Purist?

Now then, HDR, High Dynamic Range, is it a good thing for photography?  I think it is. It certainly has its place. I know it isn't for everyone but no one can argue that they can make interesting shots with HDR. I'd like to get much better at it. This one to the left is at Ramsholt at sunset. Is it good? Is it HDR? You know what, I don't even care. I'm off to play COD!!! Come tell me a joke!!!

Manfluenza,

After my running down of a certain seaside town yesterday I decided to take a little drive down there to see if I was right. Welllllll, it was O.K. Bit messy, full of people who should have jobs standing around outside "Poundland" and "Superdrug". Middle aged men wearing bomber jackets straight out of the 80's (1980's I think!), ill fitting jeans and white Lacoste trainers. Singles mums (I assume!) walking round with a cigarette butt hanging from their lips trying to get their offspring addicted to nicotine before they can walk. The pier is still there. Why can't Mother Nature do us all a favour and claim it from us. Tsunami, coastal erosion, lightning, any of them would do the job for me!!! Yup, I think im going to check the estate agents for property prices!!! Oh, I have Man-Flu.

Bad film...

I wanted to like Wrong Turn 4. If it were only a little like the first one I would have been happy. I'm not even going to give it anymore inches.
So Felixstowe. I think we should give it to Essex. Its not really a Suffolk town is it? Yes i know its IN Suffolk, but it just doesn't really cut the mustard. Its a bit like Lowestoft.  I believe that it's actually in Norfolk. I know Felixstowe is "classier" than its northern friend but you know what I'm saying.
Of course I'm only joking.  I enjoy going to parts of Felixstowe.  Languard Fort. Thats always worth a look.  A dated pier to which you get through by passing all the nice young people in the run down arcades. Mcdonalds. Errr, right. On that note...

Rain, Rain go away...

Not a lot to do in Aldeburgh on a rainy autumns day.  Can't even really get the camera out.  Is anyone using 500px? I've just set up an account. Come and have a look...http://500px.com/sticklepix
I think winter is here.  Saturday morning.  It's raining and there's nothing to do. Aldeburgh beach is calling.  I don't know why but it is.  Take a few miserable photos,  go and see Tony and Steve in Coastal Images and look at his awesome pictures. Check out thewebsite at www.coastalimages.co.uk.  Aldeburgh Fish 'n' Chips for lunch? I don't mind if i do.  A little view that some of you may find interesting is this little one. www.chipshopqueue.co.uk. At the time of writing the queue was non exsitent. Better get there quick!!! Don't forget http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sticklepix/295283550501419

Oscar and his best mate George having fun on a chilly Autumns day. They came home VERY muddy!!! Pair of monkeys!!!

Autumn Leaves

Washing up. Don't you just love it. Not me. But it's just got to be done. So I better go and do it. Be right back.
That's my little boy to the left. I think he's great. Always smiling. Always happy. Most of the time. I'm thankful that he loves it when the camera comes out. I think in the 21 months he's been around I must have taken around 11,000 photos of the little blighter. Is that a lot? Maybe. What is the average amount of pictures a proud parent take sof their loved ones when they are growing up? I think im probably on the higher end of the scale though. This afternoon I'll be taking more as his little friend is round to play and we are goin to go for a walk in the autumn leaves. There's a beautiful place I used to go when I was a boy which is not very well known, and hopefully it will stay that way. So many places have been spolit. Oh this could turn into a rant so I better stop there. Right, I'm off to play, enjoy yourselves...

films, food and teething!!!

Contagion. A film full of stars but i still came away feeling slightly let down. It was ok though.  Wait for DVD I reckon. In other news I had my first chinese meal in years yesterday. It certainly wasn't horrible but I remember why I don't often eat from that particular part of the world. How can a sweet and sour dish in a Chinese restaurant differ so much from a similar dish in an Indian one? Think I'll have a curry tonight...
getting back to photography I havent had  enough time of late. not fair. I have been looking at other "photographers" in the area who charge for their services. Some I think, 'yup youve got something', and others I see and think, well, I don't think I'll go there. But if others are willing to pay for them who am I to judge?
Anyway I think I'm going to have to go and look at some Ansell Adams to clense my brain...good game good game...
