It’s funny how you don’t recognise your own pictures for what they are. This picture “Coffee Stop” is an example in point. I took this shot by mistake in May 2006 with a Sigma 12-24mm wide angle zoom.The mistake was to not fully remove the lens cap from the ultra wide angle lens. I had only bought the lens five minutes before and took a series of pictures of Baldwin St in Bristol. Metadata records I took more pictures with this lens than any other in 2006.
The pictures sat on an external hard drive for about four years doing nothing. Then I rediscovered them and I did a few colour prints that got as far as the big rejected pile. The prints stayed there in the rejected pile for a couple of years.
I looked at the colour prints last week and wondered what they might look like as Lith Prints? I print one and showed it to friends yesterday who liked it, said its a Salon type picture, very modern and now (well 2006 actually).
So what does the blogosphere think as opposed to three or four Fellows of the Royal Photographic Society?
A big hello to all the new and old followers of my little blog.
