Yesterday, when I asked for suggestions yesterday for what I should shoot this week, I should have guessed there would be a number of requests for family/portrait stuff ;-)

So, I've decided that I'll spend a week putting up shots that feature my wife, some of which (hopefully) will be less abstract than this one. And I realise that's a bit more specific than family, which makes this a bit harder, but it's probably a bit easier than standard portraits (I did try a few shots this evening that were more portrait-like than this one, but they didn't work out). More tomorrow.

I'm a fan of this kind of shot: it's details like this that add together to make up so much of the feel of a time and place, but are easily forgotten.

It's been ages since I've come to your site to sit in awe at your photos. (too much work, no time for anything!) and I'm glad to see you're still posting outstanding images. Keep up the good work !

Really like this. Kind-off abandons the rule of thirds and I really like it - nicely composed. Lovely clarity...its just great.

Nice shot! Inside the glass I can see a person... The spouse?

Very enjoyable David. This has a great balance and use of colour, and the classic thirds composition works well to hold the pictures within the picture.

peter crymble and fraxinus.. I'm confused now.. Is this photo using the rule of thirds or not?

Gosh! I've just seen your whole blog and to tell you the truth I'm amazed!! Great regards to you!!
Recently i got the idea that i would buy a camera for myslef and start taking pics..i know it;s not easy and it takes much practice to make good photos..but i got this kinda thinking..ok i'll buy one ..but what if i am bored for a month or 2 months..i know i dont have much time now cuz i got studies..and..hm..i decided not to buy a camera now..maybe for some time when i am much more sure...

Thanks everyone.

miklos: strictly speaking this bend the rule a bit, but it's close; i.e. the main point of interest is roughly on the top left intersect.

Jame: wow, that must have taken a bit of time ;-)
