Damn - I've been running round like a flipping idiot so I could settle down and relax to The Mentalist only to find they've pushed it back to 10pm so I'm making do with Storage Hunters instead. Ho hum - I'll search for a few pics I might enter into a competition instead - the closing date is Friday...

No splashes today - I've decided to take the evening off from doing them and did a quick still life instead - however I don't consider it up to scratch so won't be showing it off :) I at least joined with the Monday Night Challenge - good job too as it turned out to be a two horse race. It's a s...

I spent far too long this afternoon messing about with the splashart machine and I really did't come up with much to be proud of. It was all useful experimenting with lighting and gels and wotnot but I suspect my gum/water ratio needs working on as the end results were so-so. ho hum....... :) ...

As is pretty normal for a Saturday I've been out all day and by the time I got home was disinclined to put too much effort into anything. As the splashart kit is set up in the living room I can at least it takes minutes to set up and I can do a few drops. Rather hasty ones of course with flash...

I thought I'd get the perspex sheet out to try some crowns on and it makes a flipping mess :) It was just a try-out and I really couldn't be bothered to keep wiping the sheet down so here's a crown within a crown and lots of messy drops everywhere. I think I might sort out a smaller sheet - that...

I thought I'd see what kind of crowns I could produce this evening and happily they're pretty straight forward. Ok I need a nice layer of water in the tray to give me better reflections and the lens now needs a good cleaning but it was a useful experiment and maybe tomorrow evening I'll try again. ...

Intensive photo sorting has been done this evening but I did stop long enough earlier to pic some flowers from the garden for a play. Since the camera and flashguns were downstairs I opted to be lazy and whilst experimenting with the position of the gun came up with this one. I quite like it.........

I spent a very pleasant day at the Steam Museum in Swindon today. It was a bit of a trawl getting there as I chose to go by bus having already purchased a weekly pass that would cover the trip. Still, it's a pleasant route from Cheltenham to Swindon and no changes required so I could just settle d...

A busy evening here trying to get a batch of pics ready but I've not a hope of getting them finished tonight. I did at least take a few pics earlier knowing that I'd need something with today's date on it so here's another collision pic. I'm off to the steam museum in Swindon tomorrow - I thin...

Not a lot to report today - much of the morning was spent clearing the decks and setting up for some baby, & her parents, pics this afternoon. Half the room got dumped into my bedroom and then of course it all had to be removed again. Other than that a bit of gardening - I disturbed a rath...

I pottered off to Cirencester today for a bit of a mooch and junk hunt. No junk found and very few photos were taken but it was nice to just potter with no agenda other than making sure I didn't miss the bus home. The Cirencester Hare Festival started today - I did see a few about town but didn'...

I thought I'd make a mess with oil and water tonight - only problem is I will have to tidy up and wash everything up no - ok, tomorrow. The living room looks as though a bomb has gone off :) However if the sun comes out on Saturday then I'm off to Cirencester for a mooch and then Sunday morning wi...

I thought I'd try milk with the drip machine tonight and bought a pint of regular instead of my semi-skimmed. Quite frankly my efforts were rubbish and I think a day or two away from the machine won't hurt and next time I play I'll try to do it when I've plenty of time instead of my usual rushing. ...

Well I seem to be on the wonk tonight and whatever I did didn't make the blindest bit of difference. A tad frustrating to say the least but I quit - until tomorrow :)

My plans to go back to doing a bit of still life fell by the wayside this evening as my new Yongnuo flashguns arrived today and of course I had to try them out. Ok, one of them out as I'm short of a stand but will sort something out tomorrow. I've also been rooting around the house for the box o...
