Love scars

Photo of the Day: 25 – Love Scars

I’ve seen trees with one or two carvings scratched into their trunks before, but nothing quite like this one. It’s literally covered in love scars and I don’t really know why this particular tree has been singled out for so...

Laugh Lasts

Photo of the Day: 24 – The Laugh Lasts

An image cut from the same cloth as PotD#22, a detail of the remains of a poster on a wall, but this time without the extreme colour or the B&W elements. I love the textured tone of the wall, the lo-fi print quality of the poster, the...

Photo of the Day: 23 – Natural Curves...

This is another photo from my enjoyable and rewarding wanderings round Mendoza in Argentina. As I was walking through the park, I noticed the organic curves of the trees’ foliage acting as an interesting counterpoint to the rigid lines of...

Eye on the wall

Photo of the Day: 22 – Eye on the Wall

There are times when you are walking around with a camera and you just can’t seem to find something worthwhile to shoot. Over time, I’ve come to realise that the problem is more to do with my mind’s eye not having clicked into...

Jim Morrison

Photo of the Day: 21 – Jim Morrison...

If you’re going to add a little something special to your store front when the shutters are down, then a portrait of the great Jim Morrison seems like an excellent choice. The Doors where a very important band to me in my mind-forming mid...

Flower shower

Photo of the Day: 20 – Flower Shower

No, it isn’t raining, it’s just the sprinkler system coming on unexpectedly to provide a much needed flower shower, adding another element to the series of images I was gathering with the Sony FE 90mm Macro lens. The gardeners...

Pink petals

Photo of the Day: 19 – Pink Petals

Continuing on from where I left off with the previous PotD and how much I was enjoying using the Sony FE 90mm Macro lens, here’s another offering of a close-up of a rose, this time focusing in on some lovely pink petals and their...

Flower detail

Photo of the Day: 18 – Flower Detail...

It’s time to talk a little about the Sony FE 90mm Macro G OSS lens. Macro work is not something I do much of in my regular work environment so I was keen to take it out in the field and put it through its paces. With this in mind, I spent...

Bark Art

Photo of the Day: 17 – Bark Art

I made a pretentious statement to someone the other day along the lines that photography is finding the balance between colour and light. On a technical level, it is true that the information in a digital file contains a numerical value of...

Bougainvillea shoot

Photo of the Day: 16 – The...

I took this shot walking around the streets of Mendoza in Argentina. I like it this picture a lot. I only took two frames and they are both very similar in their framing, because that is the way that the idea behind the picture is best captured...
