Black and White Flowers

Black And White Flowers

Not a lot to say about this image. I’ve been looking at Michael Kenna’s photos a lot and his use of black and white has influenced my decision to go colourless here. I can’t say there are any other similarities between our photography. His choice of using medium format cameras has inspired me to pick up my Rolleiflex again though, which I’m going to use when I head out tomorrow morning. I had intended to go out this morning as it was supposed to be a misty one, but after a week at work I thought a Saturday morning lie-in was more important. This was the wrong decision, I’m sure you’ll agree.

This is the one of my latest photos and the first to appear in the new ‘Featured¬† Post’ section of my blog, a place I will use to showcase my most recent image. I’m in the process of streamlining my blog, including starting a new policy of ‘one post, one picture’, so it may be a bit messy while I re-edit some of my older posts.


Back In The Frame

Last weekend I decided to try something out of my comfort zone and attempted some street photography. The results weren’t great though, but I may I post some of the better photos on here when I’m in a more self-abasing mood. Today is not that day though, so it’s back to tightly framed macro shots for now. This is a reent photo I have taken using only natural light. You can see a black and white version of this shot, along with the other two photos in the series, on my Flickr.


Today’s The Day

It’s been some time since I last posted on here and instead trying to make up for lost time with one marathon post I’m going to keep it simple with a one image post. I have taken inspiration from the Daily Post‘s Weekly Photo Challenge, the subject of which this week is ‘today.’ Given my previous form when it comes to posting I can’t really see me making a post a day, so I’m not tagging or titling this post as such. So here is the image.



This was my breakfast this morning. Not much, I know, but I wanted to get out and take some photos before the weather turned bad, so I didn’t have time to go to the shop. I’ve made good use of this extended bank holiday weekend, visiting the walled garden down the road from me to practise photographing flowers for June’s round of Amateur Photographer’s annual photo competition. The results of these photo sessions will follow in the not too distant future, or at least that’s the intention.
