The Lockdown Logs #39 – Final Edition!

The Lockdown Logs

Dateline: June 12th 2020

Final Edition!  Whether the government like it or not, the Lockdown is more or less over for most of us, and I was BACK AT WORK TODAY!  So here’s my very first commercial shoot of the rest of my life, and the last of my Lockdown Logs (and I’m not sorry to see the end of the Lockdown!)

Dateline: June 7th 2020

Sunday evening, and I attended my very first ever ‘Drive-In Church Service.’ – with the Fujifilm X-T30 of course!  No-one actually explained that you needed to be in a car!  LOL,

But then, I’m a non-conformist anyway, so I was happy enough to sit on the grass verge outside the car park.

Traffic Light Photography.

When I drive I keep the camera beside me, usually with a medium range zoom lens fitted. When I stop at traffic lights I wind down the window and look around me.  If something interesting is happening, I shoot it.   So this was the scene today at the bottom of the Limestone Road.

I liked the symmetry of the men’s postures.

Removing the colour made the image less fussy and distracting.

So, anyway, after I’d had a word or two with Angus, the black bull, he invited me to come up the field to meet his missus. (One of them).  Perhaps he thought we humans need some herd immunity…  I declined, and said I would catch her with the telephoto lens instead.  I think he was disappointed, for he let out a mighty bellow.

I get really bored in Lockdown.
