Daily Photo #140

And back to sunny B'ham for this one.


I was aiming for a more dreamlike and surreal type of shot in this instance. I think I captured it with a more hazy sky. The trees look a little off kilter, as if shot with infra red film.

Keeping with the international theme from yesterday -


A sunset in Morocco. Not getting very many of these in the UK right now, in fact not much sun at all. Period.

Last time we were in NYC this place was too busy for words.


I am looking forward to grapping a corn beef on rye there this summer but will have to get there early to beat the lunchtime crowds.

Daily Photo #135

I took this one in Manchester last year. I just liked the reflection and the look on Linda's face.


Adding a bit of soft focus certainly improved the image I think.

Not sure why I chose this image today? Possibly because it's Monday, work has been just one level higher in the hellish stakes and I wanted to concentrate on something more positive and attractive than all the assessments I had in front of me earlier.

I like experimenting and shooting using mirrors. This one in the Marriot was perfect.

Daily Photo #134

This was taken at Coney Island.


I really thought Coney was a fantastic place to go. Even though it was cold on the day we went, the sunlight was utterly amazing. It was quite a peculiar place, not tacky in a Blackpool resort kind of way, it was very restrained and quite surreal and anachronistic in parts where the modern world would meet that of decades gone by. The eateries catering for the tourist or unpretentious pallate. Possibly because it was out of season, the sand was quite clean and devoid of people. The fairground attractions like the Wonderwheel looked old but well maintained.
