Big Toe

Last night I wrote on my facebook status that I had no inspiration for my photo of the day. Someone responded by suggesting I took a photo of my big toe.

Sky Writing

S for Shona

Traffic lights

Taken on my way home late Wednesday night. It's hand held so a bit blurry really. I'm not sure I could be bothered taking my tripod out just for this shot though...

Sunday 13th

We went along to our friend's little boy's dedication service on Sunday. WE had a nice time and he was extra cute. Here he is playing in the creche. I'm not sure what he's looking at but he is clearly taking it very seriously!

Gorgeous George

My lovely friend and her budgy George. We had an enjoyable day today, much of which was spent chatting, eating and wandering around Primark!

The Manchester Eye

Today I was fortunate enough to have a child free trip into the city centre. I have walked passed the "Big Wheel" many a time and pondered photographing it, but every time I have had at least one child with me and the moment has never been right.

I was very pleased that the sun was shining, partially because it made for a brighter and better photo, but also because it just makes life more cheerful!

Rubber Ducky no. 2

Remember Ducky? She insisted on modelling for me again this evening before allowing me to have my much awaited and deserved soak in the bath. I think I have improved in my rubber duck photography somewhat, don't you?

*Please* indeed!

*Shocked emoticon*

Colourless Cat

Taking a Black and white photo of my black cat was trickier than expected. I like the texture though, even if you can't see her in much detail!

Ipod blur

Not terribly original or interesting but I thought I'd have another go at this effect where I keep one spot in focus and the rest 'blurred'.

Pop Idol

I'm really just trying to get the hang of using lighting and back drops etc at the moment. Eventually I'll start to take some more interesting and *clever* shots.

playing at MOSI

Museum of Science and Industry. We've been a few times and I just never seem to be able to take a decent photo there?! Apologies for this very boring and poor quality photo but I had a busy day and really didn't take anything for the blog.

First Day

This morning was my little Big girl's first day at her new nursery school.


Over the next few weeks I'm going to be taking more photos of Bob and various other objects so I can learn more about lighting and set up photos, (I'm sure there's a more technical term but I don't know it).

Bob Waves hello

Meet Bob, someone who you will be seeing quite a bit more of in the future. I think his head and stomach are the wrong way around but who knows?
