Manchester

So, I blinked first!

Everyone’s favourite tram stop in Manchester and all the better in the rain for the reflections. We all took turns in shooting from here such is the constant stream of trams passing through. I would love to shoot this in the evening with the street lights on, or a foggy wet evening.

Bibury, Gloucestershire

After Stonehenge on the Saturday we went for a drive up to Diddly Squat Farm Shop on the Sunday. If you’ve never watched Clarkson’s Farm (three series so far) then you’re missing a great series. He’s done more to show the realities and problems that British farmers face every season than 20 years of Countryfile… and it’s so much more entertaining in a way that only Jeremy Clarkson can present, but that’s by the by.

On the way, we passed through some wonderful countryside (no shortage of land to build housing estates on down here!) and a few Cotswold villages, namely Bibury and Burford. So, Mrs R and myself planned to revisit these villages on the drive home on the Monday morning. All I can say is that it was packed with tourists and you have no idea how much cloning I’ve done on this image to make it half decent.

Crosby Beach, Sefton, Liverpool

A place of great solitude when the conditions are not the best. It does give one time to think and I couldn’t get the lyrics to Eleanor Rigby out of my head hence the title.

Not quite me but our resident prop and all-round good egg – Geoff.

One of the very few occasions that a photoshoot was very nearly called off but for Mike who had already made the journey there. So glad we didn’t back out.

Here’s the controversial bit…
What’s the difference between a photographer and the rest… the weather!
We were the only four people on the beach in these conditions, apart from a couple of dog walkers. No smartphone selfie-takers here. And that’s the difference, it takes a certain dedication… and madness to make the effort and persevere in such conditions. What appears as bland and dull takes more imagination to produce an image out of nothing. I’ll guarantee you will see four different takes on this location even thought we were all stood in close proximity to each other.
