Photography: suggestive images

Girl enjoying the fun day

This looks fun, photos of children enjoying themselves gives a very positive image. We can promote parks, nature reserves, pubs, carnivals, whatever we like with suitable photographs suggesting a positive image. Some photos are negative however. (more…)


Photography: Kids and horses at the Frying Pan

The Frying Pan kids

This is one of the first photos that I took on Sunday. The horse looks in focus and you can read the number plate on the van, but farther away the picture isn’t so clear. It’s a good example of identifying the subject and focusing on that. (more…)


The Sunday Ramble: Back to square one

DSC_0034

You are probably wondering why I’ve started with a picture of my runner beans. I have just been out to pick them. I have enough for my meals all week! When I first started this blog, I wrote my Sunday rambles as lunch was cooking. (more…)


The Review: getting close to nature

Wednesbury Pool

Mental illnesses have been in the news this week, particularly anxiety and depression. The economic problems of the last few years seems to have made the rat race even more stressful. I think we often need to get back to nature. (more…)


Photography: 2014 super-moon

Supermoon Aug 2014

I took some shots of the super-moon at the weekend. I managed to get some detail, even though it was very bright. I used my Nikon D3200 with a 55 – 300mm lens and tried to hold it as still as possible, shooting out of the window. (more…)

So I’ll tell you about this charity bike ride at the Frying Pan in Darlaston in advance. It’s today, 9th August 2014 at the Frying Pan in Darlaston starting at 10am. (more…)


Darlaston Fun Day

I photographed Darlaston Fun Day in King’s Hill Park yesterday. I didn’t have to go far for this one, I could hear the PA system from my garden. It rained before I even set out and so I was expecting poor light and more rain. (more…)


Black Country photos

1 Northern Soul

I’ve been busy taking photos this week, but the weather has been better. On Friday I reviewed a art exhibition in Darlaston and managed to photograph Jays Disco at the Vine too. I didn’t even know what Northern Soul was, but I like it!

Photography: Out in the Black Country

The River Tame

On Sunday we went out in the wilds of the Black Country. This is Sandwell Valley Country Park and the canalised section of the River Tame. I was using my 300mm telephoto lens which gave me the opportunity to zoom in on subjects. (more…)
