Post one get one free

OOps who forgot, well didn't get around to blogging yesterday?? Hey ho never mind, not the end of the world.  Yesterday I popped over to Kirsty Wiseman's blog, I had to smile as I could feel her energy for life whilst reading her posts.

After work yesterday I popped over to an industrial park on the outskirts of Truro to start taking images for my project.  Once again I had images in my mind but quickly realised that in order to get them I would have to speak to the owner of the Jaguar garage and ask him to arrange the cars as I wanted, not as he wants them and to turn off a lot of the lights that are on the cars  -  I think the chances of him agreeing to that are a great big fat ZERO lol.  So I abandoned my ideas and went with what I had.
So this was the first one
 
First lesson, check lens before taking photos,  this will avoid blobs around the place!! Secondly as much as I love light trails I really didn't want any in the image, so not great but still converted to b&w to see and will print off for college!  The b&w version.
 

Second image, clean lens and moved across the road, I am now stood with the car behind me, better this time as it has the empty feeling I wanted and no blobs :)  much less busy.

and the b&w version
 
So back out tonight to a retail park.
 
Today I visited It is Safe for You to Love blog.  Right off to work now. Have a good evening everyone. x

    1. Hi Diane, use a large aperture ie f11 + to stop the bokeh effect, as well as dusting the lens lol. xx
