The Sunday Fraggle Report 25/1

Another week of cold temperatures but at last I got to see some snow! Had to go to North Yorkshire to visit a client and the hills were covered, managed to get a shot with a bit of sunshine lighting the landscape, that didn’t last long.

But the rest of my work days didn’t have much in the way of snow or views.

On Thursday Phil & I decided to go to Piero’s for our dinner and we had tomato & basil soup and then pasta, really yummy but filled us up too much!

We stayed home mostly this weekend, it was sunny for a couple of hours but cold, so stayed in and played with my camera.  Really upset that my new SX70 has stopped working, it got jammed, and won’t eject the photo’s and so will have to send it back for repair 😦 bit fed up as I’ve not even had it 2 months yet and I really like it. My Sunday challenge group this week had us find 3 same/identical items and shoot them so only one item is in focus, so I shot 3 buddha statues, 3 poker dice and 3 of my scale models that I used to paint before I got into photography. We also had to process the shots using past challenge techniques.

I saw a tiny little bird hopping around on our back lawn yesterday, I didn’t get a brilliant shot of it, but enough to find out it was a wren, which is new to my garden.

This afternoon mad~Cal and Shelley came for a visit and that was fun he cracks us up. And that’s another week gone by, not much ado,

  1. Sorry for your loss (SX-70 I mean), I find quite beautiful your photographs with that machine. My Canon Ef has a problem it seems with the shutter, although the camera would say the problem is me, lol so I transferred to the corner of nice paperweights and bought another model for 20 bucks in ebay (hoping this works)
    I love your mystery of three objects, seems like a triple exposure at different times, and I’m glad you found a place in shadows with sunlight as you adore. Thanks for the needed freshness in our so hot summer.

    1. Hopefully the SX70 will be revived, I have 1year warranty on it so they should fix it. I have a few similar paperweights of the Nikon/Fuji/Minolta persuasion lol! Hopefully some more snow is on the way and I will have some better pictures of it!
