After wandering around looking for colour and being only somewhat successful, I again surprised myself by going for the unexpected shot. I’ve always liked the way traffic lights look at night – especially in the rain. This isn’t quite night, and it isn’t raining, but I like the way the red plays against the bluish background.

Weekend Light Show

by mjpichette

Saturday morning started out cloudy and grey. I didn’t get the camera out until early afternoon. By then, the sun had started to make an appearance. There was a bit of light showing through the clouds in the late afternoon… but by the “golden hour” the clouds had completely covered up the sun.

Perhaps better luck on Sunday…

Well, the early part of the day was looking pretty grey…

Good things come to those who wait… Just before 5 pm I went out in search of the elusive golden hour… Several photographers joined me for the show!

The Doorway

Dark alley

We’re lucky to have this lovely, dark alley just around the corner from our flat. My idea was to have my husband walk down the alley with a torch and snap some photos of the light produced… but when we got there, we found this spooky open door… it was perfect!

The Alchemy of Light

Sunset is a magical time, when everything feels warmer and golden light shimmers on the sea. The benches are painted green but turn to gold at sunset.

Brighton Rocks

I’m generally not fond of a shingle beach. I like to swim, and the stones make it hard to get into the water. I have sensitive feet. The beach here can be quite beautiful, however. The warm colours belie the true temperature. It is quite chilly today!

UPDATE: Since someone mentioned the sound of the stones, I thought I’d go out and record them. You can hear the sea as well. It’s a binaural recording so sounds better with headphones.

I set out this morning looking to photograph something BIG. I found many things that I thought would make interesting photos… but in the end, this big shovel won my heart! I love the strong angles and the way the bright orange contrasts with the bright blue sky.

Spring Preview

by mjpichette

The sun was shining this weekend, leading to leisurely walks by the sea and visits to cute cafes. Seeing the crocuses blooming on the lawns made me feel like spring is on its way!
