The gritty Winter’s day led me to manipulate this photogrpah from its original colour, into Black + White. Glastonbury Tor is iconic. It stands proud above the Somerset landscape as a beacon to anyone who looks at the world differently. It is a mixture of myth, magnificence, nature and man.
This won’t be the last time I will photograph the Tor.
Reflections – seeing Bristol through the puddles that gather in strange places.
I walk past here each day on the way to work and have to step around this puddle. By stopping and re-evaluating I get to see Bristol through a different lens. As with a lot of in photogrpahy, it comes down to light. The Winter light seems to work really well here.
I’ve taken photos in Bristol before, like these, last year in September. A City provides a wealth of opportunities when you can’t get away, into the countryside.
Reflections – detail
Photographs taken in January/February 2018 with Google Pixel 2.
I took this photograph in Bradford-on-Avon Tithe Barn on 16 December 2017 and even though it was during the day, it was dark. Movement, coupled with lack of light produced the above image.
The Tithe barn backs onto the Kennett and Avon Canal and it was against the wall that runs around the barn. It was on the towpath side that the Floating Christmas Market was held (see my Tales from the Bilge blog post).
Less of a Mistake
The actual photo I was trying to get looked more like this
However, I think the following Black & White image captures the feel of the place on the day best. I love the sword-shaped window, hanging Damoclean against the far wall.
This graffiti from Bristol can be found at the bottom of Park Street, down the steps on the left hand side and just under the road bridge. They celebrate vinyl and my initials and I love the comic style 🙂
I love the colours swarming over the extractor outlets
I took this photograph at the side of the Kennet and Avon Canal, outside Bradford-On-Avon, in Wiltshire on 31 December 2017.
End of a Year – blog
This photograph is a Portrait version of a photograph I also took in Landscape format. I used the Landscape version, where I manipulated the colour, for the header to the Tales from the Bilgeblog.
The blog is about us buying a narrowboat and moving to liveaboard and all that entails. There’s a serenity on a canal that I’ve yet to find anywhere else. You are spiritually away from the world. While this photograph captures nature, the telephone lines show that you’re never physically far away from ‘civilisation’.
