Day 99

lol, I really don’t know why I keep the day thing going. It’s kind of come to spluttering halt. I’ve been lucky enough recently to have some nice projects that I’ve been able to concentrate on and throw my creative energies into (when I can muster them!). One of which is a new blog, purely dedicated to my wedding photography. Please check it out and follow it here

I keep saying I won’t do event photography ever again, and then some one asks and I do. Again, it was charity. And at least the subjects had the virtue of being quite unique. I also had fun coming up with some interesting “look” with the aid of Perfect Photo Suite 8.5. Here are some examples, I hope you like them

Day 98 – A day to make a difference

Spent the day clearing rubbish from the beaches of Stormy Down and Ogmore today. A good humoured affair and the rain kept off until right till the very end. It would appear that the world is to be drowned in old shoe inserts, bottle tops and tampax applicators. Still; the beaches did seem cleaner and I think we all felt pretty good about that despite the rain. It’s a beautiful part of the world and deserves to be kept clean as much for the aesthetics as for the animal life it ruins.

Day 91


Visited the National Botanic Garden of Wales where they have an old school Apocraphery. Puts Boots to same.  This is one of the exhibits, an old leather folder with bottles of pills in. Very horror by gaslight.The Apocrathers pills

Day 89

Went to  to visit the S.S.Great Britain a few weeks back (a great day out and thoroughly recommended) in Bristol. While there we went to the dockside and visited the Museum of Bristol, which is also well worth a visit (and that ones free!).  I took this shot looking out through a display of small model ships (the dark shapes in the foreground) and really love the “ages” of ships;steam tug, three rigger and a plastic kayak. As well as that, just how busy the pictures is. I then worked for ages in Photosuite 8.5 get the look of the image just how I wanted (and stupidly forgot to save “the look” as a pre-set!!) but am really pleased with the result. I’m going to get to fine art test prints of this, and when I’m happy I’ll make them available on the web site. I hope you enjoy too.
