I went off to the Newent Onion Fayre today - pleasant day but I won't be rushing back - too many people, stalls of little interest but still good to go out for the day. I did take a few pics whilst I was there but none of them are exactly awe inspiring - some quite nice IR ones in the woody bit by ...

Photo 365 - Number 324 - IR

I took the IR camera with me to work today in case I decided to wander off up to the park or whatever at lunchtime. Instead I found myself in town for some reason so I stocked up on orange juice in Lidl and wandered back to work. However I did take a snap or two in the ladies at work where I'd p...


My collection of junk, no - let's call it an interesting collection of still life bits and bobs, continues to grow. Today a very knackered leather top hat box arrived and I rather like it. It will need a bit of work on the lid as that's almost in pieces but it'll do nicely. Now I need to sort s...


I bought this feather, and some black ones, whilst up in Edinburgh last month - I've not a clue what I'm going to do with them but they're lovely - and that's good enough for me! I really need to blitz the place and get back into the photo groove - trouble is I'm trying to blitz several rooms at ...

Photo 365 - Number 321 - Me

Well another day with zero pics taken - I wish I'd had the IR camera with me as I'd have gone up to the park - the clouds were great in the morning and evening but I'll pop it in my bag just in case they're good tomorrow. I did chuck on a pair of gloves this evening - not great but I will get my ...


Someone has a funky new chair - now if only his legs would bend in the right direction! One day I'm going to do a little operation and make him a bit more flexible......


I'm afraid a non-photographic day for me today - lots of time spent putting together some flat-pack units and then clearing junk and sorting ready to fill them. Plus a load of tidying done in the garden which means the brown bin is now full - very satisfying. By the time I'd done all that any ...

A very pleasant afternoon was spent in Gloucester - mostly for the Gloucester History Festival which continues on Sunday - and also a mooch round a couple of antiques 'emporiums' where I'm proud to say that I resisted buying a gin trap. Had I been able to come up with a suitable still life setup fo...

I thought I'd see if I could recreate my 'Me and My Teddy Bear' pic with my new friend but his shoulders will need a bit of modifying first. It amused me for a while however :)


Say hello to ...... well he has no name yet - one day he will. 5 foot high and fairly flexible - and he's going to be fun.......

Time to start a list

My boss has asked me what pressie I'd like in November when I'll have been slaving for him for 25 years. Needless to say it's going tp be camera related - time to upgrade the Sony A350 and I shall have to sit down and decide just which nice new camera I fancy - still Sony as he won't stretch to r...

Photo 365 - Number 315 - Bread

And blimey it's very nice bread too. Bought to accompany some tomatoes and garlic for still life pics but I'm afraid it's disappearing at an alarming rate and the rest will be gone soon. What's more, I got to M&S as they were pricing up the last of the fresh stuff so it cost me a whole 10p and...

It's been one of those evenings where I've been doing lots of stuff but actually achieving not a lot - almost 10pm now and I've still a few things to do and will then give up. I did put a quick still life together but didn't manage to get the smoke - I'll switch cameras over to the R1 next time -...


Ok, at the moment it's a violin in need of a bit of TLC but by the time I've restored it a cello it will be and Woody will be even happier........ So far this is the only pic taken today - ah - I tell a lie - I took this snap as well..... Maybe something a tad more artistic will be p...


Today I sadly had to leave Edinburgh and make my way back home - a train journey of a tad under 6 hours and happily a peaceful one. I spent much of the time pointing the X10 at the window and taking snap after snap - and on the whole I didn't do too badly. I've brought some new props home to...
