Day 366~366!

Yipee I made it to the end, didn’t miss a single day and am chuffed to pieces with my project.  I learned a lot along the way, about composition, slowing down, being disciplined and lots of technical bits I hadn’t bothered with before. Next year will be a different beastie, it will be a 365… Continue Reading


Day 365~366

Tonight Phil came with me to photograph the bridges over the Tyne. I’ve seen loads from other people, and it probably doesn’t look any different to those, but this is mine and I’m chuffed it turned out so well.   I took a few others so here are they, The millennium bridge and The Baltic… Continue Reading


Day 363 & 364

Another busy day yesterday as we had our 2 grandkids staying over, I got my shot but by the  time we’d got the last one in bed and had something to eat it was too late to faff on the net. Also we’ve had 2 sunny if cold days, so the first shot is of… Continue Reading


Day 362~366

It’s been a busy day here today as we had family over for a festive tea, so Phil was doing tidying and I was doing cooking. No time for photo’s of my magnificent spread before it got eaten 😀 and as it’s late~ish now have just taken a shot of the globe lamp in our… Continue Reading


Day 361~366

The weather tonight is even worse than when we had Storm Barbara.  This I presume is Storm Connor, which wasn’t supposed to affect us much but it is, so I am staying in the warm.  Running out of lights to shoot indoors, so made a tea~light fest of most of my candle holders.


Day 358~366

Storm Barbara started on us about 12 midday and we thought it was a bit of a poor show to start with.  Phil and I went out dropping cards off to relatives and having cups of coffee with all, and by the time we drove home we were in the thick of it, Barbara was… Continue Reading


Day 356~366

Countdown at 10 now 🙂 Tonight I’ve been trying to shoot my fibre optic lamp, which is not as easy as I thought it would be, first I tried with the macro lens then with the 35mm and then I thought I’d move into the lounge and shoot it with some Christmas tree bokeh behind… Continue Reading


Day 355~366

When Phil is on a late shift and I am on an early, or when he’s on an early shift and I am off so want to stay up reading, or if I get insomnia and don’t want to disturb him, I trot off to sleep in the spare room.  When I snuggle down, and… Continue Reading


Day 354~366

Whist trawling the world wide web for inspiration I came a cross a similar shot to this that I’ve done, though of course did my own take on it. Cheers!


Day 353~366

For the past 3 years we’ve had a pair of Robins visit our garden and The Happy Eater tree, but this year have hardly seen them.  Today though Phil spotted this little robin jumping from the car window ledge onto the mirror back and forth, we think he thought there was another robin in it!   He… Continue Reading


Day 352~366

Something a bit different to my night shots, the sun was shining today and low in the sky, Skye was sitting on the dining room table and shafts of sunlight came through and illuminated part of her. i tried to catch the light hitting her whiskers, and in her eyes too. this next is my… Continue Reading


Day 351~366

Popped up to Penshaw’s Monument this evening, as I’d read they have a new cost efficient LED lighting system for it.  It used to be lit up with static yellow lamps, but now the colours move around the monument, tried to get them all in but even on a long exposure I missed getting the… Continue Reading
