I couldn't resist......

As the sun was out today I was damned if I was going to stay home and do the tidying up/blitzing I keep promising that I'm going to do. Instead I went over to Tewkesbury again to bumble around the Abbey, along the riverbank, in and out of the charity shops and a slow study of the contents of the an...

Fingers Crossed......

I've just put a bid on a knackered ventriloquist dummy. It just needs the clothes patching and it doesn't work but it's only for pics....... :)

Frustrating Times

There's little more annoying than standing at the bus-stop at 7.30am with frost covered leaves, misty air and sun shining through the trees. As I sat on the bus into work I could only gaze out of the window at the sun glinting off the edges of the pile of rubble that used to be the local school, th...

Good Timing

I disappeared off into town this morning - came home for lunch and since the weather was so nice went off into town again. This time with the intention of stopping by the Millennium Bridge - which I call the Waitrose Bridge - to take a few pics. Perfect timing - 15 minutes later the blue sky a...

I've just been up to the park by my office on my lunchbreak and took a walk around the lakes. As I was wandering up alongside one of the lakes a chap zoomed by on his pushbike and under his arm was a rather large swan :) Sadly I had been playing with the filters on the X10 and only had a chanc...

Having Fun.....

Since I did the firmware upgrade on the Fuji X10 I'm having difficulty stopping playing with the new filter effects - mainly the Dynamic Tone one. It's producing pics that I've never really tried to do before and ok, they might not be good, but they're good fun! Here's one in standard EXR mode and...

Disco Dippy

Having just read the latest blog entry by Slowsong, I thought I'd follow it up with a couple of quick pics I took yesterday at the Natural History Museum of the poor creature who has been reduced from a dignified and imposing individual to what I now refer to as Disco Dippy. Yep - a shame and it ha...

Film Scanner

I picked up a Summit Film Scanner from a charity shop today - brand new, unopened packaging - all of 4.95. A bargain you say until I realise that I have Win 7 on this laptop so the driver doesn't work. Still, the pc is XP so I'm going to get a Belkin Switch (which I've been meaning to do for ag...

Life After 365

Well my 365 (and a bit) might be over but I'll still be doing the odd blog. Last night I said I was going to take the skeletons off the chairs in case they fell over during the night but I neglected to. Happily there were no bumps in the night but when I got home this evening this is what I fo...

Ok - actually I'm sure I got my numbering wrong with this 365 blog and in fact the real 365 was a few days ago. However having decided on what pic I was going to do I decided to go ahead anyway and set this little lot up. I fear a lot of tidying up will be required before I can do any more pics ...

Just looking at my blog entries and notice that it's my 365 entry today - when I take a picture - but I started the blog on 14th October 2011 so somewhere along the line my numbers have gone kaput I know my numbering has wandered on occasions and various kind peeps have pointed it out but somewhe...

No dressing up tonight - no bright ideas and a distinct lack of energy so Cedric decided to treat the chaps to a bit of culture this evening. Not great - might redo it another day - definitely not tonight. I believe Cedric has been on the pop - I think it's him that has fallen off the table ...

Actually you can't see the tip that lies behind the camera but I had to cut short my photo session this evening to take a phone call and an hour later I wasn't about to start again. At least that end of the room is tidy enough to play again another evening......


I did have a pic in mind tonight - it didn't really work so I chucked on a mask, stuck a net skirt around my head and some long gloves instead. The mask was wonky - it didn't really work - hey ho........ :)
