Mounts & Frames

For a long time many of the shots that I initially took when I bought my first DSLR, sank from being images that I was relatively pleased with, to items which made me shudder. And for the very few that I have retained, they still do make me shudder. Violently. Many have sunk much lower than simpl...

Studio - Day 2

Well if you followed my progress through Day 1 and the subsequent upload of my bottle of Baileys and two glasses, you will know that there was one other thing that I could also have got wrong, that I didn't; but apart from that every other photographic offence in the book was committed yesterday. :...

Ruminating

Chewin' th' Cud. Since the New Year I've been thinking a lot about what I am. What I have. What I do. Such activity can be very beneficial, or virtually soul destroying. But, as Anne and possibly others will testify I'm sure, having had a stroke(s), there are some days when I feel a fraud bec...

2012

2012 has, so far, largely .................... I've lost a lot of money due to a scan/scam on two of my cards, which fortunately the bank have seen fit to immediately replace into my account. But I'm still waiting for new cards to come through the post, due to the originals being compromised. I on...
