Photo365 - 336 - Paper cuts

A sheet of A 4 paper cut into five strips and placed on top of another and lit from above left. It's a bit of an optical illusion. No paper was folded. Each of the five strips were taped at one end and placed on their edge so they were about 1.5in high. Some didn't touch the base all the way along s...

Photo365 - 335 - smokin!

I've been meaning to have a go with incense smoke this year but never got around to it. Yesterday I bought some sticks...tonight i had a play. This is using very basic equipment to show you don't need to spend a fortune. Incense stick held up on a chair using tape. Budget auto flash set at f...

I walk passed a large fenced off area most days and have been meaning to photograph this sign recently. The fence went up when a huge Victorian property disappeared a few years ago. The large bricked building was demolished to make way for luxury homes. They never materialised and now all the fanc...

Photo365 - 333 - Eggs away

I have one egg left in the carton. It got left and is well past the sell by date. I was about to throw it when I saw this photo. It reminds me of a man in one of those sporty car seats, so the title kind of has two meanings. Another iPhone shot. Today I also used a resampling to increase...

I was trying to get that view you see when you pass a car scrap yard where they stack the broken cars upright.

Photo365 - 331 - Jelly bears

Three jelly bear sweets placed on my iPad on an ePHOTOzine page with white space, and photographed with the iPhone and new Hipstamatic lens/film combination.


I haven't been bowling for ages, and it showed. Possibly my lowest score ever at just 102! I thought this bowling ball look a bit like a face, so placed it on the rack at an angle to show of its best side. Hipstamatic (trying out new lens and film I've downloads) on iPhone


I woke up this morning to see sunlight finding its way though a window, and then out through a door onto another door. One of the good things about winter is that the sun is low and the bright sunlight always slips through the cracks. A simple shot on the iPhone / Hipstamatic showing where it lande...

Photo365 - 328 - the diver

I have a 2x tele lens to review and this was the first photo I took with it to illustrate the difference between this lens and the perspective of the same shot using just the iPhone. It's a small glass diver ornament with a US navy diver helmet as its background.

Those who've been following my blog will be aware that I've been documenting the building of Worksop's new cinema. I went a few weeks ago and little change had taken place since phase 6 so I didn't post my photo. Then I had a week away. So this morning before work, now the nights are drawing in, I v...

A low angle shot of some ground garden solar lights taken with the iphone and fisheye lens attached.


I got an iPhone Microscope in for review, so here's a shot with it...an abstract pattern at x60...can you tell what it is?

Photo365 - 324 - jelly bean

I spotted this weeks macro challenge tonight, but was a few minutes too late in getting my entry shot so I'll use it for my Photo365...It's a single jelly bean shot with the Olympus EP2 and toy lens with +10 macro adaptor on the front. The focus point is never centre and the blur, aberrations, vigne...

Photo365 - 322 - Wind Surfer

I'm playing catch up after a week's holiday in Gran Canaria - this was taken on 18 November 2011 A wind surfer at Pozo Izquierdo in Gran Canaria, taken using the Olympus Pen EP2 and 40-150mm lens set at 150mm. The water was quite tame so there wasn't much major action. It seems they can jump se...
