Photo a day - Week 9

04th March 2013
Ah, 3 harbour shots this week, but like I said before, if the studio was based up a mountain etc etc... :)

A few more false dawns on spring this week, but some gorgeous morning sunshine, with freezing temperatures. If I wasn't so knackered just now, I'd be away along the east coast capturing some of these lovely sun-rises.

You get more points in photography for getting out your bed early - every man and his monkey (including me) does sunsets all the time - too easy.

So on with this weeks snapparoonies....





"when the boat comes in..." A cold day down the harbour the nice days like this always bring out folk that just watch the world go by.


Lots of these really bright mornings, but by jingo they've been cold too. Frost a plenty !


The harbour wall repairs are well under way, with all the sand and bits 'n bobs ready to be used up.


And here's a jolly young chap taking in the view. He was out taking photos too. "get off my train!!!!" I thought for a few seconds, then took his photo instead.
A huge expensive prize to the first person to email in with what film I was on about there.


Been reading (again) the ever excellent book by Ansel Adams "The Negative" and pondering even more than normal on how camera sensors compare to shooting film. The same drawbacks, the differences etc. A camera meter would look at this and try it's best to average it out. Making the bright section darker, and the darker section.... yip lighter. Ah... 18% mid grey.


A Sunday trip out with the Nikon 35mm , and the Fuji to keep us all company. Shot almost a whole roll of film in amongst the trees around the summer house.


And finished of my photographic week with a trip up Doon Hill. My good companion Martin and his faithful sturdy tripod - semi-posing for me.
