Daily Photo Weekly Wrap-Up: Week 46

Several days this week were really rainy, windy, just kind of miserable. The kind of light and shadows that this sort of weather can bring sometimes is pretty fabulous though:

Welcome to this week’s instalment of my daily photographic record. Posts in this series will be photos from the week before, roughly Friday through Friday. This, once a week, wrap-up post will publish on Sunday. The photos for this post will be in a gallery format, they will have all been taken on my phone. The captions on the photos will be an indication of the photo-editing software used to edit them, or simply “as-shot” for those that are unedited.

Writing a weekly wrap up with a gallery is a way for me to gather my thoughts on what has caught my attention in the previous week. It will be a way of filtering through what I am thinking about photographically. I’ll also be able to come back to these posts and look at what trends emerge over time.

As with all my posts, your comments are welcome. I appreciate your interaction with my work here on this blog. It is my intention to publish in this series on Sunday. Every Sunday that is possible. Looking at my year, I already know there are some weeks where I will not be close enough to my technology to make a post possible. In an effort to keep this project pleasant for myself, I won’t be attempting catch-up posts.

Hope to see you in the comments below and in this space next week!

Cheers!

January Squares: Light a Candle, Say a Prayer

I love looking through churches and coming across lit candles. I’ve always associated candlelight with prayer:

ISO 320 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/17sec

I tend to like to edit photos like these in Hipstamatic. In this case, The Jane lens filter has been added:

ISO 320 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/17sec

The Instagram version is here:

Added to January Squares, Day 12.

Daily Photo Weekly Wrap-Up: Week 45

This week was a bit different. I didn’t get a lot of shots but what I did get, I liked. It was an interesting experience, but odd, I usually take many more shots than I did this week:

January Squares: Seek the Light

In honor of Epiphany, today I am posting a photo of light in the spiritual sense:

ISO 100 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/33 sec

I walk a lot and frequently stop into churches along the way. This was where I found these wise men a few weeks back. They were placed in a back window of the church to indicate that they were on their journey, today will find them in the Nativity scene near the front of the church.

My square edit was done in Hipstamatic and has the Jack London lens and standard flash filters added:

ISO 100 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/33 sec

Daily Photo Weekly Wrap-Up: Week 44

Because I was thinking about the January Squares challenge a lot this past week, I guess it is no surprise that most of my photos were processed in Hipstamatic and feature light as an important element. None of these has yet been featured in that challenge, but one or two might before the end of the month:

January Squares: Flight

This was a photo that I just happened upon:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.2m 1/8500 sec

Having spent the day at Waddesdon Manor and walking back to our car, a spitfire flew overhead. This is the edited version:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.2m 1/8500 sec

Created in Hipstamatic with the Florence lens and Sussex film filters. What this photo needed most was the crop. This photo is really about a beautiful summer sky.

The Instagram post is here:
