Photo Competition Number 1 by Flea, Kyle Westwood

March 4th, 2008 2:09 PM / Location: 54.869297,-6.274738

INSTRUCTIONS: Form small teams. Each team has 1.5 hours to take the following pictures:

* Text [ prominently featuring text of some kind, in any language ]
* Portrait [ either of someone you know or a stranger ]
* Black & White
* Place Of Business [ of or in a place of business ]
* Corner of Stockton & Post [ where the streets meet - choose a different corner if you aren't in SF ]
* 5 Wild Cards [ of whatever you like ]

The picture categories may overlap (black & white + text, for example). You must have at least one picture of each kind.

After 1.5 hours, meet up and share results.

Well, Ballymena is a lovely place. Sometimes we like to go out and shoot things.

And Flea would like to apologise in advance for the drop in picture quality, due to his normal camera being out of use.

Text


Kyle's Chosen Photo:
Kyle's Text
This was a sticker some fool had put up on a building area under construction. I decided to write my name where the large blank box is.

Not sure how much of an overlap with "Place of Business" this is...

We eventually decided that "Meeting Ho Lane" was the better Text picture simply for being slightly more witty.

Portrait


Kyle's Chosen Photo:
Kyle's Portrait
A friend who I coincidently met on my travel. She objected at first but I used my arguing techniques and how desperate I was due to lack of time to get a portrait.
Dave's Chosen Photo:

It kinda felt a bit cheaty going for a portrait of a mannequin, but still... Looks good, doncha think?

We decided that the picture of the real person was more deserving of a win for that category than a mannequin.

Black and White

Kyle's Black and White
It is a man with a dog.
Dave's Chosen Photo:

A picture of the Ballymena Town Hall, taken using the Black and White setting on my camera. The Town Hall is the building with the most history in Ballymena. Unfortunately, it's been torn down, so I took a shot of the new Town Hall instead.

Overall, we felt the Town Hall had an old feel and fit in better with the Black and White theme.

Place of Business


Kyle's Chosen Photo:
Kyle's Place of Business
At first I thought this was an "adult" shop but the raw meat inside proved otherwise. I then thought this was quite funny that a man butchered families but Dave explained the actual meaning to me afterwards...
Dave's Chosen Photo:

Unable to find any particularly interesting businesses, I decided to take the long and painful step off of the escalator in a department store...

We decided that Longstaff won it, because murderers and innuendo are far more interesting than emotions and stuff like that.

Corner


Kyle's Chosen Photo:
Kyle's Corner
This is a corner. It's not very special. In fact, quite boring. Corners are quite boring. I looked for a car crash at a corner, but to no avail. This is a boring corner.
Dave's Chosen Photo:
Dave's Corner
I went for the top down view of this corner, by climbing to the top of a car park and leaning precariously over the edge...

We decided that Dave's picture won, simply by being a more exciting view of a boring corner.

So, half way through the contest, and the scores stand at:
Kyle - 2
Dave - 3
And now...

Clearly, Dave has much to learn from Kyle. Kyle, apparently, has learned all that Kyle can teach him.

Except that I score it 3-7 Dave.

Also funny that all of Kyle's wild card shots were text shots.

Votes for Pond Retcher.

NI is full of clever vandalisers.
