  • 365 - take 2 - 310

    Intensive photo sorting has been done this evening but I did stop long enough earlier to pic some flowers from the garden for a play. Since the camera and flashguns were downstairs I opted to be lazy and whilst experimenting with the position of the...

    I spent a very pleasant day at the Steam Museum in Swindon today. It was a bit of a trawl getting there as I chose to go by bus having already purchased a weekly pass that would cover the trip. Still, it's a pleasant route from Cheltenham to Swindo...

    A busy evening here trying to get a batch of pics ready but I've not a hope of getting them finished tonight. I did at least take a few pics earlier knowing that I'd need something with today's date on it so here's another collision pic. I'm of...

    Not a lot to report today - much of the morning was spent clearing the decks and setting up for some baby, & her parents, pics this afternoon. Half the room got dumped into my bedroom and then of course it all had to be removed again. Other tha...

    I pottered off to Cirencester today for a bit of a mooch and junk hunt. No junk found and very few photos were taken but it was nice to just potter with no agenda other than making sure I didn't miss the bus home. The Cirencester Hare Festival st...

    I thought I'd make a mess with oil and water tonight - only problem is I will have to tidy up and wash everything up no - ok, tomorrow. The living room looks as though a bomb has gone off :) However if the sun comes out on Saturday then I'm off to ...

    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.............
