Flying the Flags

Not sure about this shot. I feel as if I could have done something better with it but can't think what given the crowds. Anyway, I'll give it an airing here.

Just Passing By

Wandering around town, just itching to photograph something, and this is it. Not totally awe-inspiring - just shoppers passing by a nondescript doorway. Well, you have to do something. :)

Half Time

Went to see a play last night at the Lyttleton and it was quite funny. A lot of swearing and poking fun at those involved in the newspaper/phone-hacking scandal. I was enjoying a lovely caramel and nut ice cream in the break when I noticed this lady reading. Obviously, being nosey, I needed to know...

So Tiring

Went to Greenwich today to see a photo exhibition but I got the venue wrong and I should have gone to Woolwich. Oh well, it was a nice day. So instead of mooching around I took a trip on City Cruises down the Thames to Tower Bridge to save getting back on the underground. Someone wasn't quite as i...

Alone

Not much to report. The best thing I did lately was buy a secondhand Canon S100 to replace the nice black one I gave to my husband. They're dead cheap now and I was really pleased to find one in a shop in town so I have a 6-month guarantee. :) Been to a couple of exhibitions and stuff but nothing s...

Can't Do It ...

.................. let it go, that is. Have been seriously thinking about selling the 60D and 17-55mm f2.8 (lovely lens), and others, due to tendonitis. I can hardly lift the stuff and the M4/3 equipment is so much lighter. But having got the gear out again and taken a few snaps I've gone all und...

How to Poo

Now, if you were looking for a lovely present for your hubby, boyfriend, dad, etc., would you choose one of these booklets? Well, some of you might. :D Mind you, Test Your Dog looks interesting.

The Brave and the Weedy

There was me last night with all the lights on, windows shut and a pillow over my head. I hate lightning and thunder, and it was a biggie, well, two biggies actually. There was Gracie, laying on the bed with me with not a care in the world. No flinching, no hiding, and seemingly sleeping like a...

Cheapo G3

Thanks to a tip off from KingBee I got myself a Panasonic G3 as it was so cheap. Having been used to a G5 there are a few things on the older model I'm not keen on but it's a bit of fun and is fine as a back-up. Using the kit lens that came with it, which is the standard 14-42mm non IOS, I've been...

Allure

Some females still have "it", even when they've been spayed. This entire tom was very interested indeed in my Gracie but he's barking up the wrong tree there. It didn't put him off though and she was quite laid back about all the fuss, but as soon as he got too close she swished her tail...

New Shoes and Lighting

Had an interesting day today at BBC TV Centre in London where we went for a tour. Took loads of pics, mostly of lighting because that's what my OH does for living and he wanted some pics for an article he's writing, but I took the opportunity to snap my new shoes which looked rather nice in the col...

On Guard

Gracie's had a lovely day today patrolling her garden. She's chased a rat, which got away. Then she shouted at a bunch of pigeons and managed to keep them away from the water bowls for hours by just laying next to them. Black fluffy pussy from next door got short shrift and was soon seen off and s...

Cacks and Lenses

It's been a funny week. I've veered from bored stiff, to worrying about rats incessantly, to being worn out. But today I felt a bit more normal. This has probably got to do with the fact that it's a bit cooler and I felt in the mood to pick up a camera. I've been reading through the forums aga...

Buyers' Day

Every year I go to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. It's a bit of a scrum but fun at the same time. Last year I bought a stone lithograph so automatically got an invite to Buyers' Day this year. I thought it'd be a bit quieter - no chance. It was packed solid. I missed out on one picture I'd ...

Nostalgia

One of the windows of Selfridges in London has been filled with old cameras to advertise some make-up or something. But I was stopped in my tracks when I spotted my very first two cameras ever! Well, the box brownie was my dads but I used to fiddle about with it as a kid. The little beauty that re...
