Photo of the day

Sr-1HW.jpg

If not a first - a second for me in pic of the day. Shot on a camera phone. My new one - it has two Leica branded lenses in it - one for black and white and one for colour - ah yes - that will be why it was eye wateringly expensive. If using colour the images from the two sensors are meshed together by the software. I must say I'm astonished how good the quality of the image is - this isn't - but it will shoot RAW files - f**k me. It won't replace my 'normal' cameras but for stuff on the fly - like this image - I look forward to using it more. A picture is a picture - no matter how it was originated. Yours - I.

I like the way my eye is drawn from right to left as the scaffold pole runs away and is out of focus at the end and lots of texture with the netting. Underneath all of that what do you have......urban decay under repair? Should I be looking so close or thinking too much!
A good image indeed Iain . Paul.

As Paul said, you can’t help but be drawn along the length of the pole. Some kind of renovations? Intriguing image.

Last night - a leaving do for one of the Daily Record staff photographers. Somebody I have worked with for twenty years. On occasion I have pulled his balls out of a sling and he me.Most of the people in this picture are the cream of news photographers in west central Scotland. Some picture editors and writers to boot. It's a dying trade. Children with -IPhones - will replace us. People don't care anymore. If you're interested I'm in this picture. A dinosaur. Yours- I.

I've just had another look at this photo and all of a sudden I can see more than I did when I first looked at it.
Just right of Middle I can see two people, one may be a reflection but I'm sure one is behind the glass to the left of the window.
The reflection can't be you I because the angles are all wrong but I see two figures or do I?! I could just be looking at light playing on the glass......what is in that shot I? P.

A great picture, I'm guessing you are the gentelman in the bright shirt with the suntan, resting your left arm on that woman's leg and she has her hands on your left shoulder........yes?
