I suppose I’m obsessed. Which isn’t always a bad thing. It just depends where you are standing I suppose.
The night before, Murph and I went for a shoot here. We wanted to do some long exposure shooting.
As soon as we got here the weather became decidedly unpleasant.
I know you can photograph in pretty crap weather but this was even past that, especially without watersealed cameras.
So the next night, I wasn’t going to go, honest I wasn’t. But it ate at me, like a failed shoot usually does, until I had to go, to go back and have “last nights shoot”. The sky was different, there was a bit of colour, the previous night had been grey. But that’s OK, colour it is.
Anyway, this time I don’t need to go back tomorrow (maybe hehe). I’m quite happy with this one.
