...but I promise to stop soon!
And yes, I've found out how to put a watermark on my photos! I took this photo in the same way as my pine tree experiment yesterday, but this time of autumn leaves.

With this one I chose a long shutter speed because the wind was blowing quite strongly. The idea was to get the branches in focus but not the leaves.

I've rejected loads of other experiments, but I'm beginning to find out what my camera can do and what it can't and what effects I get from playing around.

But to be honest, this isn't what I really want to do. I've been pursuing an online course specifically for street photography and have found one I think I'm going to enrol on. It's an 8-week course and starts next Tuesday, or again in another two months' time, starting at the beginning of January. I've almost made my mind up to go for the November one and my finger keeps hovering over that Buy Now button. I know right now I'm going to click it but am SO enjoying the anticipation.


  1. Oh so lovely, I'm not sure why people from the UK sometimes say the autumn leaves are not as vivid there as the US - this is proof otherwise! I like the effect you achieved, as you did with the trees :)

    Have a relaxing weekend - those online courses sound very exciting!

  2. I have been looking at an online street photography course for almost 2 years now, and just cannot get myself to do it. I don't know why, because I am not normally a really shy person, but asking strangers to pose for a photograph seriously intimidates me. I hope you go for it, and if you do, please do let us know how it goes.

  3. I love playing the camera and I am delighted when other people play with theirs. Fun! And the branches in focus and leaves not is a fun idea!!

  4. your course does sound great and I love what you have done here, it's such fun experimenting.
