Smarties Refraction

May 6, 2012

These are some refraction photos that I took a few weeks ago, with the kids. A lot of fun was had by all, especially them, after the photo shoot when they ate the subjects…

Have a great week 🙂


Oil and Water

March 25, 2012

This past weekend was a lot of fun and very tiring. We stayed at the Legoland Hotel this past weekend just as it was being invaded by Star Wars characters. Coming to breakfast to see armed storm troopers is a great sight. 🙂

Anyway, the picture below was a lot of fun to create. Oil drops in water, with wrapping paper underneath. One child doing the lighting, the other pressing the trigger button and me doing the focusing… fun 🙂

So today I finally took some new photos. This is not one of them 🙂 I haven’t looked at any of the images on my computer as yet but I’m hoping they turned out okay. So, for me and probably many of you, that’s the first week back at work done. Reality sucks…

Have a great week 🙂



July 24, 2011

One year ago yesterday I finally got the chickenpox which sucked because it was my wife’s birthday, and having a husband and child with the pox is not a good way to spend a birthday. This year a couple of close friends birthdays also went similar ways. For one, I was ill, for the other, he fell of his motorbike. Then for my birthday, one of the kids was ill. On each of those occassions we’d booked tickets for something and for each, we were unable to attend. So, yesterday and today, nothing booked, nobody got ill and we got to go and watch Cars2 and head to the beach. Lovely. 🙂

Along with this I’d gotten a few weeks into this blog this time last year and, being home for a few weeks allowed me to spend some good time on macro photography. I got a lot of great support and comments from a variety of people and now, finally, I’ve been photo blogging for over a year. I’d like to say a huge thank you to those of you who visit, to those who visit and comment and especially to those who’ve been visiting and commenting here for the entire time. As always, some have disappeared but a couple have stuck with me and kept on commenting, and I really do appreciate each and every comment and the support… it really keeps me motivated.  Thank you!

Have a great week. 🙂


In Search of the Perfect Corona

I’m still in my making a mess and photographing it phase. During my time off this Christmas, I plan to make a mess as I work on this type of photography. 😉

Have a great weekend… 🙂


The Great Divide

December 9, 2010

This was taken at the beach, around 2 years ago, I believe. I have no idea why but, I thought the strange angle make an interesting photo and then, I abused it in photoshop. Still, I like the result.
