A nana's love

I have been doing a lot of portraits with the studio kit recently.

This is of my mum and Emily which I promised to post for her — so here you are mum, as promised. I hope you like the shot?

Another fun shot from Loughborough Fair.

I went out with a photographer friend of mine (Roger), who's also my boss, to shoot the fair on Thursday last week. Roger spotted the teddy bears hanging on one of the stalls and immediately saw the potential for a great shot. If only you could get someone naturally interacting with the bear.

We waited for a while but even with all the crowds nothing really presented itself that night.

As I threatened to do, today's shot is from the Loughborough Fair, and I decided to concentrate on the crowds more than the rides.

I haven't really been to a fair in a while and, I must admit, I had my reservations. (Getting old, I guess?).

It was loud and crowded, but you know what? I had a great time milling about taking photos of the event. I will definitely go back next year and who knows? Maybe Mini-me will want to come along too?

OK, I may have got a little distracted by Loughborough's fair that's on at the moment.

I had meant to try out more street photography but my adventures during the afternoon I had off from work were less than successful.

After taking the front off the bottom of my car on a low wall at Newark Museum, I wasn't in the best of moods to run into a really rude, jumped-up little git on Leicester market who seemed to think I had taken his photo even without pointing the camera at him or actually looking through the viewfinder at him. Idiot!

I'm having a change of theme.

I'm going to post a few snaps from my time wandering up and down Belgrave/Melton Road during the start of the Diwali festival last night.

I'd kept threatening to go each year but didn't until now. It's was great fun and I am definitely going again next year.
