Part 1 HERE After the drummers finished it was time to walk down and find a good spot to set up the tripods for the firework display over the sea. On the way I took a couple of shots of the illuminated people and strange looking Father Christmases So on to the fireworks, which I… Continue Reading
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
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
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
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
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.
Into t he home stretch now, 6 days left. I saved my Christmas Tree lights for today’s post, hope everyone is having a fab day.
To all my Wordypeep followers, especially those who are following my 366, thanks for your encouragement and comments 🙂
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
Tomorrow we are expecting Storm Barbara, with gusts of wind between 50-70mph.
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
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
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!
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
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
