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 thought I'd try milk with the drip machine tonight and bought a pint of regular instead of my semi-skimmed. Quite frankly my efforts were rubbish and I think a day or two away from the machine won't hurt and next time I play I'll try to do it when...

    Well I seem to be on the wonk tonight and whatever I did didn't make the blindest bit of difference. A tad frustrating to say the least but I quit - until tomorrow :)

    My plans to go back to doing a bit of still life fell by the wayside this evening as my new Yongnuo flashguns arrived today and of course I had to try them out. Ok, one of them out as I'm short of a stand but will sort something out tomorrow. I'v...

    After a comment this morning by a work colleague I decided that I had to try to do a drop pic inside a lightbulb. Happily I just happened to have a bulb all ready emptied out and ready to use :) The problem of course with an enclosed space li...

    Oops - I was just about to switch off and head up to bed when I realised I'd not done my blog today! Actually there's nothing to report - not a great deal has been spent with the camera as I decided to get all domestic - foolish I know but somet...

    I've been out all day again so it was a quick case of doing a few drops earlier this evening as I'd not picked up a camera all day. Any thoughts of taking a few pics from the bus window were thwarted do to the windows being absolutely filthy - there...

    I'm still enjoying the SplashArt kit - no surprise there. Today I decided that I wanted to get a collision inside a bubble. I didn't do too badly - not great but acceptable for a first attempt - more will follow. However I thought I'd use this...

    Amazingly I didn't spend all evening playing with the splashes though admittedly a good chunk of time was spent messing about again. The main 'problem' is that I can leave it all set up 24 hours a day so it's there tempting me when I should be doing...

    Will someone please tell me how to stop playing with this darned machine - it's flipping wonderful :) I really could do with a 2nd working flashgun though - I can see me having to spend some money again.............

    Oddly enough I decided to play with the SplashArt kit again this evening. Sadly for some reason my slave flash has decided that it doesn't want to work so I was stuck with just the one. It was something of a nuisance but I struggled on - and will d...

    Yep - too much time has been spent again playing with the SplashArt kit - it's addictive stuff you know :) Somewhere in this house is a box of gels for the flashguns but I can't find them so a bit of gaffer tape did the job with some hastily cut bit...

    As the sun was out and the sky was blue I took myself off out for the day today. First Tewkesbury and then Gloucester. I bought a couple of items to add to my ever-growing prop collection and took a few snaps down at Gloucester Docks. I've done bo...

    Ha - I found a flashgun - not the one I was looking for but it'll do. Ok, not a great pic but a huge improvement :)

    I was out all day again as usual but once I got home I felt it essential that I at least plug in my new SplashArt kit and try it out. My next challenge will be to a) find my flipping flashgun and b) actually get the collisions in focus......... ...

    This evening didn't go quite according to play but at least I did spent a brief amount of time earlier with the camera. I anticipate being out all day on Saturday but, depending on the weather (ie. if it's sunny then I'm going out, I plan to try...
