  • 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. :(

  • Mannequin Challenge

    Yesterday at work we did a Mannequin Challenge. Two of the dogs featured are Clover and Luna. Clover was last year's Good Morning Guide Dog puppy and is now in training, and Luna, the labradoodle puppy, is this year's. :) Filmed at the Redbridge...

  • New Lens Tryout

    I bought a Panasonic 12-60mm lens last week and have been itching to try it. The reviews were not that good, mostly saying it was a bit soft and the edges weren't all that. However, I found it really nice to use and it's so light it goes with the G5...

  • Trapped

    Well, I couldn't stay in the Lily House at Kew Gardens because of the dense steam which fogged up my specs and my camera, so I took some pics of the foliage pressed up against the wet glass from the outside. There were lots of windows but they all lo...

  • Fancy Dress

    I don't usually go to Covent Garden on a Monday but had to visit the camera shop to pick something up. They have different sorts of stall out on a Monday and this retro uniform and weird army stuff stall was most interesting. My first try out wit...

  • Backs and Fronts

    Had fun watching the ice skating today. Obviously, there were lots of selfies, etc. going on and these three girls were having a great time. :)

  • One in a Million

    We have a massive sycamore tree at the back of our garden. It's not ours, but I hope they never chop it down. However, it does shed trillions of seeds at this time of year and my garden gets swamped with them. Luckily they don't sprout, but any si...

  • Tiny Threads

    I liked these little fragmented cobwebs clinging onto a corner of the shed. Took down the clarity to make them look more fairylike.

  • Angry Birds

    This morning was perfect for tidying up the garden. Overcast but a lovely cool temperature and no wind. After my work I got the macro out and snapped a few things. I never realised the robins on the pottery shoe looked so cross. :D And the gerani...

  • The Pig Tree

    Some of the trees at Kew have strange markings on them. This one was very pig-like, so thought it was worth a snap. Being completely useless at anything botanical I didn't make a note of what the tree was, but it was a big one with a pig on it, if ...

  • Bog Blog

    Had a bit of a rubbish day today but dropped into the Photographers' Gallery just to see what they had on display anyway. Not impressed, as usual. But during my obligatory comfort stop I took the only photograph I could be bothered with. There's a...

  • Shrivelled

    Most of the berries have now dried up and shrivelled. Some are clinging on for dear life but most are past redemption. Never mind, there's still next year. :)

  • A Room without a View

    When I looked out of my landing window a couple of years ago all I could see were trees and birds. This is what I see now. New people move into the area, demolish the trees and build brick sheds at the bottom of their gardens instead. Joni Mitchell...

  • Autumn Glow

    Just a snap of some grasses lit by a pale, afternoon light. I was trying out my old G5 and kit lens which I bought a couple of years ago and found that I really liked the combo again. Focussed on the light grasses in the foreground so the rest is b...
