At the start of this photo-a-week project, I set myself an objective.  No flowers.  Unless absolutely unavoidable. So, for the third time, I am presenting an image of what else, ….. a flower.  It is another in my series of desiccated tulips, a subject which I have been doing quite a lot of late.  Far […]

I will not describe it as a mistake, rather a miscalculation when I started my shot of the week project at the beginning of the year. After four months, it remains on track, despite appearances to the contrary.  Where I erred was in underestimating the time required to produce a blog article to accompany every […]

In my last post, I commented on one of the issues which arises when deciding which photograph to publish for the week.  In that instance, I had three candidates and for the sake of variety opted for the one which it would not be possible to repeat.  This time, the problem is different in that […]

Options When going through the week’s images looking for “the one”, I had a number of options.  I could have shown the latest in the series of flower images I have been making in the past few weeks.  They are good, to my eye at least, but would repeat what I have done previously during […]

This shot, Pairings, was taken at the conclusion of a street photography walk.  It was a circular tour, going from King’s Cross in London to Camden Market and back.  This is a well known location which I have never previously managed to find.  It is a subway which I had heard described as being a […]

There are many positives to undertaking a challenge which requires the regular production of images.  Not least is the incentive to use the camera.  Life has plenty of other distractions and it is all too easy not to take a photograph for a while. Another benefit such a project is the opportunity to try different […]

A shorter than usual blog post than usual for this week’s image for the week. There was a lot going on which did not leave much time for photography. I took this photo in my local woods and enjoyed seeing the sun catching the bare branches at the top of the trees. The bright day […]

Shot of the Week 2019/06 – Faded Tulip

During what was a quiet period photography wise, I was looking for a subject in the house for the week’s photo. I had a few ideas before finding this tulip which had, admittedly, seen better days. As well as its faded glory, the stem had become twisted with age into an interesting shape. While I […]

Someone remarked that so far this year I have been doing a lot of travelling to obtain my shot of the week.  That has been purely coincidental since I was visiting those areas for reasons other than photography.  On this occasion, though, I have stayed closer to home, the woods behind my house to be […]

Shot of the Week 2019/04 – Best View in the World

A spectacular claim indeed.  One for which I make no apology, even though our planet has no shortage of scenic landscapes at which to marvel.  But this location is both distinct and unique and I am far from the first to have thought this to be an impressive view.  On the hill behind where I […]
