Butterflies are a tricky subject and can be difficult to photograph. Without a macro lens, it can be even more challenging as you need to get up close. They are incredibly sensitive to movement and by their very nature akin to a toddler that has just learned to walk, they don’t stop moving.

The jagged pyramid like walls of the Tate Modern Extension or Switch House looms large over me. As soon as I walked near the building, I knew that I wanted this composition.

I am searching for abstract ways of expressing reality, abstract forms that will enlighten my own mystery. ~ Eric Cantona

The best advice I can give anyone wanting to learn how to start shooting abstracts is to throw away the notion that the subject matter is important. Instead, you should look at the scene in a “new light”. Focus on the composition and the feeling of the image and let the subject matter be secondary.

Happy Birthday Canada! I know I'm a little late to the party but I'm sure that the celebrations are still going on somewhere. Toronto is one of the first cities that I tried my hand at long exposure and nighttime city shooting. This is probably one of my favorite from that night. It was a lot of experimentation that happened and this one I think succeeded in capturing that moment. Another fantastic thing is that I have again used my ~ Diani Glow ~ preset to process this.

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. ~ Arnold Bennett

Addis Ababa is changing. Everywhere you look there is a new building going up, roads being dug up and improved and whole neighborhoods disappearing. This is unfortunately what growth looks like. We make way for the new by clearing up the old. However, while doing that we are also losing out on some of the beauty that history has?

Crazy Streets ~ Bangkok, Thailand

There are only two places where I have been extra careful of crossing the street and they are both in South East Asia; Thailand and Vietnam.

This particular picture is when I was trying to do some panning. The rain was falling and me and wifey @gedle were standing under some shelter. I was stationary and the traffic was whizzing by so I thought I would try and pan the shots.

I really like this picture as it totally portrays the speed, traffic, rain, and sense of craziness that I was feeling.

London Moody ~ The Shard, London, UK

Last year I had to go the UK to get my appendix taken out. It wasn't the most fun I've had but I was happy to get a few days when I could take some pictures.

This day was particularly bright but lots of clouds. When I got back to my "digital darkroom" AKA Lightroom, I looked at this picture and thought I needed a nice moody monotone picture. Overall, after the treatment, it took on a more sinister mood for me.

I wrote about when to use black and white last week over on my blog. The link is in my profile or go to http://buff.ly/2sAGOg5

Me and Obama ~ Diani Beach, Mombassa, Kenya

You can tell that these two are totally in sync with each other. Not only was he constantly nudging his owner but also looking forward to the nose rubs he would get in return.

So the new preset ~ Diani Glow ~ is also used on this photo of Obama. That's the camel's name BTW.

A Man and his Camels ~ Diani Beach, Kenya

Been really happy this weekend and I wrote a nice little story about how difficult it is to connect with some of the subjects in your photographs. It is easy to snap a picture from a distance but it's also important to sometimes get a little closer and open up.

Secondly, I think I have created one of my favorite Lightroom Presets this weekend which I've named ~ Diani Glow ~ after the beach that inspired it. Check out the story over on the blog and let me know if you're interested in the preset.
