I think this shot is one of my fav’s from the day. A cold and frosty start and then the sun breaks through the trees just as I line up this shot of a VW jigsaw. It felt like magic.

BTW. All the selective colouring on this shot and the previous ones is done using Silver Efex pro 2 (Pre-Google).

If you like you can catch up with my other shots  from the car cemetery here:

No.It’s not where Ozzy and Sharon live. It was our next port of call on the Isle of Wight.
Osborne House is a former royal residence in East Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK. The house was built between 1845 and 1851 for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat.

The cliffs here are mostly crumbling sand of varying colours. I thought I’d try to bring this out in black and white. Let me know what you think.

I like the colour version just as much as the black and white. Although I mostly am a black and white kinda guy I thought I’d share this shop scan with you. I’ve just added the frame.

Martin Parr Moment

This shot reminds me a lot of Martin Parr and his work. I find using a wide angle to take shots of people is a lot of fun. You have to get in close and they think that you are shooting something else. Peoples perception of a camera is very 50 mm. In other words if you are not pointing directly at them it’s not me you are photographing.

Before the Storm (Black and White)

I couldn’t leave this shot alone. I wanted to see how it would look in black and white. I thought I’d post the result so you can judge for yourselves.
