Explored While Exploring The X20

So finally made a decision about which camera to get as a travel buddy. After selling my first image to a publishing house I bought myself a Fuji X20 enthusiast compact camera for travelling. I chose to get the retro silver version and got a great deal from Calumet Photography in Belfast. As you can imagine I couldn’t wait to go home to unbox this new toy, so instead popped into the Starbucks on Elmwood Avenue.

While there I submitted the above image taken with the X20 for the #FlickrFriday theme ‘Yesterday’ featuring a black and white print of an original Starbucks shop on the wall of the newly furnished Elmwood store. To my surprise this morning it was Explored.

Flickr Explored

Today one of my images that I had taken for #FlickrFriday theme #PolkaDots was featured on Flickr Explored. Which is amazing as I was still deciding if it was good enough for the challenge, but making the top 500 of the day was a real boost in confidence.

Flickr Explore is an odd thing to understand. In my time on Flickr I’ve had three images featured, but I can’t say they where particularly my best photos not that they were in anyway amazing. However it’s still an interesting channel which I would love to understand. What does everyone else think?

Lifebuoy 

Lifebuoy’s are one of those everyday things you never seem to notice much. Yet they are orange, iconic lifesavers that I find striking against a strong blue sky.

97 Percent

Last week on the #FlickrFriday group the challenge was a head scratcher of a theme – #97Percent. I have to say this one really stretched the old grey matter, but I discovered the statistic that 97 percent of climate scientists agree that man made climate change is real. So here is my photographic portrayal of that stat.

Children’s Notebooks

Notebooks I ordered from Truprint for my niece and nephews arrived today. They are created from images I shot of toys they each like. I like how they turned out and the quality of the printing is good, so I highly recommend them.
