Daily Photo #84

Today's pic was caught by chance, one of those balloon releasing charity wotsit thinagamies. I was shooting old faithful and lo and behold, they started releasing the 'loons so I caught it. It's slightly cropped as I was testing a grad filter gadget but still it wasn't bad for a literal point and shoot effort (I was shooting on aperture priority afterall).


I wonder how far they went?

Robert Downey Junior *is* Tony Stark

Okay, coming home to this certainly lifted my spirits. What with Iron Man, Diary of the Dead and The Dark Knight, 2008 is looking pretty hot on the cinema front.

RDJ looks spot on as Stark and a surprisingly attractive Paltrow as Pepper Potts is looking pretty spot on.

I think this one will piss all over the ever so slight disappointment that was Spider-Man 3.

I think this sums up my attitude to the week. Glad to see the back of an overly long and difficult one.


The pic is of Linda messing around with a cyberwoman costume. Anyways, sci fi inspired obscene finger gestures are always good for a laugh. Not sure what the weekend will bring but B'ham is full of coppers and Labour Party big wigs. I spent the afternoon trying to spot police snipers as I walked down Broad Street.

Is it Friday yet? Because if not, let me sleep. Let me sleep the sleep of the dead because I am uber knackered, like (as we say in B'ham, I would add "bosting" but I am feeling less than that superlative right now).

So, here's a picture of a tulip.


I like tulips.

Today I have been having mostly the kind of thoughts you could sum up below:


Had to take some flextime due to feeling most knackered due to the demands of the last couple of days. This afternoon was spent catching up on lost sleep due to disturbed patterns of Monday and minor earth tremors last night.

Still, only 2 more wake ups and it's Le Saturday.

So so so tired. Visits are so exhausting so after spending a night in a guest house after an early start on Monday and arriving back home about 20 mins ago, all I want to do is sleep but I have work and write ups to do tomorrow so I need my wits about me and will try not to fall asleep before 8pm (I hope!). Met some lovely people and saw some wonderful country scenery around Devizes, Wiltshire and Bath.

Anyway, I chose this shot which I captured in Morocco. I'm not sure what all the wires are but they seem to be going somewhere.


The light and open spaces inspired me today to use this shot. It's been blue skies and nice weather. Maybe spring is on the way afterall. I wish it was as warm as Morrocco though ;)

One from the Saturday shoot. Classic pub design, something you don't see very often in this climate of Weatherspoons and Gastro Pubs.


I enhanced the colours a touch to give it a gaudy 1970's feel.

Daily Photo #78

I know it's a change from my usual stuff but how could I resist posting this one?


Linda decided to take charge and made me shoot some pics of her in this outfit. She said that if she didn't end up a librarian, she wanted to join the police so this kind of fulfills that wish for her (well, not joining the police and I don't think they have quite bought into this kind of uniform as yet).

So, fun fun fun. Still getting used to the speedlight. I really need a softbox/set of lights.
