I haven’t posted a Southport shot here in a while, so here goes! This one’s a minimal image with just marram, beach, sea and sky. I think this sort of shot is one of my all time favourites. I never tire of taking these photos, they are simple and easy to look at, the sort of images I’d like to hang on my wall.
We went to Liverpool for the day on Saturday, the place was heaving with visitors for the Battle of the Atlantic commemorations, even the Albert Dock was jam packed! Having our son and (brand new) daughter-in-law up for the weekend we took a trip on the ferry. I find it very hard to get unique shots from the ferry, but as we were coming back in to Pier Head the flag on the bow of the boat was blowing straight, so I composed to include the flag and Liverpool’s most iconic building.
Sandra and I took a weekend trip to the Cotswolds to visit family. We ended up in a wonderful big house in the village of Poulton, Gloucestershire. There wasn’t a lot to look at by the house, but we as we left for home we were pointed in the direction of Fairford, a beautiful little town just a few miles down the road. We didn’t stop long, but we did enjoy the wonderful church and the river walks and views.
It may not be the furthest flung destination but St. Annes Pier for a day trip was cold, but fun!
I’ve just put together a brand new web site where I hope to share photography hints, tips and tricks for folks who are looking to improve their skills. It’s called Day Trip Photo and the site is aimed primarily at those who have no training at all, and will include some advice basic principles as well as more advanced techniques. The idea is that it will help the casual photographer who takes his/her camera out on day trips with the family. Let me know what you think in the comments…
