    Oops - I totally forgot to do my blog yesterday (Monday) - no excuse - just a distinct lack of brain power last night :) I'm not helped by only taking a couple of pics yesterday - one was the effort I uploaded to my portfolio - and the other was f...

    Despite having stuff like vacuuming and wotnot to do today, there was no way I was going to stay indoors when the sun was out, the sky was blue and it was warm enough to go bare armed :) I'm not about to waste weather like that! I went off to Glo...

    I did my usual trip to Slimbridge today, via Stroud. I would have come back with a few goodies from a couple of the charity shops in Stroud had the person in front of me in one not had a great big pile of stuff to buy and assistants that were moving...

    A quickie tonight - again. My nephew and his dog are visiting so I thought I'd try a few quick pics of Jet. Next time I'll sort out a proper background instead of cobbling it together :)

    Another evening when just one photo taken - stuff to do as per usual - so I just picked up what was handy - the room is turning into a tip again :) One day I'll get back on track again!

    This evening didn't really go according to plan. Again I ran out of time - same old story. I decided however to get my B&W Challenge pic done - I've had an image in mind since last week and thought it was time I had a go. It didn't come out as p...

    I bumbled off to the NEC today for the photography show and I'm afraid I lasted about 2 hours before I'd had enough of the crowds. I think I managed to look around everything though and picked up an old damaged National folding flash gun which I'd w...

    Another Sunday has gone and I didn't go near the camera until gone 5pm. Instead I've been tidying up, blitzing this and that, changing pictures over on the walls and stuff. I think I've made progress - maybe...... I thought I'd better get to the...

    A quick late entry tonight - I'm watching the Life of Pi at the moment but did take a few quick pics of two new additions to freaky family- nice aren't they? :)

    More watery entertainment this evening when I thought I'd try a few splashy water pics. For a first go they didn't come out too badly - and amazingly I didn't make much mess!

    Yet another quickie this evening - as per usual the time goes by too quickly though admittedly not helped by my trying to find out if I can put a new ringtone on my very basic mobile. As it stands the answer is no. Maybe if I get a SIM reader it mi...

    I had to go to the dentist this morning (clean bill of health I'm pleased to say) - and decided to take the little Olympus plus fisheye with me as I had to walk through town back to the office. I was a tad puzzled when changing aperture was having...

    I'm still messing about with the flowers but not in a very spectacular way - everything is too much of a rush, too many distractions and I've yet to chill and slow down a bit. Ok, I have slowed down now - watching The Mentalist and frantically typin...

    The Oriental lilies are opening up at last - hopefully in day or two they'll be nicely wide open but I took a few pics earlier this evening anyway. I'd not be surprised if I bore you rigid with flower pics for a while :) Nothing remotely interest...
