The Friday Snap (TFS 14)

In my neighborhood, a number of large properties have been sold to housing developers. With the over grown grass and junk mail in the letterboxes, the houses which were once homes sit silently to await their fate of meeting the bulldozer in silence. All of them look quite sad like their souls have been torn out!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy Friday.

The Friday Snap (TFS 12)

It’s been a few weeks since the last Friday Snap was published and it’s all down to life that has started to be become busier and busier in the lead up to the Christmas period. Yes, that’s right Christmas is not far away and just think that there is less than 90 days left in this decade!

On to The Friday Snap, this fine gentleman was walking through Cardiff CBD and I stopped him and asked to take his photo. He was on his way pretty quick so I’ll never know why he was dressed as he was.

Until next time, Happy Friday and have a good weekend.

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.

This week sees The Friday Snap go into double figures and there maybe some conjecture that this week’s submission was captured using a smartphone. Let me assure you that it was and it’s all in the crop.

Cropping the image to isolate the subject reduces the number of distractions and focuses the viewer in on the subject.

Don’t be afraid to crop your photos.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

My Son, My Grandson

The last few weeks have been pretty busy as our Son and his partner welcomed a healthy baby boy into the world.

Welcoming this young fella into the world has clarified what’s important in life.

Happy Shooting

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.
