I wonder if she remembers me from Dundee Caird Hall in '86...
Unlikely, given that the poor old thing seems not even able to remember her own name, and has to have it written on a label to remind her.

I used a Heliopan ND 3.0 10 stop filter to get the shutter speed right down to around 1/15th of a second on one of the sunniest days of the year I was only doing about 10 mph around Brandon Hill, so its no where near as irresponsible as it looks!
Click the pics for a bigger images, the little ones don't do them justice

Thanks I'm gradually starting to have fun with the camera again since I sacked myself
Wonderful, Paul. This is where my photo logic falls short. I wouldn't even think about such dramatic pics, let alone executing the idea.

But your insight and passion for some other thing/subject/activity could lead to photographs that no-one else would have thought of.
What about - for example - recording all the vestiges of WW2 activity in your area? (Plenty where I live like fading SWS signs on the ends of some terraces.)
Photographing something with a slant that you 'get' but others might miss.

This shoot came about backwards, I didn't think 'how can I create X shot', I thought 'I haven't used my Manfrotto Super-clamp in a while, where new can I stick it?'. I then got the image in my head and added the ND to get it.
There always seems to be pressure on photographers to have an idea and then execute it. I like working the other way around, its a good way of bypassing creative block. Its very common for Artists to create something cool looking and then attach meaning to it afterwards, why not us?
Try looking at your camera, what features haven't you used before? How can you do something new with that feature? Where haven't you put your camera before? Screwing around with cameras instead of doing real work has always produced my best shots
Thanks, but unless I can strap a camera to the axle of a vintage car or similar vehicle of the same vintage, then mine tend to be basic landscapes and familyscapes...
Oddly, I have got some shots of a WWII shelter (once I've uploaded), and the cockpit of a VC10 and various other bits of keepsakes.
