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.

    As is usually normal for a Saturday I took myself off to Tetbury which involves three buses there and three back. As usual I snapped away out of the window as I went along - some dismal failures, some not bad, none excellent. It does help the journ...

    The sun was out, the sky was blue so off to the park I went this lunchtime. What a shame I only have an hour for lunch and it takes a good 10 minutes or so to get down to the lake .................. then again I bet a lot of people wish they were w...

    A view from my office window today - unfortunately my desk faces the opposite direction so I have to keep getting up to see what the sky is doing. Fortunately the light reflects off a building that I can see from my chair so I have a fair idea if it...

    I have yet to master holding the phone still whilst doing longer exposures :) I'm glad I got that app though - it's nice to have a bit more control over 'stuff'.................

    It's been non stop rain and dull here today - not exactly inspiring I'm afraid. Plus when I did exit the office I was charging about at a rate of knots - well it's the only way to dodge the big rain drops :) I did at least take a snap of the new sh...

    Trying to do light trails on the mobile isn't really something to be tackled whilst walking home in a hurry. One day I'll be able to slow down but the road along which I was travelling isn't one where you want to linger too long.................

    I added the Slow Shutter app to my phone last night though have yet to play with it properly. I did however have a brief play whilst sat on the bus this morning waiting for it to leave the stop - you should be able to see the neon jogger going by......

    Another bus-stop photo tonight - not very exciting I'm afraid :) However I have downloaded another photo app - it can apparently enable me to do long exposures, vary the ISO - that kind of thing - another toy to play with :)

    A rubbish mobile effort today. Busy at work catching up from being off with the Lurgy - a miserable soggy lunchtime so I didn't stay out long and I've been watching Sherlock this evening. Fortunately I did take a snap whilst waiting at the bus-stop...

    A day off today to go over to Winchcombe to visit mum before she goes back up to Scotland at the weekend. I managed a couple of charity shops on the way to the house and a quick visit to an antiques 'emporium' but bought nothing. Mostly the day was...

    I've been playing with my crystal ball for the last couple of days but it still needs a bit of work. For one, the perforated sheet is just A4 size so I think I could do with a smaller crystal ball as it's a bit tricky getting it placed right. Plus ...

    I went out today with mum and sis - to a large garden centre for a potter. Nothing bought but nice just to bumble around looking at this and that. The place with dotted with wagons, carts, vehicles so that supplied me with subject matter for today'...
