365 Day 14

I was feeling very lazy tonight-
sitting by the fire all warm and cosy with a glass of wine,
so the fire is my photo of the day:

Here are some more:

365 DAY 13

This is my photo of the day-the moon this morning as I left for work.
It was taken very quickly. I think I need to use a tripod to get a crisp image:

365 Day12

Today's photo is of the primary school next to my workbase. The photo is taken from the car park. It is a sad comment on our society that our schools look more like prisons than places where children go to learn.

365 Day11

What a horrible wet and windy day we've had today! As a result I have not been out and about, so my photos today are indoor shots. Evidence of Emily, I'd call them. I'm not sure how I managed to get a daughter like Emily. She takes such pride in her room, everything is always tidy and she has little collections of her favourite things. I chose the photo of the day because I liked the colour against the white walls, and also because I like the perspective:

Here are some more of her favourite things:

AND finally-what I learned about today was White Balance. I has it set on auto, but was getting an awful yellow colour cast to the photos. So here's what a difference it makes just by adjusting the white balance to tungsten. These photos are unedited, I know the focus is not good, but it's the difference in colour that I'm interested in. the top photo is auto white balance, the bottom is the tungsten setting.

365 day10

It was very,very windy out today so I opted to stay indoors and take some protrait shots of Emily instead of venturing out. Emily bought a new beret so that became the focus of these portraits. As you can see I tried a number of enhancements-just using Picasa-and I like this Sepia one best:

365 DAY 9

Emily is going to see FAME tonight with her friends.
They are all dressing up FAME style-or what they think is FAME style.
So I took some photos before she left.
I like this one without head or feet!

I also like this one of her before she got ready.
I like the perspective on this one.
I was standing on a chair.

And finally a collage of some of the others.

365 Day 8

Today I drove to work with my point 'n shoot camera around my neck. Everytime I sat at a red light I took a quick snap through the window. My photo of the day is my favourite-a crane in the city centre-I did try this on in black and white-but I really like the brown tones and the lights!

Here are some more. Remember to click on the image if you want to see it closer.
