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 :)

Another duff one tonight I'm afraid - it's been a trying day and I really wasn't in the mood to put much effort in this evening. Sadly even the drops were a disaster - not a decent one amongst them so here's a bundle of drops! Fingers crossed I can produce something better tomorrow!

A bit of a crappy picture tonight but quite frankly I'm feeling disinclined to make much of an effort this evening - I'll do better tomorrow. Anyway I saw these vases/jugs, whatever, in the charity shop a week or two ago and I'm afraid I rather fell for them. I finally managed to get there this ...

I allowed myself some time with the Splashart kit this afternoon - just an hour as it's far too easy to get carried away and suddenly find hours have gone by and hundreds of photos taken. Besides I had a still life I wanted to get done as well...... I actually got three double collisions althoug...

I've spent much of today blitzing the garage having got rid of some of the larger items in there ie. dead tv and wotnot. Now I've three bags of junk piled up ready to go one day but at least I can see the floor in there and am making headway. I've just thought that I wish I'd not swept the cobwebs...
