Demonstration

There was an pro-EU demonstration in town last weekend, so I went along and took a few shots.

Walking past the cheesegrater

The building in the background of the shot is a bit of a landmark in Sheffield (and one of the most photographed buildings in the city it would seem). It’s a multi-story car park, and its distinctive cladding provides countless compositions depending on the shooting spot, angle, lens, light etc.

Escalators

I thought I’d dig something older out of the pile today, so here’s a shot taken on a trip to liverpool in late 2016. I was with my wife, so it wasn’t a photography outing, and on those occasions I feel a little guilty about taking my time over shots, so a lot of them are taken on the fly and grabbed when I can, as was the case here. There’s undoubtedly a better shot to be had of this location, but I’m not too unhappy about this.

Interesting things

I timed this shot just right to get the chaps face in the gap between the items, but I like the stuff on the table too, from the frog golf caddy in the frock coat (with red cap), the Leica slide projector, the skull-topped canes and all the rest.

Outside Santander

I spotted this chap waiting at the edge of the market square, stood in some warm light from the low-ish sun and with some nice shadows cast on the building from a nearby tree. Again, I’m really pleased with the colours from this film.

Alfresco refreshments

I shot a roll of Lomography Color Negative 400 for the first time this week. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the results are very nice, with pleasing colour, and I’m very happy with it (especially as it only cost £10 for three rolls). I used a full roll wandering around the flea market taking photos of life around the place. The light was nice and I got several pictures I’ve very happy with, but here’s a shot of people enjoying a tea break amongst the market stalls.
