I have to say this is one of the strangest dance moves I have ever seen. Photographer Anna Bruce has managed a good angle by dropping down to the floor with her camera and getting this lovely shot of dancer and choreographer Marina Collard admiring an exhibition at Art Jericho, in King Street, Oxford. Looking along the floor, she has created depth and perfect negative space
Last Saturday’s Oxford Mail had one of these pictures I took of this massive dinosaur running around Cornmarket Street chasing children and everyone else. This was the most fun job all year. I was laughing at the same time as taking the pictures. I nearly dropped my camera when I saw about 30 French students run away screaming. In case you were wondering, the Jurassic creature is from a production called Dinosaur Zoo at the New Theatre
Four players all clashing together in the air. What a great expression from Oxford’s Michael Raynes as he so nearly wins the header against Scunthorpe’s Niall Canavan in Oxford’s frustrating 1-0 Easter Monday defeat
All my life I have wondered what the chap hiding away in a Punch and Judy box looks like – and here he is! This lovely, colourful picture by Mark Hemsworth of ‘Professor Chris’ at the St George’s Day celebrations in Wallingford has finally cured my curiosity. That’s the way to do it!
This great big dragon is sitting in the middle of a very large pond in the pretty village of West Hagbourne to mark St George’s Day. Damian Halliwell has pulled out his skills here by bringing the two subjects together over the expanse of water by using his zoom. The only problem with the zoom is the right depth of field. He achieved this very well with his aperture on f14 and his shutter speed just fast enough before lens wobble.
I really like this picture – promoting plans for a soapbox for people to have their say on May Morning – not only because the composition by Mark Hemsworth is great, but because how brave Michelle Walker from The Playhouse was to pose for this shot. Even though it was early in the morning, there would have been plenty of strange looks from passers-by to make you feel very, very silly
