Photo a day - Week 8

25th February 2013
This was a week of varying colours & brightness levels.
It's crazy how quick the days are flying in, and doing this project just brings that home. It seems that just as I'm getting into the week's flow - Monday appears and I'm doing another week's summary of photos.

I suppose that's what comes with always working 7 days a week - always. Maybe I'd better take a few days off this year - I know the girls would like that :)
It's been a busy week, with pre-wedding shoots kicked in good style, a few commercial product shots being done in the studio, a good batch of portraits including a young female racing driver, and a few trips out shooting black & white film.

So here's this weeks picks of what I have seen and felt on my travels with the Fuji...

At this time of year, the gannets start returning to The Bass Rock, and the kittiewakes to Dunbar Castle, there were a few birds mysteriously lying dead around the harbour areas. This big one cowped just off the battery.

As I mentioned in the shpiel above, been rolling into the pre-wedding shoots quite a lot just now - just before the full whirlwind of wedding season kicks in. On Wednesday I caught up with Alannah & Trevor at John Muir.

I've been scouting for some moody dramatic areas to shoot more black & white film, and came across this setting. I think with the right time of day & light, this wee scene will look great in mono. Any guesses as to where it is ?

This was a "walking down the street - and spotted my photo of the day" moment. The cars behind me were patient if not bemused as I ran out into the middle of the road mind.

Been around the harbour a lot the last few days - well if the studio was based up a mountain - I'd have lots of hill shots :)
Saturday was a weird day of overcast , then very bright - while still snowing lightly. This shot is almost spoiled by the blown out sky, but I wanted to show the bright sun beating down on everyone.

After Sunday's jobs, I was a couch potato until I suddenly remembered I'd not been for a walk with the Fuji for my photo of the day. Just made the last bits of (almost) daylight as the blue sky rushed over, but making this run down old goal post look quite eerie.

Monday was one of those very high/low tide days, so tried to show the blue sky reflecting off the water here, from a higher angle it's just brown sea, but from the low vantage - everything almost looks fake blue. If it wasn't for the brown harbour walls it would look all fakey cakey.
