The Street Where I Live

Hi all, sorry, It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to get out with the camera and take a few photos. I realised I’ve been neglecting the blog last week, so I asked the good folk of twitterland to set me a challenge. The first suggestion came from Tommie Lehane (Eyeblinks) –  “The Street Where I Live”. This is a tricky one, I live on a small Avenue. I was more than a bit embarassed taking photos of the neighbours houses, so I decided to approach it from another angle. I can’t say it was a success, I took most of the shots in three five minute sessions, so the execution is terrible – and the processing is worse. I’m rusty, very rusty. But I’m here to learn, so tough!

The Street Where I Live….

…has tasty apples on the trees….

…has old stone cottages with red brick chimneys…

… leads into Adare Manor…

… has beautifully kept gardens…

…but you just don’t know what happens there at night.

Thanks:
Síofra for posing with the knife
Tommie for the suggestion

Notes:
Shot 3. I’d really appreciate some advice on what to do with this one. The processing is a mess.
Shot 5. My flash is stuck on full power. I’ll get it right the next time!
