As a blog virgin this is a new experience - a whole new world, with new horizons and opportunities opening up before me. So here goes……..
We collected outside the underground station with bated breath as each of us steadily arrived. Bd with his brand new lens and Katie with her new camera, collected from the post office 3 hours earlier a fully charged battery and no SD card – Bd to the rescue from somewhere in the depths of his back pack a spare SD card magically appears.
To the main event – a Saturday morning in Covent Garden three weeks before Christmas. A sobering event to any grown man, BUT we are not shopping and this made all the difference.
We finished our drinks, resolved to meet up in an hour and scattered to the four corners of the garden each setting off purposefully with the aim of capturing the perfect moment………..
So…. what to capture?
This was my favourite artist. The eyes especially came to life as he sculpted from the photo in the background.
A small attempt to capture the atmosphere....
The Food & the Colour
We all had a good morning, Patrick Litchfield won’t lose any sleep but we all had a good go and achieved some pleasing if not earth shattering results. Luca had a couple of really nice compositions ready to show us, but I suspect that he spent his last 10 minutes photo-shopping on his laptop – and we had come out to get away from shopping! They were good shots none the less.
The morning was a great opportunity to stop and to step out of time with the express purpose of pitting yourself against, people, composition and light.
To top it all we finished with CPs – that can’t be bad.
