Been a While

Architecture, Black and White, England, Historic, London, Monochrome

As is usual for me I get away from blogging about my photography and photography altogether. I have not been shooting much this year. I have shot some but not much and nothing that has thrilled me enough for sharing. Maybe I can get back into this game.

I got a new (used) lens at the weekend to take pictures at a Christening. It preformed very well at the Christening and I am now thinking of testing it out on the streets.

Thought I would just do a little post here today with a couple of shots from September 2016. Taken in London.

Caught my Eye

Art, Black and White, England, Graffiti, Monochrome, Photography, Street Photography, Windsor

As I walk around with my camera there are often things that just pop out at me and catches my eye. These shots were taken yesterday as I walked around Windsor. I kept these in black and white as I shot them in the monochrome setting of my camera.

A Few from Today

Animals, Black and White, England, Monochrome, Photography, Pigeons, Street Photography, Windsor

Windsor was super busy today. So many interesting people and scenes to take photos of that I could hardly keep up with it all. But fun it was.

I also learned something today. I set my camera to Monochrome, black and white. It was interesting to look at the back of the camera and see the results in black and white. I did wonder though if when I loaded them onto the computer if they would remain in black and white. You see I shoot in RAW, I have always shot RAW as I like to process my own photos. Lo and behold they did convert to colour so I had to do my usual black and white processing.

I also loaded a roll of black and white Ilford film into my F80 and took a few shots with that but I did not use the whole roll yet so those will have to wait until I finish the roll.

Here are just a few that I quickly picked out from todays outing.

He was looking at me until I put my camera up to take the shot then he looked down. Can’t win them all.

Pigeons are a nuisance but they do make for a great photo
