Day 17~366 & a Sunday Fraggle report

It’s been a little while since I wrote a Fraggle report, not since Christmas I think, but apart from my ongoing 366 project I’m still taking shots of the cat and the sunsets :). Work has been busy with lots of places to drive to and lots of clients to see, but no chance to stop and take photo’s, and I don’t like getting out of the car in the rain and the wind! Had a bit of a respite from the weather, and its been cold but no rain for a few days, it’ll be back towards the end…

The Sunday Fraggle Report

I didn’t pick up my camera until Wednesday night this week, when I was treated to a magnificent sunset over the houses. That was from my front bedroom, and from the back of the house we also got the moon mixed up in it all. I took some more shots of my christmas tree, possibly went over the top there :). Managed to get a better picture of the birds on The Happy Eater tree..these are long tailed tits. Today all Phil’s kids and grandkids came for a visit, and I got a happy shot of the newest one, Liddy…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~ Bits & Bobs edition

It’s just about the end of September, and apart from days out, as always I’ve been taking pictures of daily life. We went up to Edinburgh at the beginning of the month, as a new scale model show has started up there called Scale Scotland, and Phil was asked to do a demonstration of figure detailing and composition. The show was held at The Airport Hilton, which is a nice enough hotel, and it was cool to be staying in the same place as where the show was held, as we didn’t have to get up too early :). I…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~loose ends edition.

Already a week in September has gone by and I’ve not yet got round to finishing August photographs.  I have been away to a military model show in Scotland this weekend, and of course have photo’s from that! But I still want to post the photo’s of my little family down south from last weekend. It was great to see my son Ben and my grandson Lewis, who just gets cuter every time I see him 🙂 We had a day out at Milton Keynes, the shopping centre to start. Then we went off to Wirral Lake to the playground…..

The Sunrise Sunset Fraggle report

It’s ages since I’ve been able to take a sunset shot, but I do like them, so am posting some of the ones I’ve taken along the way in the past few years.. Back in 2008 photography was just for holidays for me, and in Tunisia I had a little Fuji SX2000. I didn’t know about RAW, or post processing, or anything to do with photography, just point and shoot and hope to capture some good memories. I got up at 6am on the day we left to get the sunrise from our hotel balcony. I think these 2 pictures…

Sunday Afternoon

Which it is here at the moment, and quite sunny, but cold now autumn is passing and winter is looming. I’ve had a week off work which is great, but also not so great as it’s the last day and am back to work tomorrow. 😦 I do like not being at work, a lot. The weather has not been so kind though and I have not got out much which is a shame as I’d fancied a few walks with my camera, but I did read a lot, I finished the series of Jack Reacher novels, and am into…
