A quick view of cattyal's recent activity.

  • Still Life - Books, Bottles and Letters

    Thanks everyone and thank you Eileen for your award Smile

    I hunt down the tattiest old books I can find - pre 1900 tend to be pretty good for wear!

  • Still life with lamp

    Thanks everyone and thank you to Colleen, Patricia and Dave for your Awards - they are very much appreciated Smile

    I'll try to add more info on lighting etc. in future ....................

    Denny - mum gave me the lamp for Christmas - I've yet to investigate whether it can be restored back to life and lit again but I'm actually inclined to leave it be. I rather like it as it is and have other lamps that do work.....

  • Still Life with Bottles.......

    Huge apologies for the late return - I blame my muddled brain or advancing years or something Smile

    Thanks everyone - and thank you to Phillip and Robert for your awards - they, along with everyone's clicks - are much appreciated and again sorry for the delay.......

    As for the dug up ex-partner - may as well have buried him - he's still got a face like a wet weekend!

  • Sucked up............

    oops - sorry I'm late - Monday evening shot by in a flurry of nothingness (ok the Monday Night Challenge).

    I'm glad you find the pic amusing - I'd cleaned out the vacuum and thought it prudent to subject the Daves to this indignity before I used it again - fortunately they're game for a laugh and didn't mind............... Smile

  • Workshop bits.............

    Thanks everyone and apologies for the late return. Thank you too Peter for your Award - it is much appreciated Smile

    This is a mixture of items pinched from my dad's workshop and the tins came from a car boot - a little old cardboard suitcase full of old tins for 3 - bargain Smile

  • Shoe and Hydrangeas...............

    Once again a late thank you everyone Smile I'm having trouble keeping up at the moment. Hopefully I might squeeze in another still life or two this weekend - who knows Smile

    Thank you Sandra for your Award - it's very much appreciated. I've been adjusting my camera settings when doing still life pics lately - lowering the saturation and contrast - it works quite well.

  • A beautiful portfolio of images and I can only apologise for not clicking on more of them! Now if I had just a bit of your imagination I'd be happy but shall just have to settle for what I've got Smile
  • A wonderful and inspirational selection of pictures. And I particularly like your current profile pic Smile
