Day #357

Day #357Title: Coins Of The Realm
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I was really busy today, spending most of the time working. And the weather was pretty drab, so I didn’t even feel like popping out for a few minutes at lunchtime. However, I’ve been trying to think around this week’s 366 theme, Circles. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without chocolate money, now would it?

Day #278

Day #278Title: Triangulation
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed a walk just north of Blackmore this afternoon, and picked a load of wild blackberries to eat this evening. But sadly the weather was cloudy and very windy, so there weren’t any photographs worth showing from that trip. However, I noticed this rather nice shadow at home – good job I snapped it as an “insurance” shot, before I went out.

Day #218

Day #218Title: Contrasts
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
A now for something completely different… The contrast between this and yesterday’s shot struck me immediately. Today was grey, wet and miserable – the complete opposite of the vibrant sun we had 24 hours earlier. The sunflower was living, outdoors and colourful. These were silk, indoors and lit by the drab light of a north-facing window. I deliberately went for the high-key approach and overexposed the image – this is pretty much as it was straight out of the camera, apart from a slight crop. As this week’s theme is Red (which I’ve rather done to death on Day #88!), I was trying to emphasise the colour in the roses whilst bleaching out the net curtain behind.
