End Of The Rainbow

End Of The Rainbow Title: End Of The Rainbow
Location: Margaretting, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF-S
Notes: Driving home form work on evening, I noticed the deeply forbidding clouds just as the sun came out and illuminated the golden yellow field of rape. The rainbow arced into the sky, and I had to shelter under an enormous umbrella to take my picture.

First Adventure With A DSLR

In February 2004 I got my first Digital SLR – a Canon EOS300D, about the same time a friend also got one, and we spent a great day roaming about on the South Bank in London. Here are my best shots from the day:

Title: Proximity
Location: City of London
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF
Notes: I was interested in the juxtaposition of styles here – the venerable old stone Georgian architecture, in close proximity to the sleek modern glass of the Gherkin.

Movie Tag
Title: Movie Tag
Location: London Bridge
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF
Notes: Walking across London Bridge, I came across this graffiti tag which had been scrawled on the shiny metal handrail. I liked the colour pop treatment.

Life Imitates Art
Title: Life Imitates Art
Location: South Bank
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF
Notes: The real tree is the art, or is it the artificial one?

A Girl In Pink
Title: A Girl In Pink
Location: South Bank
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF
Notes: I was lining up my shot of City Hall when she came trotting down the stairs. Colour pop again emphasised her and made her stand out from the blue tones background.

House Of The Rising Sun Title: House Of The Rising Sun
Location: Tate Modern, London
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF
Notes: The Weather Exhibition was an installation in the spectacular main Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern on London’s South Bank. A fast ISO equivalent film speed helped to capture the misty atmosphere in the hall.

Beach Stroller

Location: Bournemouth
Camera: Canon EOS 50E
Film: Kodak Gold 200
Notes: This was an opportunistic shot as the afternoon drew to a close on a crisp November day in 2003. I was in Bournemouth for the evening and took a walk along to Prom to see what I could see. This lady pushing her baby in a buggy along the wet sand was my reward.
