Red Ladies Clod Ensemble

This week i was lucky enough to get out and help with a event taking place in Margate over several days and ending with performances at the Theatre Royal in Margate on Friday the 25th and Saturday the 26th July 2014, Red Ladies have arrived !

There was a large group of identically dressed women who converged on Margate town on Wednesday 23rd July. They all made their way around Margate in small groups, stopping off to visit certain locations along the way. I had been assigned the three Ladies pictured here. They stopped off for afternoon tea at Lady Teslas Loose Leaves and Mud Tea Rooms. They sell a vast array of specialist tea leaves and also sell coffee and cakes, well worth a visit.

While the ladies are around the town they stop and perform a series of mysterious, visually arresting interventions before rendezvousing at Margate Theatre Royal to perform their ‘theatrical demonstration’ in five movements.

So if you are in and around Margate this weekend you could see the Red Ladies out and about.

Kearsney Abbey Waterfall

Kearsney Abbey Waterfall  

Took a trip out to Kearsney Abbey today, when i left home the weather was clearing and essentially not raining, by the time i arrived at Dover it was pouring down again. Sat in the car for a while while to see if the weather would ease, it did but never actually stopped raining ! I decided i had come this far so got out the car got my gear out and headed down towards Kearsney Abbey Waterfall.

As i made my way down to the lake area i noticed how empty the park was , there were only a couple of dog walkers that i could see. I followed the path to stay on solid ground as long as i could but eventually the path ended and i had to cross a small grass area towards the lake. The moment i stepped onto the grass i found myself sinking into the ground, it was that soaked. The lake was almost up to ground level and as a result the water was moving very quickly over the fall..

Got my camera set up on the tripod and attached a circular polarising filter. Set my composition and adjusted the filter, i then set my exposure and took the shot. The water was moving very fast so only needed a relatively short shutter speed to achieve this effect, this on was 1.6 seconds helped by a very small aperture of F/22.

Editing was done in Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC

Made some contrast adjustments with onones photo effects 8 dynamic contrast filter and applied a tilt shift blur in Photoshop CC blur gallery.
