Taken at Kew Gardens. This guy was very real and had a good stare on him.
Thanks for all the comments recently. I’ve been so busy and not had much time to get out with the camera or check my comments page. So I’ve resorted to using the mini Sony DSC-T9 again and I had to … Continue reading
Thanks for all the comments on my previous shot. I think Andy summed up my feelings about it. Good processing, but not quite the right subject. Anyway, here’s another shot using the Sony DSC-T9’s. For a small compact it gives … Continue reading
I couldn’t leave yesterday’s slightly disgusting shot as the only macro I post. So here’s another from the the same outing to the zoo.
As with yesterday’s shot, I’m still focusing on the details. I think I need to get out and get some people shots again.
Guess what it’s doing in London? Again.
Unfortunately this is another shot from the archives. I’ve still not managed to get out with the camera.
I don’t usually post at the weekend, but this is just *nice*. The park was *nice*, my coffee and panettone was *nice*, my son was an angel and the sun is out. It feels like spring is sprung at last. … Continue reading
I managed to get out today in the brief sunny spots between the rain and this was taken just before I got caught in a hailstorm. I had saved my Pret sandwich bag, mainly because I didn’t pass a bin. … Continue reading
Wilted: To feel or exhibit the effects of fatigue or exhaustion; weaken markedly. Too many late nights, not enough new material. I’m going to take the weekend to recover. Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s post I was pleasantly … Continue reading
I’ve been experimenting with capturing water droplets and this is by no means as good as I wanted it. It probably took a hundred shots for me to get to this point. I tried various surfaces and amounts of water … Continue reading
I’m running low on shots at the moment and I’m feeling decidedly ‘off colour’ when I pick up the camera. So this is something I took a while back which I decided to process it a little differently to my … Continue reading
Thank you all for your comments on my previous Motion shots. At the moment it’s difficult for me to find the time to comment on other photoblogs (I always at least try to visit the sites of my commenters), so … Continue reading
Whatever you do this time of year, enjoy it. I’m looking forward to 2006, I hope you are too. (Posts might be a bit sporadic next week. Obviously.)
I’m going to see what the reaction to this shot is before I describe anything about it. Update: Owen was right, this was produced using a torch, with a cardboard tube taped over it to focus the light a little … Continue reading
Did I scare you? Happy Halloween.
Something for the weekend. I never posted on Friday, so here’s one for the weekend. Nothing special, just a snap of tonight’s dinner ingredients. I thought it looked quite nice all laid out. Picked up from London’s Borough Market this … Continue reading
Excuse the title, but yesterday I spent a lovely few hours walking around Beckenham Place Park and took about fifty shots, yet I came away with very little to talk of. Shit! …and here are the mushrooms.
Last week I decided to put the camera down for a while and I was hoping to get about at the weekend. That didn’t happen. So now I have nothing to post and I’m feeling a bit like I’ve hit … Continue reading
I have been out and about with the camera over the last few days, but have really been struggling with choosing something to post. I know this is because I’ve just come back from Italy and London just seems to … Continue reading
Can you take a picture of something disgusting and make it look beautiful? I’ve got nothing else to post so I’ll try. Oh, and I stumbled across this in my referrers list. Ross is a hard man to please, he … Continue reading
A simple shot from a simple day. The last day at the beach. We visited Viareggio yesterday and spent the day lounging and playing with the kids on the beach. I was sat there in the sun with a beer … Continue reading
It does seem a shame to replace my previous post with a shot of an insect, but we didn’t leave the villa yesterday so my opportunities were kind of restricted. The whole day was spent in the garden eating, drinking, … Continue reading
