365 - take 2 - 346

Things to do etc. this evening so a fairly early Blog upload for me tonight. I nipped into the garden for something pretty to photograph and, as usual, the aquelegia are smothered in aphids. I never do anything about them as the only beasties that I try to eradicate in the garden are the lily be...

Oh is that the time? Blimey - gone 10pm already and what I had hoped to achieve this evening has yet to be done. Good job I have until Friday to complete the task :) I did at least take a few pics today - a still life this evening and this morning I stopped at the top of the promenade and took...

Blimey - so much for getting anything useful done this evening. I only had two things on my list to get done and neither were - hey ho :) I did at least manage to take a couple of pics - oh and made a start on prop tidying - better than nothing :) This chap is another car boot purchase - I mu...

I had plans to be all constructive etc. today - blitzing various rooms, sorting props, sorting paperwork etc. Oddly enough it didn't turn out that way. First I went for a bumble around town, then played in the garden, then sat and read my book in the garden....... Ok, I did do a bit of tidyin...

I've had a fairly lazy day today. First I bumbled off into town just for a mooch - no reason other than the sun was out and I felt the need to have a potter for at least an hour or two. I did find a load of little plastic toys in one of the charity shops - at 5 for 1 I felt the need to buy a few ...

It was the usual Saturday routine- head off into town, then Stroud, then Slimbridge - play with camera whilst waiting for the bus and then whilst on the top of the bus. Home by 8pm. Nice IR weather though :)

As usual I took myself off into town this lunchtime - usually for an aimless potter and often taking in a few charity shops en route. Today I took the little Olympus with me as I wanted to have an experiment with the fisheye. I cut a piece of floppy disk, carefully attached it to the back of the...

I was messing about with the still life again this evening - as usual I'm trying to fit a stack of things in before bed-time so not a great deal of time was spent on it. This composition didn't exactly work - hey ho :)

As usual I was tackling the B&W challenge photo late tonight and was aiming for plant life. Nice and easy - leg it into the garden and pick lots of bits of leaves and stuff :) It was quite enjoyable actually - I set the camera to B&W and played - and like the results!

A quick still life tonight - tonight. Not good enough to put in my portfolio but good enough for here - and besides it's all I've done with the camera today.

I was half full of good intentions to put together a still life this evening but the day had dragged on and I just couldn't muster the enthusiasm. Happily at this time of year I can usually find something in the garden to play with so here's the only Tulip that appeared this year :)

I took myself off for the day despite the weather being less than glorious but at least it wasn't raining enough to use a brolly. Off I went to the antiques fair in Gloucester but found nothing of interest so the only thing I ended up buying was an apple danish for dinner :) As usual I was snapp...

I've been out all day but had to have a quick go on the SplashArt kit as I wanted to see how the Olympus E-PM2 handled the water drops. I could have waited until Sunday but I wanted to know now :) Anyway it does very nicely - ok, I only used one flash on these as I couldn't be bothered to faff a...

It's been another day of minimal photography - very important things like slapping some dye on my hair took priority this evening :) I did at least nip out into the rain and picked some Clematis flowers - they don't seem to last long once cut but there's plenty. I'm still doing battle with my ...

It's a quick effort tonight - I had plans to do more than one dandelion head but managed to demolish two and this one didn't fare much better :0 Still, better than nothing :)
