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 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...

    I've been away this weekend and on Saturday took about half a dozen pics - some of a birthday cake and two of sis showing me the gel polish doodah she'd bought. So here's her digit in said doodah.........

    Since I'd opened the cream yesterday I figured I should start using it. Dropping a cream/water mix into a cup of cold coffee is rather hit and miss - and at times messy...........

    I had a very quick go at dropping some cream into a glass of water this evening. Flipping messy game and I need to find a way to secure my remote so it doesn't slip around whilst I stand on it! I'm afraid both hands are needed at the moment but I'l...

    Yep - I got the kit out again this evening :) Ok I never really put it away but I did clear up the debris the other night and made it all nice and tidy. Oddly enough it's not so tidy now. Anyway I played for a while with different backgrounds to...

    Damn - I've been running round like a flipping idiot so I could settle down and relax to The Mentalist only to find they've pushed it back to 10pm so I'm making do with Storage Hunters instead. Ho hum - I'll search for a few pics I might enter into ...

    No splashes today - I've decided to take the evening off from doing them and did a quick still life instead - however I don't consider it up to scratch so won't be showing it off :) I at least joined with the Monday Night Challenge - good job too ...

    I spent far too long this afternoon messing about with the splashart machine and I really did't come up with much to be proud of. It was all useful experimenting with lighting and gels and wotnot but I suspect my gum/water ratio needs working on as ...

    As is pretty normal for a Saturday I've been out all day and by the time I got home was disinclined to put too much effort into anything. As the splashart kit is set up in the living room I can at least it takes minutes to set up and I can do a ...

    I thought I'd get the perspex sheet out to try some crowns on and it makes a flipping mess :) It was just a try-out and I really couldn't be bothered to keep wiping the sheet down so here's a crown within a crown and lots of messy drops everywhere. ...

    I thought I'd see what kind of crowns I could produce this evening and happily they're pretty straight forward. Ok I need a nice layer of water in the tray to give me better reflections and the lens now needs a good cleaning but it was a useful expe...
