Getting that ‘Photo of the Month’ – Part 1

Well with hospital and general ill health, no real photography had been done at all this month.

This simply would not do, so two quick photo trips were planned to try and get that ‘Photo of the Month’.

The first was a quick 30 minute excursion at lunch time on Friday, a quick walk around the Brayford Wharf area of Lincoln with my trusty Nikon D200 and a 105mm f/2.8 macro lens, trying to get that elusive ‘Photo of the Month’.

A few macro shots of flowers, some ants and the odd snap of the building work currently being undertaken were all I managed at first, but then I attempted to sneak up to some black headed gulls that were sat on the edge of the Brayford Pool.  I managed a few quick shots before they took off, and I nearly got my ‘Photo of the Month’ as it flew off, it was just slightly out of focus.

I also popped into one of the offices there and shot a few portraits of some of the more interesting characters.

The second, trip well, I’ll tell you all tomorrow.
