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...

Another week passes and not much noticeable advancement. I will continue taking interval shots until the project is finished...and then I'll go a watch a film. Taken with the iphone and hdr camera app

Taken this evening at a gig in Lincoln's new venue "Tokyo" Benjamin Francis Leftwich is a great acoustic guitarist, with a wonderfully smooth and mellow voice. Very enjoyable. Olympus EP2 with the 40-150mm zoom.

Photo365 - 274 - rusty conkers

Conkers in case on my rusty metal background. A polariser was used to remove some of the glare from the naturally polished surfaces

This was a tricky one and I don't think I pulled it off...but that's for you to decide. I was drinking a can of lemonade...the type you get abroad that has a really refreshing taste as it's packed with real lemons (well 16%) I spotted them in Sainsburys and it's always one of the things I enjoy...

Well the things are an iphone set to hipsatmatic with colour infrared film and a fisheye lens. Yesterday I looked down on me in a record shop. Today I look up at the library roof. The fisheye lens crams a lot into the frame.

Last night I met someone who I've admired for over 10 years. Steven Wilson, the man behind Porcupine Tree. He was at a record signing in Record Collector Sheffield. I have most of the Porcupine Tree albums on CD and each unfolds a series of incredible tracks - almost in the realms of prog rock, but ...

Today I met my music idol - Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree. He was at a signing of his new album at my favourite record shop - Record Collector in Sheffield. I've been shopping their for 35 years. Porcupine Tree haven't played Sheffield in ages (well certainly not in the last 10 years) so it w...

Photo365 - 270 - fly agaric

Taken today on a quick visit to Clumber Park in search of fungi. There were lots of flat topped fly agarics but not many of these closed ones. This time I not only took the closer shots but some more environmental ones like this. The 100mm has a good rounded aperture which gives great out of focus...

Photo365 - 269 - flat

I'm still playing with the toy lens + 10 macro adaptor on the Olympus EP2. This is straight out of the cameras - a setting on a hosepipe multi spray nozzle. I set the white balance to cloudy to get the warm tone.

Photo365 - 268 - leather bag

I'm really enjoying my new found super blurry close up lens creation featuring the Toy Lens and Macro adaptor lens attached to an Olympus EP2. The combination gives incredibly shallow depth of field with vignetting and unusual bokeh. This is the curve of a leather bag.

Photo365 - 267 - leaf

As you may know from reading some of my blog entries I like to mess around with unsual lens combinations. This morning I attached the Toy lens onto the Olympus EP2 and then screwed in a +10 macro lens. This macro lens is part of an old fisheye macro converter. It gives good sharpness in centre but...

Photo365 - 266 - ladybird

I was about to set the camera up to photograph a tomato that had fallen of my badly looked after tomato plant and a ladybird scuttled past. So I took a grab shot. I could have enticed the critter to do a few more takes to perfect it but I liked the spontaneity. So here it is.

Photo365 - 265 Cherries

A pair of cherries photographed on an infinity curve backdrop using my homemade ringlight from above Pentax K20D and 100mm macro.

Another from a series charting the building progress of the new cinema in Worksop. I will stand in the same spot once or twice each week and take a shot with the iPhone's HDR camera app.
