  • Sun and moon

    Yesterday evening I had to drive the Mayor to Porthcawl for an event and I then had a couple of hours to kill. So, of course, I had to take some photos. And these are the results, from sunset to moon rise. All taken with E-M5 and 14-150mm.

    I can understand how you get soooooo bored just waiting around, Roger
    A great way to enjoy your work and hobby together. Looked fairly late when you left?
    The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

      Some drivers complain about having to wait around for hours, but not me - so long as I've got a camera with me, which I nearly always have (at least two, if not more!).

      Well, it was certainly after 9.00 when we left. I think it was about 10.00, which means getting home about 11.30 by the time I've taken the Mayor home, taken the car back to the garage and driven my car home.

        A wonderful way to pass the hours and you also get paid to practice your hobby, what a perk! ... does the Mayor need a backup driver?

        Great shots, Roger.

          Thanks Mark. It is indeed a great hardship to be paid for being out and about taking photos. I'll pass your CV on to the Mayor.

            I can see what a hardship it must be Roger, but then I guess someone has to do it don't they...

                Just shows that if you are a photographer there is never a need to waste time or kill time, because time itself is the raw material with which you work, honing and chiselling it until only a tiny fraction remains, and those fleeting hundreths of seconds in skilled hands say more than the original hours from which they were fashioned.
                John

                "A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there � even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity." ~ Robert Doisneau
