Road Trip

Blandford Forum High Street, Dorset, England, UK


This photograph was taken whilst cycletouring through Dorset in England and beyond…which is why I have submitted it to the photofriday photo challenge, whose subject this week is ‘road trip’.

This photograph is really just a snap, taken whilst stuck in a traffic jam in the middle of the day….I think everyone in the town and on a lunch break, had decided to get in their cars and drive….!

So, idling away the time whilst resting my weary limbs on a traffic island in the middle of the gridlocked road, I pointed my camera slightly upwards to avoid the eyesore of the cars, and captured the rooftops and tower against a rather bland sky.

I quite liked the composition though….and although the sky was featureless, it is amazing how much detail is sitting there waiting to be utilised should the photographer so wish.

Anyway…this is my road trip…or at least one of many photos from my many little road trips on my bicycle that I embark on from time to time…

I am currently converting an ebook I wrote into a series of blog posts. The ebook is called Creatively Composed and is free in return for a newsletter signup….and I am converting the book into a series of blog posts…So why don’t you download the book and tell me what you think..!? It contains all my compositional ‘secrets’….
