  • Tied Up

    I liked the markings on this mooring spike; it had obviously been well used and hit many times with a hefty hammer.

  • Canal Bank

    Took advantage of a lovely day last week to visit the local canal and take some snaps. I used the polariser for the first time in ages as the sun was very harsh and bright. It doesn't work as well on M43 as it does on the DSLR, but it does make a s...

  • Scan

    Had a very boring day yesterday so stuck a couple of bits under the scanner for a play. Then I pressed the wrong knob or something and the colour management went funny again. I have to turn colour management off to get the same colours on different...

  • An Interesting Read?

    Browsing through the photography books I noticed these two chaps doing the same. My eye, however, was initially captured by the red book in the foreground. Best seller anyone? :)

  • Window and Leaves

    Lovely brisk and bright day today so I took myself off to town. Went to Tate Mod to see the Rauchenberger exhibition - some interesting things. Gave me some ideas but whether I'll ever use them is another matter. I liked these bright leaves agains...

  • Frankie Saves His Pennies

    Frankie couldn't be bothered to go to the shops so had to make a card for dad at home. Oh well, it's the thought that counts. :) He could have done better but left it very late and had to do it in secret. :D Merry Christmas everyone. x

  • Cakes with Taste?

    There's a cake shop near where I live that displays the most horrendous cakes I've ever seen. Garish, huge, heavy and very naff. This is a comparatively "nice" selection of cakes. I might make it a project to document the various offerings the shop...

  • Experiencing Art

    There's some sort of sound and vision experience going on at Tate Modern at the moment. People just lay around and, well, experience things.

  • Getting Christmassy

    Thought I'd go for a walk along the South Bank in London today as I haven't been there for a while. I expected to see some lights and cheeriness, but looks as if I went on the wrong day.

  • The Cat Next Door

    This little lady seems to be my Frankie's latest girlfriend as his previous amour hasn't been seen for a few weeks. :( He seems to have good taste in women, even though he can't do anything about it. :)

  • Mine, All Mine

    I came across this huge collection of fungi in my local park. A couple of squirrels were very interested in it and I managed to capture one of them, seemingly laying its claim to the goodies. :) The other one, on the right, was a bit too fast for m...

  • Who's a Pretty Boy Then

    Out with my walking group this morning, we came across a hack in aid of charity. There were about 40 horses, all kitted out in christmas gear, and we had to change our route to avoid them. They did look cute though. I could only manage a couple of...

  • A Place to Hang Your Poo

    Or, a place to hang your poo bag when you can't be bothered to go to the special waste bin. :(
