Exciting news (for me) in rural North Cornwall. As we were leaving to go out two weeks ago, a couple of white vans were parked on the verge opposite our house and men with fluorescent jackets on were sort of chatting and pointing at a hole in the ground. There was also a metre diameter … Continue reading Superfast
I don't think I've posted any of the intentional movement images that I've made in black and white before.I do occasionally try out converting a few in post-processing but rarely find anything worthwile. I think this is because I am not intending for most of my abstract shots to be in monochrome when I'm actually … Continue reading Windswept Black and White
I was over on 35hunter reading one of Dan's series on close-up equipment (yes, I know, my last post was about not being overly concerned with equipment but generally I read most of what Dan posts, even when it's equipment focused - and this is one of the types of photography where a variety of … Continue reading Still Blurry but Closer
Do visitors to my blog need to know what goes on to produce the image that I put on here? Generally, I've avoided it. There's deliberately not any file info on my images here apart from its actual file name normally (and I'm not even very good at organising that). To me it's just not … Continue reading Technical Stuff
I've been down at the beach taking a few of my little abstracts of the stream running across the pebbles. It's busier down there now with the half-term holidays starting and other people are doing the holiday making things with the kids, taking their shots of the ocean and the dramatic views. I, however, am … Continue reading Not the View
When I went out yesterday it was a little cloudy but bright. As I got to the beginning of the track that leads out to the coast path, where the view over the ocean opens out, I could see that there was a weather front just threatening to travel up the Bristol Channel and perhaps … Continue reading Rusey Cliffs and Lundy
It is just over a year ago now that my then sparsely filled blog was made an Editors Pick on WordPress Discover. The blog was relatively young, only going about six months and had a following you only needed two people with hands to count. I had only made about thirty posts of single Black … Continue reading How Discover didn’t help much.
I mentioned visits to both Port Isaac and the Lost Gardens of Heligan on my Thursday Doors post a few days ago, saying that both are really popular these days (and a visit to a garden was not really about doors). Port Isaac is a famed fishing village on the north coast, while Heligan is … Continue reading Port Isaac and Heligan
Some Doors: Today is Thursday and on Thursdays I sometimes take part in Thursday Doors. This is a photographically themed blog day that I occasionally join in, mainly on weeks when I have actually been outdoors. And somewhere there are more buildings that have doors on them than places that have Tors on them.So this … Continue reading Some Doors & Other Things.
A year has passed since I decided to make this blog 'my own', by paying for a domain name and to go without adverts.I know this because I have just had notice that my payment for the next year of it has just arrived (notice that it has been paid, not that it was due … Continue reading Renewal
I logged in to my Twitter account this morning to find a lovely tweet from Lucy, super-talented creator behind the Silence Killed the Dinosaurs blog. This was a surprise because I normally get an email from Redbubble when I make a print sale and I hadn't seen this one. Then I remembered that Lucy also … Continue reading Surprise
Hello, I thought I'd better post something new here, just to show I hadn't abandoned being the photographer called Bear R Humphreys. Life is generally good but I have had a string of MS-based fatigue relapses over the new year season that have kept me from really getting enthusiastic about anything at all really.I have … Continue reading Still here…
