51. Fascinated by lens

While shooting some property work I was approached by some drug users, concerned they’d been in my photos, I explained that my employers were trying to sell the property and that they’d be blurred out. Later they came back when I was shooting stills and this guy was interested in the wide angle lens. They weren’t threatening, just a bit feral.

DAY 85 H.M.S. Duncan

The 2014 NATO conference is being held in Cardiff and Newport and as part of the event NATO parked some nice warships in Cardiff Bay. Popped down yesterday to HMS Duncan, the last of a batch of 6. They’re 8000 tonne destroyers. I’ve been up close with the Type 23 before so it was a real shock to see the Type 45 up close, because they’re massive.

Day 34

More fog this morning, but only one shot I like, and it’ll take some work, so later in the day when the fog had lifted I got this one. Another slow news day I’m afraid, but it’s ok. Isn’t it?

Day 27

Lunchtime. Walked a different route. Found the Marquis of Bute peeping tom at the tower block in the centre of the city. I like the look. The compression caused by the extreme zoom. Worked in LightRoom 4 and Perfect Photo Suite 8.Marquis of Bute

 

Day 20

I had a good day today. Not work, work. And certainly not getting to work, work. My 0710 arriving at 0740. Nothing like half an hour standing on a freezing platform to put your back in spasm! Thanks once again, Arriva Trains, Wales.
Any; I went out at lunchtime. And got some nice images. Then after work, I explored around the east side of the Millennium Stadium and got some good stock images. However, my shot for day 20 was the last shot of the day. Walking back to the station, D300 in hand, when a seagull swooped down, nicked a chip of the floor and flew off. I waves the camera at it and fired. I got this. I like it, hope you like too,

Last shot of the day. A seagull came swooped down and stole a chip and I stole a shot.
