Snow baby!, Denmark Street, Bristol

    Newer Older

    About time, too.

    I broke three or four rules of photography that I set for myself. 1) Never get too excited about something to the extent of ruining photo cause your hands shaking. 2) Never use flash in the streets, especially when there's a perfectly lit streetlamp around. 3) I don't know, 4 sounded like a good number of rules to have. 4) Stop making stuff up on the spot.

    Anyway, thrilled and excited etc. Snow. A bunch of us made snowballs and fought. My gloves were soaked through and fingers were freezing and yet... My friend socked me on the ear with a viciously large snowball. For the next few days, I am going to concentrate on getting my balance back, and my hearing with it.

      Rules unlike lenses could be broken.

      Lovely! The snowflakes and the light are so pretty. How come you didn't upload those other two photos to your stream? I like both of them, but my favorite is the first one you posted.

      As said before, I am glad you broke your rules. That's a lot of fun to do!

      Thanks Krissy. Yeah, I am glad I broke rules as well.
      I did upload the the two to my stream, but I kept it private - I am being very selective these days on what kind of photos I want to display. Just a phase I am going through. ;)

      Hmm, well, it is your choice I suppose....however, if it were public I would fav it because I really like it, and I could probably stare at for a long time. I like that one better than the other one you didn't post because everything is sharper and it almost looks like bits of fire are falling down with the snow. And I like it better than the one you have posted because it's more abstract, though I really like it as a street scene. Not like I'm trying to convince you or anything... ;-)
