Day #87

Day #87Title: I See Spots Before My Eyes…
Location: At home
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I’m planning a colourful week (see the next 7 posts!) so decided to look around for something monochrome today. I’ve also been busy at work, stopping only to make a cuppa from time to time. And what did I spy when I opened the cupboard for a fresh mug? Drinking too much tea can make your eyes go funny…

Day #42

Day #42Title: Pea-Souper
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: What a contrast from yesterday! I woke up this morning to find a pea soup fog outside the bedroom window, and could barely see across the green to the houses opposite. An hour later, it had all burned off. Bit of a lazy shot today, admittedly, but I had lots to do and not much time to go out and take pictures.

Day #26

Day #26Title: Waving In The Breeze
Location: Dawes Farm, Handley Green
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I found these Pampas Grasses near a set of ponds between Handley Barns and Dawes Farm, during my 4.5 mile walk around Mill Green, and I deliberately chose 1/30th shutter speed when taking the image, to show the grasses blowing about in the breeze. But I was struggling with the light today – there was only weak sunlight and thin, high cloud which meant things looked OK in reality, but as soon as a scene was committed to the camera, everything looked pale and washed out, with little contrast. Some fiddling with Photoshop has helped.
