Lunch hour

More images below.

So, it seems that everyday is now turning into a challenge to nab something for my 366 project ‘Images not words’. Some days are proving to be more difficult than others. So far in this month of February, I’ve had less time to get out and about with my camera, often coming home with little or nothing I feel worthy of posting. I guess this is all part and parcel of what it’s all about. On these occasions I’ve decided to use it as an opportunity to set up a quick tabletop lighting study to hone my flash photography skills. The pictures may not be that interesting to others but I’m finding it a useful exercise nonetheless.

This past Thursday however, I found myself with the opportunity to grab a decent lunch hour. So, with camera in hand and the sun shining brightly I decided to go for a brief walk around Pevensey castle and a nearby churchyard.

It was a welcome break and certainly helped blow away some cobwebs from my addled brain.

I got a few shots I was happy with to boot, including shot number 42 of ‘Images not words’. The rest are pictured below.

A Battle lost

‘A battle lost’

Quickly went to the beach again first thing this morning. 

The light was not as spectacular as my visit last week but still quite nice. 

Out of the ones I took, I ended up preferring this shot, which doesn’t rely upon the colour of light.

Had this one earmarked for Images not Words all day but on my drive home the sunset looked great. 

Quickly pulled to the side of the road and shot some grass silhouetted against the setting sun. 

That shot is now day 34 of Images not words.

Off the beaten track

‘Off the beaten track’

Innocent or illicit?

Assumption is the mother of all f**k-ups.

Had a short wander around Hastings earlier, saw that the alley behind the Observer building was open. Snapped these two, then went in.

Around the corner I would bump into a fellow photography enthusiast I know from Twitter but had never met.

We had a nice chat then parted company. I still only know him by his Twitter handle.

Walked back round to leave and spotted the two lads from earlier and asked if I could take their picture.

The result is today’s Images not words shot.

 A good day.

‘Early start’

Here are two other pics taken yesterday at the same time as my ‘Images not Words’ shot. All three were taken from the same spot but feature slightly different main elements. Yesterday’s being the crow in flight (see below), one being the jogger and one that focuses on the sun bursting through the clouds. In the end I decided to choose the bird shot for the project as it gives as sense of being free.

Now I have to decide what to shoot today.
