I took this photo in the Walsall Arboretum extension in March, before the rain started. I am thinking of going back there tomorrow to the historic vehicle show. Come and say hello if you’re there. I’ll be the one with the camera! My blog yesterday was about, what you would do if you won the lottery. The jackpot on the Euro-millions rolled over yet again. I haven’t decided what to do with my winnings from last night yet. I think Paul McCartney was singing on BBC1 while I was watching the draw. I missed it. That was a lucky break in itself.
I went to the Oak House in West Bromwich on Sunday and took photographs. There is always somewhere to have an afternoon out taking photos. The sun was bright and so that presented new problems. It was dark at about 1 o’clock and then the sky cleared and I had bright sunlight. You can see the light reflected off light colours and shadows in this picture. Most people stand in front of the house and get a nice symmetrical picture. You lose all depth then. I have the tree for some depth and the angle makes the house look taller on the left of the picture and smaller as it goes away from us. We have a lot of perspective.
