Really enjoying the 52-week smartphone challenge as it has forced me to consider how to approach each week’s theme and this week had me searching for leading lines everywhere I looked.

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!
Hope everyone has a great weeked.
It was one of those mornings where it would have been better if I stayed in bed. Nothing I tried to do with my camera to capture an image, any image seemed to work. My frustrations were increased when I realised that my remote shutter release was at home and levelling the tripod became a frustrating feat which then snowballed to even the basics like focus, rule of thirds, getting the ISO right etc.
Deciding that the best photo taken this morning was not one taken by me left me with the option of just watching the sunrise as I considered how far I could chuck a tripod off a cliff (and the cost of a replacement tripod). So I cleared my head and decided that I would move the set up and try again. As the saying goes “Perseverance pays off” meant that I couldn’t just give up so I decided that I would bracket three images and then head home for breakfast.
I’m fully aware that we all have days that are simply fustrating and we should go and do something safe, like going back to bed but instead we stick a piece of technical equipment like a camera in our hands to
frustrate challenge us a that little bit more so I’m curious what frustations you have had while out shooting…..and has anyone has every thrown their tripod off a cliff?
