Today I was in Glasgow shopping of all mundane things. The value of my S95 couldn’t have been more apparent since I was not intending to take pictures, but I had taken the S95 in my inside pocket. (It’s that small). There was freezing fog everywhere, and it looked bleak and uninteresting. Suddenly I emerged…

    Matthew, these are just awesome. A person who sees this beauty and sees beyond the rush of the here and now, must be truly special! Thank you for sharing. You have inspired me.

    Nice set of images. Can almost feel / imagine the coldness of the day. Very cool that you caught the shaft of light under the bridge and that 3 archs shot of the underside of the bridge has a nice ghostly feel. And very true the best cam is the one that is with you always though of late, there are some many choices of nice, fairly pocketable compacts.

This was my second choice of portraits from my session with Alison during my 100 portraits project. This was a darkening, rainy evening. 6.30 on the 26th of March according to the exif data.

To get both, handheld, I used auto bracketing and the impressive burst speed of…

  • Good idea, I have updated the post to include those exposures.

This is the view I encountered on the 21st of December last year, on my way home from a short stay in Campbeltown. This was the late, low-sun view from the beach at Bellachantuy on the Kintyre Peninsula. What made me stop to try this as a mainly portrait guy, was the  desire to play…

  • Stunning image, looks like something from the Arctic. The views to Jura, and sunsets behind the paps, from the road to Campbeltown are something special 😉

It’s been a while since I posted a second choice from my 100 portraits project. This is Michelle, we did the photographs at the People’s Palace in Glasgow. This one was taken after we were thrown out of the indoor garden area. We took advantage of the lovely, freshly cleaned fountain and late low light…
