Zooming in on tiny details
Getting sharp outlines and soft backgrounds
Observing things from different angles
Catching the unexpected - like a pink telephone booth in London! I loved the way that it might be a new trend as opposed to the classical Royal Mail red, but discovered it to be the base coat before the final coat of red!
I loved the way that shiny black London taxi managed to nose its way into the shot! The traffic had stopped at a red light and the taxi was inching its way forward. Cheeky!
Creating scenes from which a story may arise, like this homemade child's roundabout.
Or this one of a boat crossing at sunset...
Capturing layers and reflections like this scene with an early-morning fishing-boat on the lake at sunrise.
These are some of the reasons why I love taking photographs.
