Voyage of Discovery in the Garden

I’m currently taking part in an online course called Exploring Nature Through a Lens. In this course we’re learning about explorers and naturalists through history and exploring techniques and inspirations for our photography. One of the suggested books related to the course is Voyages of Discovery by Tony Rice. I decided to buy myself a…… Continue reading Voyage of Discovery in the Garden

Rescue Snowdrop

Not all my photos from my snowdrop walk came out well. This one was not in focus at all! So I decided to let that aspect of the image lead me and ended up with this dreamy, soft-focus shot after a bit of editing. I struggle with always wanting perfect crisp focus, but this reminds…… Continue reading Rescue Snowdrop

Snowdrop Season

It’s Snowdrop Season! Hurrah! I went for a walk yesterday to get some photos of these beautiful early flowers. Snowdrops are a bit like Covid vaccinations… a sign of hope, a sign that there will be better times ahead, a sign that spring is coming. Some of them had the added joy of lovely droplets…… Continue reading Snowdrop Season

Lens Artists #133– My Photography Journey

I’ve used cameras for years, but only casually until about 2012. When I was a kid we had 110 film cameras which we mostly used on holiday to take lots of snaps. You’d have to take the film to a processing shop and cross your fingers for some half decent photos! Here’s one my sister…… Continue reading Lens Artists #133– My Photography Journey

2020 Favourites

This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is about our favourite images from 2020. I’ve already posted about the photos/posts that were most popular among my readers, but now it’s my turn to look back at the year and think about my own personal favourites. Way back in January 2020, the light was just gorgeous on these…… Continue reading 2020 Favourites

2020 Top 10

I’ve been looking at the most popular posts on my blog for this year. I based it on both views and likes. To me, likes are more important as that tells me the viewer liked it enough to press the button. Views just tell me they had a look and doesn’t tell me whether or…… Continue reading 2020 Top 10

Christmas Bokeh

I decided to take some ‘proper’ photos of some of our decorations today. Yesterday’s photos were taken on my phone, and these are taken on my camera. My phone is great for a quick photo, but if you’re trying to get certain things in focus and others not, you really need to use a proper…… Continue reading Christmas Bokeh

New Traditions (and crochet update)

As you may know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, last year I crocheted a set of Christmas baubles. We also bought a living tree last year, for the first time, and the baubles were gradually added to it as I made them. This has started a new tradition for us. We…… Continue reading New Traditions (and crochet update)
