RAMSEY SWING BRIDGE- WHAT ELSE DO YOU EXPECT IN RAMSEY?




Let's get this bit out the way. If you have found your way here for skywatch it's the post below.
It's Saturday, so it must be a Ramsey Swing Bridge photo. This wasn't meant to happen but Saturday's have become a sort of of Bridge Day. Anyway for those that know apologises for the next sentence. For those that don't, I was challenged by an some idiot to photograph one subject 100 different ways, which they thought was impossible to do. Doh! It's not at all complex, but well his pea sized brain obviously can't fathom out one more than two angles maximum. So here you go No. 12. So now we've had a dirty dozen of the bridge. Zillions more to go. It's taken again with the point and shoot Olympus. I try and take the bridge on a blue sky day purely as the red and white of the bridge stand out more. When I show you a monochrome shot of the bridge you can guarantee it's a crappy day weather wise. No alterations apart from re sized for the blog.


In case you think the tone of the text is a tad clipped well yes you'd be right. Sometime ago I was approached by a group of island photographers inviting me to join them on their site. I asked for a little more info. We traded emails. Their work is predictable, safe and in the main poorly shot. This for me was not a problem as the aim was to get them up to my level. Their idea was for me teach them add my images to their site to increase their sales base, and in turn they introduce me to the island. Sounded good. Time elapsed nothing happened until a curt email explaining that as they couldn't use my Ramsey Daily Photo blog, then I couldn't join theirs. Remember they approached me. Recently they have been desperately trying to mimic my photography and trade off my reputation instead. Sad!


The moral of the tale is... Many things! All I can say to them is it's your loss boys. You keep your small island market if it means that much to you and I'll tell you what I'll keep my online world market, you know the one you wanted me to introduce you too. You just can't help some people.
This happened a few months ago, but things have reached a point where something had to be said.


Scheduled post. Won't be around.

Looks like the world is with you! I know I am. Another splendid bridge shot - makes it look like a long trek across. You'll probably make your way over there but on MostlyLAcounty.blogspot.com, I've posted a bridge shot inspired by yours truly.

you're right, their loss, sounds like ya dont wanna be involved with those airheads anyhow!
I love your swing bridge pix, bring them on.

Uh-huh. All about protecting one's turf. I suspect I might have had similar situations develop "if" I was seen as a little more approachable and less aloof. So be it. I'm happy. Enjoy your holiday.

genius tough to replicate! :)

It is peace in Mumbai at last.
Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes.
Pray for all those who lost their lives and may God give strength to their near and dear ones to bear their irreparable loss.

Small community, small minds. Their loss.

The bridge, though, is as ever looking very photogenic.
Whatever you're doing have a good weekend.

I came over to see if you had done PH 'Metal' - and found METAL !

NYD said...

while it mightr be a pain in the ass to complete the project, 100 views of a subject shouldent be all that hard to do.

Have fun doing it!

Tanya said...

i particularly like this of your bridge - could you do a collage post of the first 10 photos you posted of the bridge?!?

Neva said...

Humph...small minded and petty by the sounds of it..you go girl!!! and I can't wait for 88 more shots of the bridge!!! separates the men from the boys in my mind!!!

Kathiesbirds said...

Lovely shot of the bridge there. Sorry about the trouble with the others.

Small City Scenes said...

Good for you---you are so much better than their pettyness. In fact you taught me about settings and now I have forgotten and can't find which post it was in. I think my brain is pea-sized too. Well a large pea. LOL. MB

Saretta said...

Their loss, not yours! Nice shot of the bridge...haven't seen this one before.

marley said...

Another great bridge shot :)

I'd like to thank the PWTPSB for challenging you because I'm thoroughly enjoying the Swing Bridge photos. About Gary's cartoons, in the summer ones, I think that #1 and #8 are most effective.
