I'm playing catch up after a week's holiday in Gran Canaria - this was taken on 17 November 2011 A sculpture found on the paseo costa canaria. I used the hipstamatic camera in the iPhone and chose grainy black and white film mode.

Photo365 - 319 - boat repairs

I'm playing catch up after a week's holiday in Gran Canaria - this was taken on 15 November 2011 A walk in the boat yard at the marina of Puerto de Mogán provided a good opportunity to shoot people restoring their boats. I have a closer shot of this chap but like this version for the sense of sca...

I'm playing catch up after a week's holiday in Gran Canaria - this was taken on 14 November 2011 This is of the big wheel at the Holiday World fairground in Maspalomas. I mounted the Olympus EP2 on a tripod to hold it steady for a 10sec exposure at f/22 ans ISO200.

I'm playing catch up after a week's holiday in Gran Canaria - this was taken on 13 November 2011 We'd hired a car to go in to the mountains and took the road up to Roque Nublo. We stopped at various scenic points along the way and the light was at times amazing. On the walking ascent to Roque Nublo...

I'm playing catch up after a week's holiday in Gran Canaria - this was taken on 12 November 2011 We stopped in a bungalow at the Cordial Green Golf in Maspalomas. The first thing I noticed on arrival was the number of cats. This one had beautiful blue eyes.

Photo365 - 314 - Rivelin Valley

Will Cheung had today off and asked if I wanted to go taking photos. So I booked the day off too and suggested we went over to Riverlin Valley as I knew the leaves would be fresh on the ground and the river has some interesting areas. As a child I spent most of the school holidays and weekends ei...

Photo365 - 313 - Yes

Will Cheung emailed this morning to say he'd been to see Yes last night, and that they were playing Sheffield. I looked them up and realised the gig was tonight. So I quickly ordered a ticket and managed to get centre position in the Circle at the Sheffield City Hall. I've been listening to Yes ...

...or a stupid idea to see what happens inside a washing machine with a fisheye lens. Good fun trying A to get in, B to operate the camera phone, C to get the light in the right place and D to find the right angle. I quite like this one.

Photo365 - 311 - the delay

I was subjected to a one hour delay on my visit to the hospital this evening for a routine check up. I'd hoped to record the delay message on the board in the background as well as the figure, but sadly the capabilities of the iPhone's exposure system couldn't cope. I've deliberately darkened the ph...

I went to the Whitby Goth Festival today. I decided to travel light with the Olympus Pen E-P2 and used its 40-150mm zoom. The intention was to take candids, but as usual as soon as you point the camera at anyone and they spot you they switch into pose mode. I lost count of the number of times I aske...

Went to Lincoln Tokyo last night for what I thought was going to be a Katy B gig with her on stage at 10:30. It was a club night...banging DJ so the sound was great but I was amongst hundreds of young revellers and felt slightly out of place. At 12am we heard she was on at 1am, at 1:30am we were tol...

Photo365 - 308 - I found gold

Inspired by a fellow ePHOTOzine blogger, Stewart (bfgstew) I decide to get my British made BPM bellows out and connect them to my Olympus Pen EP2 via a T2 /micro 4 thirds adaptor , and mounted a Pentax 50mm f/1.4 on the front. I then poked the contraption at some bonfire toffee, but didn't like the ...

Photo365 - 307 - honesty pod

This honesty seed pod is looking a little worse for wear and I'm surprised it's not split and scattered its seeds yet. Photographed in summer they are a lush green - backlighting still works now and creates an interesting glowing effect. Taken with the K20D and 16-45mm zoom. A low autumn sunligh...
