Photo365 – Day 303 – Alexplosion

I was in Ikea’s cafe eating meatballs…yum…and spotted a curtain backdrop and instantly saw my picture of the day. Thanks to Alex for standing up in a crowded cafe and humouring me, much to her embarrassment. All in the name of art darlings! I took it with the iphone with Hipstmatic set to black & […]

Photo365 – Day 302 – dreamscape

I was taking photos of berries earlier this morning backlit against the morning sun using an old Pentax M series 80-200mm zoom on the K20D, and noticed the background tree shape, and decided to switch attention to the tree. Adjusting focus so it’s out but still recognisable is an interesting technique that’s worth trying for […]

Photo365 – Day 301 – on the edge

Stanage Edge this evening. I went to shoot the sunset and then star trails, the sunset was a bit lack lustre but the stars were out. I spent about an hour in the dark on the edge – it was, as seems usual up there, very windy. I heard sheep rustling around, bats (i think) […]

Photo365 – Day 300 – needle and thread

Trying out a new combination of an old Vivitar 3x converter I just acquired and Pentax 100mm macro to create a 300mm f/8 macro lens. It lets you get really close (from a distance) Here’s one of the shots of a needle and cotton thread, photographed against the bristles of a cleaning brush that came […]

Photo365 – Day 299 – Post box

An interesting evening started out at this post box on the road over to Thorpe Salvin. I’d been considering shooting this for a few weeks, and tonight the sky was right. The only thing I hadn’t taken into consideration was cars. The post box is on a B road but I didn’t think it would […]

Photo365 – Day 298 – Autumn sunlight

Its low in the sky and despite the time of year still quite warm – I’m talking about the sun. And this shot is direct into the sun with a leaf in the foreground photographed using the infrared converted Pentax *ist D and 16-45mm zoom. I processed in lightroom to convert the red tone to […]

Photo365 – Day 297 – Neglected tomatoes

I grew a tomato plant this year but then neglected it so never picked the baby toms. They’re still hanging on in there several months later! I took this photo of a clump using an infrared converted Pentax *ist D and 50mm f/1.4 and processed in Lightroom to give a black & white look.

Photo365 – Day 296 – Nike and Hephaestus

A 5m high sculpture in front of Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium. I drove past and spotted a car boot sale outside the stadium, so went to see what was on offer. I found one stall selling magazines and was attracted to the cover of one with two free cover mount CDs. The cover had an Opeth […]
