Title: The Bench
Location: Swanage Pier, Dorset
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: I loved the contrast between the old peeling blue paint on the bench and the yellow lichen on the pier planks. I opened up the lens wide for a shallow DoF.

Clearly, the Face Down Tuesday phenomenon is quackers. And this just proves the point – down with the ducks at Writtle village pond. Thanks to Alistair for making the pic while I did the hard work. Quack! Quack! Mr Duck would be proud…
I managed a quick FDT in the Barbican this morning on my way to work. Thankfully there weren’t many other folks about to observe my craziness!
