I've had a brilliant afternoon in Gloucester Cathedral today taking in some of the exhibits from Crucible 2 which is in the Cathedral until 31st October. I popped in a couple of weeks ago and promised myself that I would go back when I had more time and take my tripod with me. I'm fairly happy wit...

I have struggled with the theme for this week's macro challenge which is 'smooth'. I finally settled on some pearls on a silk scarf, both of which are smooth, although using a small aperture at this close range has brought out the weave in the scarf so it doesn't look as smooth as it should. I t...

365 Day 298 - God only knows

Yesterday I attended a workshop organised by the DVJ group of the RPS. The tutor was Alison Baskerville, a really inspiring photojournalist who has spent time photographing war zones in Bosnia and Afghanistan amongst other things and the theme of the day was to create a 'photo essay'. After an hou...

365 Day 297 - Awake at last

Anyone reading these blogs will be bored to tears of my grandchildren photos but I don't care. Today was my weekly visit to the smallest member of my family and I finally got to see her with her eyes open! She seems to have turned the corner at last, her breathing has improved, she is feeding and p...

365 Day 296 - Sophie

Stressed or what! I was asked to take some photographs of my friend's 2 year old granddaughter and stupidly agreed. I have taken photographs of friends' grandchildren before but not quite so young as Sophie. My friend was worried that she might be sky so I took a bag of books and toys with my whi...

The person who brought the Chinese Lanterns to camera club last night was kind enough to let me have some and I couldn't resist having another attempt at still life. According to the colour wheel, orange and blue are complementary colours so I thought I would team the seed heads with a small blue...

365 Day 294 - Still life

Members' evening at camera club tonight. Some of us took along the makings of still life settings for folks to practice on as we have a competition on this theme coming up shortly. We have very limited space in the local library for our meetings so conditions weren't ideal but those who attended s...

Here we are in mid October and the roses are still lovely in my garden. This is a particular favourite of mine, I have forgotten its name but it has a lovely scent and lasts a good few days in water.

I said in an earlier post that there was nothing quite like a lovely cappuccino - I lied!

365 Day 291 - Huntley Church

Back to my course again and this time I have to take the same photograph of the inside of buildings but in different lighting conditions. I thought the local church would be a good place to start because on a grey day like today you get reasonable colour in the stained glass windows but the rest of...

A visit to the Haven in Hereford today and as usual I put a little extra time on my car park so that I could have a walk round the Cathedral. This statue of Sir Edward Elgar, leaning against his Sunbeam bicycle stands on the edge of the Cathedral green. Around the plinth on which he stands are the...

365 Day 289 - Who needs Costa?

I do like a cappuccino but am quite fussy about where I buy it. Costa - yes, Starbucks - definitely no, but actually my home made version is pretty good too. Made with skimmed milk and no sprinkles as I'm watching my waistline, can't beat it!

365 Day 288 - Distractions

Today our game of golf was a little bit more important than the norm as we were putting cards in for our handicaps. This is my husband teeing off, whilst the greensmen stand behind him having a chat and with the tractor running. I'd have given them a piece of my mind but my other half is too polit...

For the last few evenings I have sat and watched skene after skene of geese (not sure if that is the correct spelling), I assume on their way to Slimbridge which is quite near us but by the time I have got my camera sorted out they have all gone. Tonight I was ready, camera on the tripod pointing o...

365 Day 286 - Mahonia Japonica

Next week's macro challenge is one leaf and I have been looking for an excuse to play around with these mahonia leaves for a little while. They are a little bit like holly leaves but change colour and are just starting to change now. As it was a pretty grim day here today I brought some inside, se...
