Keizo Ushio Black Granite carving with Sea Gull …


Keizo-Ushio-Black-Granite carving
Keizo Ushio Black Granite carving.

I don’t mean any disrespect to the sculptor by including the seagull perched on the top of the sculpture, but I  think by leaving it in it gives a sense of the scale of this work, its massive moving it to the exhibition from Japan would have been a major undertaking in itself. Granite is tough but it is also brittle, one false move and… I hate to think of the consequences. I really like the way that the IR brings out the detail much of which would not be seen as clearly in colour.  The more I use this little Voigtlander 40mm lens the more I like it, Its far better for me than the f2.8 24-70mm zoom which is now for sale on Gumtree…

Georgian two steps! Lancaster England

Canon 5D f4.5 1/60s ISO400 EF24-105 IS

T’was the same cold day about an hour later than the previous Lancaster photograph but just the faintest touch of blue sky started to appear, but was gone so quickly I didn’t notice it until I opened the file in Photoshop…
