I was never a avid photographer. 'And you ain't one now!' I almost can hear some of you scream. 'Have you look back at some of the blurry ill-composed stuff you've posted in the past?' Fair dues. I never got accustomed to hauling around an SLR camera and all the related gubbins. I tried for a while to get the bug but I couldn't remember to take the blooming thing with me. Even if I did, once I'd got it out of its case and worked out the exposure and focus I'd have missed the moment. Such a pfaff. But since mobile phones have had half decent lenses I've become an avid snapper. They're a breeze to carry and it's so easy to point, shoot and create a rather pleasing record of life And in amongst all those wonky images I'll occasionally produce something that's more than halfway decent.
I'm very taken by this shot from yesterday. We were making the most of the last of these summer evenings and had popped out to bagsie one of those rhinos on the other side of town. I looked out over the marina and was struck by the quality of light and how it intensified the colours of everything around us. This picture hasn't been retouched in any way. Honest!
