    Rather annoyingly it's been a lovely sunny day today - blue sky & sunshine all flipping day. How much says that disappears by tomorrow? Hey ho.................. Anyway, this afternoon I spotted the light on the wall of the room next to me so I gra...

    Pretty much a non-photographic day today but I did at least stop long enough to do a quick pic of this chap who is currently living on my desk. A sheet of white paper against my monitor stand, a couple of glue dots to hold him in place, one mobile p...

    I've been keeping an eye on this tree since they started turning - all the other trees around have pretty much lost all their leaves and I knew that this tree changes late and produces the most wonderful colours. I must pick up some some leaves next...

    I was heading for the bus stop in town this morning when I spotted the reflections in a rather large puddle. I thought I'd not have time to stop to take a snap or two - the bus was about to arrive but seeing that had yet to turn up, I popped back. ...

    I was taking a few pics of this ancient Hydrangea this evening and thought I'd take a quick pic of it on the mobile and play with some of the filters I've recently added to my phone collection. However the evening is fast running out so I've kept it...

    I settled down this evening to do nothing (well not a lot) apart from watch Planet Earth followed by Humans and then realised that I'd not taken a single photo on the mobile today! Disaster to say the least. So I fished one of the Thompson Twins ou...

    I've been out all day again and happily it was lovely and sunny, if a tad nippy, this morning so I took a few snaps whilst waiting for the bus. Again I was playing with a combination of Snapseed and Camera+ and today my effort is of the Municipal Of...

    I took the day off and bumbled over to Stroud for a look round the 'antique' emporium - nothing bought - and a mooch through the wooded bit of the park and finally a once round the charity shops. Not a single item of junk bought at all! However it ...

    What a delightful morning - not too bad first thing and this is my view from the bus-shelter. Nearer to lunchtime it absolutely pelted down but happily by the time I was ready for a break blue sky and sunshine appeared - very nicely timed.

    I now have Camera+ on my mobile and a new learning curve begins - well I need to know where everything is without the aid of my reading specs as I don't always carry them around with me :) I need to spend an evening messing about - or a lunchbreak i...

    I pass by this window every morning at the moment - for some reason I really like it and keep taking a photo - and it never changes. I shall be good and delete today's pics - no point in keeping them!

    Despite spending a good chunk of time yesterday at the park, I opted to go there again this lunchtime. Well nothing needed getting in town and a potter around the lake is an excellent way to spend a bit of time. I've moved from grunge effects to th...

    Today, after doing some laundry and vacuuming, I decided to take myself off to the park. Usually I go during my lunchbreaks so that means half an hour shooting around the lake and back to work again. It was lovely to take as long as I wanted just b...

    Once upon this row of houses/flats was occupied by a car dealership and, behind, the cinema. Now it's rather a lot of rather expensive houses and wotnot and I have to admit they've done a good job of it. The view out of the windows though leaves a...
