Inside a Building

Well, this portrait photographer is trying something new again. It’s round 2 of the Amateur Photographer contest, “Inside a Building”, and I thought I would use it as an excuse again to try some new pictures. This weekend I snatched a moment or two in 2 shopping centres and a car park to catch some…

Inveraray winter sunshine

  • Wow the little Sony does a job. Considering how many photos I have taken around Inveraray you would be forgiven for thinking I had tried every place from every angle.
