I'm trying to do a photo a day at the moment by choosing one picture and allocating it to the day, I'm manging to keep up so far but will be surprised if I make it past January!

Here are a couple of photos I took of some birds(Starlings?) desperate for a bath and drink. Each time a car came down the road they all flew off, then came straight back as soon as the coast was clear. Took them from upstairs window, quite surprised how well they came out.

Sparrows, my dear Ian.

And doesn't look like you were that high up when you took those, especially the second one.

These are all models!

A few pictures of Alfie who's still growing alarmingly quickly:

Just wish I could get Alfie to recognise the camera as Jake could, he's very difficult to get pictures of but I guess that's like most dogs. He's got the hang of responding to his name, sitting and maintaining eye contact but giving paws is proving a challenge.

Anyway hopefully that onslaught is enough to convince other people to post photos..

Sorry, but I haven't had the time to get the camera out for months. Managed to do a set for Macro Mondays on Flickr towards the end of last year, this one got an explore:-

Nice Alfie pics and liking the water droplet. But what's that blue item that's refracted in the droplet? Looks kinda like a kinder surprise toy tub, but a bit longer...

It's a capsule tablet thingy. The theme for the week was 'sick'. Hyperdermic with a droplet focusing the capsule. Took a little while to setup that one.

I thought that was a technically impressive picture but the composition is really clever.

Ta. I miss fiddling around with the camera doing silly little macro stuff. Unfortunately it's that or pass my finals....

I should be spending a lot more time fiddling around with it as I'm not getting the best out of what is an incredibly capable camera. Unlike you though I have no real excuse, it's a shame I'm so far north as I really would like to get some professional tuition but there's none of that up here.

I met with friends on Friday (the ones holding Alfie) who I'd been visiting at New Year, I was amused because they were keen to know how I'd taken the pictures of the fireworks - they were amazed at how much there was in the picture when to the human eye it was mainly black. This is one of the pictures:

While there's a fair bit of noticeable noise it's still incredible that so much can be seen as this was at around 11am when all you could see were the head torches, fireworks and the sunhouse lighting.
