Good morning everyone, it feels like it could be a great day.
All is well, I have a nice hot cup of tea, sitting on my settee toasty warm with my dogs and the cricket on the telly.
I did venture out this morning, then ventured straight back in again, the thermometer stating -4 was enough for me. It is definitely a stay at home day today.
The electrics were wired up in the darkroom yesterday, its coming along now.
It's interesting how much difference a 1 inch piece of polystyrene can make. The internal walls of the darkroom has been plywood lined with a 1 inch sheet of polystyrene behind it, tightly fitted so there are no gaps. Now, this morning I have been outside and the thermometer was reading -4, I then popped into my darkroom and the temperature in there was 0, that's a 4 degree raise, I now it's still cold, but 4 degrees is alot especially when the only source of heat at the moment in the darkroom is from the motor of a chest freezer. Wait until the oil filled radiator is switched on and the kettle is at full boil, I'll be printing in a hawaiin shirt and shorts.

This is another from my trip to Paddys Hole.
As I said yesterday, it is such an interesting place. It's one of those places that I find overwhelming with photographic material, this usually means I miss things, alot of things and have to make several trips. I think the flask is going to be getting some use.

I hope you enjoy this one, any comments as always are welcome.

Wonderful subject matter (full of interest and textures) and a great angle.

I like the way you've got down low for these (hope you got up again OK afterwards). Gives quite an imposing feel, the pots dominate the frame.
Just a thought - flipping this sideways, to put the large pot on the left, would give a totally different feel, I reckon.

I don't think I would get up from that low Moira, not without some form of lifting aid to help me, i.e. crane, or cup of tea and a choccy digestive.
Tip: For all my low shots I use my Manfrotto tripod and put the centre column in at the bottom, I then put my camera on liveview, mount it upside down on the tripod and release the shutter with a remote. I then rotate in photoshop.
I tried flipping it which made sense, but found that it seemed heavier on the eye.

All about lines, shapes, repeats at odd angles, and textures of course. Perfect for mono.
Today is definitely the day for staying indoors and building a darkroom. And for drinking tea Smile

Lobster pots offer so many possibilities-- never thought to do it with mono, but it is working here!

I do miss my darkroom Andy.It was just a cupboard under the stairs,but as it housed the boiler,it was always rather warm !!
I am not a great tea drinker as I prefer coffee.Was having a cup one time and I spilled it over a newly printed print.I put it back in the fixer tray to wash it and it came out a rather attractive sepia tone !! At that time,a bottle of sepia tone was expensive,so it was quite a happy accident.
Like the pov here.
Good shot.
Mick.
