#EngvSA

I went along to the Somerset county ground in Taunton watch England take on South Africa in the 2nd of three T20 games. The Local lad Jos Buttler made his second return to the ground since leaving Somerset for Lancashire back in 2014 and he got a warm reception from the home crowd. The twitter users who added the hashtag #EngvSA during the game had their tweeted photos put up on the grounds digital scoreboard.




Jason Roy was the only batsmen on the day to get to a half century.

Eoin Morgan catching AB de Villiers who was just 4 runs away from his own half century.



South Africa won the game by three-run.

It’s been a very long time without a post on here but one of my best mates asked if I could help him possibly dip a toe in the water of modeling, we were hoping to get outside for these photos but for the day we were both available we were given a cloudy dark day. As you can see I’ve had fun with different Photoshop effects on some of these.

County Cricket

I went into the county ground in Taunton to watch Somerset v Nottinghamshire on Monday afternoon, it was the second day of a four day county championship match. The game concluded today with a win for Somerset by 2 wickets.

The new stand was having work done on it as the cricket was being play. This new devlopment has taken the place of the Old Pavilion, built back in 1881.

Mollie

My stunning friend Mollie was brave enough to allow me to take my first proper photos of a person last Thursday. I had a lot of fun taking these photos with Mollie and am really pleased with the photos we got out of it. The first one is with my family’s youngest Labrador Skye getting involved.

Using my tripod we took a good number of photos from the same spot that I later used masks in photoshop to combine the photos together to achieve the following.

Forest Nightfall

Late evening walk up on the hills into a forest area with my friend, Natasha and her black lab Molly. We had my DSLR with us, both taking shoots with it so some photos here are with Nat at the trigger. It had become very dark during the walk and with really only the cameras flash for lighting unfortunately got noise in some photos, but I still really like these shoots, producing some nice effects with what little light available to us.

Natasha

My friend Natasha has an excellent eye for photography and makes herself a great subject for some photos up on the hills, and with an approaching sunset it was a pleasure to take the role of the photographer.
