Take your camera shopping.

We have many a shop around our homes that has some interesting options for photos.

I enjoy popping into my local garden centre and seeing what I can find to photograph. Below are photos taken 2 years ago at one of these garden centres.

Next time you are going to your local garden centre pack your camera in and see what photos you take home.

What am I?

What am I?

I’m oval but also round. IMG_0183I am part of most people’s childhood memories.
IMG_0166Adults and children love me.
IMG_0167I might be yellow this time next time I might red or blue or brown or maybe even pink.
IMG_0169I melt in you hands on a hot summers day.
IMG_0170Or I could melt in your mouth if you can keep the temptation to bite me at bay.
IMG_0168Are you getting any closer to the answer?
IMG_0172I’m a Smartie of course!
IMG_0165Hope you had fun looking and reading this entry about shooting macro photos of Smarties.

Out with the old in with the new.

Out with the old in with the new.

These photos were taken 2 years ago at our local river at the end of winter and beginning of spring. It was so nice to see life starting to come back to the grey and brown surrounding.

IMG_9276 IMG_9420 IMG_9439 IMG_9488I love the effect that your eyes get drawn up to the top of the photo and then starts running down the middle to the bottom.IMG_9500 I like this photo even though it’sa bit busy in the background, I’ll have to revisit this site.

Blast from the Past Part III

Blast from the Past – Part 3, Feb-March 2011

A few more photos from 2 years ago. The photos were taken in the areas surrounding Bathgate and West Calder in Scotland. It’s nice to look back over these photos as they bring good memory back of struggling with learning the basics of photography. The camera did 90% of the work as I didn’t know enough yet to get the best out of it.
