  • 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

  • 365 Day 278 - From the driving range

    Still working on this blessed course although inspiration and motivation is sadly lacking at the moment. I am still on the section where I have to find purpose build spaces and photograph them from the point of view of the user. Well, I had a golf l...0

  • 365 Day 277 - Tall ship in Gloucester Dock

    In August, several tall ships arrived in Gloucester docks for the filming of a new Hollywood movie, Through the Looking Glass. Apparently Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp were amongst the cast. Much as I love tall ships, I stayed away as I unde...0

  • 365 Day 276 - Gladiola bud

    Today I bought 2 bunches of gladiolas in the supermarket for 1.50 a bunch. Not sure how long the flowers will last or even if they will all come out, but I've had fun photographing some of the buds with a macro lens! 0

  • 365 Day 275 - For sale

    A couple of months ago I posted a photograph of our lovely old neighbour on her 94th birthday. She has gone into a care home as she is no longer able to care for herself. Yesterday her house went on the market to pay for her care. Really sad! 0

  • 365 Day 273 - Dreamy dalia

    I don't have dalias in my garden but was given these after yesterday's golf match and wanted to try softer effect. I had been told that in order to achieve that, I should use a wide aperture, apply about -20 on the clarity slider and just sharpen th...0

  • 365 Day 271 - Katie Grace again

    The trouble is that when you have a new baby, nothing gets done, not even the planned photograph. They came for Sunday lunch today and I took this with my phone so that I could text it though to my sister in law. So busy with dinner and family that...0

  • 365 Day 270 - From the drivers seat

    An odd photo today, again to fit in the my OCA course. I had to find 2 or 3 internal buildings or spaces which were designed for a specific purpose and take photographs from the position of the user of the space. It was quite tough to think of some...0

  • 365 Day 269 - Weekly macro challenge - blue

    Another multi functional photograph today, this week's Macro Challenge. The theme was blue, a veiled reference to what has been happening in Scotland but I'm not going to be drawn on that other than to say that at I won't have to apply for a new pas...0

  • 365 Day 268 - Katie Grace

    This little girl has no idea how much angst she has caused her parents over the last few weeks. Not due until October, she has made her presence felt for some weeks as a result of which her mum has spent 10 days of the last month in hospital. Mum h...0

  • 365 Day 267 - Uninvited guests

    I haven't done nearly as much flower photography as I had hoped this year, just don't seem to have had the time. Today I was wandering round the garden with my camera and I had in my mind that I might capture some of the seed heads on a clematis pla...0

  • 365 Day 266 - Westbury on Severn Church

    This morning it was the dentist and as I was a little bit early I decided to take a look inside the church which is just along the road. It is an odd building. From the road it looks like a fairly ordinary old church building but as you walk throug...0

  • 365 Day 256 - My kitchen

    This is an odd photograph to post here I know but I am working on my OCA course again and needed to take photographs of an 'internal space' which could be domestic or public. I am supposed to think about the purpose of the space, who uses it and how...0
