Eyes Wide Open

November 30, 2010

This photograph was taken earlier in the year at Warwick Castle.


Eye See

November 29, 2010

Had no time for blog photographs so, I’ve had to trawl through my almost empty archives for posts this week. Although we’re having a cold snap, I’ve only seen a very minor snow fall so far. Personally, I don’t want anymore than that, it’s enough for me… I like to look at snow but, I’d be happy if the snow just fell in the garden and the local park. 😉 Here’s one from last year’s snow fall.


light – 0

November 26, 2010

This is my favourite photo of the week and the one that got me inspired to playing with light. A busy weekend planned for me as it’s Elliot’s fifth birthday. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the photos this week and have a great weekend.


light – ball

November 25, 2010

It looks more interesting than it is and complex than it was. 😉


light – marbles

November 24, 2010

Marbles.. wonderfully pretty spheres. Originally this week was going to be about spherical objects but, I found the light set up more interesting. I love the shadows that have been cast in this photograph.


lights – circles

November 23, 2010

For this photo, I placed the light source just behind the lovely bouncy ball to allow it to cast a nice shadow. The ball was sitting on a white piece of card.


light – not eight

November 22, 2010

This week I’m posting the light-week photos that I bumped last week :).

First up, ‘not eight’. Nothing very special about this at all. 😦


liquid – Melting

November 19, 2010

Well, this photo brings liquid week (1) to a close. If you’ve followed the whole week’s photos then you know what the object in this photograph is. I still find it so amazing how water and the speed at which the photo is taken can completely change the look of the original object. This photo hasn’t been manipulated in photoshop other than to darken it. I figured it didn’t need anything else.

I hope you enjoy liquid week, have a great weekend!


liquid – A Drop of Soap

November 18, 2010

This was the photo that started this week’s theme, a drop from a tab soap bottle. I think it took me about 20 attempts to get this photo and, it’s turned out nicely. The soap was actually a light blue but, I prefer this green look. 😉 This pearlised tab soap is good for getting photos of (Cussons AntiBacterial Wash, in case you care), however, I’m pleased the kids didn’t see, after all, I keep telling them not to waste so much soap. After I’d finished taking my photos, there was a large puddle of soap around. Oh well, in the name of art 😉


liquid – warm

November 17, 2010

This was the second photograph I took. Simply, water flowing from the tap. Depending upon the shutter speed, it can really change the look of the water. As with the first photo, I played with it in photoshop to try to make the boring background of my bathroom a bit more interesting.
