desire

As a long time Apple user...first one 1990...I am a bit of a fan. Currently I own an iPad, iPod, iPhone and iMac, but I made a mental note not to buy another Apple computer due to the incredibly quick devaluation of my pound. Then I saw this new Mac Pro and instantly tore up that mental note. I, lik...

New Road

The last few winters have caused chaos to many roads, causing potholes, cracks and uneven road surfaces so it's good to see that work appears to be finally happening around our area. Surprisingly the country roads around the village of Bradfield have already had a makeover. They do look wonderful,...

Golfless

No golf being played today. The flag was catching that cold wind. Taken on a walk around the outskirts of Worksop into Sherwood Forest. I had thermals, extra fleece layers, hat, scarf gloves, and wellies. Super protected, but like a sauna by the time I'd been out walking for half an hour. It's ...

Senseless

I went for a walk along the river Don today. The river was important for Sheffield as all the major industry settled along its course. A few years ago a path was constructed along the course so people can walk or cycle from Meadowhall in Rotherham over to Sheffield Town centre. The project is ca...

spooked

It was just meant to be a peaceful afternoon walk, but I made a mistake of going in a direction I'd never been before, following a path that seemed to be a good idea. I walked over a few fields and then arrived on the edge of a wood, then the path broke into four possible directions and none ha...

all about balance

I had made up my mind at the beginning of the year that I needed to use more of my holiday quota this year as I always waste two or three weeks. So I've been taking the odd day off here and there (Balance 1). Yesterday I took one of these impromptu days off and went for a walk with long time friend...

Missed opportunities

A week or so ago one of my old school friends, Mick Fidler died of Liver Cancer. A facebook tribute page has been set up for him and I've been looking through photos I took of him when he played in Sheffield band Artery back in the 80s. I'm so glad I took photos even though not brilliant, they are g...

A very clear day

As today started off bright, and the weather forecast conditions being clear I decided to take today off and nip up to the Lake District to climb Helvellyn. A three hour drive, but the weather was still good when I arrived. In fact it was so clear you could see the Pennines from the top of the mount...

Photography in the landscape

It was interesting to see photography being used in the landscape. The photo was about a meter and half or so wide mounted on metal posts on a Lincolnshire cycle path. It was a photo of the scene behind. And because it was far away from the villages it hadn't been vandalised, which was refreshing. ...

I like that one!

You probably have a camera with a menu system with 101 modes that you never use, and wonder why they are there. I'm the same. Over the years I've used an endless number of cameras and generally end up setting aperture priority mode, and using exposure compensation to tweak the camera's suggested exp...

freedom

This picture signifies freedom...freedom from technical perfection and freedom for the subject as though the couple are free from the dark or city life. I wouldn't post stuff like this in the gallery as it would be overlooked by all those who strive for technical perfection, but out of all ...

Big fossil

On my recent trip to Skye I went for a walk from Elgol to Camasunary bay on the cliff tops. Part of the walk passed a beach full of black rocks that I could scrambled down to. I was pleasantly surprised to find this impression. I wish I'd found what caused it but I guess that's in some showcase some...

How things have changed

I just saw a lens review on a camera equipment hire company's web site. It made me reflect on how the publishing industry has changed in the past decade or so. When I started reviewing equipment for magazines, I was in a position of authority. It was before the web, so the only advice photographe...

Peanut Feast

I'm buying nuts and seeds to attract birds to the garden for a future shoot. I already have blue tits who've decided to nest in a box I put up a few weeks ago so that was a result. Yesterday I bought a replacement fat square. It was called a Peanut Fat Feast, okay it was only a 1 but "fea...

Pointless junk mail

We all get fed up with daily email spam, spam phone calls and pointless junk mail through the letterbox. Well most of it's pointless, but this one that arrived in today's post beat the rest. The main message to get you to open the letter was "You can ignore me if you want to." So I...
