As someone who has had a stroke and also has Multiple Sclerosis, I'm well used to having to use any energy I have been allowed wisely. When I've been exceptionally busy with work then the priority is to use it for that, because it pays! Unfortunately afterwards, or if I've had a period of unrelated… Continue reading Ticking Over
https://35hunter.blog/2019/11/10/how-we-photograph-is-how-we-live-2/ The above link is for an article posted by Dan James on his excellent, and often thought provoking blog, 35Hunter. In brief, he muses on the possibility that the way people generally approach their everyday life life echoes in the way that they practise their photography. He ends, as he does on every post,… Continue reading Winging It
I don't know what to tell you about this one, apart from it is a single frame, not created in Photoshop proper photograph, of a household object - although admittedly not any other household will have a piece of unique Mrs H glass art, created by fusing together different, hand-cut glass shapes in sea-inspired colours.… Continue reading Fused
The summer season ban for taking dogs on the beach has lifted now. I have been busy with running the chalet rental but I do manage to take a walk or two down there among the rocks, pools, seaweed and sand again now. The rocks in the foreground here aren't always visible, it depends on… Continue reading Return to the Beach
I was going to post this B&W shot on my store, to be available to purchase. However, I was just checking it finely for spot imperfections and I kept coming across little tiny black specks to be spotted out, just in case anyone ordered a print large enough to be able to see them. Boscastle-Crackington… Continue reading Too Good
Two ever so slightly different images of the view of the coast, looking north from one of my favourite walks on the clifftops. Every time I go there, at least once a week, I can watch Seals, Peregrines and Kestrel, plus many assorted seabirds like Guillemot and Cormorant and all the usual gulls. This time… Continue reading Rusey and High Cliff
In response to a comment from Dan James on my last meadow images, who mentioned a Monet-like effect from some experimental shots he took, this image flagged in my memory as one that I had taken that had the feel of his impressionist style. I had remembered posting it before but it turns out that… Continue reading Monet-like?
I see that the last time I posted an in-focus straight-ish picture was around April.I'll just sort that out then. Hogweed in flower (great for the insects). I'm sure some bits of it are in focus. Perfectly fine picture, but probably not an unusual picture in any way. The only enjoyment I can personally take… Continue reading Hogweed and Competence
I was over on 35hunter reading one of Dan's series on close-up equipment (yes, I know, my last post was about not being overly concerned with equipment but generally I read most of what Dan posts, even when it's equipment focused - and this is one of the types of photography where a variety of… Continue reading Still Blurry but Closer
When I went out yesterday it was a little cloudy but bright. As I got to the beginning of the track that leads out to the coast path, where the view over the ocean opens out, I could see that there was a weather front just threatening to travel up the Bristol Channel and perhaps… Continue reading Rusey Cliffs and Lundy
It is just over a year ago now that my then sparsely filled blog was made an Editors Pick on WordPress Discover. The blog was relatively young, only going about six months and had a following you only needed two people with hands to count. I had only made about thirty posts of single Black… Continue reading How Discover didn’t help much.
A year has passed since I decided to make this blog 'my own', by paying for a domain name and to go without adverts.I know this because I have just had notice that my payment for the next year of it has just arrived (notice that it has been paid, not that it was due… Continue reading Renewal
