Even though I am retired and technically have all the time in the world (which I do really!) my use and application of it seems to watch the sand fall through my fingers!
What with looking after the Grandchildren over the school holidays and other mundane “housekeeping” stuff of life, I find my time for the “art” stuff I want to do…photography, music, writing, reading etc is squeezed all the time. This means I flit like the proverbial butterfly from one thing to another.
My photography is my main interest…so that suffers less and I can do it whenever really.
So anyway…enough of me moaning (and apologies to those with 12 hour a day jobs etc) here are some photographs!!
Okay, I think that’s enough for now..I think they are all from about 3 different days of shooting!
I’m pretty certain they are all using the Fuji X100F (although the second image of the blonde girl on the wall was my X-T2).
Hope you like my latest Street Photography work.
As always, please comment and share as you feel appropriate. I am also happy to answer any questions you may have about equipment, technique or tips.
This was the first Pride March I had attended in Newcastle (or anywhere else for that matter). I am not sure exactly how many have been on in the city..but I know there have been a few. I also shot some video, so will do a Youtube pic/video production when I can. Editing video takes ages!
It was a great day for a march. Very hot and sunny. I don’t know the exact numbers but many thousands attended. The march went down Northumberland Street in the city then across town to a local park where there were amusements set up, with a music tent, stalls and basically a place to gather and have a full time. The march was very colourful and represented the whole LGBT community. I was taken as to how many businesses and companies were keen to represent themselves and basically take part in the march.
The over riding thing for me was how many smiling faces there were!! Everyone was enjoing themselves from marchers to some amazed shoppers and bystanders. Let’s face it flamboyance was def the theme of the day.
I did manage to get some great images. Here is a flavour of the day.
Many more images from the day available on my various social media places.
