Day 218: Spokes

discreetphoton Another day on the bike, but I didnít take any photos while I was out, so I opted for another detail shot on return. This was another one of those shots where I considered the focal length to use first, needing a wide angle and minimal distortion. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 60mm; ISO ...

Day 216: St. Peterís Church

discreetphoton I cycled out of town by a different route today, which took me to a lovely little village called Barnburgh. The church here is lovely in the sun, as the stone is a very light colour whcih seems to glow when the sunlight hits it. Apparently thereís a local legend surrounding this church, wher...

Day 214: Data protection

discreetphoton Today we had a little barbecue, but it was old financial records we were cooking, not food. Weíre having a bit of a clear-out at the moment, and this seemed the safest way of protecting our information. Plus, you know, itís fun. Itís been posited that the reason men are so keen on watching ...

Day 213: Maintenance

discreetphoton Today was the first of a few warm days weíre to expect, so I was on maintenance duty today. I love working on bikes. Iím rubbish when it comes to car maintenance, so itís a pleasure to work on something when you can just look at it and see how it works. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 130m...

discreetphoton This was the only photograph I took today, and it really reminded me of a glass sheet hologram that I gave to my dad one fatherís day. However, part of the reason for that can be seen in the petal in the rear left of the photograph. If you look closely, you can see a bit of chromatic abberatio...

Day 207: Chocolate galore

discreetphoton I was brought this selection of tasty treats today after my fiancťe returned from a trip to Cadbury World in Birmingham. Which made up for not being able to go myself! Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/7.1; 1/100s. VC on.

Day 204: Da-dumÖDa-dumÖ.

discreetphoton Iíve been working some pretty long hours since I started my new placement, so Iíve had to be creative today. I didnít realise we had so many serrated knives. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/9; 1/160s. VC on.

Day 201: On the move again

discreetphoton Iíve barely stopped for the last few days, what with my recent secondment starting, and planning various things for the local Photographic Society. Tonight I displayed some on my older work, and it seemed to go down well. I was rather rushed though, so you get this detail shot of my laptop bag. ...

Day 200: Fish

discreetphoton In retrospect, I should have paid more attention to what kind of fish this was, but hey ho. I snapped this while having a walk around Wentworth Garden centre after work today. It was a short walk, as Iíve got loads to do over the next couple of days, but I was quite taken with this little fella. ...

Day 199: Farewell and adieu

discreetphoton Todayís photograph is of a gift given to me by a friend at work. Iíve had a very sudden change of location within the same company which Iím hoping will be a very good opportunity for me. In many ways Iím sad to be leaving though, as itís been a wonderful place to spend the last year, and Iím blo...

discreetphoton This is a collection of some the State quarters that I accumulated before leaving the US a few years ago. Unfortunately there were another ten circulated after I left, so Iíve not got the full set. However, I do have one for each of the eleven states I have set foot in, so thatís something at lea...

Day 196: Playing fetch

discreetphoton Weíll start of with a couple of cute attention-grabbers. Whilst Iíve been conscious of wanting to get some good photos again, Iíve tried to get a bit of downtime in this week. The weatherís not been fantastic, so Iíve had a great excuse to play with our kitten. Over the last couple of weeks, Iív...

discreetphoton A close-up image of one of our table lamps tonight, since I managed to sleep my afternoon away. I canít even begin to explain how busy my week has been. Itís all been a bit of a blur. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 78mm; ISO 200; F/8; 1/30s. VC on.

Day 192: Fruit pastilles

discreetphoton Look tasty, donít they? They were. No extra lenses for this one, just the 18-270 PZD, as it comes. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/16; 1/160s. VC on.

Day 191: Paper swallowtail

discreetphoton Another origami piece today, and my favourite of several butterfly designs by Michael G. Lafosse. The beauty of a lot of his work is the simplicity behind it, and the scope for variation within the designs. I think the paper I used for this one worked out really well (although a matte finish woul...
