My Blog, My Diligence

A wise man once said that to be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, where wise people are diligent.

This blog site is to be my diligence, a place where I can share my knowledge, experiences, conclusions and show you some examples of work I have achieved with them.

 

Looking for colour

Fourth day of Photovember (which honestly makes me laugh just a little every time I read it) and here's your fourth little blog post, too. It's turning in to its own little habit which is definitely a benefit, too. I do like scribbling blogs but I tend to get drawn in to making them a little too long. These short Photovember posts are perfect for practicing a Twitter-esque approach to blog posts. 

Today I wanted to head in to town after the gym and go on the look out for some colour, as much of it as I could. I've always enjoyed the challenge of street photography anyway, it's such an uncomfortable style for me. Turned out I ended up travelling an escalator for about ten minutes trying for one photograph too! 

It was a day that revolved around looking for photographs to create but I've allowed myself one of these days as getting out to make photographs is, after all, why I started this little mission. The reward for this was leaving the gym at 4:30 and seeing the gorgeous calm sky over the roofline, so there was a little glimpse in to my day after all. 

Tomorrow will be about capturing my day rather than going looking for photographs, promise.

Having said all that here're your images (yup, you've four today).

One of my favourite buildings in Derby. It would be amazing to live in this building, just need to knock through a space for my cars

I saw the different colour temperatures on the entrance escalators and then tried to get this ghostly reflection photograph. Rode these escalators for about ten minutes

Went in to town looking for colour... think I found it! Love the reflections of the mural

So having captured some images in and around town I walked back to the gym to head home and was treated to one last splash of colour. Wow!

Walked out looking straight at this sky! Stopped me in my tracks. I stood and watched it for a few minutes and then saw a flock of birds fly across the scene, too. Perfect

I have to say again thank you so much to everyone who's embraced this little challenge. It's fantastic seeing everyones images and also seeing those who have dived in over the last few days and joined in too. I really am so excited to see all your photographs. I'll share as many as I can.

See you all anon, have a great Saturday night.
