This morning was a very foggy one across Bristol, so I decided to take my camera to work and find something for this week’s Photo Challenge – framing your photos with a box. So you’ll understand why these photos are all taken through a cardboard box! Fog is my favourite weather – mainly because of […]Read more "Box camera"
This week’s Photo Challenge was Fire. This is my effort. For those who are wondering, no, this wasn’t a real fire. It’s nothing more luxurious than a Sainsbury’s carrier bag held over the flash with a hair band.Read more "A warm, glowing fire"
This glowing standby light reminds me that the appliances in my flat are never asleep – even when I am.Read more "Never asleep"
Last weekend I found my old microscope, that I was given as a child. Even by the standards of a school science lab, it’s pretty poor – but as I child it made me feel like I was a real scientist. Today I decided to see if I could take pictures with it using my […]Read more "Microscopic images"

This is another portrait of Hana, along the same lines as many I’ve done before. But this time, inspired by Stu’s recent challenge entry, I had a go at lighting the background with a coloured flash. It’s OK, but the LCD on my camera isn’t very good and since looking at the photo on my […]Read more "Another portrait"
