Resurgence

Yesterday I was suprised to find a huge amount of hits on two of my early images, both showcasing 60’s/70’s architecture. I’m still not sure why there is such an interest in these two pictures but I thank you anyway…

Both images were taken in the summer of 2005 with my IPAQ rx3000, hence the lower quality. (1.2 mp).

The University of Manchester’s “MATHS TOWER”, was taken a few months before it’s demolition in 2005. The “LANCASTER SERVICES 1” was taken a year before it was renovated, or certainly repainted in 2006.

Each image is accompanied by a picture from 2006, showing the evolution or destruction of each structure.

New Page – Nine Centuries From Flickr 2005 -2009

I have created a new page to mark every hundredth image to be posted on Flickr. This was originally a recurring and updated post but it was becoming so large and repetitive, I felt that it was better simply to dedicate a page for the topic instead.

The Eaton’s Shoot Salford…

The following set of images taken on a recent trip to Salford Museum by my girlfriend’s children, who range from the ages of 5 to 13.  To get the best out of what we both felt were wonderful images, I have made some minor adjustments, but mainly in contrast and brighness etc…

There were indeed many good if not excellent photos taken that day, but I decided to chose one for each of them. This is not to say that these were the only good ones, as these are but a sample, but that they represent the eye of each of them well in my opinion. They have certainly got a fantastic eye though and I hope that you would agree…

A random taste of July

This is a bit random but these are the only two images that have ever been posted on the 28th July so I just thought I’d share them with you. These 4 images were all taken with my Kodak Z740 and to this day I still use it along with my Nikon and rate it very highly.

All these were taken in North Wales back in summer of 2007.

Llandudno over the past 3 years

This is a photo set of Llandudno, North Wales. The images were captured over the past 3 years, spanning 2006 – 2008.

The first is view from the Great Orme, looking out over the Welsh bay…

The railway on the left is one of mode of transport up the Great Orme. It is a cable railway system, which pulls the trains up and down, whist the road will serve as a more conventional method.

Back again, gone but not forgotten…

It’s been a few months since my last post but I would first like to thank everyone who has continued to follow my blog, and the hits have just kept coming.

These three images have been selected from my “Flickr Favourites” set on Flickr. These are some early attempts at photoshoping images and are a little different from my prefered, unaltered photography.

The first image, “City View” was taken from my attempt at an online comic, titled “The Seventh Idol”, back in 2006. The main image is of Manchester, and the foreground rendering was done using Daz 3D. The overall mastering of the shot was completed using Photoshop.

I must admit I do really like this image, but the comic was hampered by my lack of knowledge of the comic genre and the lack of computer power and rendering capabilities at the time. I’ve come on a way since then, but this was early days.

City View

The next image is of the Art Asylum’s Classic Enterprise from Star Trek. Taken with my Kodak Z740 against a red velvet curtain, I used the colour replace option to remove it. I then used a star brush for the stars and a couple of lens flares…

Enterprise Version 2

This final image is of the Art Asylum’s Movie Enterprise from Star Trek III. Again taken with my Kodak Z740 against a red velvet curtain, I used the colour replace option to remove it. I then used a star brush for the stars and a couple of lens flares… This was the earlier of the two, hence the cruder nature of the image.

eight centuries (Updated)

Today, I’ve decided to showcase a more broader selection of my work, presenting every hundreth shot, starting here, with Number 1, taken back in June 11th 2005 with my IPAQ rx3000, hence the lower quality.

This was simply a shot of the sunlight beaming through my apple tree.

#100 – This image of a University Of Manchester walkway was taken with my Vivitar 3765 on cold morning back in February 2006.
Angles

#200 – I actually can’t remember exactly which stretch of motorway we were on at the time that I took this image, but it was clearly sunset on August 5th 2006, and I used my Kodak Z740 at a decidedly fast shutterspeed.
Beams @ Dusk

#300 – This was one my early technical attempts at macros using my Kodak, back on May 26th 2007.
Light Bee

Good old Waterloo Place at Manchester University. This is an old favoirite on this blog, but I couldn’t exclude it as it does happen to be Number 400 in our list!
