Daddy's girl

Nik decided she wanted this shot in today's post.

I was looking at processing a shot with lots of runners in from the Race for Life 2008 to illustrate the turnout of people there and to give an idea of the 'feel' of the race. I may post that one later.

You may notice I have been processing a lot of shots in black and white at the moment. What can I say? I really am enjoying this look for my photos. I did read (I think it was Jeff Ascough – a favourite photographer of my friend Ian) that he almost always makes more black and white images than colour. I seem to have phases where one minute I prefer the drama of mono and then the other I want the intesity of colour. As Jeff goes on to say it all depends on the shot. Colour can sometimes distract rather than work with a composition.

Today is quite a special day on imagi. I have put enough photos up to fill my 'views' in the blog section. Filling the site has happened quite quickly actually as I usually try to post something every couple of days, be it old or new. It is nice though to get more new shots up rather than the old favourites from imagi v3.

As far as imagi goes I still have quite a bit to do to the site but I can work on it gradually now rather than intensively changing things. It would be nice to get new themes up (black espcially to go with today's shot) but the rush is over.

I'd rather get out there and take more photos. :)

As for the shot – as you can guess it is my Noo with her dad after the Race for Life. Nik's dad Malc is a great runner so it was a poignant moment watching father and daughter.

The funny thing is my Nik always said she would never run and moaned at her father for all the running he did. Tut, tut, Noo! ;)
