An unconventional stroll by the sea…

by mjpichette

This shot was a gift. As we walked out of the house yesterday, I saw this young gentleman practicing his parkour skills on the rail. Luckily, I had my camera with me. There is a double triumph here. He is able to stroll along the rail with ease… I was able to get my camera out fast enough to document it! I didn’t actually change the contrast here. The sun had already taken care of that for me.

Parkour Triumph!

Here are some more photos of his practice.

It is amazing what we can see just outside our door!

Precious

Paul and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary this Easter weekend. It seemed only fitting to choose our wedding rings as our Treasure. Our rings were designed by a local artist in Lausanne, Switzerland. They are made from silver and local wood, and we had the pleasure of helping to design them. The boxes that hold them are made from the same wood.

It Feels Like Spring Today

It’s Good Friday today. The first day of the Easter holidays and the first day it has really felt like spring. It is still a bit chilly, but the promenade is full of people walking, and families are enjoying the beach… Perhaps that is why the nearby park at Palmeira Square is almost deserted today.

Moment & Motion

Getting an interesting shot of a subject in motion was really challenging! I tried panning my camera across the scene to follow this¬†bicyclist. I’m pretty happy with this shot, but it took dozens of attempts before I could get anything decent. There were lots of cyclists out tonight… so lots of opportunity to practice photographing people in motion.

Crossing

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.

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!

Mother’s Day in Brighton

It was cold today, but that didn’t stop a multitude of families from enjoying a walk along the seaside.
