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

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.

Sleeping stranger

I very rarely take pictures of people especially strangers but for some reason I was fixated with this sleeping guy’s face and couldn’t resist taking a sneaky snap.

Los Angeles State Historic Park

A few weeks ago I visited the newly opened Los Angeles State Historic Park.  I understand this park has been a long time in the making and opened something like 16 years late.

Anyway it’s a nice open space close to Chinatown and Downtown LA, well worth a visit if you want to chill out.  It’s quite open and new looking, much of the trees and shrubbery still need to mature and it can only get better.  Considering it’s newly opened there was a lot of repair work going on but it was still nice to walk around for an hour or so.

I took my Voigtlander Bessa RF with me loaded with Ilford Delta 400.   Continue reading “Los Angeles State Historic Park”

Mercs resting place

Spotted these on a walk the other night;  old Mercedes dozing in a lot.
