We went for a walk a couple of days ago along the beach, and I took a photo of a lighthouse that was on some craggy rocks. The rocks were split so far apart that we couldn’t reach the lighthouse for a proper look, but apparently it was built in 1911 and still works as a proper guiding light for ships (or warning, depending on your point of view on a stormy sea!)
I made it black and white for effect – I love that sky!
The sun streamed in through the window for a brief moment, casting a pretty shadow of a small vase of flowers, on the wall. I love those shapes…..
The I turned it into a negative, just to see what it looked like.
Funny the things a person does while waiting for the kettle to boil for tea 😀
So today I went for a 2 hour walk in the pouring rain. It wasn’t raining when I left the house, but there you have it. Its Scotland. We rain. Its exhilarating….
I tried the monochrome setting on my camera today….I’m not sure if I like it that much to be honest. Maybe it was the lighting, or the subject matter, but they came out kind of “meh”. I’m working my way up to street photography, but I’m not brave enough yet for people shots. Its taking me all my time to do this. (People get very suspicious when you bring out a camera)
(This last one is a witches cauldron on a stone wall. There are many witches here y’know, oh yes) Anyway, I tried to ignore the colour and concentrate on texture, but it was pouring with rain, and fiddly so I’m going to try again this week. When its dry…..and sunny? Hmm.
