An image from Speakers’ Corner in London.
If I ever got to speak to this guy, I think I’d get on with him
He has that sort of face!
A group of friends from our photography club went up to London this week where we spent an enjoyable evening taking pictures close to the River Thames. We started near Westminster Bridge and worked our way eastwards towards Embankment Station, where tired – but happy – we called it a day.
All of these were taken on the Olympus EM-1 and processed in LightRoom.
We visited Stanage Edge in the Peak District – an old quarry, apparently, now littered with discarded mill stones – someone’s intense labour just abandoned on the side of the fell. We never did find out why!
A lovely, remote spot – not to be missed if you are ever that way.
I’ve just spent several days in the Peak District with “friends” from our photography club ( Harlow Seniors Photography Group ) so you may see some more of my images from the trip over the coming days.
This is a thirteen second exposure of the weir at Cressbrook Mill in the Peak District, taken on the Olympus EM-1 with a Big Stopper filter.
Today was World Zombie Day in London. These are some of the shots I captured along the Embankment.
My thanks to all those who took the time to participate in this event. It made for a brilliantly colourful occassion!
All taken on the Olympus EM-1 with a 40-150 Pro lens.
When we were in Northumberland we visited Craster – famous for its kippers – and walked some of the cliffs around Cullernose Point.
We stopped and watched a group of people jumping from the rocks and cliffs, and we imagined that they were RNLI or HM Coastguard personnel training for their respective duties.
However, it turned out that they were a group of lads on a Stag Weekend! In that context I understand that jumping off cliffs is called ‘Tomb-stoning’! An apt name if it all goes wrong!
I took this shot on motor drive on the Olympus EM-1 with a 40-150mm Pro lens.
In the couple of seconds the ‘burst’ took, the camera captured around 15 images. I used half of them to create this shot of one of the lads jumping from the cliff into the water.
It was quite a blustery day : note the surf against the foot of the cliffs and the white tops of the waves.
I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have made that leap!
