Autumn is also arriving and the trees in the neighbourhood are starting to turn. I’m still taking photos but I’m also still behind on my posting. Editing wedding photos and the start of kindergarten has thrown my usual routine into disarray.
Hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of regular posts for #50WithA50 soon but for now I’ll post two today, one from two weeks ago and one from last week.
Very very late posting this but I did take it last week. I had a family wedding where I was the wedding photographer so I’ve been swamped both with getting ready, shooting the wedding and processing photos. I didnt use the 50mm at all during the wedding, it was in my bag but I didnt have a chance to take it out. I shot a detail afterwards of the invite and some spare boutonnieres using the 50mm so I thought I’d post it. Hopefully I’ll post another later this week and try to catch up.
We took Molly horse riding at the weekend. Just a short ride for charity but I brought my camera with the 50mm lens on it because I guessed there would be lots to take photos of. There was, though mostly I took photos of Molly, she loved riding a unicorn (ok a white horse with a pink horn strapped on but don’t ruin the fantasy). #50WithA50
I went down to Quidi Vidi this week to take some night time shots. I love Quidi Vidi but I have to say at the moment a lot of it’s quaint beauty is being destroyed by new buildings and a lot of construction. A huge amount of the old village is barricaded off and has been for a long time now. What ever they are building better be worth it and hopefully wont detract from the old world charm of the village or they will find in their rush to exploit the tourism potential of the village they paved over the tourism potential of the village. For now parts of the old village remain and here is a long exposure shot of some of the old buildings for this weeks #50WithA50
We went downtown for the first in ages to see the Busker Festival. Unfortunately we only got to see one act before the rain arrived and I couldn’t get close enough to that act to use my 50mm lens. I did however take some random shots thinking I’d have time to take more later. The one I wanted to post for this weeks #50WithA50 I cant post because I didnt read the labels on the boxes I was photographing and they are certainly not safe for work. Note to self, pay more attention to the subject next time not just the overall scene 🙂 Anyway as a fall back here is another shot I liked of the clouds reflecting in some windows. Hard to believe that within a short time of this photograph being taken there was torrential monsoon style rain and sinkholes appearing on the streets.
Today was Regatta Day in St John’s so we headed down to Quidi Vidi to see what was going on. I brought my camera in the hopes of getting some people shots with my 50mm but it turned out to be pretty hard to use a camera with a 5 year old sitting on my shoulders 🙂 Anyway I still managed to get a few shots and here is one of a busker for this weeks #50WithA50
