A busy evening here trying to get a batch of pics ready but I've not a hope of getting them finished tonight. I did at least take a few pics earlier knowing that I'd need something with today's date on it so here's another collision pic. I'm off to the steam museum in Swindon tomorrow - I thin...

Not a lot to report today - much of the morning was spent clearing the decks and setting up for some baby, & her parents, pics this afternoon. Half the room got dumped into my bedroom and then of course it all had to be removed again. Other than that a bit of gardening - I disturbed a rath...

I pottered off to Cirencester today for a bit of a mooch and junk hunt. No junk found and very few photos were taken but it was nice to just potter with no agenda other than making sure I didn't miss the bus home. The Cirencester Hare Festival started today - I did see a few about town but didn'...

I thought I'd make a mess with oil and water tonight - only problem is I will have to tidy up and wash everything up no - ok, tomorrow. The living room looks as though a bomb has gone off :) However if the sun comes out on Saturday then I'm off to Cirencester for a mooch and then Sunday morning wi...

I thought I'd try milk with the drip machine tonight and bought a pint of regular instead of my semi-skimmed. Quite frankly my efforts were rubbish and I think a day or two away from the machine won't hurt and next time I play I'll try to do it when I've plenty of time instead of my usual rushing. ...

Well I seem to be on the wonk tonight and whatever I did didn't make the blindest bit of difference. A tad frustrating to say the least but I quit - until tomorrow :)

My plans to go back to doing a bit of still life fell by the wayside this evening as my new Yongnuo flashguns arrived today and of course I had to try them out. Ok, one of them out as I'm short of a stand but will sort something out tomorrow. I've also been rooting around the house for the box o...

After a comment this morning by a work colleague I decided that I had to try to do a drop pic inside a lightbulb. Happily I just happened to have a bulb all ready emptied out and ready to use :) The problem of course with an enclosed space like this is that if your first drop isn't a success...

Oops - I was just about to switch off and head up to bed when I realised I'd not done my blog today! Actually there's nothing to report - not a great deal has been spent with the camera as I decided to get all domestic - foolish I know but sometimes it has to be done. I did have a splash pic...

I've been out all day again so it was a quick case of doing a few drops earlier this evening as I'd not picked up a camera all day. Any thoughts of taking a few pics from the bus window were thwarted do to the windows being absolutely filthy - there was no point. I have no plans to venture far o...

I'm still enjoying the SplashArt kit - no surprise there. Today I decided that I wanted to get a collision inside a bubble. I didn't do too badly - not great but acceptable for a first attempt - more will follow. However I thought I'd use this pic for my blog upload - I do rather like to see ...

Amazingly I didn't spend all evening playing with the splashes though admittedly a good chunk of time was spent messing about again. The main 'problem' is that I can leave it all set up 24 hours a day so it's there tempting me when I should be doing other stuff. Heck - the other stuff is only dome...

Will someone please tell me how to stop playing with this darned machine - it's flipping wonderful :) I really could do with a 2nd working flashgun though - I can see me having to spend some money again.............

Oddly enough I decided to play with the SplashArt kit again this evening. Sadly for some reason my slave flash has decided that it doesn't want to work so I was stuck with just the one. It was something of a nuisance but I struggled on - and will doubtless struggle on again tomorrow evening :) ...

Yep - too much time has been spent again playing with the SplashArt kit - it's addictive stuff you know :) Somewhere in this house is a box of gels for the flashguns but I can't find them so a bit of gaffer tape did the job with some hastily cut bits from my large sheets. The one flashgun takes an...
