Dromeas, The Runner [1]

Whilst I was in Athens, I took the Metro from Metaxourghio to Evangelismos (Line 2) in search of what was described to me as a sculpture of a runner ‘made of glass’ created by Costas Varotsos, next to the Hilton Hotel.

As I neared the huge crescent shaped building I was confronted by this enormous 12 metre tall (almost 30 foot) sculpture made entirely from panes of glass and steel. It was frighteningly beautiful as the sharp edges of the glass glistened in the mid-day sun.

I used a panning effect with my camera in photo 1, to give the added illusion of Dromeas running…

Photo Friday | Festival of Music & Light

VividSydney Festival | Australia

This time last year I was visiting my son who at the age of nineteen left Manchester UK and was living in Sydney and working for the retail store TopMan.

On 23 May 2014, I went to the beautiful City of Sydney to view the spectacular VIVID SYDNEY festival with a group of photography enthusiasts and was in awe of the colourful light projections that had Enveloped the sails of the iconic Opera House.

The shots were captured resting my camera on the handrail….the other million photographers were clever enough to use tripods!

 

Places | An Evening in Manchester

MAY 2015 THEME CONTEST – MOTION BLUR CROWDS

I was drawn to a photography contest, run by Street Hunters.net a street photography group, whilst trawling the internet this morning.

Together with WP’s daily prompt ‘indecision’ I felt I just had to write this post.

Why?

I remember waiting (well hiding really) in the doorway of a building in Manchester one evening and experimenting with various shutter speeds whilst crowds of people were walking past the wall with an apt title ‘Manchester Means The World To Me’.

Now as you know I’m not a street photographer, which you can read about here and the first question to myself was:

‘Do I submit an image in colour or black and white?’

Secondly, ‘Which image do I submit?’….

So here is the gallery of images I drew inspiration from:

Do you think I fulfilled the brief?

Which image would you have submitted to the MOTION BLUR CROWDS contest?

Places | Sydney Series

Sydney Series | Australia

I remember feeling excited about a visit to Taronga zoo. Why? Because to get there I went on a high speed boat and then a cable car ride. It’s a huge place to walk around and I was greeted by the beautiful sight of giraffes eating overlooking the spectacular Sydney skyline!

Photo101: Triumph & Contrast

“Triumph comes in all shapes and sizes: finding enough coffee to make a full pot. Having just enough gas in the tank to get to the filling station. Finding out your story was accepted for publication in that awesome magazine”.

I am truly T R I U M P H A N T !

Why?

I have completed and enjoyed the #Photo101 on-line course over the last four weeks, met lovely world-wide bloggers, and am more focused with my blog.

And about the C O N T R A S T…

I would be really honoured if all my fellow bloggers could take a look (below) at a couple of new pages I have added, you’ll find it’s full of CONTRASTS:
colour / monochrome images
straight / abstract images.

When you stop by, be sure to leave a quick comment, constructive criticism ALWAYS welcomed!

It’s been a pleasure meeting new blogging friends. Thank you for stopping by and for all the encouraging comments I’ve received.
