Good afternoon everyone, I hope you've all had a good week and this awful weather hasn't caused any strife for any of you.

Phew...52.5 hours at work last week for me - feeling reet canny jiggered ye knaar man Tongue !!

So, had a nice morning in my photography studio (yeah, alright...my conservatory) this morning. I know this kind of shot has all been done before but I tried to inject a bit of interest with the composition and bokeh background, not forgetting the pip. I hope you enjoy looking at it.

I'm off to the Photography Show on Saturday 1st March at the NEC in Birmingham and was thinking of taking my camera with me as I see there's an IGPOTY garden where one can take some photos and get some tips and advice from the experts.

If anyone has been to a gig like this before I'd appreciate opinions if whether it's worth taking your camera along, thanks.
Cheers Dudes

An excellent piece of close-up work, Elaine, like it a lot Smile
Not sure if I'm going to the show at the NEC this year, but it is worth taking the camera along Wink
