Of Smoke in the night

Of smoke in the night
Long time no update!
My last laptop was running slowly, which made editing images a slow, slow process. By the time I’d uploaded them I couldn’t be bothered to post about it.

Anyway, I’ve got a new laptop (mmm speedy) and have started to take some photos again.

Laid to waste

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!)

This took ages to shoot.
The weather forecast said it would be cloudy all day. It most certainly was not.
When I woke up it was cloudy, by the time I was ready to go out it was a bit cloudy but the sun kept coming out. I waited for a bit and it clouded over, so off I went. By the time I got here it was sunny! Intermittently clouds kept going over the sun so I had to keep waiting and running back and forth. Grr!

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.
