Day #333

Day #333Title: Down Among The Triffids
Location: RHS Hyde Hall, Rettenden
Camera: GoPro Hero 4 Silver
Extras: GoPro Pole / GoPro App
Notes: Encouraged by the promise of a sunny day, I took off to visit Hyde Hall gardens. I had a lovely wander around the grounds, making the most of the balmy weather. There isn’t a lot of colour left in my garden by this time of year, but I managed to find some here – the Chinese Lanterns were beginning to go to seed, but I love their bright vibrant orange against the blue sky. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #39 – A Colourful Garden.

Day #184

Day #184Title: Swirly
Location: De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wireless Remote
Notes: I went the long way home from Kent today via Hastings and Eastbourne piers. I also stopped off very briefly at the Art Deco masterpiece, the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, which houses one of my favourite spiral staircases. I fitted my fisheye lens, put the camera on its back and looked up the stairwell. It gave me a great angle for the current 52 Weeks ThemeAn Unusual Point Of View

Day #34

Day #34Title: Gravity Sucks
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger / Lastolite Rusty Background
Notes: I took some time to do my homework from our Creative Photography course today. We had to make a mind map of an apple and one of the branches was to write down what associations you have for apples. Having done the Magritte homage on Day #32, and being a scientist by training, my next self portrait idea was inspired by the apocryphal tale of an apple falling on Sir Isaac Newton‘s head. The offending fruit was suspended above me by a piece of cotton, a rather cunning anti-gravity device! I added some motion blur in post-production, so you will be pleased to learn that no heads (or apples) were harmed in the making of this picture.
