It’s raining today. I was supposed to be doing other things . However those were outside. Still after wondering what I should use my time on I found my daughters sandals on a shelf by the window. They made a great subject for my new camera’s macro function. This shot was taken handheld and at ISO1600
I’m very pleased with the result so I thought I’d share it with you dear reader.

Another shot from my early morning commute. Every now and again I see a black and white photo that looks like it could have been drawn by some artist. Just simple lines on paper. When I got home and saw this shot on a large display I got the that feeling that it had been drawn by my camera. The magic ends when I tell you that it is the remains of an old dock in the local river taken early one foggy morning. So just imagine I painted it instead.

I get up early most days, it’s one of the few advantages of being a boarder line insomniac. It meansI have plenty of time to cycle the 18 km’s to work before the local town is awake or have even thought about waking up.
I’m lucky in that at least nearly a half of my route takes me along the river path where there are lots of things I can record and the weather is never the same.
This Picture was taken at around 04.30 in the morning everything was totally quiet even the ducks were sleeping when I rolled to a stop by this old stone quay.
It was a foggy start that day so there was plenty of atmosphere I took this low shot which a mate said looked like the cover of some new Scandinavian Crime novel. Anyway just to show the difference I took a similar shot next day without fog and a different aperture setting.
