My husband, Rob,Â has an enviable talent for photography andÂ takes photos on a regular basis. That’s one of his photos on the right there, although in this size it doesn’t really do it justice.
He’s won a few Photo Friday challengesÂ which is where the PhotoFriday webÂ site gives a word out on a Friday (for example ‘Feminine’) and then photographers submit a photo they have taken recently which they feel most reflects the meaning ofÂ this word. Any visitors to the PhotoFriday siteÂ can vote on their favourite photo and, at the end of the week, the person with the most votes wins.Â He alsoÂ has his own website, Shifted Exposure, where he posts the photos he feels merit critical scrutiny by other people in the know.
Whilst, I am always impressed by the quality of the shots he takes, there are some that I prefer more than others. The one I’ve included in this blog, above, is one of them (it was taken at Terminal 1 in Toronto Airport). Another one I absolutely love is this one he had taken recentlyÂ of a pumpkin patchÂ at New Paltz in the US. I was inÂ Rabi at the time but apparently Tim and Rob had drivenÂ down there after work one Friday to go climbing the next day. They were too late to find a camp site and so slept in a car park in the van, and then when they got up the next morning, the sight of this fieldÂ is what greeted them. I think it is one of my all time favourites. It reminds me of the film The Wizard of Oz.
