Amazingly I didn't spend all evening playing with the splashes though admittedly a good chunk of time was spent messing about again. The main 'problem' is that I can leave it all set up 24 hours a day so it's there tempting me when I should be doing other stuff. Heck - the other stuff is only dome...

Will someone please tell me how to stop playing with this darned machine - it's flipping wonderful :) I really could do with a 2nd working flashgun though - I can see me having to spend some money again.............

Oddly enough I decided to play with the SplashArt kit again this evening. Sadly for some reason my slave flash has decided that it doesn't want to work so I was stuck with just the one. It was something of a nuisance but I struggled on - and will doubtless struggle on again tomorrow evening :) ...

Yep - too much time has been spent again playing with the SplashArt kit - it's addictive stuff you know :) Somewhere in this house is a box of gels for the flashguns but I can't find them so a bit of gaffer tape did the job with some hastily cut bits from my large sheets. The one flashgun takes an...

As the sun was out and the sky was blue I took myself off out for the day today. First Tewkesbury and then Gloucester. I bought a couple of items to add to my ever-growing prop collection and took a few snaps down at Gloucester Docks. I've done both Tewkesbury and Gloucester so many times that I ...

Ha - I found a flashgun - not the one I was looking for but it'll do. Ok, not a great pic but a huge improvement :)

I was out all day again as usual but once I got home I felt it essential that I at least plug in my new SplashArt kit and try it out. My next challenge will be to a) find my flipping flashgun and b) actually get the collisions in focus......... I love it though!

This evening didn't go quite according to play but at least I did spent a brief amount of time earlier with the camera. I anticipate being out all day on Saturday but, depending on the weather (ie. if it's sunny then I'm going out, I plan to try out the SplashArt kit.

It was a tad foggy this morning which I quite enjoy. Sadly I had to go to work - I'd have rather wandered up to the park but hey ho. By afternoon the sun came out which was also rather pleasant! My SplashArt kit arrived today - roll on the weekend when hopefully I might be able to try it out! ...

As usual I left the weekly B&W challenge to last minute and legged it into the garden as soon as I got home to find something 'low level' to photograph. Fortunately there were about 3 scabby daisies in the lawn. I had intended to find something during my lunchbreak to photograph - I had vagu...

I remembered this evening :) I did some still life pics earlier but the background didn't come out terribly well so I gave up. However at least a heavy crop resulted in this which is ok - not good enough to pop in my portfolio but better than nothing for my blog! I'm hoping town produces so...

Oops - I totally forgot to do my blog yesterday (Monday) - no excuse - just a distinct lack of brain power last night :) I'm not helped by only taking a couple of pics yesterday - one was the effort I uploaded to my portfolio - and the other was for the Monday Night Challenge on the subject of sp...

Despite having stuff like vacuuming and wotnot to do today, there was no way I was going to stay indoors when the sun was out, the sky was blue and it was warm enough to go bare armed :) I'm not about to waste weather like that! I went off to Gloucester for a wander. Sadly my favourite junk/ant...

I did my usual trip to Slimbridge today, via Stroud. I would have come back with a few goodies from a couple of the charity shops in Stroud had the person in front of me in one not had a great big pile of stuff to buy and assistants that were moving in slow motion. In another shop I had about 30 ...

A quickie tonight - again. My nephew and his dog are visiting so I thought I'd try a few quick pics of Jet. Next time I'll sort out a proper background instead of cobbling it together :)
