Sorry, I struggled to think of a title for this photo. It’s Lou Lou’s eye, although the autofocus latched onto her fur rather than her eye. I quite like the effect.Read more "Cat’s eyebrow"
Sorry for the unoriginal post title – I’m trying to avoid having yet another post entitled stars at night, heavenly bodies, or anything else clichéd. In Bristol, the light pollution is pretty bad so I’ve been trying to find a decent compromise between somewhere away from street lights and somewhere that’s not a pain to […]Read more "Stars in the sky"
Well, eye of the domesticated cat. Here’s another snap of Lou Lou.Read more "Eye of the tiger"
The background For ages I’ve wanted a decent fisheye lens. Back when I was shooting with my Fuji S9600, I bought a filter-thread screw-on fisheye adapter. It was only about £30 and the chromatic aberration was awful, even in the viewfinder.

Today the Autumn sunlight was beautiful, especially in the early evening. I decided to head over to Clifton Suspension Bridge to try out my new Samyang fisheye lens. First I climbed up the cliff to where the Clifton Observatory is, to get these shots of the bridge as a whole. I’ve been here in the […]Read more "Clifton Suspension Bridge through a fisheye"

The other night, I saw a strange cloud formation at a weather front forming around sunset. I rushed to get my camera to capture it before it disappeared. The result of my haste is a pretty poor picture of a weather front, but I like it because of the way the fish eye lens curves […]Read more "An evening view"
Over the years I’ve had a number of cycle computers. Most have been Cat Eye, although some haven’t. It’s clear to me that Cat Eye make the best cycle computers – both in ease of use and in build quality (which is rather important when it will be subjected to rain, sun, vibration, heat and […]Read more "Review: Cat Eye Strada Cadence"
Today my fisheye lens arrived. It’s not a whole lens for an SLR camera; rather an “add-on” lens that screws into the filter thread on my Fuji S9600 or any other lens. I’ve tried a few ideas with it, and been as creative as one can possibly be in a boring flat on a lazy […]Read more "Playing with a fisheye lens"
