Photo365 - 314 - Rivelin Valley

Will Cheung had today off and asked if I wanted to go taking photos. So I booked the day off too and suggested we went over to Riverlin Valley as I knew the leaves would be fresh on the ground and the river has some interesting areas.

Photo365 - 313 - Yes

Will Cheung emailed this morning to say he'd been to see Yes last night, and that they were playing Sheffield. I looked them up and realised the gig was tonight. So I quickly ordered a ticket, centre position in the Circle at the Sheffield City Hall

Photo365 - 312 - I want to be an astronaut...

...or a stupid idea to see what happens inside a washing machine with a fisheye lens. Good fun trying A to get in, B to operate the camera phone, C to get the light in the right place and D to find the right angle. I quite like this one.

Photo365 - 309 - worst gig ever?

Went to Lincoln Tokyo last night for what I thought was going to be a Katy B gig with her on stage at 10:30. It was a club night...banging DJ so the sound was great but I was amongst hundreds of young revellers and felt slightly out of place.

Photo365 - 308 - I found gold

Inspired by a fellow ePHOTOzine blogger, Stewart (bfgstew) I decide to get my British made BPM bellows out and connect them to my Olympus Pen EP2 via a T2 /micro 4 thirds adaptor , and mounted a Pentax 50mm f/1.4 on the front.

Photo365 - 307 - honesty pod

This honesty seed pod is looking a little worse for wear and I'm surprised it's not split and scattered its seeds yet. Photographed in summer they are a lush green - backlighting still works now and creates an interesting glowing effect.

Photo365 - 306 - renovation

I bought an old cupboard to paint black & white and use as a camera equipment storage unit, as I have stuff all over the place. I'm currently preparing the surface for the paint job. Taken with Hipstamatic on the iphone
