It's baaaaack. Well the photo blog is anyway After a break of a few weeks I thought it was high time to get back to the basics and bring the photo blog up-to-date.

So much has happened in such a short while I thought I'd start this week with a brief resume of events. My photo blog may have been quiet but looking back I seem to have been quite busy.

PEOPLE PAINT: Cheeky customers of all ages got colour drawings on their faces. Photo: Kevin Leighton PhotographyThere have been photo shoots and events to capture, air-shows and a news article with my pictures. The Flickr app for Android made an appearance on my smart-phone which has led to some new work on the Kevin Leighton Photography Flickr site and I've been busy with my dSLR trying to shoot ever more awkward subjects in a manual mode.

When so much has been going on it's difficult to know what to concentrate on so I thought I'd just bring you some of my favourite images and just go with the flow. I hope you enjoy them.

Fence Friday - Wet & Grey In The Bay

Taken in Cardiff Bay, Wales. This was taken with the new Flickr app on my smartphone using the Tokyo filter and is one of a recent set of mobile phone images on my Flickr site.

I've been trying to capture seagulls in flight and have found it and extremely difficult task to get the exposure correct especially with the autumn skys being so changable depending on where you point your camera.

Hope your day goes like this!

And finally November 5th and the inevitable fireworks displays were another photographic challenge and is one I'll write about in another blog.

So what's up and coming? I'll be writing about some of the photographic challenges I've encountered over the last few weeks and asking for some advice.

 I've also been in touch with  Darcy from my3boybarians and Kent Weakley from who run very successful Twitter #photochat Q&A sessions in North America and they have agreed to run one for the UK & Europe hopefully in December. I hope to be able to confirm dates & times for the UK & Europe Twitter #photochat session shortly.

See you all again soon.

Sweet Shot Day


  1. Hi there Kevin, after a long hiatus, I am getting back my blogging and photo-taking mojo :-) Great pics as always as good on you for chasing up a photo seminar with Darcy & Kent.

    Hope that you and the family are all doing well.

  2. Hi Cate .. thank you so much for your comment. Good to hear that you've also recovered your mojo. Don't know if you'll be able to join us for #photochat but look forward to speaking soon.
