Many thanks to Debby for hosting this week. A really good theme, it lets us show different types or styles of photo within the same theme.
I decided to go back further into my archive for this theme, rather than using recent shots. All my photos for this theme were taken back in 2008 when I was still using just a small point and shoot camera. I also decided to follow Debby's example and use mainly B&W shots (you don't have to use B&W though). These are all old favourites of mine, and you may have seen them before, so apologies if you have.
1) PERSON. This shot is called 'No Worries'. It's my favourite 'candid' person shot. The angle enabled me to get a really relaxed shot without worrying if the subject could see me taking the shot.
2) PLACE. This shot was taken at FreshwaterWest beach. A popular place for surfers, although I've never figured out why, as I've never seen particularly big waves there. It's also popular with movie-makers. Ridley Scott filmed scenes for his Robin Hood remake there, and some scenes for one of the Harry Potter movies was also filmed here.
3) THING. This shot of a seagull sunbathing was the first good shot of a bird I ever took. It has also caused some confusion because of the distorted reflection. That's because he's resting on the roof of a car!! LOL.
