As you can see from the photos that Lou’s eye for photography is mainly on the children – contrasting quite significantly from my perspective. Whilst I don’t think it is necessarily a bad thing that we focus (no pun intended!) on different things it does mean that when we go out with the children by ourselves we will end up with either landscape or children shots. Fortunately when we travel together as a family we get the best of both worlds!
Anyway, enjoy the views of Devon as viewed by Lou which includes many photos of my two extremely cheeky monkeys!
Part 1 of 2. I’ve just come back from a fantastic family holiday in Devon. As per usual I took lots of snaps on my ‘proper’ camera (Canon 7D) but also lots using my iPhone and Instagram. The quality of the images with the iPhone 4S are really good and with the nice effects that can be achieved using Instagram some fantastic shots can be made. Below are photos taken by myself and given the Instagram effect. The next part will be ‘Devon through the lens of a Canon 7D’, and I will be interested to see which posts ends up with the most hits! Additionally, if my wife lets me I might even add a third part to the set and upload her photos taken with her iPhone and Instagram.
In November, Louise and I took a trip to Chicago and NYC. Before we had even left Manchester we were told that due to a particularly strong jet stream we would be diverting to JFK (NY) to refuel. Whilst this wasn’t a major issue, it did mean that by the time we landed at JFK, got refueled, and airborne again, we were going to be arriving into Chicago a few hours later than scheduled. However, since we did not have kids in tow on this trip we didn’t need to stress about how we would entertain them for the extra few hours! The plane we were on, crappy as it was, had amazingly clean windows which meant that I could get some good shots during the flight. The shots posted are a mixture taken not long after leaving Manchester Airport, and arrival and take-off from JFK. I particularly like the one that gives the full view of Long Island.
