  • Camera Bag

    I've been in bag making mode lately - I wanted a new camera bag but not your usual obvious camera bag. For a long time I've used an insert which I've put in a regular tote bag but I decided it was time to make my own bag. The first one came out o...0

    The End - the final image of my mobile phone 365 and please someone remind me not to do another for a long long time! Admittedly elsewhere I've done daily photo uploads for years - well the last one I missed was March 2010 - but it's another matte...0

    Once again I was snapping away on the bus today though of course the view tends to be the same as I always take the same route. At least the cattle move about a bit but alas no sign of the Highland Coos today. I did see a cute little calf though :)...0

    Once again I was standing at the bus-stop waiting for my ride home so took the opportunity to play with the phone again. First I used one of my saved 'looks' and then used the double exposure to add a layer - which you can see went on a bit wonky. ...0

    The only annoying thing about having the iphone is that Little Photo, an android app that I really like, doesn't have a version for the iphone. So, I applied a few of my favourite textures to a blank white page, saved them to my laptop as a texture ...0

    Nothing remotely artistic today - just a snap of my ex-pond. The frogs stopped spawning in it a few years ago for some reason and the water level kept dropping so quickly. Add to that the fact that Ledley (my cat) has fallen in it twice and a chap...0

    This weeks Black & White Weekly Challenge is Public Transport so I played with the mobile a bit whilst on the way to work. A bit heavy on the grain I think so I may try again tomorrow...................... 0

    I took a slightly earlier bus to work this morning so walked very very slowly across the playing field, took a couple of snaps of the view and again played with the filters in Snapseed - maybe a bit too heavy on the grunge this time ) 0

    Another snap of Ledley today - he has an incredibly hard life you know - I slave away blitzing the bathroom and he stretches out at the top of the stairs snoozing and keeping half an eye on me. 0

    My morning was spent trying to be domestic and getting a few jobs done around the house. Actually I did manage to empty two boxes and added more to the big charity shop pile that is growing in the back room (I'll try to get that picked up this week)...0

    This week's Weekly Black & White Challenge is Public Transportation so I thought I'd take a snap or two with the mobile on the bus this morning. I think I'd better try again :) 0

    The sun was out, the sky was blue with fluffy clouds so I went to the park this lunchtime. However it was a tad too breezy to get any decent flower pics :) (ok I was using the slow shutter app on the phone so it was a 1 second exposure at ISO 50 - ...0

    It took an age for the double decker bus I was on to get past this cyclist this morning. It's an uphill ride with double whites that go on forever and lots of bends so we were stuck there for some time. However we got past in the end and I spent a...0

    My lunchbreak was spent up at the park as it was a nice sunny day. Well close on 20 minutes walking there, 20 minutes pottering and then the walk back to work. This is the underpass which connects both bits of the park - the lake, play area and pum...0

    Alas just a single photo was taken on the mobile today and that was when I was sitting at the bus stop- again- waiting to go into town after work. I usually walk but was lugging a load of cat food so chose the easy option. This is one of the entran...0
