    More wildlife togging. I was throwing some stuff in the composter and noticed this delightful looking creature, amongst lots of other creepy, slimey things. Butternut and slug soup anyone?

    I had to have words with my daughters boyfriend regarding these flowers. The flowers are getting on a bit now but since he bought them alll I've had is: "You never buy me flowers" on and on and on. Buy them again and I'll break yer arms!

  • Project 365-12

    So I was in the Amazonian rain forest this morning, and blow me if I shouldn't bump in to an old Bristol K. I didn't expect that and thought I had better take a picture to prove authenticity. I think the high humidity affected my film somehow. :P

  • Project 365-10

    I'm lovin' this project, it's forcing me to take my camera everywhere and to try and get a shot. I had this one in mind as soon as I parked the car in the multi-storey. I wanted to try out the 'tilt/shift generator' app on the iPad. Not brilliant but...

    I walked down into the depths of the workshops today and found carnage. Massive pile-up on one of the fitters workbenchs. I didn't see any injured people, hopefully they all got out ok. Taken with the Oly XZ-1 and processed in Snapseed.

  • Project 365-8

    My favourite model again today. I did actually take a whole load of still life images with the Nikon D300s that I haven't even looked at yet. I just saw the cat and happened to be in easy reach of the XZ-1. If it was video you would have heard Taz sa...

  • Project 365-7

    Day 7 and I was on the prowl, little did I know the cat was on the prowl too. Fortunately I had Oly in hand and was able to fend him off. I was lucky to escape with my life. :D

  • Project 365-6

    A bicycle reflector. I have to say I think this project is going to be much easier knowing that I can just grab my small Oly XZ-1 to take a quick pic, rather than having to get out the D300s and decide on what lens to use, although that could be anot...

  • Project 365-5

    Not quite the cat's whiskers this one, more the cat's paw. I was testing out the macro capabilities of the Oly XZ-1 and took this from about an inch away. Fiddled with in Silver Efex Pro 2
