I’m not sure if the lady on this narrowboat would be pleased with this photograph of not. I think people would be able to recognise her from the photo and that’s what is needed when photographing events. (more…)
When you’re taking photos for a competition, you want a nice scene for a landscape, but you usually want your subject in sharp focus. You get sharp focus with a wide aperture. For this shot I needed a fast shutter speed too. (more…)
I have taken this shot many times, but I wanted a shot for a competition and so waited for just the right light and went to take this shot about an hour before sunset. I was lucky that guy was there fishing! (more…)
In theory, competition and supply and demand should regulate prices in a free market. In practice that isn’t the case. There are monopolies and cartels. There can be a lack of competition. There can be government interference in the market, such as the government’s ‘help to buy scheme’; that can distort the property market. An increased money supply can also mean increased demand.
Imagine you had to buy meat at the butchers because no one else sold it. If the prices kept going up, that could be because there was a lack of competition. If there are only two butchers on the High Street and the nearest one apart from those were 50 miles away; they might take advantage of that.
