Not as sinister as it sounds, this is just a short series of photographs which seem to lend themselves to the black background on shutterchance. I have a particular love of such images, so this is an eclectic selection of some of the photographs I have taken.
I have to confess to being a disorganised and lazy photographer. I seldom plan my shots, as they are usually taken when I am out walking. I have a mono-pod and a tripod, and am yet to use them, so all my shots are `hand held`.. One situation where I could `plan` my photography, is when I am about to watch a firework display. I did read up on it, but it was just too complicated. Instead, I just click away and see what develops. No two firework displays have produced similar results. Some have been fairly accurate `as seen` photographs, and some have resulted in bizarre and delightful abstracts.
This year, I was photographing a firework display from my bedroom window. It was pouring with rain and blowing an absolute howling gale. The fireworks were roughly 200 mitres away, behind a hedge. Very few, save a few very big rockets managed to fly vertically, most displayed in a much more horizontal direction. lol! I particularly liked this shot, which shows them being blown off course, and the gives the illusion of the tree being alight. It wasn`t, but I did like the effect. (:o)
