Where: Mowsbury Park, Bedford, Bedfordshire, UK
Who: Self Portrait
While in Bedford I took a wrong turn on my way home and went past a local park called Mowsbury. What caught my eye was not the goal posts but a few trees (typical me) with lovely copper leaves still on them and a snowy backdrop. By the time I had got out of the car the snow started falling really heavily. At one point I could barely see where I was going as I was snapping away at these bronze leafed trees. As I walked further toward the trees I saw the goal posts.
By the time I started to pack up a lovely gent passed by and struck up a conversation. He had five white poodles with little jackets on. I got a shot of them too. After lots of questions later it turned out that he knew someone who was a serious amateur who had just passed away and wanted to sell their medium format equipment. I left him my number and am now waiting to hear back as to find out what this equipment is. The things that happen when your out shooting.
I hope you like it.
