As you say, should be plenty of interest and let’s start with one from someone who has not posted before: Les Simpson has asked for this to be posted on his behalf. So where is everyone else?June 1, 2015 at 9:32 pm #9836
Well I am in Haines Car museum–Yeovil.June 2, 2015 at 10:47 am #9837
Thanks Les for posting your first picture. Hope this is one of many and that it encourages a few more people who I know read this but don’t post to have a go.
I think the picture packs a lot of information into one shot, but because it is well composed it doesn’t feel confusing or cluttered. We have three motorcycles clearly identifiable and the two (I forget the scale is it 1/4 they build to?) model steam engines across the front. The two chaps discussing things finish things of nicely, pity one of them is hidden a bit by the steam. The background sets the scene without attracting too much attention. Nice shot!June 2, 2015 at 2:10 pm #9839
Well done les nice to see you put something on. Like the mono and the diagonal shot, as well as the ancient and modern modes of transport. I know I still have problems uploading so perhaps on an open night a quick tutorial might be handy.June 4, 2015 at 9:16 am #9854
Three offerings for you. The first incorporates two means of transport and so does the second, the third features the mode of transport usually most available to us.
This last one is a slight cheat as it was taken a while back but since there is no element of chance or timing (I could easily have repeated it) I thought I might be forgiven.
It is amusing to ruminate on why the last picture looks so odd!June 4, 2015 at 3:44 pm #9859
I like your thinking John especially the last one, shanks’s pony is usually left out. The only thing is as my mum used to say to my brothers, “Your trousers look as though they’ve divorced your ankles and married your knees.” I probably the angle, but it’s made me smileJune 4, 2015 at 4:07 pm #9860
That is one of the odd things about the appearance of the last one! The answer is that I was sitting down at the time, as you are suggesting.June 4, 2015 at 5:48 pm #9861June 6, 2015 at 11:22 pm #9877
