  • 365 - take 2 - 339

    I was messing about with the still life again this evening - as usual I'm trying to fit a stack of things in before bed-time so not a great deal of time was spent on it. This composition didn't exactly work - hey ho :)

    As usual I was tackling the B&W challenge photo late tonight and was aiming for plant life. Nice and easy - leg it into the garden and pick lots of bits of leaves and stuff :) It was quite enjoyable actually - I set the camera to B&W and played - a...

    A quick still life tonight - tonight. Not good enough to put in my portfolio but good enough for here - and besides it's all I've done with the camera today.

    I was half full of good intentions to put together a still life this evening but the day had dragged on and I just couldn't muster the enthusiasm. Happily at this time of year I can usually find something in the garden to play with so here's the ...

    I took myself off for the day despite the weather being less than glorious but at least it wasn't raining enough to use a brolly. Off I went to the antiques fair in Gloucester but found nothing of interest so the only thing I ended up buying was an ...

    I've been out all day but had to have a quick go on the SplashArt kit as I wanted to see how the Olympus E-PM2 handled the water drops. I could have waited until Sunday but I wanted to know now :) Anyway it does very nicely - ok, I only used one ...

    It's been another day of minimal photography - very important things like slapping some dye on my hair took priority this evening :) I did at least nip out into the rain and picked some Clematis flowers - they don't seem to last long once cut but ...

    It's a quick effort tonight - I had plans to do more than one dandelion head but managed to demolish two and this one didn't fare much better :0 Still, better than nothing :)

    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...

    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 fe...

    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'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 ...

    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 abl...

    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 t...

    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 ...
