Play Park with Grace

I was on grandchild sitting the other day whilst my Son, Mathew, went with his wife (Emma) to the maternity hospital to deliver Sue and I grandchild #09 of 09. Sue had gone with them and I was left with Haydn (Grandchild #01 of 09) Grace (Grandchild #06 of 09). Grace and I left Haydn in bed (Well he is a teenager and it was late morning) and we went to the play park just down the bottom of their road in Margate - Dane Park. It was a lovely sunny morning. As it was a working day there were very few people about.

Shortgrove Estate - Newton

About 16 members of the Cambridge Camera Club met up at The Shortgrove Private Estate, Newton near Saffron Walden. The Day was organised by our President (Thank you Sylvie) and started at 10. I failed to get there until just before Lunch due to a puncture :(

I idea was to take photos of the greenhouses and grounds in the morning and then process them in the afternoon. The greenhouses there are great and the sun gave some beautiful shadows. As I arrived late and just as the rest where completing the photography side I only took photos of the greenhouses.

I decided to use double exposure in the camera again to develop some creative ideas. Not all the photos below are double exposure. I found it very useful to develop the photo ideas in camera and then use Photoshop to re combine the individual images to create a new image.

It was a very enjoyable day.
