Bokeh — Lens-Artists #194

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for this weeks LAPC set by Sofia: Bokeh.

I haven’t always actively sought bokeh & it has been a happy by product of a shot; that was until I got my macro lens & concentrated on this effect more ๐Ÿ˜

Working Horse Sculpture — PPAC #26

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for the Marsha & Cee’s Photographing Public Art Challenge, hosted this week by Marsha.

This sculpture of a working horse & handler can be found at the Falkirk Wheel. Working horses were key to industry back in the day & towed the barges along the canal, before they became motorised.
