The Start of Autumn

Today is the official start of autumn. So to celebrate my favourite time of year I’ve decided to take a photo each day throughout September and October.
When I went out today I limited myself to one lens. So my kit was:
• Pentax k3
• Tamron 90mm macro lens 2.8

Sun on the leaves I really liked the way the sun was hitting these leaves as I walked into the woods. I had wondered if the sun would still be too harsh, given that it was August yesterday, but I didn’t need to worry. Acorn

Who can resist an acorn!

In the Woods I thought the tree on the left looked a bit dark and spooky. So naturally I had to take a picture. Dragonfly

I was able to get up close to this little fellow who just sat there minding his own business. There was a really massive bright yellow dragonfly buzzing around, but unfortunately he didn’t stop still so I couldn’t catch him.

Tomorrow I was thinking about getting up and shooting the sunrise. Then I checked the weather and it said it would be misty (This is fine), then I checked the weather again and it says no mist just heavy clouds. I suppose I will have to monitor it!

Three coats on the feature wall in the room and landing. It was dark blue  and I didn’t like it. In fact I’d never liked it but I’d let kB choose the colour (mistake!) so after a discussion where kB admitted he was fed up of it too, I decided to paint it light grey. Two white undercoats on in the day, and the first coat of grey on this evening. One more coat of grey tomorrow, then off to see the deer (Hopefully, weather permitting!)

Visiting Hackfall

Yesterday we went to my mum and dad’s for tea. Whilst we were there my mum showed me this ruin in the Times supplement, which was for a place called Hackfall. It said that it was in North Yorkshire, so given that that’s not too far away I investigated on Google Maps. Google suggested it was about an hour and half drive away so mum and dad decided they would go, and naturally I tagged along.


It was very nice, and not very busy at all. So un-busy that I felt I could wip my floaty dress on and do a quick gas mask/skull photo to go in my collection for the half term project 😉

The last remains

First day off today! Weather was a bit naff, but this did mean that I could get the house tidied. I have actually sorted out my photography props and clothes. I have, over the last year or so, amassed things which I don’t use any more. Some of them are broken, some were duds off eBay (mainly really cheap dresses which were too short on my tall self). I’ve organised my boxes into the following; backdrop box, dress box, prop box and box of dresses and props for next years project that I’ve already bought because I have literally no self control.

For whatever reason I decided today to start putting together my Project 365 2015 photo book. I was going to do it in half term, but I believe it may have been a delay tactic for putting off marking Psychology papers. I realised that I had pictures missing from my album on Flickr, grrr, but it’s all sorted now!
Just to keep adding to it at the end of this month (and Nov and Dec!)
