A New Day

It was announced last night that George Michael died last night. This seems the culmination of a terrible 2016. This year has been a disaster on so many levels personal and political.

Looking through my photos I found this one which was taken in the Autumn and I thought that it was appropriate to the situation we find ourselves in.

Today is a new day and a new beginning.

Someone said to me recently that it doesn’t matter what kind of camera that you use, just that you take good pictures. I have been trying this out with my phone. Near my “day job” in Newbury. There is a statue, a sort of cut out which throws a shadow or makes a strong silhouette depending on the time of day and the way you look at it.

I was out at lunchtime and saw the street art, statue, call it what you will silhouetted against the weak August sun. After a little work in Photoshop you get the picture in the back ground of this post. The affect is most fetching I think.

What do you think?
