359/366 Grab shots

I was walking down the high street when I saw these, shapes, lines and colours I thought that might be an interesting picture. So I stopped and grabbed it. Admittedly, I have done a little bit of cropping. I like the shapes and the colours, with even the bars being blue. I can’t tell you why I like it I just do.

On a scale of one to 1000, I would say that my knowledge of the rules of composition, understanding colour and light are probably at around 40-50. In other words not a lot. Therefore, any picture that I (that’s me, alone – no one else) would class as good, can only have been taken by chance. I didn’t apply any thought of composition, I saw balloons behind a security grid and grabbed the shot, I didn’t get down low to see if the angle is right. Chance, or luck?

How well would I improve my good to bad ratio, if I was better educated in respect of photography. Early on in the 366 series, I said that I was going to ignore photography books. That was not because of an arrogance in thinking that I knew everything, I know (knew) I didn’t. So, what do I do? an online course or a book? Actually, I have an idea – The Gosport Unofficial Camera Club – GUCC. It’s a Facebook group. I know exactly what I am going to do. I’m not going to tell you now, but I will work on it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
