My Town...

Went walkabout yesterday with all the guys from the photography class I'm doing at the Community House....





...I think the locals were a wee bit perplexed as to why six or seven people were wandering around town armed with big cameras.....





...we were quizzed a couple of times about which 'paper' we were with...





...I enjoyed the process of just wandering and clicking...





...with no real end process in mind...





...I do 'tend to take a photograph and immediately plan what I'll do with it in Photoshop....





...sometimes I think that I rely on the post processing too much....





..but then again, I do it because I love it....





..not because I have to make a living or...





...please anyone other than me...





..so that's OK then...


This last one of the Catholic Church is a bit dark I think, which doesn't seem really appropriate. Might have to lighten it a little...

I have several others that I really love but they are of a couple of the people in the group and I won't put them up without at least asking if it's OK with them, so maybe next week..!

Winter drops...

Another frosty cold morning today so a couple more inevitable water drop shots...



Not an amazing photo, but I like the string of crystal pearls - a faerie tightrope or necklace...?



I do like this though, the drop of water on the end of the Birch branch is frozen, the crazing you can see is actually the ice starting to melt, cool huh?
