Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream  Night-time view of a restored customised VW Kombi (Combi) that is local to Eastbourne. It can be tricky shooting cars at night, especially when the best angle is on the other-side of a busy rat run cut through, and you have to allow for 30 odd second exposures,  and often have the risk of a light trail running through the shot.  On this occasion the combination of low angle for the composition and the happy occurrence of a passing car across the shot led to this pleasing combination of effect, composition and subject matter.

Night time photo of a Chevrolet Van that hangs around Eastbourne. Part of my Americans Abroad Series too (link  to my Flickr Gallery) , my homage to all things motorised and American that I come across in my travels. 

Wheeling Around

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

The third image from my Birmingham series. This was taken outside the Birmingham City Library. I don't normally go for to much in the way of altering colour in my post processing, however on this occasion a little experimenting created this almost cold purple tone which I feel compliments the misty atmosphere, and I have ended up with this almost Science Fiction feel which compliments the previous post in my Birmingham City Centre series.

Night Train

Latest photography posted on my Ipernity Photo Stream

Night shot with light trails from a passing Southern Rail train taken down at St Leonard's at the end of last year. For me the main draw is the urban industrial nature of the building on the left, with the street lamps running up the center of the shot, of course the timing of the light trail created by the passing train is a major positive for me creating some additional atmosphere and the all important sense of dynamic movement , the coastal aspect of the sea to the right and the rising moon in a cloudy sky - finishing touches.  As you may realize I am reasonably pleased with this photo. There is one element that annoys me, but I wont share just yet what this is. As always there is something that says to me "must try harder", and just not quite the perfect composition it could be in my eyes.
