Time for change #review

You might have noticed that my blog posts have changed this week. I want my writing to be more successful and to be read by more people. I’ve decided to concentrate my efforts in one place on A Zillion Ideas and make better use of my photography too. I can optimise the SEO better on my other site using a plug-in as well.

Summer events and landscapes #photography

The end of spring and through the summer is the events season for me and I hope to do a lot more this year. The first carnival is next weekend.

Pollen and other hazards #Sunday ramble

Stock photos #photography

1 spring daffodil

Today’s photo of a daffodil isn’t very good, because I took it in really poor light. Notice I have added the copyright notice so it can be seen easily. I’m going to start taking ‘stock’ photos and will add a copyright notice to them. (more…)


The Saturday Review #Blackcountry

GREAT BRIDGE (49)

The sun came out a little bit on Tuesday, so we went out to take some photographs. This is Farley Park in Great Bridge. I’ll be using more pictures that I took on Tuesday for my weekly photography lesson on Wednesday. (more…)


Creative Black Country? #Sunday #Ramble

ART EDIT

I read this morning that here in Britain we aren’t very good at creating technology, but we are good at using it. There is no British version of Microsoft, but we have lots of creative people using computers to create art, photographers using digital cameras and of course trendy writers. (more…)
