The Friday Snap (TFS 11)

Recently this blog hit triple figures for subscribers, yep we hit the big 100 and I would like to acknowledge everyone who follows this blog, new and old. Massive Thank You. I know 100 doesn’t sound like a lot but it certainly is to me and I really appreciate that people take the time to read what I write and look at the photos that I’m constantly making and sharing. Thank you.

It was not surprising to find a statue of a dragon within the walls of Cardiff Castle especially with the hype surrounding the TV series, Game of Thrones coming to an end. Everyone was drawn to the dragon to capture a photo.

As this photo was being processed through Snapseed I decided that the people in the right of the frame needed to be cloned out which I think has reduced the number of distractions away from the Dragon. Its not perfect but it works.

I’ve blogged about this little Yellow Bus previously and as anyone who has experienced long haul flights know that stop overs can seriously suck, however they don’t have to if you wander the airport with smartphone or camera in hand seeking out photographic opportunities becomes an indoor photo walk!

Some times you just have to stop and ask……………..

Can I take a photo of your dog?

Fortunately I don’t have any problems asking people if they mind if I take their (or their dogs) photo but out of curiousity I really wanted to ask why?

Hope everyone has a great weekend

The Friday Snap (TFS 4)

This project of sharing a photo from the gallery of my smartphone every week has been going for a month now. I’m not sure what direction the project will take me but it will only be around for as long as I have photos that are worthy of sharing.

This weeks photo is of the reflections of a small town on the waters edge. Unfortunately only a small amount of colour in the sky.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Never sure exactly what the artists was trying to achieve with this installation in Cardiff however looking up paid off to capture an image that I now use as a background on my smartphone.

Happy Shooting

The Friday Snap (TFS 1)

We don’t print our photos any more, we don’t put them into photo albums to show family and friends nor do we have slide nights (thankfully). Now we press the digital shutter without thought or consequence, share one or two photos to our favourite social media platform and the continue on with life keeping all the photos that never made the cut.

Have you ever sat down and cleaned out or deleted the photos that are blurry, someone’s head or hand is in the frame. That’s what I did and discovered a gobsmacking number of photos stored on the phone with just over a 1000 remaining in the collection.

Putting some serious thought into what should be done with them all resulted in a idea which is to share the better photos here in a blog post called ‘The Friday Snap’. The requirement must be that they were taken using a smartphone and processed using snapseed or a similiar app.

I hope you enjoy what is to come.

Happy Shooting
