    Trying to do light trails on the mobile isn't really something to be tackled whilst walking home in a hurry. One day I'll be able to slow down but the road along which I was travelling isn't one where you want to linger too long.................

    I added the Slow Shutter app to my phone last night though have yet to play with it properly. I did however have a brief play whilst sat on the bus this morning waiting for it to leave the stop - you should be able to see the neon jogger going by......

    Another bus-stop photo tonight - not very exciting I'm afraid :) However I have downloaded another photo app - it can apparently enable me to do long exposures, vary the ISO - that kind of thing - another toy to play with :)

    A rubbish mobile effort today. Busy at work catching up from being off with the Lurgy - a miserable soggy lunchtime so I didn't stay out long and I've been watching Sherlock this evening. Fortunately I did take a snap whilst waiting at the bus-stop...

    A day off today to go over to Winchcombe to visit mum before she goes back up to Scotland at the weekend. I managed a couple of charity shops on the way to the house and a quick visit to an antiques 'emporium' but bought nothing. Mostly the day was...

    I've been playing with my crystal ball for the last couple of days but it still needs a bit of work. For one, the perforated sheet is just A4 size so I think I could do with a smaller crystal ball as it's a bit tricky getting it placed right. Plus ...

    I've no idea how many times I've taken a photo of this window - I just can't resist - I like it :) I did leave the house briefly today - just popped into town and back for now specific reason. Sadly back to work tomorrow - I'm not completely recove...

    I went out today with mum and sis - to a large garden centre for a potter. Nothing bought but nice just to bumble around looking at this and that. The place with dotted with wagons, carts, vehicles so that supplied me with subject matter for today'...

    I spent a bit of time tidying up the 'studio' today - it's improving though still a bit messy. The best bit is finding 'stuff' I'd forgotten I had - which might suggest that I have too much 'stuff' if that's possible........................ Anyway ...

    The Lurgy is lifting - at long last - so I went out for some fresh air today. Lovely and sunny if a little nippy. I'm not entirely sure my lungs were grateful for the change of temperature but hey too late to worry about that!

    Still got the lurgie - I didn't go to work today - actually I spent most of the day asleep - either in bed or in my chair - hey ho............ So my mobile offering is this little van which, one day, will be photographed in a suitable location - one...

    Blimey - I actually left the house today - despite still having the lurgy I do intend to go to work tomorrow evening if I don't last the day. I figured it sensible to at least break myself in gently and leave the house for a bit. Part of my wanderi...

    A total cheat today - again I've not left the house and actually done very little at all apart from another brief play with the oil & water. However I forgot to get the mobile out for the blog photo so here's a snap of my laptop screen instead. Sor...
