Photo Hunt - Education


The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is educational. As I have nothing whatsoever photowise that could be described as educational (apart from the rock that was used as a hedge school - and I've used that before) here's me learning how to do Infra Red photography with a cheap second hand Nikon D50 and an infra red filter (and a fair bit of tweaking too).

The subject is an installation by artist Anish Kapoor in Hyde Park.

It does look like the moon is at the bottom of a soft bounce. It's neat.

I was wondering what that was. :) Mine is finally up. Being a teacher, I had many choices for this one. :)

The education that you give yourself by pursuing interests and perfecting a skill is the bets one. Interesting shot. I've only seen Kapoor's installation in chicago but would like to explore more of his works.
