1888

I took this photo 5 years ago. (November 03, 2011, 5:06pm)

It’s one of those photos you take at the time, then just put aside; at the time it was just part of several images I took while walking along the northern and then the western side of City Hall, none of which were ever processed or shown to anyone.

I found a few dates about the building to be interesting; proposals for the construction of a Town Hall were endorsed in 1886, a design was chosen in 1887, and works completed in 1889, yet in the wrought iron fretwork design above this northern doorway is the year “1888”.

2015 Deck – Week 31

I had mentioned somewhere (might have been Facebook) that as artists (photographer, artist… whatever) we find the strangest subjects to focus our attention upon.

This photo and the way I took it is nothing new, others have done it before, many others will do it again, but I like it!

2015 Deck – Week 21

Every year I seem to complain that I don’t get enough time for my photography, and yet every year I seem to have a few thousand exposures resulting in several gigabytes of images stored away on a hard-drive, and in there somewhere are usually a few images that I think are worth the time and effort that I put into this passion of mine.

If I have one really good image a year, that should be enough, right?  🙂

This year I’ve been experimenting with Instagram, confining myself to the combination of taking the image with the phone, processing it in Instagram and using the square crop; not exclusively, as I still shoot with the DSLR, but a small experiment to see what would evolve, and surprisingly I’ve rather enjoyed it so far.

This week I use another of those images for the Deck Project.

Framed Flora

Taking time away from the images can be a good thing… but it’s important to actually go back to them, because if you don’t, it becomes a matter of “out of sight, out of mind”…

I was looking for a certain Mashramani photo this morning in my 2010 photo library… and I stumbled across this image…

This day was a good one, I really have to sort out a few more images from it 🙂

Pigeon on Square

I think using a particular theme as a guide for a period is a good idea, I am keeping it at the back of my mind while shooting, but not letting it dictate the photos in general, so while I am shooting the things I see and like, I am also on the lookout for the thematic image as well.

This one I had driven past and then reversed quickly to get the shot, luckily it was a Sunday so the traffic was a bit light 🙂

Obviously, the square is the window… but those colours!!!  I love the Caribbean for scenes like this 🙂

From the Bandstand

Sheltering from a light rainfall, I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of this gentleman walking on the wall… the rain didn’t bother him, and here he’s even taking a drink out of that bottle 🙂

A place to rest

As the year draws to a close, I think that while we’re celebrating the end of a year, be it a successful one or just surviving one with our sanity intact, we should reflect on what we have, what we should be thankful for and what we have accomplished, whilst still looking forward to what is to come in the new year.

We should also remember those who are not as fortunate as we are, who have lost loved ones, those who have lost their jobs, those who have lost their homes, those who have lost their sanity (I often joke about coming close to doing that myself, but thankfully, it’s just a joke).  If you want to give to those who are in need, give selflessly, give anonymously, give generously.
