I adore just fiddling and moving and readjusting things, I know it drives some people to tears, but I love it. I also played with some…

Regular Random – Kitchen Kitcsh

I have owned these two tiny American Folk Art Angels for many, many years. I have never photographed them before, but I was tidying up in the kitchen and moved them to put something away, I picked them up and looked at them, so sweet, so kitsch, surely they deserved their 5 minutes of fame?…

Regular Random – Last of the Autumn Colour

Just outside my front door, I have two magnificent weeping cherry blossom trees, on either side on a large ornamental fish pond. These trees are dual purpose; in Summer they protect the front windows from harsh early morning – midday sun, in Winter when they have lost all their leaves, they let in the weak…

Regular Random – Vintage Roses #3

Another rose set for this week’s Regular Random, I took a 5 minute set each day over Easter, this time I decided to get the Nikon D7100 out of retirement and put the Tamron 90mm Macro on it. I forgot how much I enjoy a proper macro. I love being able to capture all the…

I showed some footage and photos from our little drone, Defiant#1 the other week. We can’t always be out flying it, A/ There a lot of places you cannot fly it, B/ I think it needs to be something interesting C/ the conditions have to be favourable. So on a recent exploration of the local…

Regular Random – Vintage Pink #2

Recently I bought a bunch of perfectly gorgeous vintage pink long-stemmed roses. Every day over Easter I went out and spent 5 minutes with them, slightly different backdrops, different cameras and different lenses. Soft, simple, elegant and basic. This time was one single bud, shot on my neutral canvas, I love the texture and soft palette…
