A pastoral scene

Today I present two views of the same scent. One in portrait orientation, the other landscape. I’m not sure which I prefer – the portrait shot has better composition, I think, while the landscape orientation possibly has more atmosphere thanks to the birds in flight (and in the trees), but at the expense of the foreground fence being less well positioned. Anyway, here are both of them.

Natural architecture

Spider webs have an odd feature of being both a little creepy (have you ever walked face-first into one in the dark?) and beguilingly elegant (watching a spider construct one of these natural works or architecture is both fascinating and also slightly humbling). Sometimes though, when they’re festooned with dewdrops and bathed in a shaft of early morning sunshine, they’re simply beautiful.

Vape

It was a pretty cold day when I took the shot and the temperature meant that the clouds of vapor from this man’s e-cigarette were all the more prominent. I took one shot with his head in a cloud of smoke, and then this one in the midst of emission.
