Ending the drought

Follow me on Social Media

It’s been about a year since I’ve posted anything but the neglect is over.  I hit a “writers block” as I have a few times before but this time around I struggled more than usual to find motivation. The current pandemic certainly didn’t help.

But moving on, autumn colours started and in a moment of madness I indulged in an expensive bout of retail therapy and treated myself to a new camera.

All this combined to re-motivate me, and I’m setting a target of getting out and shooting at least once a week come wind, rain, shine or Covid.  Also I have a new project starting, but I’ll keep that to myself for the time being and begin writing about it once I have gained some momentum.

Throughout this year so far, I haven’t totally stopped photography but it has been sparse and sporadic. Just the other night I had a look through my photo collection for 2020 and picked out my favourites. In this post I am sharing them. Please leave a comment at the foot of this page, letting me know what you think. Please tell me your favourite, you’ll be doing me a solid.

Thanks for viewing and take care.

    Stunning still life! Looks just like a painting. Captured the light in an ethereal manner

    Difficult to choose one Richie, gonna say the crumbling caps, ‘cos I enjoyed morning out before this lockdown, the colours of autumn – well because the glowing colours and the lone jogger because of the feeling and enjoy the symmetry.

      Thanks Thrity, I’m really pleased with “Lone jogger”. As I approached the scene I was walking quickly to try and capture three folks walking away from me, but they disappeared below the horizon before I could take the shot. I decided to wait to see what might happen and within a couple of minutes the jogger appeared. And it’s not every day you see a sky like that, and that mist just perfectly isolates the jogger. Well chuffed. 😉

    Beautiful work Richee. Trooping Crumble Caps is my fave. I love their sense of magnitude, the detail and colour contrast.
    Although some may suggest it’s because I am starting to crumble at the edges a bit, too.

      Thanks Mark, was tricky to capture for various technical reasons, so pleased it worked out well in the end and I could not have hoped for better light.

    Richard, hi! I always like your photographs and you are an amazing photographer! Some of your works remind me of classical paintings  though usually it is the opposite: paintings are compared with photographs:) Your photographs have artistic quality and tell a story and this is what I love the most. I will be looking for new stories to come!

    These are a great set Richee, as always. Still love ‘The Hacker at work’ and of the newer images, both the Crumble Caps and Sunshine Miss Molly are my favs.

      Thanks Liz, the light was very kind to me on Molly and Crumble caps, Hacker at work was fun to do playing with lighting and a remote trigger. xx
