Passing of Strangers

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

The fourth image from my Birmingham at night series. This photograph was taken at the Christmas Market (which had just closed) and I thought to myself to plant my camera and tripod amongst the throng of strangers, and shoot the following scene which I had in my minds eye. I like the slightly surreal, almost science fiction feel to the resulting photograph. 

Lest we forget

First in a series I will posting that was taken back in November last year in Birmingham. I was up there for a company day conference the following day, and took the opportunity the night before to take myself for a wander with my camera and tripod. I was struck by the sense of atmosphere generated by the heavy mist and fog. There are a few styles and points of interest going on here in this image, with the war memorial on the left, hazy images of people walking slowly through the expose on the right, the ultra modern building with its steel cladding top right, and a real vibrant mix of  ambient light and colour from blue, to red to warm yellow and the bluish white of the Ferris wheel in the background.  Hope you all like the photo as much as I do.
