Spire bridge-2

Spire bridge-2, Here’s my alternative view (as promised) of the new bridge in Sunderland, I’d wished I could have been a bit higher! Have a look at a previous blog post to pick your favourite, sorry it’s not a competition, well it is for me I suppose!!

Different stuff used on this one, so for the gearheads-Nikon D800e, PCE 45mm, Benro-big tripod (that’s a tech term!), ND4 filter, 120sec exposure-I wished my iPod still worked, hi-vis jacket-note to self, I need a new belt for my pants, also for the people following “hat gate” as you can see I still haven’t found the hat, sporting a little red number!!

Spire Bridge

There’s a new bridge across the River Wear and it’s called the Spire Bridge. I’ve seen quite a few attempts at photographing it but not from the view point I chose. This view required a bit of map reading and a recce, all worth it when I ended up with the final image. Oh! and before I forget, I’ll make it public knowledge that I’ve another view, which is from another angle I’ve not seen before – the pressure’s on!

Karen Walker Design

It’s been a while since my last upload, but I’m back with Karen from Karen Walker Design and images for her new website!

Karen is an immensely talented local interior designer, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with her and creating images of her work for a few years now. My approach for this project has always been to work with the natural (or artificial light), arrangement and colour of the interior whilst focusing on the key design features of Karen’s work. That doesn’t mean these images aren’t lit, the majority are, but in subtle ways that don’t detract from the overall goal – fantastic interior design!

You can view more work undertaken for Karen here.

World Cup flags

World Cup fever was with us, but hang on, we’ve still got a third place play off to go, but meanwhile back in the shires, World Cup flags are a common sight and these examples are from the superfans! Also if you’ve been paying attention, my previous posts have declared that England would win the World Cup, BTW I say this every four years, hoping one day this will come to pass, I’m forever the optimist-when it comes to footy, so never mind the third place playoff, in two years we’ll win the Euro’s!! COM’ON ENGLAND!(but good luck to everyone else. I’ve got to say this has been the best World Cup I’ve ever watched, and I’ve seen a few!)
Hang on this is a Photography blog! Stuff used on this one, Nikon D800e, 24 and 45 PCE lenses, Firecrest big stoppa, Big Benro Tripod with 401 manfrotto geared head. Seeya mb
