Cityscape pictures #photography

I don’t go into the city any more but a cityscape can be fascinating. I shot a few pictures in West Bromwich on Sunday which has a city atmosphere. Most towns and cities have their traditional architecture and the modern and ultra-modern architecture too.

Black Country Day disabled parking.

It is Sunday morning and once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. I nearly forgot, which is why I’m late. I missed the Wednesbury Carnival yesterday because I couldn’t find a place to park. There is a play area that they could use for disabled parking but they don’t bother so I went to Darlaston instead. I got some really good pictures on Black Country Day, so that’s all right.

Carnival time today! #photography

Yes, it is the Wednesbury carnival today, so I’m scheduling a post to publish before I go. I missed posting yesterday because I was keeping up with the news on my investments. Regular readers will know I’ve been having a terrible year but this week there are signs of improvement and I’m back making money. I’m also cheerful because it is carnival time!

Permission and approval #photography

This last weekend I managed to do some landscape photography and a few portraits. I was asked to do a portrait so had permission but in a public place, you don’t need permission to photograph people. You do need to use common sense though. You don’t take photos that are likely to cause a problem.

No permission needed

Social media: creating the content

It’s Sunday morning and here in the Black Country, the sky is blue and the sun is shining. As usual on a Sunday I’m considering where I can go to get a little exercise and take some photos. I really want to photograph people but I find it quite difficult to just go up to people and ask if I can take their photo. I suppose I could be sneaky about it and use a long lens! Anyway, I have social media on my mind and I need to create content.

Enlightenment: the pursuit of wisdom

I stopped writing about finance on Fridays because money is simply a means to an end. I enjoy photography and the experimentation that means I can create art using my camera. Anyone can create art, all you need is a pencil. Creating art that will tell a story and be popular is more difficult. Part of the difficulty is understanding what people relate to visually. Enlightenment isn’t just about learning and knowledge it is about understanding. Young people can learn and acquire knowledge. Older people combine knowledge with understanding and strive to fully appreciate the world we live in.

BRUNSWICK PARK - enlightenment is appreciating what you see.

Legends of Darts

I’m going to the Legends of Darts evening at Mecca Bingo (Wednesbury) tomorrow night. I haven’t had a good week and so a night out could be just the thing I need. I used to be an addicted darts player, playing just about every night. Due to illness, I struggle to walk far now and can’t throw the arrows but I can at least be a spectator and as I can’t throw, I can at least shoot a few photos!

Delving into the archive. #photography

I have an archive of photographs on my hard drive and also one on my website server and I have flash drives and external disk drives too. I can delve into these archives when I need a photo to promote something in particular. I created a vectored graphic logo to overlay onto photos of my local park to use on the Facebook page. I want to raise the profile of the park and encourage people to use it.

Discovering art #photography #art

We all have our own ideas of what it is that we like to see. I know people who would never even consider going to an art gallery because they don’t have art that they can identify with. A lot of art in art galleries is elitist. We don’t really want to see portraits of the lords and ladies who think they are our betters. Poor people do actually buy art for their homes but not elitist art. They buy pictures of scenes and they buy pictures of their animals. They also like images from the past. I’m discovering art by finding out what the proletariat like.

Welcome to Wednesbury #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you, such as they are. I’m planning another outing to take photos because I think it’ll be a nice day. On Friday the 6th of July, which is just over 2 weeks time, I’m having an evening out at Mecca Bingo in Wednesbury for their Legends of Darts evening. It’s not that often I go out in the evening so that’ll make a nice change. We will welcome to Wednesbury, four champion dart players.

The Bloomsbury Group – a phenomenon

The Bloomsbury Group was a group of associated English writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists, the best-known members of which included Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey. This loose collective of friends and relatives were closely associated with Cambridge University for the men and King’s College London for the women, and they lived, worked or studied together near Bloomsbury, London, during the first half of the 20th century.
