V2 Photo 90 Panorama 2 – Whitby Harbour

Today’s image ‘Whitby Harbour’ is the second in this week’s themed photo blog featuring panoramic shots taken on my mobile phone. I waited to get a fishing boat entering the Whitby Harbour and framed it in the gap in the harbour wall. It brings scale to the image. On the hill to the right is Whitby Abbey and church which overlook the bay.

V2 Photo 88 ‘Staircase Mystery’

Here’s my latest image taken earlier this month taken at Cragside, Northumberland. I seem to return to the subject of stairs/staircases fairly regularly, sometimes ascending, sometimes descending. Perhaps the choice reflects my mood changes. I love the converging diagonals and blocks of shapes in this image and it’s slightly sinister feel.
