A few images for your viewing. The first was a fake holiday advert I made a little while ago after going camping at Port Eyenon on the Gower coast, it's actually quiet a nice place to go camping.

The other image was this month's entry into our in-house competition, the theme (chosen by last months winner ME!) was time, by the way I'm still waiting for the prize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having the children home with half term holidays means not much time to go snapping, or indeed to go out at all. The nearest I got was trying to start my car (in the rain of course) sadly it wasn't having any of that starting nonsense, but luckily a few of my mates managed to get it going the next day, and got it to the garage.

I have been a busy little bee the last few days, I helped set up a shoot on Thusday for a friends daughter to practice her photographic skills. Yesterday I was dashing about shopping in the day time followed by an evening out clubbing! (and wine bar visiting), got home fairly late for me.

Todays been a lot quieter, catching up on the housework (Arrgggg!!! where did all the washing come from???) and making a nice steak dinner, suppers going to be a Chinese meal I think, I'm in the mood for a curry.

Heres an image for today, some of you will have heard of the Lens baby but if you haven't check out the link above. This is my first version. Wayne

Finished taking photos of the puppies today, and comping the photos together to put all eleven in one shot. The adults were a little easier than the puppies, I'm glad to say.

Also been shopping and been up the Attic looking for some old photographic bit's and bobs.

Todays image a rose from the garden shows how the out of focus highlights go to doughnuts when shot with a mirror lens (catadioptric lens) here an 800mm equivilent. Wayne

Last night my mate turned up out of the blue, he needed someone for a difficult and dangerous mission!.... well to help him fit a new clutch cable on his car. It was dangerous, I could have tripped over the tool bag or got a scratch or something!! lol

Nice to see him all the same, we don't get much chance for a chat these days.

Todays image is something a little different, I suspect you'll either love it or hate it (I can't make up my mind LOL) Wayne

Another few interesting days, busy with photoshop again, lots of images to sort out!

Today I took my youngest son shoe shopping, he's pretty good really, only takes a few minutes to find a pair he likes, then were sorted!

Heres a couple of images for your veiwing, both taken near Whitford point in the Gower coast, the lighthouse I believe is the last cast iron one left in the country (so I'm told) Wayne

Another image from yesterdays outing, make of it what you will!! Wayne

It's been a couple of days since the last post, I have been pretty busy (as usual) lots of stuff going on in my life at the moment.

Here's a couple of shots from today, ones taken in a house in Margam country park, the others taken in my neighbours house, it's her puppies. They should be nine, but a two kept escaping, so we are left with the severn for the shot! LOL. Enjoy. Wayne

Something different today... something very different in fact!

Heres some of my "early" work with photoshop, I went through a sort of abstract period... maybe abstract isn't quite the right word, odd is probably a better one, I did get a bit carried away sometimes. Wayne

Heres another shot from Andrew, this one is the pic that got him second place in the freedom competition, it's children jumping off a pier side into the sea.

From me it's the last of my favorite Tanya shots from Saturdays shoot, a true Hi-key shot.

The weathers been a bit grim here today, misty and showers, hopefully the weekend will be better.

Interesting day today, I had a few jobs to do around the house, then I went out with a friend for a run in the car, that turned out fairly promising (can't say more), then my mate and his girlfriend came over this evening for a nice chat.

Heres a pic he's sent me of his car, it's a Polo, all modded and lowered, he's actually done a really good job of it. (he's given me permission to post it here)

Thanks Andrew. Wayne

It's been a wonderfull warm sunny day here today, really smashing! One of my sons went swiming, the other came out with me for a walk.

Heres todays image, another special effect, it's similar to posterization, but in fact it's done with Adobe photoshop and Illustrator. Wayne

Tanya photo

Had a pretty good weekend, Saturday I did a model shoot during the day, and in the evening we had a supprise birthday party for one of my mates, a really good laugh, and as much as you could eat. Good fun and good company made it a great evening!.

Heres one of the photos I took on Saturday, it's my Neighbours daughter (15) I was after a 1940's film noir sort of effect, I have to admit I really like the finished effect.
