Pictures from Doncaster 10k 2012

I wrote about watching the Doncaster 10k run just after it happened in May, and I used a few of my pictures in that post.

I took quite a few more, though, and I’ve been wondering what to do with them. So here they are. Partly to show off some amazing achievements, and partly in case anyone who was in the run happens to look in here.

Seeing Red

I’m following along with Exploring the Senses, a lovely e-course from Susannah Conway, and today’s email had me thinking lots about colour and particularly red.

I don’t have lots of time this evening, but I had a bit of a creative burst and photographed a few bits at work as I was waiting for Mike to pick me up.  And then a few extra bits I found at home. I think that doing red made me all thrusting and urgent. I’m not sure I’d have felt the same if I was looking for yellow or pink.

I’m loving the new collage feature on picmonkey, by the way. Can you tell?

Through a Wire Fence

Shooting through a wire fence is one of the posts over at Digital Photography School today.

We had a couple of zoo visits last year, and fences being a major issue means that some of the photography is quite challenging.

I liked this one, though – and partly because it doesn’t really stick within the rules. I’d tried to make a bit of a feature of the fence instead of attempting to make it disappear completely.

Sleep – 15 of 366

We had another of our visits to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park yesterday. There were new things to see, as usual, including this which was part of a knitted woodland by Donna Wilson.

We don’t really ‘do’ art. Neither of us really understands it properly, and yet we love the sculpture park as it’s all so accessible.

“I’m going to use this one for ‘Sleep’ on the 366, I think.”

“Oh. Why’s that?”

“Because I think it looks like it’s sleeping.”


And that was our little artistic discussion.
