This is the entrance to Rochdale Town Hall...a beautiful building.
My tripod for this shot was the road, so I had to be careful not to get hit by a car, or worse, the camera get ran over..esp with an 8 second shutter speed

I met this man a couple of years ago, he was helping to build a new Kingdom Hall for Jehovas Witness' in my was amazing in that they had gathered around 100 people from around the country to come and help on this build - some of which from overseas.
This man was English, but he could speak in a number of different langauges including Urdu and Russian.

This was another shot I took at the Trafford Centre (same series as below), and my favourite shot...and to be perfectly honest, one of my favourite photos I've ever taken.

I like doing interior photography, but recently I've been thinking about the time it takes, and how many shots you will take to get to the right settings, and then composing it, and then composing differents shots together to get one final photo - and often, unless the interior is really cool, you wonder whether it was worth it.
So I decided to take some shots whilst walking back to my car from work (Trafford Centre), but the camera on a 1 or 1.5 second shutter speed, and then took shots as I was walking back.
I'm pleased with the shots, they show movement and document my journey, and I can see elements of the TC when looking at them. My younger brother said they were crap and look like they were taken by accident...what do you think?
I'll post my favourite of all the shots next time.

Another 3shot post..I will try and take some new shots today, I have a new idea I want to try out that is based on Architectural photography.
Shot 1: You may have seen on the news that we are meant to see more Spiders as they have enjoyed excellent conditions for breeding. This was taken at a underground passage in my town, where spiders live in and around the lights that illuminate this passage.
Shot 2: What I love about Street Photography is that it isn't always planned, you take your camera and yourself, and take photos, and sometimes its only when you get home you get time to examine what you've taken..this is one of those times. The shop in the background and this man in his pose were there by complete chance - I was happy with the shot.
Shot 3: An emerald coloured tree taken through an old, rotting window.
As ever, click to enlarge, and thanks for the comments on the previous photos
