Thursday Doors: Boat Houses

This could be an occasional niche within the niche that is Thursday Doors. So that's a nice niche niche then. Sorry. Anyway, Cornwall, being almost an island on the south-western end of the British Isles mainland, is of course a seafaring place and a lot of the small villages grew up, both in population and… Continue reading Thursday Doors: Boat Houses

Sharp & Incoming at Crackington

Is anyone tired of abstract sea and waves pictures yet? A slight difference in this one. With my sweeping panning movement I seem to have more or less matched the speed of the nearest waves, thereby keeping them relatively sharp compared with the rest of the scene. This has given me an effect that I… Continue reading Sharp & Incoming at Crackington

Barn Doors (for people)

The sort of doors that I'm likely to come across are those in a more rural and less populated setting. Basically, I'm not often found in areas where a lot more humans like to gather, build towns or cities and live fairly close to each other and therefore the exposure to fancy doors protecting the… Continue reading Barn Doors (for people)

Abstract Additions (and more normal stuff)

I deliberately haven't mentioned print stores for a while. Using the internet is a constant stream of tick box and permission enabling at the moment, together with appeals by newspapers for subscriptions and finding the actual content you went for within the site, probably hiding between the increasingly strident adverts. Even so, I have to… Continue reading Abstract Additions (and more normal stuff)

Church on Sunday

The title only refers to the fact that it is Sunday when I'm posting this picture of a church; in fact I'll be down at the beach scouring it for plastic and fishing industry waste and cleaning it up rather than sitting in church singing and asking for any supernatural help with the problems we… Continue reading Church on Sunday

Thursday Doors

There is a thing I keep seeing on Twitter where people post pictures of doors. It's a running series by Norman Frampton on his blog at Norm 2.0 "Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world." This may have started… Continue reading Thursday Doors

Offshore Mists Two

I posted a straight black and white shot of the Cambeak headland at Crackington wearing its little offshore cloud yesterday. Regular followers will know I've been trying the alternative abstract intentional camera movement technique on pretty much everything as well, so of course I tried it here too. My alone time - well, at least… Continue reading Offshore Mists Two

Offshore Mists

Yesterday morning was looking to bring a fine day. Even by 9am on a Sunday families were already occupying their little territories of the receding beach at Crackington as the tide was heading for one of its high points for the day. I had headed down there a little earlier than normal to give myself… Continue reading Offshore Mists

Crowdy Reservoir view

I went for a walk in Bude yesterday. There was a market on the Quay there and on one of the stalls there was a nice chap - John Worth Photography -  selling items featuring his own photos, from cards and calendars to mounted prints. He said that for his market - the many tourists… Continue reading Crowdy Reservoir view

Cornish landscape colours

Having tried out some deliberate camera movement pictures down at the coast pretty successfully, I was keen to apply the technique to some landscape. One place that is magnificent for views - but so difficult to get that translated into deep enough pictures to show for it - is Warbstow Bury, sitting at a high… Continue reading Cornish landscape colours
