Welcome to my blog

This is my diary blog which I started when I retired from the Civil Service in April 2010. I like to include some of the things that I see and do with as many photographs as possible. Thank you for visiting my blog I hope you enjoyed it and will return to see what I have been doing. Or you could always join and be one of my followers.

If you would like to use one of my photographs then please ask me first, as they are all subject to copyright.

If you are interested in my crafts then I have added these to my crafting blog -

On Tuesday I started my City and Guilds in Photography, Level 1.   There are about a dozen of us in the class and our tutor is Andrew Gilpin.  This first weeks homework is to photograph a plastic white cup, in 3 different ways.   Have to think about that one.

Then on Wednesday I went to the Photocraft Camera Club as I had entered the first competition for this 2011/12 year.  I entered 3 photographs at level 1 and I am delighted to say that I got 10 marks and first place for one of my photographs.  

This is the photograph that gave me the 10 points and the first place.

I did get 8 1/2 marks for this photograph and the judge commented on how I could have cropped it more and perhaps lightened the face of the bee a little more.

And finally I got 8 marks on this one, which again received comments from the judge about further cropping.

So not a bad week on the photography front.
