This is the Dry Stack at Gosport Marina. Roughly in the middle of the picture is the forklift truck that moves the boats around. It was in the process of putting a boat on the stack. I took this today as I was out on my walk.
I was determined to just take some pictures as I was out and about. I didn’t go anywhere special. Just on my normal route. I took this picture of a tree trunk;
I thought it might look OK in mono, but really it doesn’t. To be honest, it’s not that good in colour. Then I took another picture;
I was after the angles on the corner. It wasn’t until I was editing the picture that I even realised that the people on the bench were there, or the discarded can of beer. I quite like this one, but only quite. It doesn’t have the same effect on me that some of the pictures that I take have, like this one for example;
I wrote about this one when I first took it. The circumstances under which the opportunity for the picture occured frustrates the heck out of me and also that I really like the picture.
To briefly go back to the one “I quite like” It wasn’t a grab shot, I was trying to compose a picture to show angles. Composition is an absolutely fundamental aspect of photography. I need to look at that.
