Spring Blossom, Wokingham

Spring Blossom, Wokingham, Berkshire March 2018

Time passes. I think we have all noticed that. Recently, on my morning walks, I have noticed some trees blossoming. But this photo is from three years ago. It was just a quick grab photo on my way to work. As you can see the light was very bright and contrasty, which made the blossoms stand out against the dark tree. Only the week before, there had been quite heavy snow, so the rapid change was quite remarkable. As I walked past, it was a quick snap with my iPhone and then on.

Morris Men, Wokingham

This is an example of a “found” photo, I was walking to the supermarket, when I came upon these men dancing outside my local pub. The UK can be like that – nearly everywhere is.

If I were to give this a little more time, I would like to bring the sky in a little more, since it was twilight and it would give a truer impression of what it was like.

Walking in Snow

Snow, Wokingham – March 2018

Last year, as we were almost past Spring, the clouds suddenly emptied a layer of snow on us. I can remember looking out my classroom window and seeing large snowflakes cartwheeling down the window to the ground.

I love walking at night, Berkshire can be quite urban, so that is when it is quietest. I wasn’t particularly expecting to take photos, so I took my RX-100. The original is in colour, but I think I prefer it in black and white.
