The Bridge

This is a beautiful bridge in Clumber Park just north of Nottingham and again I am featuring my wife, Maureen, in what I hope is a suitable position.

To me this works in B&W because of the heavy shadows but tomorrow I will feature a full on shot of the bridge in colour, reflected in the river below.

Good choice for the B&W, Brian, exactly because of the shadow play! And yes, you caught a very suitable position for Maureen. I think she's becoming an expert for your photography. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I shall have to find more suitable places for Maureen to be the person in my shots. In fact I have just thought of one I can use as I type this. Keep watching.

Brian, this is very good picture, I love the shadows on the pavement, Maureen is a pleasent person in your pictures, I think she must enjoy your walks with her and while you take these outstanding pictures, love you choice of the B&W.
Brian Walbey: To be honest Astrid Maureen is more of a walker than me, although she now has a hip problem that will have to be sorted sometime, and I am currently having heart treatment at the moment, so neither of us is doing too much walking just now. Anyway, less of our problems, I'm glad you liked the picture.

Brian this is a lovely shot and the B&W works very well. Nice way to meet your wife Maureen too...smile
I see this was taken near Nottingham, is this your home town??
Brian Walbey: Glad you like this Tracy. We live just outside of Loughborough which is about 20 minutes from Nottingham, Drrby and Leicester. Clumber Park is about 45 minutes from us, and the park I featured on 26th.February is only 15 minutes near to Leicester.

I can see the attractions in this very much with the deep long shadows of the parapet causing the lovely pattern. I'm sure your wife is better placed here than she would be if she was standing on the top of the parapet about to jump! smile
Nice shadow and supermodel Maureen nicely placed. Makes a good B&W
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, she'll be pleased to be called a "supermodel" at her age, but then she always has been to me. (Where's the bucket!)

Ah, these bridges are so photogenic aren't they? I like the mono and the way you've worked it, good contrast dark to light.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, I might get a print done of this for my Camera Club's next competition.
The shadows do draw you in Brian, it just has to be B&W as well. Well seen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, I don't think this particular angle would work in colour.

where's the bucket lol, great shot Brian love the lone figure, Maureen, just adds so much more to a fabulous scenesmile
Brian Walbey: I think without a person the shot would seem a bit empty Tim.
