I bought this old postcard from eBay and photographed it in situ. I also had a postcard of the Priory but the photo needed to be taken from inside the school playground and it's been closed and fenced off. It's quite tricky to match up well, but I didn't do bad with this one. I moved it back and for...

A marble resting on fingers, backlit using a soft box covered studio light. I desaturated to give an almost monchrome feel.

Photo365 - 288 - misty morning

View from the park this morning. I was just out a bit too late to catch the thicker mist, but then again I was up at 3:00am learning how to stack star trails that I'd just taken.

Photo365 - 287 - Shadows

Today was another remarkably warm day, and as the sun was low in the sky shadows were interesting. This is my rusty metal resting near a brick wall, and a garden chair causing the shadows. I split the elements in such a way that it now looks like two photos but it is just one.

My Olympus EP2 and Toy lens fitted with 10x macro lens provide more fun as I played around in the kitchen. I was shooting surface top still-lifes of various kitchen things, and then poked the camera into the kitchen utensil draw. I hovered it around until this appeared in the viewfinder. I think...

Photo365 - 282 - Yellow Pages

When I was young I took a job delivering Yellow Pages (telephone directory) in my spare time in the Wadsley area of Sheffield. I was paid something like 7p per book to deliver. and it helped fund my photography while I was working in retail. It was hard work, and for a week my parents house was ful...

Photo365 - 281 screw blues

Another shot taken with my current favourite lens...the toy lens with a macro adaptor attached. The focusing and halation / aberrations is wonderful for macro work. I love just moving the camera around slowly to obtain focus point. In this example. I picked up a handful of screws and dropped them on...

Photo365 - 280 - Paint abstract

A tin of purple paint with the lid off. The light caught the rime and scattered across the paint creating an interesting abstract pattern that I thought was worth recording. Pentax K20D and 100mm macro lens.

A parcel arrived today from Burning Shed containing my order for Steven Wilson's deluxe edition of Grace For Drowning. I already have the media book version but thought this would be a nice item for my collection and if it's like most of Steven's other stuff it will become highly sort after in years...

I'm embarrassed to say this is my first ever viewing of a sunrise in Derbyshire. I was put off many years ago when I cycled from Hillsborough to Fox house to do my first sunrise and there was thick cloud and the light was awful. I've been meaning to set the alarm for the last seven years bu...
