The Friday Snap (TFS 28)

Not all photos work out every time the shutter is pressed, usually for a variety of reasons like trying to shoot in manual mode whilst shooting street and adjusting settings on the fly including manual focusing. It’s not only difficult but takes quite a lot of practice to master. There are loads of photographic opportunities to capture some great street photos in Davao City, Philippines but it’s not the time or the place to practice.

And that’s what happened in this photo. The two uniformed women were in stark contrast to their surroundings, but they noticed me adjusting camera settings providing ample opportunity to shy away as the shutter was pressed.

To be honest, this photo is a personal favourite. It reminds me that its OK to make mistakes and not every photo has to be perfect. Just enjoy getting out and taking photos, something we’re currently not allowed to do.

For those celebrating. Happy Easter. Until next time…….

5 Moments in Time – 2019

Inspired by reading Jim Goldstein’s Blog Project: Your Best Photos from 2019 and after losing several hours checking out other great collections over the years I decided that I would put together my 5 (favourite) Moments in Time – 2019.

Jim encourages all photographers to join in and all the details can be found by clicking on this link. Even if you don’t participate this year, go and have a look at what other photographers have created. It may just provide that little bit of inspiration for 2020.

So without further a due, these are my (favourite) moments in time for 2019.
