Today’s theme is water, with the extra tip to try shooting both horizontally and vertically.
When I think of water, my first thought is the sea. Then the taps in our house and how we want to change them (arguably a less compelling picture). Although I now live closer to the coast than ever before, I couldn’t get there today (thus not fulfilling one of my self-imposed rules for this course; taking the photo on the day we are given the theme). So, my thoughts turned to the body of water I spend a lot of my working days near – the River Thames.
I took this on my walk to the office from the train station this morning. I took a slight detour along the river, which I do now and then. For some reason I like being near water. Perhaps I find it relaxing!
I tried a similar shot vertically, but I prefer the horizontal, perhaps because there is more going on left to right than at the top and bottom of the picture. What do you think?
Shot on Fuji X100T with the monochrome and red filter profile. I chose black and white due to the slightly unappealing murky colour of the Thames.
Thanks for reading!
