Every now and then I need a little ‘time out’; time when I just go for a walk, camera in hand with no real purpose and yesterday was one of those days. I met up with my buddy Vince at the usual haunt (Starbuck’s, Windsor) and after downing a bath full of coffee went for a stroll.
Armed with only a little kit (camera, couple of lenses, tripod) and no plan as such we walked around taking shots of whatever took our eye.
As usual, I couldn’t resist taking a portrait; this shot of Vince is a HDR image (High Dynamic Range) and is a blend of five (5) differently exposed shots combined together.
… and this shot of the Windsor from across the River Thames, I took with my iPhone.
All in all, a much needed couple of hours; very relaxing and great for clearing the mind.
* Note to self: Don’t drink too much coffee before going for a walk!
