Afternoon Light

“How beautiful maleness is, if it finds its right expression.”

D.H. Lawrence

I have had the happiest two days hanging out with some of the best people that our corner of Twitter has to offer.

Today, a big group of us started the day celebrating Honey‘s birthday over brunch. Ever the opportunist, I got them all back to mine for a photography and fizz extravaganza where we got around half my February PhotoFest shots in the bag, plus a couple of extras for other participants. I can’t wait to show you our work because it is going to be a ridiculous and joyful month on Exposing40!

Yesterday was a less frenetic day hanging out with a new friend, photographing them for the first time. I do love the first time I photograph someone – building that connection and trust, getting to know how they move and look, and gauging their response to my sometimes crazy ideas. There’s some silly photos of them coming up for February PhotoFest but there was also the opportunity to make the most of the late afternoon sunlight for some relaxed peaceful shots that summed up the mood of the afternoon.

Lamplight

For this weekend’s low lighting/shadow prompt I’ve been playing with the Tunisian lamp that sits in my office. I can’t decide whether I prefer the colour or black and white. What do you think?

This isn’t the only photo taken in my office this weeks. Check out Honey’s Mistress of Light and Shadow.

Peaking Around the Corner

A new year and a new decade is just around the corner and I’m excited to see it unfold. I love this time of year. I have a couple more days with my parents which I’ll enjoy but really I’m itching to get back to my flat and start my annual exercise of making lists and plotting experiences and adventures. I know for sure that more photos in the wild will be on the list!

Happy New Year to all of you – I hope the year ahead is full of joy. Thanks for all the support this year for my blog and for my crazy photo adventures and musings and life and love!

45 Rotations

Monday is my birthday. Another rotation round the sun nearly complete.

Me: “Next time you see me I’ll be 45.”

Exhibit A: “Do you have a record player?”

Me: …

Ah! He’s a clever one. He was after a 45rpm record. We started off with an LP but realised that was a 33rpm so we switched to 10 inch singles which are indeed 45rpm. Sometimes 12 inches is just a little too big…

Hole in the Wall

Here is the third and final (for now!) photo from my day out with Missy. As regular readers know, it’s very rare for me to show my belly – I much prefer to focus on my arse and legs, which I approve of much more! – but I really love this shot so here I am turned towards the camera for a change.

In Ruins

Here’s the second in a series of three photos I’m posting from my recent photo adventure with Missy. This photo was taken in the same location as this weekend’s post from her. We were so lucky to have this all to ourselves!

Wuthering Heights

“Out on the wiley, windy moors
We’d roll and fall in green
Kate Bush, Wuthering Heights

As I’ve said here before, I am called Catherine because my Mum was reading Wuthering Heights when she was pregnant with me. So it’s not surprising that an outdoor shot on the wiley windy Yorkshire Moors has been on my blog bucket list for years. A rainy cold Saturday in November may not seem like the best time to make it happen but Missy and I are dedicated to our art so off we went. And actually I think it strikes the perfect bleak mood.
