    Day 86: Colour swatches

    I chose this simple composition from the items on the windowsill, and the swatches that we painted on to our wall, prior to decorating the living room. My house is full of items like these. The starfish were actually place settings from my fri...

    Day 83: A prior engagement...

    A prior engagement Ten years ago, I innocently gave a friend a stitch-bound notebook with her favourite poem on the front. She was a little upset, and I wanted to cheer her up. We went our separate ways, and hardly spoke over the next six yea...

    Day 51: Stretching toward the sun

    Stretching toward the sun I finally managed to find some mushrooms this morning, in nearby Wooley Wood. I caught sight of these two as the sun disappeared behind the brow of the hill, and couldnít help but notice their resemblance to acorns, ...

    Day 45: Pasta

    Pasta I took a look around the kitchen for inspiration today, and settled on this pasta. After realising how much the pasta warmed up the colour of the flash as it shone through it, I figured out that I could effectively get two colours out ...

    Day 43: Dragonfly porn

    Dragonfly porn Today I really pushed the boundaries (of the 18-270, and politeness) to see just how close you could really get by adding a close-up dioptre. Turns out, you can get pretty close. There has been no cropping of this image at all....

    Day 38: Streaking

    Todayís entry is a little experiment in colour, made up of a few colouring pencils. Nothing technically difficult, just something a little different to brighten up what has been a rather grey (if still very warm) day. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270...

    Day 30: Ladybird on corn leaf

    Today marked the end of my first month with the Tamron 18-270. Itís been a real eye-opener, and Iím starting to look for things to photograph wherever I go. Iím becoming aware of the limits of the lens, which in turn is forcing me to find creativ...

    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 macr...

    Day 27: Sidewinder

    Sidewinder... ÖActually, just a curly strip of paper on another bit of paper, but I love the way that the low lighting picks up the textures. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 270mm; 200 ISO; f/10; 1/320 second. VC on.

    Day 14: Common Hawkers

    We had a sudden improvement in the weather this morning, which brought the local dragonfly population out in droves. The 18-270 wasnít the only lens I took out with me today, but it was the only one I could use to get a shot of this amorous coupl...

    Day 3: Totally ForkedÖ

    Tried out the close range abilities of the 18-270mm today. The documentation of the lens will tell you that it can focus as closely as 50cm away. In real world terms, this is only about twice the distance from the front lens element to the eyepiece...
