Photo a day - week 5

04th February 2013
February already ! Jings.
A bit of a mixed bag I think this week.
And I've realised there's another pitfall to doing a project like this, and that's rejecting a good photo. Some days (yeah they are quite rare lol) I'll get more than one shot I'd like to include... but can't. I suppose it gives me ideas of where to go should I have a dry day.
The very first one this week was like that, I got a nice abstract shot of bits of boats & lamp posts down the harbour after popping in to see Winifred, but the photo of the signs just has that bit more of a story to it I think.

"All Day Breakfast" but only between 8:30 - 5:30. That's what I see.
I took this then darted into Jack's for my monthly haircut. Apparently someone ran into our High St shop saying there were concerned customers in The Central that had just seen me take their photo - then run off.
What were they hiding ??? Eh ????

Ali said I should have taken this photo, then one of the poster to compare them. That's just weird.
It's because of too many of these that I have to starve now, and go out on the bike every other day.

An old strip of 35mm I found while looking for some empty archive sleeves for some new neggies.
A (cheap & tardy) prize for anyone that leaves a comment here , guessing correctly the person in the main shot.

Took this with a set of extension tubes stuck in between my 70-200mm lens and my Canon SLR - the trouble with cheap extension tubes is you have to shoot at full aperture, so the f2.8 created a very shallow depth of field. The photo here was taken off my monitor with the Fuji - before anyone says "your project promised to be all taken on the one camera !" Well it still is :) I just bent the rules for this one.

This cheeky chap was getting scraps from a fella in a van to the right, tap dancing all over the car's hood (the seagull , not the fella in the van - although that would have been a far better photo)

Q: Where do old golf clubs go to die ?
A: Sam Burns yard in Prestonpans.

This one is dedicated to my friend in Venice FL USA - Nancy, and her mum. Nancy was quite supportive - verging on nagging lol to do more people photography. A nice sunrise on a freezing cold day on Dunbar High Street.



Photo comment By Nancy: Thank you Grahame for dedicating the week 5 sunrise on High St. photo to my Mum and myself. Brought tears to my eyes since I have seen you evolve into such a master photographer. It did not verge on nagging, IT WAS! I always wanted to say I knew Grahame when he made his run for it as a professional photographer. Now I can say that! Am very proud of you! You do it so well!! Nancy in Venice FL USA
