Spiderman gets lucky


Of all the Saltaire Living Advent Calendar windows, I think I like this one in Rhodes Street the best this year. It's different, it's amusing, it's bold, modern and colourful, beautifully executed and yet quite unfussy. 10 out of 10 from me!

I've been slightly disappointed that a lot of the windows have not come out very well on my photographs this year. Sometimes it's been a practical problem, a car or tree in the way. Though they all look very attractive to the observer (which is, I guess, the real point...) some are very pale or simply too detailed and intricate to show up well in a photograph. I have risked being run over standing in the middle of the road with a tripod but even so I have found that I need a longer telephoto lens for some. [It's on my Santa list but I don't think I've been good enough for long enough yet ;-(  ]  The Facebook page has pictures of all of the windows, taken by better photographers than me, so hop over there if you want more.

  3. I see Spidey is holding holly over her head. Is that the British equivalent of our mistletoe?

    1. It's usually mistletoe for kissing under here too. Perhaps he could't find any!

  4. Little boys will think that's disgusting, Spiderman with a woman, lol ! I also have troubles with lights in windows or even on trees, I always take several pictures and with help of Picasa I modify them to a reasonable result ! I only have a little Fujifilm Finepix. Very easy to carry around, and play paparazzo !
