It's All In The Detail

8 Jun 2014 1:24PM   Views : 472 Unique : 340

We're just back after a holiday in Lincolnshire, a week of houses, castles, gardens, wildlife centres.....and I was thinking about how I tend to be looking for the detail rather than the overall scene. Obviously there are exceptions, but everywhere there are so many tiny parts of the whole that make for fantastic photo opportunities. A cornice, a plant pot, an archway, whatever it is could be a superb subject. I've only just started processing images, but here's a few examples of what I have so far. The locations are Belton House and Grimesthorpe Castle, the latter providing an exception by being the whole scene.

The Amazing Dalbeattie Museum Trust

This is a small but packed museum in Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway. It covers a couple of floors in a corner shop location and is packed with artefacts, the bad news for us being that many of them are things that we have owned or used as youngste...

Golden Slumbers

There's an exhibitions of Egypt's Golden Mummies at Manchester Museum, and we went down to see it this afternoon. I travelled very light this time, in the end using just the Pentax MX-1 compact camera. The conditions were very dark and the exhibits l...

I am the complete opposite ! !

But when I sometimes do the detail shots I just wish I did more of them ! !
