A snoozy, Sunday afternoon of photography
The thing about photography is that it makes even the most dreary, damp, overcast weekend a pleasant one. I'm not sure why or how it does this: maybe it's something to do with the entire process being so often so unhurried: metering, focussing, composing, holding your breath as you gently squeeze the shutter into action. Maybe, it's the temporary darkness that comes over your vision as you bring a huge black camera to your one remaining open eye and peep intensely through its tunnely-viewfinder, at once walled away from your subject and yet, intrinsincally, a part of it as your brain records how it looks, perhaps for the first time with any accuracy.
Well, whatever. Here's a picture of a vanishing Humber Bridge.

Weddings and children...
Finally, after reading and re-reading Thomas Hardy's 'Darkling Thrush' poem (something of a tradition amongst certain members of my household) in celebration of the new year, I got round to post-processing photos from a wedding I attended a few weeks back.
There's something very similar about photographing animals and photographing children - I'm just not quite sure what.
