This is in many ways a mundane picture of a mundane subject.

But it does reflect a number of things:

The environment is changing.

I’ve been a cyclist for over 50 years but it’s only relatively recently that there’s been an emphasis on cycle paths and so on.

Photographically it’s not a great challenge but it’s still easy to get a duff shot of a subject like this.

I hope I’ve got some lighting which emphasises the detail in the stonework.

I handheld this shot and used a high enough shutter speed to stop shake.

As the subject is relatively two dimensional I was happy to rely on autofocus.

As I was crouching for this shot and wanted close framing I decided to use a zoom lens so that I could frame without changing position.

As this is a horizontal composition I made sure to take a vertical version as well.

It’s all too easy to forget that different page layouts need horizontal or vertical pictures and it’s easy to miss a sale by not taking both,

Also, you’ll likely miss the chance of a cover shot if your pictures don’t fit the layout.
