At last, a post! I finally got around to working a very meagre selection of pictures taken over the past few months. I think I was given the impetus last night after watching the documentary film In No Great Hurry, about one of my favourite photographers – Saul Leiter.

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!

A gaggle has to contain at least 5 geese, so I read. This was taken in France in the summer on a donkey farm in the Vendée. It is a bit pictorial for me but I do like it because I had a photo of mine critiqued by a highly regarded portrait photographer last year – which also happened to be a photo from France – and his comment was that I should experiment more with breaking up horizons and horizontals which I think I’ve done here. It seems to work. I know what he means. It’s just trying to achieve that when you on the trot with kids, the rain is coming down in lines, etc., isn’t that easy! I think it is one of those things that you have to work at until it becomes more instinctive.
