I'm trying to decide which masks to take to Edinburgh with me - I fancy I'll have enough room in my case to take them all :) Stupidity will reign on a few evenings methinks........


I've been to the Black Country Museum today. Lots of blue sky, fluffy clouds, sunshine - a very pleasant day out. I can't say I've produced any masterpieces but dare say I'll find something to upload shortly. Meanwhile on the coach journey home I was playing with the little IR converted camer...

There's not been much time to play with the camera tonight - gardening to do, pond to top up, stuff to shift - resulting in time running out fairly swiftly. I'm now debating what to take with me to the Black Country Museum tomorrow - I can see me lumping along far more than I need but it would be...


I finally opened the box of B Movie Horror people or whatever they're called - picked up at a charity shop for about 4 - about 12 if bought online - another bargain. Now all I have to figure out is what to do with them.......

Blimey - this Monday Night Challenge does seem to take up half the evening - from trying to think of a challenge - then producing a start picture - then the mad flurry of activity whilst people are doing their pics and then doing the judging. Happily I dragged a guest judge in this evening and made...

If the angle is right, or wrong, with this mask the horse can look a tad surprised sometimes :) (do excuse the wayward string vest - maybe I need to find an alternative top) The only pics taken today were those in the mask - oh and one of my arm showing just what that leather jacket does to it af...

Photo 290 - Worn Out

I went off to Tewkesbury again this morning for a bit of a wander and went into a shop that can't possibly have any ideas of being an antique shop but is stuffed full of goodies. Sadly some of the ace bits weren't for sale but buried in a box was this trumpet - an Antoine Courtois - I have yet to m...

Another non-eventful day - usual stuff at work - no pics taken but a handful done this evening. I'm hoping this weekend will be somewhat more productive - on the photographic side that is - when I can fit some in between the blitzing I plan to give this house!

A quick play was indulged in earlier this evening but with little success - all a bit of a hurry really as I've spent the rest of the evening working through a vast quantity of photos that I want to get done and dusted before the weekend. I should get them finished tomorrow which will be something ...


Just back from a bit of a bumble around Tewkesbury buying more goodies for my still life pics. I took the X10 with me which did get used for a couple of snaps but took the opportunity to play with the HDR app I have on my latest mobile. Ok, I only took a couple of pics but it's not bad - certainly...

A quick collection of bits earlier this evening that again didn't come out to my satisfaction. Hey ho....... I've been playing with a new mobile phone - well the camera bit as I've not set up the phone yet. When I've got myself sorted expect to see a few mobile uploads soon - it's rather fun :)...


Well it could be better but I've had visitors this evening so wasn't able to try again - at least I managed to enter the MNC - I'm a sucker for punishment.........


I continued to point the camera at Poppy today - this time whilst she was waiting for me to throw her toy up the garden. She stays still then :)

Photo 365 - Number 283 - Poppy

I was playing with the best shot setting on the X10 and need to experiment far more before I start producing any decent pics with it. For starters it would have better to try photographing Poppy charging down the stairs when the sun was shining at this end of the garden and not at the top - a black...


Well simple enough idea - have a leg sticking out of the hat. Not so simple to carry out - picture me lying on the floor with my leg stuck in the air hoping to roughly line everything up so that it would be easier to combine photos. Nope - next time the hat has to me much lower - my legs just ar...
