Man: – Self Portrait.
Where – Leighton Buzzard
I had just dropped off my daughter at 9am to school and needed to run a few errands. Most of the fields harvested, bailed and been ploughed over, but this one was a joy to the eye as I passed it on my motorbike. An idea formulated in my head and I sped off to finish my errands ASAP.
I needed to pick up my daughter at 3.30pm and it was 2.09pm before I managed to get back to the house and my camera equipment.
I rushed back to the field and the changing light I had seen earlier had gone but this light was rapidly changing due to the bigger clouds. I trundled off down the field looking for a POV set up and changed into my vintage garb only to see a couple (possibly up to no good ;-) standing staring at me in the middle of a field in my under ware changing into vintage clothing with camera equipment. They didn’t hang around long!
I set my Hahnel interval timer to shoot every ten secs and went off jumping on every hay bail in different poses. By now the time was 3pm and it was starting to rain so I called it quits and picked up my daughter just in time.
I didn’t expect much from what I’d taken as I hand;t written down the idea my sketch book as I normally do and really had less time than I would have liked but it’s funny how things work out sometimes.
I hope you like it.
