Jump – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #72 – Waiting

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

This week, we invite you to explore waiting. Share with us photos and stories of your or other people’s waiting experience–waiting for holidays, vacation, travels, or a photographic moment.

Well I have been ‘waiting’ for the perfect challenge to use this photo, and finally I think it has come along.

Some young swimmers were doing back-flips off Smeatons pier in St. Ives, each waiting their turn, and waiting for the right moment.  In turn I was watching and waiting for the perfect moment to take the shot.

Pier way – Which Way Challenge: April 18, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

Finishing

Well I have nearly finished editing the last of the photos I took with the HS20exr, before I moved on to the a6000.  I had a great time with the Fuji, and it taught me a lot. Sometimes I got some exceptional images with this small sensor camera.  Gone but not forgotten the camera has passed into the hands of Karen who I am sure will put it to the test.  So I thought I would share another photo from that trusty old friend before I move on to sifting through the photos I have begun to take with the Sony.  So here is a view from Beaumaris pier:
