I live in Cyprus which means I have the opportunity to photograph quite a few things Nikita doesn't see in the UK which includes ships that have run aground and are now turning into lovely decaying objects that are well worth putting in front of your lens.

We did hear (allegedly) that the captain and first mate had a severe wrist-slapping over the final result - naughty boys! (You can learn more about the ship over on Wikipedia.)

I will repeat this exercise when the sea has a little more anger to it to demonstrate how one place can give a photographer ample opportunity.

They have revamped a lot of old town in Paphos but this building still has some of its original charm about it. The red frames and shutters pop against the whitewash and there's also some interesting detail when you get up close.

Move Your Feet...

I've written before about how moving your feet is an important thing for us photographers to remember and yet again, the advice has come through with the shot on the left looking better than the shot on the right and all I did was walk to the back ...

I Love An Old Door

There's just something about old doors that shout to me and as a result, I've been photographing them for quite some time now. All of the history and stories they could tell... plus, they have great designs and are much more interesting to look at ...

Consider colour for showing off the rust and black & white for harsh documentary and bad weather photography.
