One of the things I love about photography is the sheer diversity in what can be captured - sometimes on the same day.
The following shots are a good example. The first, early morning macro shots, show nature at its striking best, with shapes and textures we rarely take time to stop and observe.
The other, night time city shots, show off the London Christmas lights. Here I used a tripod and slow shuttter speeds to blur the passing traffic and create the energy and atmosphere that a busy city generates.
Certain photographers often frown at diversity, suggesting we should specialise in a particular genre. However, whilst I can see the benefits of becoming known and recoginised for a signature style, I still get a lot of pleasure from photoraphing a variety of subjets and settings.
