Discarded

Discarded

This shot is from the other day when I had a day off work and I took this and this.

I wandered around the village and took photos of different things that took my fancy. While walking home through the park and past the play area I spotted this discarded dolly which I think made a perfect subject for a close up.

 This shot is similar to yesterday's.

I processed it, much as I did the other, focusing on the colour and really bringing out the texture of the shot by sharpening it to death. I really liked the resulting image in its raw, textured form, reminiscent of an HDR.

As I had a day off work yesterday I nipped out in my village for a walk and I took my camera with me.

I found myself by The War Memorial on top of Castle Hill, so I stopped to take a few shots. Today's shot is of the flowers laid in front on the epitaph on one side of the memorial. I do have another shot from a much more drastic angle which I will post later.

I have been really ill (and still am pretty bad) for a while hence no photo posting.

It's incredibly hard to be in the mood to post anything when you have an illness that doesn't really let you sleep and keeps you drugged up to avoid pain.

That said I have started to feel a bit like my old self recently but I do relapse so it's all far from over.
