Tremolat1

France, 2014.This was taken on a lovely warm evening, exploring the back roads of Tremolat – a small village near to Limueil where we were staying in the summer. I really didn’t think that I had many decent images this year but looking back through my Lightroom library I have a few that I like. I’ve think been so busy that I haven’t had much time to look at them!

Back to my favourite time of year for photographing the city with the lower sun creating long shadows across the higher parts of the city.

Lothian Road, Edinburgh, iPhone

This is my one, ongoing, coherent project that I am working on about Edinburgh and the way shadows fall on the city at certain times of year. And now is that time, when the low winter sun casts long shadows across the streets. I put a heavily processed version of this image on Tumblr, but having looked at both I prefer this simpler black and white version. It was taken using the ┬áHipstamatic app – GSquad ‘Lens’ with Claunch 72 ‘film’. It was taken fresh today and the original is slightly warmer toned than this so I took some colour out in Lightroom.

It was sub-zero on the street but I stuck around a specific area hoping something would come together. I took quite a few iPhone pics and also some on the Rolleiflex. I am looking forward to seeing how they come out but suspect they won’t have the impact that this one has. Just as I was about to head back to my desk, a guy in a long winter coat and trilby style hat walked into the frame, echoing the image on the poster.
