I thought this would make a pretty striking image with the wooden pillars rising in to the stormy sky, and then a seagull flew in and sat itself down and made the whole thing ten times better!

I told you I went snap happy for all the boats! I'm not going to bore you all by constantly posting boat photographs though - these two are the last.
If you have any suggestions to what I should photograph (and I'm always open to suggestions) feel free to get in contact! I'm going to be joining a photography club soon to improve my image quality and learn how to use my camera properly. Is it bad that I already want a new camera? I'm absolutely in love with the idea of getting a DSLR. One of my friends has one and it is an absolute beast of a camera. I just want one!

One of my more in focus shots - I love the fiery colours of the boat at the top right hand corner of the image! These were just a few of the boats moored up at the harbour and I did go a bit snap happy and ended up with one too many boat related photos. More on the way! :)
The stone work caught my eye here and the worn appearance of the steps in contrast to the bright colours of the waterfront houses. I have to admit I did fiddle around a bit with this image on the computer to bump up the contrast slightly...that's all - I swear. Haha :)
I'm happy to say that I've now been given a camera stand so my photographs will be less blurred. I'm unhappy to say that I've forgotten how to use my camera on manual (I know, I should be shot) and am going to have to teach myself how all over again.
The pictures I'm going to be posting are all from a while back. My intentions when I took them were to post them on Lacebirds ASAP - clearly that didn't happen. So I'm posting all my older photographs before I go out and take new ones (though I can't wait to use my new stand!!!)
This is a photograph I took of an old lady feeding pigeons at a harbour. It was an intriguing sight to say the least. I don't think the image is in focus properly but I thought I'd still post it because of the interesting composition.
