Photo walk

Some of us from Camera club went over to Lanhydrock this morning with the hope of photographing the autumn colours.... hmm apparently autumn hasn't arrived here yet!!
Thankfully one of the ladies brought her 3yr old Springer with her, naturally I couldn't resist taking her photo, she was on the go the whole time, I can see why they are called Springer's.  This one is called Gwen but I think she should have been named Tigger!!  A quick shot of her, unfortunately I didn't have the right lens with me.  So I shall be joining her one morning down the beach for a photo shoot soon :).
 
Have finished Amanda's room as well, so feeling chuffed with that. 
Off to camera club this evening.
 
College was good last night (Viv I am doing a photography course, see this post) we were looking at landscapes photographers as well as talking about our project.  Now I am not a huge landscape photographer, love the landscape but prefer to be in it rather than photographing it, if you understand my meaning.  So I couldn't believe my luck when Colin decided to look at the work of Robert Adams and had his book 'Summer Night Walking' - which I adore but not prepared to pay £102 for!!  Anyway, using this book as inspiration for some night-time photos  was one of my ideas for a project so that made my mind up.  So my homework for this week is to photograph a local retail park (thankfully we have one in Truro!!) and print some images out for next week.  Feeling rather excited about it. In case you are wondering what a retail park has to do with landscape, Robert
Adams was classed as one of the new topographic photographers when he first started out.   They photographed their environment, what they actually saw, what we see, what is not necessarily pretty but real. Everyday life. Things that you wouldn't normally think of photographing. Not everyone's cup of tea.  Not mind really but the night time element has it for me.
 
So today I popped over to Karen at And so, I sew another very crafty person with a lovely blog.
 
Once again loosely linking with Lucky Snapping - irresistible dog!!  So many links in this post, sorry. :)

  1. That dog is so sweet and the picture is fab. After Retrievers, this breed is my 2nd favorite, build on springs and so deliciously friendly doggies. xx

  2. I'm having the same problem around here - the autumn colour is very poor so far. Fingers crossed that it improves.

  3. I must have missed that post because I was away. Sorry. Your photos are lovely. I love the dog photos. We used to have a Springer and he was as daft as a brush.
