2023 – week 30

The next big event to shoot is Herd In The City, an exhibition of elephant sculptures dotted around Southend.

Similar to the Hare Trail and Edinburgh Cow Parade, there are plenty to shoot, and I want to try to do more than just grab snapshots.

For this shot, I liked the effect of the rain, and chose a slower shutter speed to blur the passing traffic. I took a few shots, hoping for a red car to complement the elephant, and my patience was rewarded.
