Day 28 - TV Reflections

It's been a rather good day weather wise and I should have gone out with the camera, but I didn't - the day just seemed to go past at breakneck speed. Before I knew it, it was time to think about doing something for dinner, cos I'd planned to pop round and see my daughter this evening. In the mean...

OK, so holding my hand up here, I didn't take this photo! But I decided to use it for today's upload because it made me laugh! My grandson, Harrison, on a night out with us all celebrating Terry's birthday yesterday - I handed him my pocket camera to amuse himself and someone suggested he take one...

Day 26 - Hooe Lake

No rain today! So I took myself out to Radford Park and had a wander around. No matter what else takes my eye, though, I always end up at the far end where the hulks of abandoned boats lie in the mud of Hooe Lake. It is a scene much loved by photographers in Plymouth - more so, I think, since the...

Day 25 - Playing in the Dark

Realised how late it was and hadn't done anything for my 366 project, so ended up playing in the dark and came up with this. I wonder if anyone can guess what it is?

Day 24 - Sweeties

Once again I'm stuck indoors due to bad weather. A Flickr group suggested a weekly themed challenge, the first theme being sweets. Someone thought it would be a good idea as we would all likely have leftover sweets from Christmas. Hmm, they obviously don't know me very well..... leftover sweets? ...

Day 23 - Moshi Monsters

Been raining today, so couldn't get out with the camera and then we had to pick our grandson up from school, so I was pretty much occupied from 3 till 6 when he was collected from us! So here's 5 year old Harrison at my computer, playing at making cakes on one of his favourite websites, Moshi M...

Day 22 - What a muppet!

Kate and I went out this afternoon for a walk around Plympton St Maurice, a lovely, historical suburb of Plymouth. Our walk took us across Pathfields, an ancient open parkland which was the subject of Channel 4's Time Team a few years ago. We met a lovely lady with two labradors, one of which was ...

Day 21 - Memories of my Mother

Today my mum would have been 95. It's a little over 20 years since she died and I still think of her most days. I wanted to commemorate her in some way today, but living nearly 300 miles from where she lived means I couldn't, for example, photograph one of her favourite places. I don't have many...

Day 20 - Blinking rabbits!

We went to Plymbridge Woods around 3.30 this afternoon - I completely forgot about taking wellies, and it was rather muddy! I was gingerly making my way over to the bridge itself, when my left foot managed to find a rabbit hole and down I went (well, not actually down the rabbit hole, you unde...

Well it saved me going out on what was yet another flippin' awful day ;). This little snowdrop is in a tub in the garden, which I plopped onto the garden table, so I could shoot it without lying on the cold ground, lol!

366 Project 2012 - Day 18

God, what a grey, dreary, wet day it's been here :(. I had to force myself out this afternoon, as soon as there was a break in the rain. Ended up at Jennycliff, looking out over Plymouth Sound towards the Breakwater - the clouds started to break up and mist was rolling across the Cornish coast, an...

366 Project 2012 - Day 17

My husband bought me a Lensbaby Composer for my birthday 18 months ago and I'm ashamed to say that I do not use it nearly enough. I love the thing, and the weird and whacky results it can give, but unfortunately I always seem to have trouble getting the focus right - my eyesight is not what it used...

366 Project 2012 - Day 16

We took a drive up to Dartmoor this afternoon, parked up and had lunch and then I got out with my camera. By God it was cold!!! We walked along the track that used to be the Yelverton to Princetown railway (originally a tramway), which meanders from the main Princetown road to King's Tor. On a fi...

366 Project 2012 - Day 15

I rigged up my makeshift lightbox this evening - it's a white nylon 'pop-up' laundry basket that I bought from M&S a few years ago for a fiver. The top was just a round hole through which your dirty washing is pushed, so I cut the top right out, leaving a larger square hole and lay the thing on...

366 Project 2012 - Day 14

These are a few of the shells I have in a large glass jar in my bathroom. I did think it would be helpful to identify them for anyone who visits here, so off I want on a google mission..... Well, that idea soon went up the spout, cos it seems that there are around 80 odd families of gasteropods, ...
