    365 - 9 - continuation usung a flash

    Spent an hour or two this morning experimenting with the flash. I have a sigma ring flash that has been in the cupboard for years, forgot I had it, bought it years ago when in my macro phase, will have to get it used this week on a few weeds. I may h...

    Day 218: Spokes

    Another day on the bike, but I didnít take any photos while I was out, so I opted for another detail shot on return. This was another one of those shots where I considered the focal length to use first, needing a wide angle and minimal distortion...

    Day 211: A reason to exercise caution

    This was the only photograph I took today, and it really reminded me of a glass sheet hologram that I gave to my dad one fatherís day. However, part of the reason for that can be seen in the petal in the rear left of the photograph. If you look ...

    Day 201: On the move again

    Iíve barely stopped for the last few days, what with my recent secondment starting, and planning various things for the local Photographic Society. Tonight I displayed some on my older work, and it seemed to go down well. I was rather rushed though...

    Todayís photograph is of a gift given to me by a friend at work. Iíve had a very sudden change of location within the same company which Iím hoping will be a very good opportunity for me. In many ways Iím sad to be leaving though, as itís been a wo...

    Day 198: Tokens of a former life

    This is a collection of some the State quarters that I accumulated before leaving the US a few years ago. Unfortunately there were another ten circulated after I left, so Iíve not got the full set. However, I do have one for each of the eleven stat...

    The Aston Martin DB9 is one of my favourite cars of all time. Itís a beautiful piece of engineering, and Iím proud to say I own this one. Unfortunately, Iíve got no chance of driving it, seeing as itís only a few inches long Still, a guy can dream...

    Day 191: Paper swallowtail

    Another origami piece today, and my favourite of several butterfly designs by Michael G. Lafosse. The beauty of a lot of his work is the simplicity behind it, and the scope for variation within the designs. I think the paper I used for this one wor...

    Day 189: Elsecar Reservoir

    I visited a different location this evening for a walk around. It turned into a really lovely evening, and I even got to see a kingfisher zipping across the pond five minutes into my walk (although that makes my last two attempts to find one eve...

    Day 186: Looking back and forwards

    Whilst we were trying to plan our wedding reception today we ended up reminiscing and pulling out the old photo albums. I still kick myself when I think about the fact that I spent three years living in heart of the Lake District, and then took ...

    Day 185: Crab Spider

    This little fellow (and he was small, as youíll see if you skip forward a bit) was trucking across the floor of my home today. I relocated him to the sink to see just how close I could get, sticking a +3 dioptre on to the front of the lens, and ...
