I was off work today and I had arranged to go to London to take some pictures, for my next project, with a friend from work, Dave Rooney. But things got in the way so we had to call it off. We will do it at a later date as he takes some great pictures and a day out with him would be great fun.
On the way home from work last week I saw a poster at Waterloo Station for an exhibition at the National Theatre .
Take a View: Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010
22 November – 16 January
Lyttelton Exhibition Space
I decided that it would be interesting to see what images had been entered and it would keep me out of the cold!
Mr Taylor had also suggested that this type of visit would be a good idea. So off I went up to London for the day.
I have to say that it was a great day. The standard of images on display were overwhelming. Apparently this is the fourth that the competition has taken place and according to people who I spoke to the standard just gets better and better.
There were pictures of everything from Railway stations to marshes and islands.
Looking at the images on display they made me realise how much I enjoy taking pictures and on how I would like to, one day , reach a similar standard or try to get close to it. I think a lot more practice is going to be required and a little bit of luck!!
