It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, carrying the DSLR with the 18-400 lens, and a good shoulder strap. There is no doubt that the camera produces a better quality picture than the iphone, but I don’t wish to run the phone down, because the camera is really good.
Todays writing is about this mornings walk. I wanted to do some video so perhaps an little bit stupidly, I got up at 0500 and got out really early. The light was really nice. I like the header picture because if the way it shows the tower blocks receding in to the distance and daylong with the light showing the colours makes for a very pleasing picture. THe picture below appeals to me because of the golden colour of the building contrasting with the blue sky, along with the detail of the brickwork and shadows just gives me a warm glow.
For this next picture, I don’t know what the ball shaped objects is called in the context of being part of the structure (I’m pretty sure it’s not just a ball, actually having just looked at the definition of a finial, which is what I thought went on the top of a building it could be one of those. I must admit I did think about taking our the CIA box and cable. They are distracting, but also add to the character of the picture.
Going out with the SLR was really good today, and one that I am keen to repeat. It may become a regular occurrence. I need to play more with the various modes to refresh myself and become much more comfortable using the camera. The only issue is that for my facebook diary, I won’t be uploading the pictures until tomorrow.
Oh Well, it’ll be worth the wait.
