Feeling a bit devoid of inspiration today, so thought I would give today's photo a title that made the image seem a bit more interesting than it actually is.

Sometimes I go out on a shoot and don't get around to looking through all the RAW files; they just sit on my hard drive and wait for a day when I do have time to look at them and process them. I'm glad I keep them all, and don't delete the ones that one first glance don't look "right" to me. This is one of the files that if I was a deleter may have gone to the big recycle bin in the sky before I processed it:

Today's been a day for processing images from past shoots that I've not gotten round to yet. Some dated from early February! I really need to get on top of things, especially if sales are on the agenda this year. The ones from February were particularly worth it though - I love photographing things in lemonade!

Quiet day today to start the long weekend. Spent the morning at work, then down to the beach with C for a walk (and to play some pinball in the arcade, of course!). I was having a lovely and lazy afternoon, so decided to take the light tent out into the back garden for a little while for a bit of an experiment. Did it work? Unsure. Do I like the shots? Yes.

Met with A, A and H for a lovely meal at a local Italian restaurant - great food, great company, and great laughs. After that, we headed to St. Mary's for some night shots (well, we WERE right along the road from it - would have been rude not to!). I've never taken night shots there before, so am happy to say I have two out of the 10 or so I took that I'm rather pleased with.

A departure from my recent stuff. This is a bit more back to my comfort zone. I've been enjoying my adventures in photography a great deal lately, and believe it or not I found it difficult to return to the comfort zone. Didn't feel quite so comfortable - so I guess my photographic adventures are working!
A. and I headed down to Newcastle's Quayside for some night shots. Had hoped to have more folks with us so we could have more of a roam - safety in numbers and all that - but due to the following day's outing to Thirsk for the birds of prey shoot, we were the only two brave (stupid?) enough to go out.

Headed to Alnwick today with A for our first shoot at Barter Books. What a fabulous place; a bookworm's treasure trove. It's a virtual Aladdin's Cave, full of volumes upon volumes of books on all manners of subjects. It's a place where visitors are encouraged to pick up a book, curl up in front of the coal fire, and have a good old read. Heaven. Have a look at their website. The first shot is the main reading room, and the second is looking up from my vantage point flat on the floor in the children's area.

Still processing shots from Sunday's wanderings. This, along with the "Get Carter" image I posted on Monday, are probably my favourite shots of the day. There is something screaming to me in this image, although silently. The car park is now in its death throes:
