Week 46 of this never-ending 366 challenge

I know I shall be sorry when the challenge is over but for the moment….

Anyway, this week, back home, from India into the cold climate of the British autumn. I hope you might forgive that I haven’t been hanging around outside much for photos this week but, on the positive side, it is pushing me to think about some indoor still lifes… Which it would seem I do need some practise with. Here goes:

Yet again this picture of my cute little Jack Russell because. not only did she win club dpi of the year at our local club but she has now won a bronze medal at the Sussex Photographic Federation this month.

WHY did I come back from town with more Christmas decorations? Save me from Christmas in November.

 

 

Week 28 0f 366 Challenge

It is only days until #2 son flies off for months and months of adventures in SE Asia so we all got together at the weekend. And then, he with his sketchbook and me with a camera, we visited the local wildlife park. Great week.

Imagine the things they’ve seen and captured between them.

Sunday’s post was a multipicture post – how could I choose just one?

Week 27 of 366

What a week it’s been. #2 son is home for a couple of weeks and after years of failing to drag us along to the huge festival at Glastonbury, we conceded to the much smaller, more local Love Supreme festival (link to more photos) that focuses on jazz and soul music. Despite spending 3 nights in a tiny hiking tent, we were truly spoiled and came home aurally satiated.

Thankfully, there was a lounge area supplying wifi so the first 3 photos were edited in mobile Lightroom on the ipad. Although it doesn’t have all the functions, I have to say I was impressed. But as for the slightly soft focus…. well, that’s my fault.
