  • Photo365 - 6 - Asparagus

    Today I have photographed asparagus. I've never been keen on it as a food, but I was in the supermarket last night looking at clinically perfect peppers and saw bunches of asparagus and thought - kill two new year resolutions with one stone - more ph...

  • Photo365 - 5 - Glass and a blind

    Today I took a trip down memory lane and photographed objects against a Venetian blind. The last time I did this seriously was back in the 80s in a terraced house I lived in. I shot them on Hassleblad and they were some of may favourite shots. So...

  • Photo365 - 4 - Cross Polarisation

    Today's project is another version of cross polarisation I've been doing a bit of lately. In this example I turned my LCD computer screen on its back facing upwards. This became the base for a collection of cheap disposable shot glasses (1 for 40 fr...

  • Junk - may be worth more than you think

    We all no doubt have stuff we no longer want...even if we don't realise it. I was having a sort out in the garage the other day. I'm not very good at it. I usually just rearrange things! I believe most men are the same. I came across my box of to...

  • Another one ticked off

    I decided early in the new year to go to places I haven't been to in the UK. Yesterday was Spurn Head or Spurn Point as it's also know. A two hour drive and well worth it. It was quite an experience on the three mile approach driving on a bumpy brick...
