I attended a photographic workshop led by Paul Hill and Maria Falconer.Most interesting and definatly pushed boundaries for me.
Below is the exterior of a disused telephone exchange, built using plastic panels and windows set in metal frames. The frames now have the paint peeling away, the panels have discoloured and in the windows discoloured venetian blinds can be seen.
For this piece of work I have selected certain sections of panels, distressed and changed them using a photo edit programme and then cropped.
Each picture needs to be viewed individually.
I have been experimenting with long exposure.

I have recently joined Bridport Camera club and will be entering my first competition !!!
Sharing my entered photos below- The topic is WATER.
I just Love to walk along the edge of the fleet, these boats just move about as the ebbs and flows. it is so peaceful , the silence broken by a flap of wings of the swans that inhabit the water.
Yesterday the dorset coastline experienced a strange phenomena, Advection fog.Advection fog is formed by the slow passage of relatively warm, moist, stable air over a colder wet surface. It is common at sea whenever cold and warm ocean currents are in close proximity and may affect adjacent coasts.
The photos I took yesterday so above and below the fog. It was hot above and cold below.
I live in a beautiful part of England, in the county of Dorset. Corsets coastline is part of the UNESCO world heritage Jurassic Coast.
Last evening I went for a wander to the Fleet lagoon.The Fleet lagoon lies between Chesil Beach, a large shingle barrier, and the impounded mainland Dorset shore, just west of Weymouth and the Isle of Portland. It is a natural lagoonal inlet with features of a percolation lagoon. It is largely natural, with a predominantly rural catchment and adjacent shoreline, partly because the lagoon bed and the majority of the shore has been owned and managed privately by the Ilchester Estate for over 400 years.
As you can see from my photos I was treated to a spectacular sunset.
