Gone Fishing

Today has been one of those days. It started off well (nice, crisp, bright winters morning where you could almost smell the arrival of spring). Went to get my hair cut.

kB decided we should go into town for an early lunch and things started to go downhill from here. In reality I wasn’t really in the mood for going out exploring on my own, but as the weather forecast for the week gets worse I knew I’d be mad at myself if I didn’t go. So we went into town, had a bad lunch then I drove myself to Ladybower only to get there and realise I’d not brought the “quick release” thing which connects the camera to the tripod. Ladybower is a reservoir. I had plans for 10 stop justice and misty looking water. Not to be 😦

Flying Home

Had a bit of a mardy morning as it was cloudy and I couldn’t get the PHP/mySQL to work, in a fit of rage I deleted everything off and had a nap. Had anticipated only having a half hour nap, but kept hitting snooze then finally turned it off telling myself I’d get up only to fall back to sleep. Two hours in total. However when I woke up, I was awoken by the sun.

I hastily had some dinner and headed out.

Cushion Chrysanthemum

Took some shots whilst I was waiting for the hot water to warm up, after my last couple of days where I thought I would get an easy shot but they turned out to be harder than I imagained I decided to go for flowers. These are the bouquet that I’ve had since my birthday, so we’re looking at them being over 3 weeks old.

On Saturday I tried to photograph these chrystanthemums but couldn’t get the lighting right. This shot worked without the texture in the background, but I preferred it with. It’s always satisfying when you struggle to take a shot but then get it right later on 🙂

Draw me a picture

I really struggled with this shot tonight. To say it’s “only pencils” it was a lot harder than I’d anticipated, and truth be told I was looking forward to shooting something easy. Not especially pleased with the results (Ironically this is the third shot I took out of 80) but I suppose that if we don’t try new things we will never get better.

One more magic potion

*insert Ensiferum lyrics here*

This was actually a lot harder than I’d anticipated. Much harder than the rose shot. After much trial and error I seemed to be getting decent smoke from both the pot and the mug, and lighting was OKish. I think that I should probably have saved this shot for next Tuesday (it’s half term).
