I'm still here......

I've not been as active as I should be here of late - still joining in with the MNC and a couple of other weekly challenges but not too much in my portfolio. I shall try to rectify that in due course. I'm still taking pics though - lots at work (though of course I shouldn't admit that) - I take ...

Welll I'm still around but these last couple of weeks have seen me unable, so far, to settle down really. I think it's a combination of recovering from sleeping on a rather hard bed whilst on holiday (possibly combined with not good for walking trainers) which as resulted in my being stiff, sore an...

I was blitzing the laptop last night ready to fill it up with photos of my upcoming fortnight in Edinburgh when I found these two pics I'd made in PhotoFunia - quite fun I think - well it amused me. Yep - two weeks in Edinburgh coming up - I leave in an hour or so and fingers crossed it'll be a g...

A quickie....

Greetings - I thought it had been a while since I'd blogged - or uploaded for that matter - so I'm back again - briefly. Truthfully there's not a great deal to report - I'm still trying to pack in my still life pics in the evenings and they're probably actually just fine but I'm not finding them ...

I've not disappeared :)

Still here and watching the world go by but I'm not currently producing much that I consider good enough to add to my portfolio. I keep hoping that will change but time continues to run out - mostly because my weekends keep getting taken up with other 'stuff' and I have been unable to slow down, ch...

I'm still here :)

Hi - I thought I'd drop by as it's been a while! As is plain to see I'm still about but sadly either busy or just can't be arsed (to put it bluntly) :) I'm still out pretty much every Saturday leaving just Sundays free to do domestic stuff and play a bit. It does result in not a lot getting done....

At the top of the stairs......

The odd comment has been made by a peep or two about how they'd like to see what my house is like. I figured since it was relatively tidy at the top of the stairs I'd take a couple of snaps so you can go "oh good grief" at the amount of junk I have sitting around. Of course this is onl...

The Spoon

Tonight's Monday Night Challenge was 'your favourite household implement'. Not an easy one as alas I have no favourites but thought it would be a good excuse to do a pic I've been meaning to try for yonks. As usual it took rather longer than planned but for a cobbled job it didn't come out too...

For IrishKate

Not really much of a blog today - I spent most of the day mooching around town with IR camera, Fuji X10 and the Olympus and fisheye. It was pleasant just messing about and although none of the photos would win awards, one is going to be used as part of a promotional poster for a charity weekend a p...

8 ball.......

I was given these a couple or so weeks ago and finally decided to see what they photographed like, Somewhat easier said than done thanks to nice bright reflections but I happened to have an opaque sandwich bag near by (which had previously held a deceased butterfly) so held that right over the 8 ...

365 - take 2 - 365

Finally day 365 has arrived and definitely the last of my daily blogs. I don't plan to disappear altogether but certainly it won't be a daily thing. To finish off with another collision pic. Actually the only pics taken today and again I spent far too long messing about.

365 - take 2 - 364

My penultimate upload - well of the 365 batch. And I'm afraid it's a rather rubbish upload too I'm afraid. The evening went by a bit too quickly and although I did the splash bits about an hour or so ago, I didn't give myself enough time to do the job properly. Still, better than missing a ...

365 - take 2 - 363

So that's another long weekend done and dusted. Not a bad weekend - not as much achieved as planned but not too bad. I spent a few hours photographing rooms at a B&B and will be going back a few times after work to do detail stuff. Hopefully the guys will approve of what I've done - digit...

365 - take 2 - 362

Well that's Sunday over and it's not been a bad day. I spent a couple of hours mooching round town this morning and by the time I got home it clouded over so I did a bit of tidying up and a lot of messing about :) I took three cameras today - the IR Canon, the Fuji X10 and the Olympus with the...

365 - take 2 - 361

I had hopes of being able to produce something half decent for the weekly B&W challenge en route to Stroud and then Slimbridge again today. As it's the only day where I am anywhere that could produce anything remotely landscapy I hoped to produce a masterpiece with the IR camera from my positio...
