2017 Week 2

I normally ask permission of someone like this before taking a photo, unless I think that they aren’t aware; this chap wasn’t yet playing and he was aware – hence the rather baleful stare, perhaps.

I never tire of this scene.  I must have many instances, but this is the first time that I’ve adjusted the keystone distortion caused by a tilted camera.  I adjusted it in Phase One’s Capture One Pro (v10).

I admit that I was trying to catch a candid of this friend in the Pig and Falcon pub, in St Neots.  But I forgot that I had set my AF to Manual so he is out of focus . . .  my story now is that I was interested in the lists of beers in this excellent beer pub.  The current landlord has removed the kitchen and it is now a stills room where casks can be conditioned prior to tapping and pouring.  There are many beers here, something for everyone.

The moon was full this week.  I took this shot of Shuttleworth House (where is housed the Shuttleworth Collection of historic aircraft) just before the full moon.  I think that the term is “waxing gibbous”.

2017 – a year for images – week 1

This will be my year for images.  Too long have I slacked and lazed with unused cameras and lenses.  No more!
