Assignment

#FFFC #Room #Camera #Press #Photo #Assignment

Sat upstairs in their hotel room since breakfast

They’re waiting for their target

In pursuit of a picture for the morning paper

Note : they’ve come prepared – camera’s armed and ready

Gloriously luxurious gown for her, suit tie and tails for him

Breathe

#Octpowrimo #Camera #Breathe #Acrostic

Salford, 24th October 2019

An acrostic of self help and photography!

Back on the corner of the quay

Really trying to grab the colours in that iconic building

Except – right at this moment – it’s not working for you

A time to step back, assess and relax

Take five , sit down and enjoy a drink of something frothy

Have something delightfully gooey and sweet and

Exhale – it’ll still be there when you get back

Family Photos

#Mum #Dad #Family

Captured in a moment of relative calm,

A happy occasion with four or five generations gathered round

Man of the moment sat slap bang in the centre, wondering what all the

Excitement is all about, too little to

Realise – he’s getting all the attention from the rest of the clan

As he’s the person they’ve all come to see!

Orbit

#Photography #Colour

The Orb rested on its spot

as in a moment, the image came into view

Images forming – like magic

colours red , green, yellow and blue

captured in a moment

by the little glass ball

Out in Space

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars

Mad River Canoe

Salford, 1st October 2019

Mad River Canoe on Ontario Basin, Salford Quays

Persons three, go off

venturing the mad waters

of Salfords dockland

Paddles cut movements

through deep canal water

making large ripples

Safety in numbers

all wearing their lifejackets

should their boat capsize

Patterns

#CFFC #Patterns

Zigzag Patterns , Mediacity , Salford

I like patterns

you can find them all around you,

whether its in nature , or in your home furnishings

in a mural or a picture

I Volunteer at Imperial War Museum North, in Manchester, and a key place you spot patterns are in the camouflaged objects around the exhibition space


Most camouflage patterns are inspired by Nature. I was lucky enough to capture a picture of this lizard while he was standing still – out in the distance his patterned skin would have blended into the tree, as if he was part of it….Great for hide and seek.


Mother nature’s rather good with patterns as well, together with jack frost. This pic was taken in the winter season, and although it seems random, there’s a definite structure and pattern to the way the crystals of frost have formed on the car roof.

Bumblebee Bokeh

Salford 27th February 2019

#Spring #Bumblebee #Photography

Bumblebee on a purple flower, taken with a bokeh lens, slightly out of focus so attention drawn to the bumblebee
The bumblebees are back!
bokeh shot of a bumblebee by inky

The message is out

It’s getting warmer out there

as stripy furry workers

head for the sticky sweet pollen

hidden in those colourful flowers

“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
