This is a shot in an occasional series I call “Portraits @work. The wide angle portrait gives to my mind a sense of environment, which can be missing in a straight portrait.
I’ve wondered around my place of work and taken,I won’t call them candids, but pictures of people willing to get in front of the lens for me. Carrying around a nice looking Hasselblad adds a little to the fascination for them I think. I’ve had people in the past ask me to take a picture of them. They just fall in love with the camera.

I’ve been away from my blog for a long time. Time,work and other interests have eaten into the time I had. I have however posted once a week to the wonderful Monchromia blog. If you haven’t found it yet follow the link. There are many talented photographers there. It’s all run by the nicest man I’ve never met Joe.
My interests lie mostly in film photography but digital has its place. I shot mostly to convert to black and white as that is what I understand best. you’ll find splashes of colour here but not many.
My aim is at least to post once a week or more. so see out there…
A fishing boat waits patiently for a day out besides a deserted café
The harbour in winter is spookily devoid of people . You see the evidence of them just not the people themselves. I wanted to bring that emptiness into the photos I took.
Another shot I took while walking around the harbour in Hals. The light and dark tones were what first attracted me to this still life shot.
The contrast between the packing case and the rest of the scene makes the shot for me.
I think there is always something sad about a boat on land. They just don’t belong.
The nets are ready for a days fishing.
Goliath lies ready and waiting for its next job.
Another shot in the same vain from my recent trip to Denmark. You can see the other I have posted here.
