Oops - late tonight - I've just been watching the Musketeers on the box. Not bad, pretty to watch and if I've nowt better to do next weekend I'll watch the next episode. Meanwhile not much picture taking done again today - I did wander into town this morning as the weather was far too nice to st...

I bumbled over to Gloucester today on a 'junk' hunting expedition. It wasn't all that fruitful but I did come home with a few items - of course I don't have enough stuff round here and always need more :) The weather was quite nice when I took this photo. Unfortunately the cathedral was closed ...

Well the weekend is here and who knows what it will bring. It all depends on the weather in the morning whether I wander off out on a junk hunting expedition or stay home and get 'stuff' done - time will tell. Now however I've a bit of painting I want to do so I did a very quick pic earlier this...

A quick experiment today - well yesterday really as that's when I mixed the gelatine, put it in the glass, covered the glass with sellotape, inverted it and hoped for the best. I'm trying a different method tonight so I shall find out tomorrow if it worked :)

Minimal effort this evening - where usually lies bright ideas and inspiration lies only gungy snotty stuff and a load of cotton wool :) I can't complain though - I very rarely get colds and I'm sure I'll survive. I blame the boss - he was wandering round the office most of last week all horrible a...

Ok- now I've got the Nautilus shell - the next trick will be to turn it into a Nautilus Cup :) I've not a clue how I'm going to do that - I think I'll ponder it for a while........

I'm still messing about with the glass pics - this time with a different background - the large sheet of gloss white plastic now. It's certainly better - now I need to concentrate on sparkling glasses and dust removal :)

Well that's another weekend over and again not enough time to fit everything in that needs doing and also include some playing. I did pop out for an hour this morning, did a bit of tidying and stuff but then thought soddit and got the glasses out again. I still need to work on a suitable backg...

So that's Saturday almost over and done with. I'm sitting here full of voddy having been out to Slimbridge as usual. I did do a few glass pictures after I got home this evening but have instead decided to upload one from my day. This was taken from the top of the bus whilst waiting for departur...

I picked up some el cheapo glasses on the way home so now I have some matching sets. I'm rather enjoying messing about with them - I've more plans for pics but that may have to wait until next week - a bit of preparation is required and I'm unlikely to be able to do that until Sunday. I'll sur...

I thought I'd play with the perspex this evening - I thought half an hour would be enough and then I could get on with something useful. Fat chance - the trouble is when you start with this game it's hard to stop. I started with plain light - then remembered the roll of gels I have stashed away so...

Back to the still life playing this evening and I thought I'd add the odd inappropriate object to the arrangement. It didn't really work as I saw it in my head but never mind - it amused me.

The water drop mess is being tidied away tomorrow but I thought I'd do a few more first - adding blue food dye dye to the water. I'm watching a programme on still life painting at the moment - I feel a visit to the veg shop coming on!!!

So that's another evening that's shot by at an alarming speed and not a lot to show for it. I didn't help myself by deciding to play at some water drop pics - leaving me about 5 minutes to take a quick pic ready for the Monday Night Challenge. Then I went back to the water drops and had a mad das...

Right - that's Sherlock finished so time to pop up a quick pic and then grind to a halt again. Inspiration was once more in very short supply which is always annoying when I have the time to play. I did at least manage a couple of pics this afternoon - I'll be cussing tomorrow when I'm stuck ...
