bridge photos . If you don't know what I'm talking about - get onto Facebook and check out Heart of Dunbar and Bridge to Nowhere Exhibition. Sadly this poster will be replaced next week with our Valentines promotion photos ;)

A rare meal out for me and Ali. A few un-controlled kids screaming the pub down almost spoiled it, but they were away not long after we started eating our main meal.
It's nice to see families out together, but to me there seems to be less control of kids nowadays... ah well.. must be getting old lol

A lesson in extreme shallow depth of field, close focusing and f2....

The old slip into the harbour... makes you think you can run down it and run right across the water... shame it was a cold gloomy day though.

I did a pet project for the old Dunbar website (I see the new site is still "coming soon") of High Street closes. There's some great old sites to be seen by navigating up and down the High Streets narrow vennels - just make sure you watch where you place your feet as some dog owners just don't care where their pets lay their "eggs".
