I’ve been sharing my own photos now for eighteen months so I thought the end of the year was a good time to call it a day.
If you wish, you can find the published photos by following the tag “LifeLens” on the main page of my site, or by hitting this link.
I thought I’d just round off the series by re-presenting a handful of my favourites.
Kingfishers are incredibly elusive birds. I only ever had a clear view a couple of times, only captured them this once. Mostly you just see that flash of electric blue as you realise that one just darted past.
In a sense, there’s nothing special about this shot. It didn’t require any great artistic talent to spot this. What it did require, however, was patience. I follow a brilliant photographer on here called Sandra – she posts every day some amazing photography, and we chatted briefly about this, once. How, even if you photograph a building, it’s all about patience. Even just waiting for that moment when every sod has buggered off out of the shot.
This is the last of my favourite images, and it just reminds me of the hours I used to spend, getting up at silly o’clock and just sitting still somewhere, hoping that something might happen.
