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 produce something better tomorrow!

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 fell for them. I finally managed to get there this ...

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 actually got three double collisions althoug...

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 just thought that I wish I'd not swept the cobwebs...

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 able to spot me...........

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 too many food & drink stalls and not enough gar...

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 bound book today cost me the price of a coffee - D...

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 creation is situated and, as hoped, at 8am there were no...

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 on the walls! Anyway I didn't go round today - m...

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 kind of day to be spent with the camera. Here's ...

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'll sort out a clamp for the flash gun so that one c...

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 bounce the flash off. This is a sheet of slightl...
