The Fraggle Report~ Spidey edition

When practicing photography, a piece of advice that is often given, is to do a study of something, take pictures of it at different angles, with different lenses different times of the day.  So I did the first two yesterday morning. All these webs are the work of one busy chap. I used my fuji XT1 with 18-55mm zoom, and 60mm macro. So tomorrow am having a day out with Sophie yay! and we are taking our cameras to Howick Hall,which has some amazing gardens, not been before so really looking forward to it. 🙂 laters gaters 😉  

The day after Sunday post.

Ho hum, late again, 🙂 Another week with crap weather so not many photo ops. Still a few animals found, should have posted this one last weekend but forgot, these are the famous cows of Milton Keynes ~The Concrete Cows in Milton Keynes, England are an iconic work of sculpture, created in 1978 by Canadian-born artist, Liz Leyh. There are three cows and three calves, approximately half life size.The Cows are constructed from scrap skinned with fibre glass reinforced concrete donated by a local builder.

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…

A woeful week

It started off well enough on Monday, with lovely blue skies and nice drives out in the country to see some far flung clients.  On Monday I spotted the snail~mail and dumb~phone combo on one of my journey’s   and on Tuesday I spotted this field, in which the lake pond thing, I think, is a consequence of the heavy rainfall we’ve had over the past couple of years. Lots of farm land has been flooded over the past couple of years and some of the resultant ponds have never quite retreated. You can see a fence trotting out into…

It’s not Sunday

So, posting today because I’m off and away to Folkestone to the Euromilitaire Military model Show. Phil is taking a few of his models to put in the competition and I’m driving us down there. It’s always a fab weekend and we get to go to our favourite Chinese restaurant, twice! 🙂 Here are the models Phil is putting in the figure section.   We won’t be home til late Sunday night as it’s a 6 hour drive for us. In the meantime this week has seen my bird feeder being taken over by the spider community of the garden,…
