Its been a quiet few weeks so just for fun I’m posting a few pics from a recent annual charity event for cancer care. I believe there was approximately 175 participants for this years Pendleside Tractor Run and I photographed quite a few of them on Blacko Bar Road in Roughlee.
The post title is a play on words but speaking of “street photography” I’ve stumbled across a wordpress blog by an event and street photographer called Matt Hart. I’ve never really had an interest in that particular photographic genre but after spending most of yesterday reading his blog and studying his images “street” does now have a certain appeal, to me at least! Matt has sold off his pro Nikon gear and invested in the Fuji X series cameras and lenses. The quality of images from those small mirrorless cameras has to be seen to be believed. The Fuji cameras also offer a great saving on weight which would be good when carting gear up places like Pendle although I don’t think they match a dslr for action/wildlife photography just yet but hopefully that time could come soon. Anyway, onward with a small selection of pics..
Would be a crime to convert this next one to black & white..
