Impressions in rain

‘Impression in rain’

Taken while I was sitting in the car waiting for my son to finish Saturday art club.

The rain started to come down, so I thought I’d get some impressionistic shots through the wet car window of people passing by.

To get the look I wanted I set the focus manually to about 4ft. This way the camera was neither focused on the window nor the people and buildings, giving a sort of swirly paint look.

Best viewed at a slight distance. Or for some, maybe not at all hehe.

Nonetheless, it’s fun to experiment.

Lola’s ghost

Lola’s ghost (7 Images)

I took a brief wander around a few streets earlier today and came across this little gem. A decaying independent ice cream van!

This is my kind of heaven, photographically speaking.

Unfortunately I could not get a head on shot as there was a car parked right in front, just inches away. Not much to see on the inside either as it’s filled to the brim with crap.

Oh, and if you were thinking of looking up the web address seen on the rear of the van, don’t bother. It’s a long gone site that is currently occupied by a placeholder with porn links! Such a shame.

Gone but no longer forgotten.

Twenty minutes

‘At rest’

More pics below.

Grabbed a quick twenty minutes photography after dropping my wife at the train station.

The light looked really promising, there way no way I was going to miss it.

I headed straight for Hastings old town and the beach where the fishing fleet resides. Light changes fast, there was no time to lose.

Grabbed my trusty little Fuji X10, my carry everywhere camera, and went about snapping as fast as I could getting the best compositions I could find.

Twenty minutes later and the best of the light gone, I headed back home to sort out the kids for school.

Posted one for Images not Words, below are the best of the rest.

The painter

‘The painter’

Went on a day trip to France for my birthday this past Thursday.

Had a lovely three course lunch in a little restaurant in Boulogne-sur-mer old town.

Took a small amount of pics wandering around the streets, ending up with one or two I’m reasonably happy with.

The streets were as quiet as his painting suggests.
