Hoping this qualifies for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lines and Angles

Typewriter

Saw this interesting piece at a flea market this weekend.  It’s not your typical typewriter with the letters on the end of arms that hammer down on a ribbon.  This has a wheel which rotates and tilts to the correct letter as you press the key and the brushes over a small inkpad before making its mark – clever engineering and similar in some ways to IBM’s electric ‘golf ball’ design many decades later.

Industrial landscapes

I don’t know why but industrial architecture and landscapes always interest me.  I recently took my Bessamatic out with a 50mm lens and some Delta 400 and shot these of my local power station (perhaps as a homage to Willard Van Dyke?).

Not sure they came out quite how I saw them but I am very happy with the Bessamatic; the image quality is excellent.

Still here

Not sure but I think this old car is waiting to be rescued or at least for some attention.  Spotted it hiding in the trees in Joshua Tree

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Walking Paths and Trails

Blurred

I took this a while ago of one of my friends throwing stones into the sea whilst we were at the beach in Santa Barbara. I decided to defocus completely as an experiment.  This remains one of my favourite pictures.

Primative

I’m adding this as my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge which this week is Satisfaction; both because I am satisfied by the result also the action of tossing stones into the sea is a very satisfying if slightly pointless activity.

Bubbles

Can’t decide whether I like this; I was trying to capture bubbles blowing past me whilst I was waiting at the Disney park recently, it was getting darker as the evening was approaching so I was limited on aperture settings.  It was also busy with people walking about, not sure if they add or take away from the image.

There’s lots going on; the bubbles, people walking past, a boy dropped his water, other people are  sitting in the background.

I decided to go with a Street Photography look and make it black and white.
