Heading home

A man heads home after shopping in Liverpool. I’m not 100% sure on this image. In some ways it feels like two. THe left hand side feels essentially pointless, but then at the same time its where he’s looking. There is an odd contrast of the activity on the right and the emptyness on the left. You wonder what could be beyond the emptyness that he’s looking at. Of course that might just be me trying to assign meaning to a bad photo.

Raindeerman

One of the Raindeers wandering town last week. I bet he was glad the Xmas Market didn’t do Raindeer burgers. I visited Manchester’s Xmas Market yesterday and it was pretty impressive. A lot more atmospheric than Liverpools due to its size. Very very busy too. I’m not entirely sure where else they could put it though. St Georges Hall isn’t that big a spot when you think about it. Manchester also had mini-pancakes covered in chocolate sauce and belgian waffles. Thats just not fair really.

Choosing chocolate

Another with the new D700 and 50mm f/1.8. I’m off to Manchester today to see how they do things. In other news I’ve launched a new blog. Vanilla Days is a photoblog and won’t be closing at all. The new one is simply a blog where I can discuss photography in more detail than I feel I can here. There are things I photograph that don’t fit on here, so I will be posting there. Feel free to subscribe and comment. I’ve put some info on why I switched to Nikon including some samples.

Snow falls on Church Street

Fake snow falls and while its just fairy liquid bubbles the people on the street enjoy it as it was real snow.

In other news I got a new camera. An upgrade to my Canon 30D. Its a Nikon D700. I’m one of them now. 24-70, 14-24 and 50mm f/1.8. Lovely setup. This was taken with the 50mm which produces some awesome bokeh.
