Photo Challenges

Salford 13th March 2018


Over the last few days i’ve been taking part in a photographic challenge

#challenge30 involved taking pictures with my trusty second hand Nikon DSLR camera on thirty subjects – each with their own unique title.

i particularly enjoyed taking photos from an abstract view, changing simple items into something else.

The pictures have been stored on a gallery on flickr’s website and you’ll find them here

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done.”

I’ve heard it said , that camera’s capture a moment.

Whether it be analogue or Digital – the Image is kept on media

but in order to catch that moment…you have to be there

The film has to be fresh – or card clean – so the pictures can be captured on them…the timer has to be set just so and of course the lens settings have to be the way you want them.

Then, there’s location – do you really want that tree sticking out of your Uncle’s head ?  Reflections are everywhere and sunspots dont half look daft on a supposed “Perfect Shot”

You can spend hours waiting…while you wait for the shot to arrive.

And then – regardless of conditions, times, subject –

Its time to take the shot – and light hits film or sensor.

And that moment in history is captured.
