I must apologise for the lack of Blog Posts. This is a result of feeling under the weather and feeling lethargic. I guess this happens to everyone at some time.
Added to this I had two weeks holiday in Greece. I have posted a few shots of the trip on Flickr and will get round to making some posts here.
As you can see I haven’t been completely idle as I have updated the Blog. I had said previously that I wasn’t completely happy with the format as it didn’t show the images as large as I wanted and there was so much empty wasted space on the blog. Added to that I liked the black and white of the Blog, but over time fell out of love with so much black. I am a lot more comfortable with this style and as a result have also learned a lot more about changing the design. I will also be adding more content as time goes by.
I didn’t want to put up a post just to show the new design so thought I would incorporate shots that I hadn’t posted in the past. On looking through I was really pleased with the quality of the shots that I hadn’t used in the past. I think this happens to us all, as many people I have spoken to say they find the same. Whether it is the mood we are in when viewing the shots, or we’re looking for a certain subject or composition, they don’t hit the mark. Then when looking through on a different day, we realise there are a lot of shots that hit the mark.
All the shots above and also the one below were taken in Bath in April. It was a beautiful Spring day. What a difference to the weather here at the moment.
I noticed the piercings that the woman had, and also tattoos, but only when I was editing I realised that the tattoo on her upper arm is of Bath Abbey. Very appropriate, but an image you would have tattooed on your body?
The following shots were taken on Cardiff Bay in June. This was whilst the Extreme Sailing was on, so great opportunities for this guy, who was watching the racing when I got this shot.
With the following shot I had to take a step back as I was so close, so there is no cropping at all.
The following two shots were taken in front of The Senedd. There is so much opportunity for shots as so many people sit on the steps leading to the building.
You can see how good the weather was on this day too.
I thought what a great shot this is. I also have a shot of the guy turning around, and another of her turning round, but when they moved off they were alongside each other. We sometimes can’t get the exact shot we want, but hey, when you get one like this it really pleases.
Feel free to comment on how you find the layout of the Blog, and also of the preference between this and the last layout.
Off now to get another post done!
