Sun flare, but no feet!

My latest batch of negatives popped through the letterbox today so I busied myself scanning them this evening to share with you. As usual I had successes and failures. My first shot was supposed to be a photo of my feet walking towards the camera, while Kevin opened and closed the shutter. Sadly my feet are nowhere to be seen! I think I probably needed to move less during the 15 second exposure, but the flare from the late afternoon sun is so dramatic that I figured I’d share it anyway.

The following day I spent an hour in Alsa Woods. This was my first walk there in months as it’s been so relentlessly wet that I feared I’d disappear into the mud without trace! On this occasion the ground had frozen overnight so I could walk with confidence and I found some good pinhole subjects among the bare trees.

I always try to photograph this twisted tree - I think I've finally found the best way to capture its twistyness!

The days which followed my stroll in the woods were wet, yet again, so I sought out photos around the house – a selfie with a cup of coffee and a couple of portraits of Lucy. I couldn’t quite persuade her to sit still for half a minute but I rather like the ghost cat images which have resulted.

My final photo from this roll of film was shot in the local spinney, featuring some beech leaves – the only foliage persistent enough to remain on the trees at this time of year.

I really like #1 and its magical look. I'm guessing that this project is interesting for you because you take the photos, but you're not really sure what you'll get.

Poor little 'flat faced' Lucy in #7  I prefer the way she normally looks.
