Most of the week seems to have been taken up with sorting through the images I took at the Maelstrom Parade and getting them down to Theatre Modo. They are now displayed on one of their 'facebook' pages along with the imaged of the other volunteer photographers.
We learnt last week of the death of Jim Flett a member for over 30 years and 'Zoom In' in the Fraserburgh Herald. Go to the meeting report
It is amazing what a difference a tripod makes to getting a sharp image. Yesterday on my morning walk the sun was shining and the leaves were sparkling with autumn colours of browns and golds mixing with greens and the blue of the sky. I took some photographs and was disappointed to find that all of them showed signs if camera shake. Today I went armed with my tripod and all was well. The day before I was in the 'secret walled garden near where I live and , without a tripod came home with some nice sharp images, and some apples which will become chutney very soon. Unfortuneatley I didn't keep the blurred ones to show you. But here are some of the sharp ones.
I stood on that road for as long as I could waiting for something, someone, to fill in the scene. Nothing and no one did. So I put one in. It doesn't look quite right does it.
There is a great photographic exhibition on at the Lighthouse Museum in Fraserburgh. Fiona McRae's images of the area are quite stunning and well worth a visit. Its a great pity the her life is so busy that she is unable to join FPS.
Following normal custom and practice here are some images I have taken during the week
