“Depth”

Down among the depths, taken at the Sea life centre, Old Trafford, Manchester


Deep down on the sea bed

Eager crustaceans

Play cat and mouse with

The fishermen up above them, and

Hoping they avoid the fishermans traps as they

Scurry along the sandy sea bed

A Striped Tale…..or is that a Tail ?

What’s Black and white and Red all over ? a sunburnt Zebra! (sic)

When ever I think about an animal with Stripes, I always think about two particular animals….the tiger and the zebra

The tiger is Orange and Black (or is that black and orange ?) whilst the Zebra is Black and White (or is that white and black?). Both hide in the Undergrowth for protection using this camouflage

Now while I’ve only ever seen these two animals at the Zoo, there is a stripey animal who is quite happy to be living around you and I. I am referring to your tabby variety of pussy cat

Just remember to treat it right – or its ancestral character will come right out!

“Move the Camera”

Looking One Way….


And then the other

Its funny how a couple of steps, or a turn of the body can change the view of what you are capturing.

I was stood by the pontoon of the watersports centre on Salford Quays, when the Canada Geese came up the centenary walkway for their elevenses.

In they came one after the other, heading for a grassy spot by the pontoon where a water bailiff had generously left some bird food across it. They all ate like royalty, and then waddled back down the walkway to the watersports centre, where they hopped in and out of the canal basins

“Breaking the rule of thirds”

a thought from inky.

Cherry Blossom in Flower, Sitting by Metrolink Line


Just because there’s rules – doesn’t mean i have to follow them all the time

The Tree was Just asking to have its photo taken

even if it was sitting in the wrong spot

I couldn’t uproot it – so i just took the picture

So much could have gone wrong – a gust of wind, a moving tram, a busted ankle

but in the end – i got a result – a lovely pic of the Cherry Tree

Behind the scenes

1st February 2019

A couple of Shots from the Lens of my Nikon Camera

The First shot – taken at IWM Duxford, in Cambridgeshire, Taken from under the wing of a Lancaster Bomber.

The Second Shot….setup of experimental shots with BASIC Clicks, capturing Water Movement. This shot was a bit of a group effort, as each part of the shot from pouring the water to setting up the deflector took 1 person each in its creation

“Balance”

#Challenge30 #photography #balance

They say the economy’s stable…

tell that to the change on the corner of my bedside table

I took it out of the pocket of a pair of trousers i threw into the laundry and they landed on the table like this

The coinage will, of course be spent sometime soon – or stuck in the piggybank. But for now they sit on the corner of my unit

Balancing like acrobats at a circus.
