Day 20 April Photo a Day Challenge - Something I drew ...........

My mission at the start of the challenge was to improve my camera skills and this used a new technique for me (bulb setting!!!!)
Incase it's not too obvious ............ it's a Christmas tree!!!!!

I holed myself up in the downstairs loo (no windows, therefore pitch black) and used a torch to create the effect.
Good fun.

Day 15 April Photo a Day Challenge - Sunset

So hard today - the sunset wasn't very exciting. A bit yellow in amongst the clouds! 
But, to stay true to the challenge I took the photo of today's sunset - enhanced it a bit (okay, a lot!) and this is what I came up with............

I nearly didn't put it up because I really wanted to put this one on (but it was taken about 4 years ago in San Francisco!)...........

Day 7 April Photo a Day Challenge - Shadow

The topic today is shadow and all hopes of a lovely photo out in the sunshine were dashed because of the weather!
I had to resort to a torch against a blank wall - the silhouette is a 'Smoky Man' bought on a trip to Germany a few years ago. You put a fragranced cone inside them and set it alight - it just smokes and the smoke/fragrance comes out the mouth of the figure. This 'Smoky Man' is a Pharmacist which is my job.
The challenge can be found over at Fat Mum Slim blog.

Something a bit different ...............

In an effort to improve my photography skills I have decided to take part in a blog challenge.
The Fat Mum Slim  challenge is to take a photo everyday with a theme.
Today's theme is 'My Reflection" and this is my photo...
We were out for a walk today and came across a fairly still area of water. The weather was beautiful.
Not sure I will manage every day but I will try.
