Daily Photo #406

Yep, Linda dragged me into the city today for lunch and collection of comic standing orders. I haven't shot any new photos for a few weeks but feel Birmingham is lacking something right now. The sky would have been perfect for skyline shots but I jsut feel something about the city is bland and uninviting right now. I'm not sure what it is as I need to get back out there and do something vaguely urban.

We passed the Selfridges building which is still a stunning piece of architecture and I think it inspired today's choice of shot due to its iconic nature although some people think it has been done to death, I still like it. So there!


The shape still intrigues me and there is no "one way" of shooting it which always excites me no end. If the weather holds up this weekend I may actually get around to shooting something. Fingers crossed.

I wonder if I can talk Linda into a photoshoot this weekend?


And if so, which outfit???

Daily Photo #404

I guess this blows the secret.

Secret life of a dalek

Daleks really have sweaty people inside operating them! Shock horror! (The photo is not of myself or anyone that I know!). I feel rather strange, photographing nekkid daleks.

Linda is a secret geek. If you ask her, she will deny it.

Avon (from Blakes 7) Calling

The photo she is worshipping is Paul Darrow, the actor who plays Avon in Blakes 7. It's funny but scifi icons affected how we turned out as adults. Scary stuff.

Still at home, although one of my house companions almost gave me a heart attack!


Just let her into the garden and five minutes later she had leaped on the neighbour's kitchen extension roof. Said cat then proceeds to jump 4 feet across an 8 foot drop to a fence no more than 4 inches wide. Needless to say she then fell off fence. Silly cat. Unharmed, luckily. Thank god I'm on something that calms my nerves right now!

The things cats will do to get your attention, eh?

A bit late but...

Vote for Created in Birmingham!

A C.I.B is a great resource that supports artists and creativity along with being a great melting pot for all things Brum.

I like this shot.

View from the platform

It seems timeless and the tracks going off into the distance add a sense of mystery.

Daily Photo #400

Sunday mornings? Feeling so tired and disoriented of late that one day sneaks into another and they all become the same. Coupled with feeling tired and blurry due to meds enhances this feeling of dislocation no end. Sleeping better but feeling exhausted for the majority of the day. Attention span is not great either but this is a pay off for the lack of mood spikes/swings.

I think Linda wants to drag me out to a park for a walk soon.


It's a little overcast so not taking my camera out today. Wish it were sunnier and warmer, it's bloody cold outside!! Maybe I can talk her into buying me lunch, that would be an incentive.
