Sadly not a glimmer of inspiration on my trip home this evening - despite determined gormless staring out of the window the brain chose not to function at all. Fortunately the boys are always willing to help out so I let them explore the new shoes - well my new light has arrived and I had to pl...

Photo 365 - Number 356 - Shoes

It's been a long tiring day and thoughts of photo taking were about as far from my mind as could be. However on a brief excursion into the big wide world I did come across a pair of shoes in the charity shop - unworn and only 5. Well they had to come home with me and I did at least manage to remo...


Not the most successful of evenings - unable to settle down to anything really but hey ho. I did at least manage to join in with the Monday Night Challenge which unfortunately had a tiny contingent this week. Thought must be put into how to increase numbers! I did play with a bit of oil on wate...


Another day done and one with few photos taken alas. I've been good and blitzed the garden, planted bulbs, vacuumed around the house, this, that and the other. Besides inspiration has been in short supply this evening and for some reason I tend to do better with the silly pics after work when time...

Photo 365 - Number 353 - Snail

Not much done today in the way of photo taking - I had a brief play in the garden this morning and then went off out to visit a friend. Once I got back home around 6ish I wasn't feeling too inclined to do much although admittedly I did play with the skeleton briefly but only a very quick and simple...


I had a plan for my pal this evening and although it kinda worked there was something missing and I couldn't figure out what it was. Instead I decided to let him take the night off but couldn't resist sneaking the X10 round the door whilst he was taking a quiet five........ he was not a happy bun...

Yes - this morning I caved in and picked up a load of conkers :) Well there were lots under the tree over the road from the office and for some reason they're not being picked up - maybe the kids aren't interested nowadays - certainly the squirrels are but there's plenty more for them. There d...

I was going to get dressed up again this evening but things conspired against me so I dressed my pal instead. I must try that tailcoat on soon - it was given to me by a colleague who found it up in her loft - and very happy I am with it too! I reckon it won't be a bad fit either so will figure out...


The starting image for my upload tonight - as you can see I've not managed to do a great deal of tidying up but there's room enough for me, a skeleton and a ruddy great dress.......


As the dress etc. were still on the floor this evening I thought I'd bung it all on again - not sure about the results and I'm currently trying to decide whether to upload one of the pics to my portfolio or not. I probably will in the end but will go and make my cheese rolls for tomorrow while I th...


I actually played this afternoon - quite what I achieved this morning I don't know but I did finally get the wedding dress on and messed about for a while. Not long though - it's not easy staggering back and forth to the camera (even with a remote in my hand I still need to check the pics a few tim...


As the sun was out I took myself off for much of the day again. I popped over to Stroud and then on the way back stopped off at Painswick as I'd not photographed the trees in the churchyard with the current IR camera. It kept me amused for a while :)


It can be fun at the office occasionally - Dan and Lisa - have an ongoing practical joke thing going on - just silly bits of desk sabotage which tend to be rather amusing. It's handy that they're in different offices - each sneak in whilst the other is absent and it was Dan's turn to be got today. ...

Photo 365 - Number 344 - Envy

This is the corner of the old Odeon in town - it's been sitting empty for donkey's years now sadly but it doesn't actually seem to be deteriorating too much - maybe one day they'll sort it out as it's a rather nice building. Anyway, on my way back to work at lunchtime I noticed all the pigeons we...


It's a horrible chilly soggy evening and inspiration to do anything is sadly lacking. Trouble is I can't even see anything on the box to settle down to which is a nuisance - I'll have to find something online instead. Meanwhile I did do a pic for this weeks B&W Challenge - I was having real ...
