Having bought a DSLR to do some astrophotography, I surprised myself by how much I started to enjoy the more common-or-garden kind as well. As an enthusiastic but untalented amateur, I proudly present some of the photos I have taken that have accidentally turned out to be OK…
A fisherman on South Andaman Island, taken when I was lucky enough to be there on business. There didn’t seem to be many fish around and I had to wait for a long time to get a shot of him casting.
While the family browsed through a shop in Lyme Regis I idly waited outside. I noticed the stack of tea towels through the window and happily had just framed the shot when my younger daughter wandered past.
Lyme Regis again. I had just decided that the light was too dull to get any decent pictures…
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, taken at the 2012 Goodwood Revival.
This group of friends were hanging around at the Jama Masjid mosque in Delhi. I have just asked them if it is alright for me to take their photograph, which has provoked a wry smile from the chap on the left.
Delhi again. This elephant was wandering down a six-lane highway. I leapt around like a schoolboy in my excitement. My guide told me that a tip was customary for taking photos. When a ten rupee note was proffered, the elephant took it in his trunk and passed it up to his driver.
Having spent an afternoon roaming Westminster with my camera, on way back to Waterloo across Westminster Bridge I happened to glance back, and got this, my best shot of the day.
