The Monday Picture

No: 408 The E-type


I shot this a couple of weeks ago for the owner and had to wait until the prints arrived before sharing it with you.
Its a composition of two images, I shot the car in a small car park surrounded by buildings and hedges so it needed a nice background and the beach at Aldeburgh in Suffolk seemed to fit the bill. Hope you like it.

Beach – Canon 5DII, ISO200, 1/600, f6.3, 24mm (24-105mm f4 zoom)
Jaguar – Fuji X-T2, ISO200, 1/210, f2.8, 24mm (16-55mm f2.8 zoom)

No: 406: Aston Martin

Aston Martin V12 Vanquish

We have been in London this week and one of the exhibitions we visited was “Bond in Motion” at the British Film Museum, near Covent Garden.
This is the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish used in the film Die another Day starring Pierce Brosnam who you can just make out on the film clip in the background. Well with the £14.50 entry fee. If you’re in London…

Its an iPhone 7 special… ISO 100, 1/17s, f1.8.

No 405 Axe

tree surgeons

Well this weekend we have been visited by the tree surgeons. Our lovely Tulip tree
had sadly become too big for the garden and too much work for us so regrettably we had it felled. I will miss the beautiful autumn colours but I will definitely not miss clearing up the thousands of leaves infected with fungal spores and other nasty airborne particulates.

Taken with the Fuji X-T2 & 16-55 f2.8 lens, processed as always in Capture One Pro 10.
ISO 250, 1/125s, f4, 42.7mm who knew?

No: 404 Pere Lachaise

P1010068 1

Tempting though it was to put up Error 404 etc for the 404th Monday Picture I have resisted and would like to share with you the amazingly beautiful Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris. Possibly the most famous cemetery in the world, certainly plenty famous people are buried there. I’m not going to list them that would be boring but if you search I’m sure you will find a few names you recognise.

Taken… so long ago – ISO:200, 1/320s f4
