So I set out to shoot a couple of spring-themed photos for our local photoclub. The format of the photos were pre-set to 2×5 (20×50 cm) and it was somewhat of a challenge to compose for said format. Cold, rainy and muddy – but I was prepared :D
Another photo shot by my 13 year old son (I am happy that he want’s to lend my camera every now and then)
