In the richness of time available to the busy people that rush around us each day, and the quest for riches that maybe beyond our wildest dreams, we the grey people on the fringes quail in the attitude of frenzy that leaves us in the hedgerows of pedestrian life.
The angst that many people who are engaged on the treadmill of commercialism find to be part of their everyday life, bewilders us, as we quietly wander our life course armed with nothing more that a Nikon MF lens attached to our humble camera.
The grey days that beset us are there only to try our creative abilities, sometimes winning out as we fail and fall into obscurity, leaving the way for many around us with higher expectations and abilities. It is not for us to become discouraged by this state of indifference, but to take the day by the lapels and shake some sort of image out of it. Bringing, if not satisfaction, then, and wry grin that says at least we tried.
As we wander the streets and lanes of the world at large we are confronted with images and possibilities that make us in one instant Constable, then Picasso, then Monet, and then even Damien Hirst. Or perhaps just the tapestry of life engraves itself upon our minds and leaves us a little richer as the artist we have become at whatever level we find ourselves. Whatever our endeavour we try our best and find that we are in the company of like minded individuals who share the passion for our given art. For art it is, and whatever form it takes, no one can argue that there is not an art in wielding a manual focus lens on the front of our favoured body of capture.
(what a pretentious load of bu****it)
Just get back to reality Steve !!!
Inspired by Leightons neighbourhood pictures I was out this morning in the rain .... oh yes ... it was RAINING !!!
Using the 25-50 f4 @ f11 ISO200
Note that the autumn colours have not really arrived yet due to no frost to date ....
But did I mention the rain .... well it was doing plenty of that.
