There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

    I took myself off for the day despite the weather being less than glorious but at least it wasn't raining enough to use a brolly. Off I went to the antiques fair in Gloucester but found nothing of interest so the only thing I ended up buying was an ...

    I've been out all day but had to have a quick go on the SplashArt kit as I wanted to see how the Olympus E-PM2 handled the water drops. I could have waited until Sunday but I wanted to know now :) Anyway it does very nicely - ok, I only used one ...

    It's been another day of minimal photography - very important things like slapping some dye on my hair took priority this evening :) I did at least nip out into the rain and picked some Clematis flowers - they don't seem to last long once cut but ...

    It's a quick effort tonight - I had plans to do more than one dandelion head but managed to demolish two and this one didn't fare much better :0 Still, better than nothing :)

    Another duff one tonight I'm afraid - it's been a trying day and I really wasn't in the mood to put much effort in this evening. Sadly even the drops were a disaster - not a decent one amongst them so here's a bundle of drops! Fingers crossed I can...

    A bit of a crappy picture tonight but quite frankly I'm feeling disinclined to make much of an effort this evening - I'll do better tomorrow. Anyway I saw these vases/jugs, whatever, in the charity shop a week or two ago and I'm afraid I rather fe...

    I allowed myself some time with the Splashart kit this afternoon - just an hour as it's far too easy to get carried away and suddenly find hours have gone by and hundreds of photos taken. Besides I had a still life I wanted to get done as well.........

    I've spent much of today blitzing the garage having got rid of some of the larger items in there ie. dead tv and wotnot. Now I've three bags of junk piled up ready to go one day but at least I can see the floor in there and am making headway. I've ...

    Another day out today - Gloucester, Dursley and then Slimbridge (the village not the wetland place). I took about half a dozen pics and none of them are masterpieces :) This was taken, as usual, from the bus. If you look closely you might be abl...

    I took very few photos today - a few whilst on the bus going over to Gloucester and a handful at the Quays which is where I went to see what the 'Garden Party' event was like. Maybe it picked up in the afternoon but I wasn't overly impressed. Far t...

    I wandered round to see Ronnie this lunchtime - he has a shop round the corner which he fills with stuff from the house clearances he does. It's rare for me to leave the place empty handed. Happily his prices are very sensible - a little leather ...

    As I was up a bit earlier than usual today I caught an earlier bus into town and spent about half an hour pottering in the sunshine camera in hand. I figured it would be a good idea to wander round to the phone box where the supposed Banksy creati...

    Usually I bus into town in the morning and then catch another out to the office. It was however far too nice to sit on a bus so I walked from town and played with the camera en route. Then I totally demolished one of the photos I'd taken :)

    I was going to wander round the corner this lunchtime and take a look at the new bit of graffiti that has appeared - supposedly a Banksy but there is doubt. I couldn't care less who it's by - just nice to have something new and half decent painted o...

    Sunday now and most of the day was spent with the family again and some of that time was spent bumbling around the garden, camera in hand, trying to some up with the odd photo. Admittedly minimal effort was put into my endeavours - it wasn't the kin...
