Days 6, 7 & 8 of the 365 day photo project

I may look like I’m getting ahead of myself, posting up pictures from days 6-8 when I haven’t sorted out days 3-5 yet, but I’ll have to upload those another time. Days 3 and 4 are time-lapse photos and I haven’t managed to find a decent program to run them through, and the pics from day 5 are saved in RAW rather than JPEG and I have a problem with my laptop so can’t convert them…blah blah.

They’re done though, honest. And I need to buy a new laptop so I can do some proper editing and saving down from my memory card which is getting a bit full in the meantime. Preferably before my current laptop actually dies. (I’m considering doing the Mac thing. But I don’t know if I can really justify the price premium. It annoys me a bit, but I still want one. But I digress.)

Day 6 then is the big wheel which reappeared recently in Manchester, this time in Piccadilly Gardens, converted to black & white with a bit of added contrast.

I think this daily photo thing is already helping me improve my eye – day 7 is a photo which was taken literally steps outside my office in Manchester. It’s a shot looking up at the building, but as I went to rotate it upside down and resize it to upload it here, I turned it on its side and really liked the effect. This photo also had the best colour in the sky of the ones I took – the others were a bit dull. Which reminds me, I need to buy a filter for my lens (as well as a laptop).

I’d say so far so good; apart from the time-lapse issue, I’m fairly happy with the photos. Let’s see if I can keep it up!
