    Day 103: Bearly hanging on

    Itís no wonder our ornaments look scared, with two cats eager to climb the tree. Iíve always had cats, and somehow it just wouldnít seem like Christmas without their apparent obsession with shiny objects. For me, itís just part of the fun tha...

    Day 96: Pulsar wristwatch

    Pulsar wristwatch I think I'd be quite happy to photograph watches for a living. Each one's got its own character, and they can be quite a challenge. I've photographed this particular one before. The last time, I used a dedicated macro lens...

    Day 94: Bouquet

    Bouquet Flowers are difficult subjects. The closer you get, the more shots you find, and even a shift of a few millimetres can give a completely different composition. Youíll never get the same shot twice, and you really start to think about ...

    Day 75: Hell's Kitchen

    Hell's Kitchen It was just a simple attempt at making soup, until I decided that one of the carrots looked like a little person. Maybe I read too much of Gary Larson's "The Far Side". Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 32mm; ISO 400; F/5.6; 1/16...
