  • 365 Day 293 - A single rose bud

    Here we are in mid October and the roses are still lovely in my garden. This is a particular favourite of mine, I have forgotten its name but it has a lovely scent and lasts a good few days in water. 0

  • 365 Day 292 - My favourite tipple

    I said in an earlier post that there was nothing quite like a lovely cappuccino - I lied! 0

  • 365 Day 291 - Huntley Church

    Back to my course again and this time I have to take the same photograph of the inside of buildings but in different lighting conditions. I thought the local church would be a good place to start because on a grey day like today you get reasonable c...0

  • 365 Day 290 - Elgar statue, Hereford

    A visit to the Haven in Hereford today and as usual I put a little extra time on my car park so that I could have a walk round the Cathedral. This statue of Sir Edward Elgar, leaning against his Sunbeam bicycle stands on the edge of the Cathedral gr...0

  • 365 Day 289 - Who needs Costa?

    I do like a cappuccino but am quite fussy about where I buy it. Costa - yes, Starbucks - definitely no, but actually my home made version is pretty good too. Made with skimmed milk and no sprinkles as I'm watching my waistline, can't beat it! 0

  • 365 Day 288 - Distractions

    Today our game of golf was a little bit more important than the norm as we were putting cards in for our handicaps. This is my husband teeing off, whilst the greensmen stand behind him having a chat and with the tractor running. I'd have given them...0

  • 365 Day 287 - Where are the geese?

    For the last few evenings I have sat and watched skene after skene of geese (not sure if that is the correct spelling), I assume on their way to Slimbridge which is quite near us but by the time I have got my camera sorted out they have all gone. To...0

  • 365 Day 286 - Mahonia Japonica

    Next week's macro challenge is one leaf and I have been looking for an excuse to play around with these mahonia leaves for a little while. They are a little bit like holly leaves but change colour and are just starting to change now. As it was a pr...0

  • 365 Day 285 - Another shot of Katie

    Little Katie hasn't been too well. They were concerned about her breathing and she has to be reminded to feed, even then she is not that keen. My daughter in law has to undress her and cool her down and apparently that stimulates her need to feed!...0

  • 365 Day 284 - Astrantia again

    Today I have been playing around with astrantia flowers again looking for this illusive dreamy look. I started with a pale cream wall and natural diffused light and took some photos of a whole stem and also some close ups of just the head of the flo...0

  • 365 Day 283 - The thief

    Marathon upload today but I am finally up to date and ending with something that really blew me away. This afternoon I was in town, one or two bits of shopping but still an hour left on my car parking ticket so I decided to take a quick look at th...0

  • 365 Day 282 - Next week's b&w challenge!

    Talk about being well organised! Not really, there is nothing on the tele and I'm employing avoidance tactics with my photography course. The theme for the next black and white challenge is 'glass' What better glass than Nikon glass, or should tha...0

  • 365 Day 281 - Weekly black and white challenge

    I didn't manage to get anything into the black and white challenge last week and only just made it with a last minute botch up job tonight. The theme was 'rush or relax' and I chose some of my favourite music to relax to. Someone asked where the pint...0

  • 365 Day 280 - Astrantia

    I love the way that other photographers manage to get this really dreamy effect with flower photography. I read somewhere that one thing that I needed to do was lower the clarity which I have tried to do here but it hasn't really made that much dif...0

  • 365 Day 279 - Weekly macro challenge

    Well ahead of myself this week. I didn't manage to enter the macro challenge last week so thought I would get in early this time. This is part of a set of Portmeirion pastry forks and spoons given to me by my mother in law. We never have anythin...0
