365 - take 2 - 360

Blimey - not long until my 365 is done and dusted! I don't think I'll start another straight away but will try to keep popping up here with reasonable frequency. Then again maybe I should stop for a while and see if anyone can overtake me on the blog league table! I didn't take any pics during ...

Again I've little to show for my day - apart from shuffling yellow files back and forth across my desk. Ah well - the money comes in handy! I did take a handful of snaps with the IR camera at lunchtime - I may upload one of those to my portfolio shortly - and earlier this evening I took a few pi...

I was just about to leave for work this morning and putting a bit of rubbish in the kitchen bin when I spotted this spider. I assumed he/she had a fly or something wrapped up but interested to see it was a much larger spider. It's not a great pic but then I did have the X10 poked between the wal...

Oops - almost bed-time and I've not done my blog yet. Not that I've anything remotely interesting to write about I'm afraid. Most weekdays are the same, as are the evenings! I do have a load of blitzing to do but I'm having trouble getting motivated. It's not the sort of job I want to do in th...

I had to visit someone on my way home from work this evening so took the opportunity to pop round to the Millennium Bridge (more commonly known as the waitrose bridge around here) and took a few pics with the IR camera. There were rather a lot of people running and cycling walking - well it was a...

I had a very lazy day today - well the sun was out, the sky blue and as I'm usually stuck in the office on sunny days I figured my time would be well spent sitting in the garden with a book. Ok I did cut the grass, rip up some of the 'weeds' (pretty but taking over) and topped up the pond - and...

Slimbridge again today and very few photos taken apart from some of the fountain in town whilst waiting for the bus. However lots of goodies purchased at the car boot I visited en route - oops :)

So that's another week done, another weekend will shoot by far too quickly and then the new week will start again. It's a thrilling roundabout eh? Ah well - I at least grabbed a handful of daisies when I got in this evening and took a few pics - they're due to get their heads chopped off this we...

So another day done and this time only a couple of IR pics taken on the way to work this morning - neither of note. I ended up nipping into the garden this evening in search of something floral - this'll do I said to myself........ and not until I looked at the resulting picture spotted the litt...

I was back at the park this lunchtime and went across the road to the boating lake bit. I did take a load of IR pics but was also playing with the f1.8 on the A350. Technically this pic is pretty rubbish - after all I don't think any of it is in focus - but I quite like it nevertheless :)

I went up to the park at lunchtime hoping that the sun that has been nicely out much of the morning would make an appearance. Sadly it went off behind the clouds and stayed there, rained, and then came back out just after I got back into the office. I still took a few pics with the little IR c...

So the splashart kit was still out from Sunday's playings so I thought I'd bung a gravel tray underneath and have a quick go at some reflections. What a shame it was that I'd neglected to empty and rinse the reservoir last night - it took a while to unclog the nozzle! I've left it upside down th...

Why oh why did I get the SplashArt kit out again this afternoon? That was a very silly thing to do :) Still, I tried it with the new Tamron - DOF is possibly a wee too slim for splashy drops .........

I had my usual trip to Slimbridge today and as the car boot in nearby Dursley packed up early we went over to Wotton Under Edge instead. There we wandered round to The Ancient Ram Inn where the owner kindly let us have a potter around inside. Apparently it's full of spooks but I'm afraid I didn'...

Aphids again this evening - mostly because the new lens arrived today - the Tamron 90mm macro and of course I had to give it a quick go. It might have been a good idea to focus on the centre aphid but then I was taking a wider shot and cropped it. I'm hoping for some decent weather on Sunday...
