Photo365 - 37 - bleak day

What a day...miserable most of the day at home weather wise but I saw a break and thought it would be worth going out to Derbyshire with the Lee Filters Big Stopper to get some cloud movement shots against rocks. How wrong I was. It was cold and extremely windy. On the edges so windy I nearl...

Photo365 - 36 - Gas Mask

I've had the gas mask for ages now. I bought it for model shoots, but I hadn't realised they were dangerous due to asbestos content. So it's been in a bag in the garage. I also bought a smoke machine over two years ago, also with the intention of doing atmospheric model shoots. So today I decided to...

A long overdue overall of my TV aerial meant an old aerial was taken down and the house rewired to a new more powerful one. The signal on my TV is now wonderfully tuned...and the old aerial is ready for the skip. As it lays there I cannot help seeing an abstract art work in it. So a cropped shot...

Photo365 - 34 - kiwi slice

Fruit can make good still life subject - either whole or, in this case, sliced and backlit. Certain fruit such as kiwi, lemon, lime, orange look great when lit from behind as the light shining through makes the slice look almost translucent with the seeds and textures picked up as interesting patter...

Photo365 - 33 - Sophia

Katie, a friend of mine, made a surprise visit today and called with her new born Sophia. I took a few photos using my semi-retired Pentax K10D (the K20D has developed a fault). I used window light and got some big reflections in the eyes. This was one of my favourite.

I tend to realise I haven't taken many days off somewhere around mid November, so this year I thought I'd spread them through the year. And my first day off was today to go on a walk with my brother and sister in law. We parked the car at the wall of the Dam Flask in Lower Bradfield, nr Sheffield an...

Photo365 - 31 - Black Tie

Today I wore a black tie. It's the first time it's been out since my father's funeral over six years ago. And it's the smartest I've looked for about three years. I was at the funeral of a lady who it turns out was very well liked. The church was packed . In her husband's speech I learnt a lot a...

Photo365 - 29 - McFlurry

My daily Photo365 is a fast photo of fast food - A limited edition Lion Bar McFlurry. The photo is as creative as the ice cream churned into the cup.

Photo365 - 28 - Twilight

I'll be taking an Olympus EP2 camera with me more often on my daily walk. It's small enough to fit in a coat pocket and versatile enough to cope with SLR style shooting. This evening I was out at twilight and photographed the Worksop town centre clock with Barclays bank in the background. The ca...

The old Worksop library closed a few months back when the new two story modern one was opened. It cost 8.4m to build and has state of the art features including a self loan & return system, a cafe, an internet area and modern but almost clinical bookshelves. When it first opened it was regul...

I've never been one for routines, but I'm now forced into one... daily medication. In one way it's frustrating, in another it's critical..well that's what I and many other who've had a heart attack are lead to believe. And not only for the heart...according to recent research an aspirin a day, when ...

I've been out on a meeting today and the time didn't allow me to take any pictures during the day but I am in the process of testing the new Tamron 18-270mm superzoom. And I have an Olympus EP2 that I'm enjoying the company of, so what better to shoot a product shot in the form of a still-life using...

Photo365 - 24 - The Splodge

My colleague Nik asked me this morning if I had any photos of droplets - the type you take with a subject behind and focus on the droplet. I didn't have any decent ones so that was my cue for today's Photo365 image. Tonight I arrange two chairs back to back balance a sheet of glass between them a...

Photo365 - 23 - Highland Cow

Probably my favourite photo from my Photo365 series so far. Almost like a present following the heavy week I've had. It's a Highland cow taken on Baslow Edge in Derbyshire I was out testing the new Tamron 18-270mm lens on a Nikon D90. I'd gone to photograph a sunset and although the sun broke t...
