OUTER SUBURBS 93 – CAR TRANSPORTER (MONO)

 

 


.

I’ve always wanted to photograph cars on a transporter, I think I’m fascinated by the unreal angles and attitudes the cars adopt when they are packed on board – in a way I think, to me, such images are reminiscent of scenes of mayhem, carnage or destruction.  And the cars are always lashed tightly down, adding further to the feelings of harshness and unreality.

However I seem never to be in the right place at the right time to capture these images – but this passed me as I was walking the Outer Suburbs’ streets and I turned and fired at it, a single frame – not what the TG-5 is best at, but here it is.

The first image in the Outer Suburbs series, with context, is here: 1 .  Subsequent images are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 53a 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 .  Each will open in a separate window.

BEATING OF A WING

 

Today I heard the beating of a crow’s wing, and it gladdened my soul.

OUTER SUBURBS 90 – RAINY NIGHT

In my opinion (with which you may not agree), this is a picture to look deeply into, to get right in there with the darkness, the rain and the bright lights.  Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it further.

Sitting in my car, waiting, a little nervously I suppose.  I mean, there may be people like me about.  And its just before dawn, on a rainy night.

BRISTOL 131 – WALKING UP STAIRS, TOWARDS A DRAINPIPE

 

 


.
Early for an appointment in the city.  Early for an appointment to road test a camera as it happens. 

And so to roaming the streets, looking at anything and everything, taking it all in.

A dark entry beckoned, sombre stairs disappearing up into loneliness, silence, gloom and shadow. 

I found myself nervously ascending between dimly seen, decorated walls, my little camera clutched close, clutched tight as a talisman.

But enlightenment, I was heading up towards light!  I was heading up – as it happened – towards a drainpipe.

OUTER SUBURBS 75 – WALKING, JUST AROUND DAWN (MONO)

 

 


.
If you want to be out there on the cold street in the early morning, click onto the picture to open another version in a separate window and click onto that image to enlarge it further.  On the other hand, you may find cold, early morning streets of only limited appeal, and I can live with that … 🙂

Walking the winter streets, just around dawn.  Streetlights and shadows, and – at the day’s start – the first lights coming on in the houses.

And dark it was – even at 6,400 ISO, the little camera was working at 1/60th second, wide open at f2.

The first image in the Outer Suburbs series, with context, is here: 1 .  Subsequent images are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 53a 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 .  Each will open in a separate window.
