For NurseBear, Liz and Mercury

Tag: Photo Challenge,Photography,PhotosKal @ 4:50 pm

Who wanted a self-portrait and pictures of the Forth Rail Bridge, respectively.

This is an utter cheat. I didn’t take the picture, so it’s not a self portrait, and since it’s not my photo I can’t credit for how hot the bridge looks against that sky.

Credit for this shot goes to Dave who I met along with HKP and ZZathras777 at a “Strobists Meet” in South Queensferry the other day – something I’ve been intending to do for months and never got round to. Special thanks to HPK and ZZ for turning what should have been a relaxing evening for them taking pictures into a training sessions, teaching Dave and I about the kit and letting us play. Very kind indeed.

Now then….time to buy some flashes..

    Why am I hearing the strains of “All by my-y-y-y-y-y-se-e-e-e–elf!!!” in my head??

    Thanks Kal, nice pic. My Dad told me a story that when doing his National Service he and some mates were doing the Edinburgh Tattoo and late at night they dared each other to walk across the rail bridge, I was never sure whether to believe him.

    Hooray, thankyou! Nice and atmospheric :o)

    Amazing portrait. And wonderfully dramatic on black, too.
    I’ve never seen a bridge like that, it’s as if it was carved from stone, or right out of Mordor. Or maybe it’s just the photografer’s magic?

    That photo has a more than a touch of the Murdo about it.

    Nice bridge. Nice sky. But DUDE!! WTF happened? Where is my chubby-cheeked, curly-haired little boy? The guy in that photo is DEAD SEXY looking!!!

    Awesome. While it’s not a self-portrait, i’ll accept it. (; I also have a thing for bridges, so bonus!

    Gorgeous shot with gorgeous subjects. (;

    A very dramatic portrait :) it looks rather “otherworldly”.

    I would like a picture taken called “the journey home after one of the bad days”. Would that be possible?
