A Lazy day?

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright, originally uploaded by andyskelton.

Hardly, today has been a complete blast. I was asked to photograph an event being run by one of the departments where I work. There were hundreds of people milling around the plethora of stands present, most external companies displaying their health oriented wares.

Rather than just snap at people, surreptitiously, as they looked around the various stands, I approached all in question to gain their consent. Most of the day was more about people than photography, which made it more fun.

Why am I not posting picture from the event? Couple of reasons; I didn’t bother with a model release form as it was an internal event, and secondly as it was an internal event all photos will be used internally unless my employer expresses a desire to send any to the press.

The batch of cat photos that were uploaded today to Flickr were taken on the Isle of Wight in 2008. I can see so much wrong with them but at the same time I am still in awe of any of the big cat, their power, grace but mostly their ability to lay around for most of the day.


  1. Nice shot! Beautiful animal.
