The Gallary – My Current Favorite Photo

I love lots of photo’s and favorite choice changes with my mood, the time of day and well the month, year and all that jazz too. At the moment my favorite photo is not one I took, but one that Mrs W from Clinically fed Up took when we were at The Mad Awards.  I love it because it captures the whirlwinds that are my boys. Then I have my second favorite one, why well this is because it captures all of us Mads, happy laughing and generally having fun. And you see that is the beauty of an image, it is a snap shot, a trigger of a memory, a more »


The Gallery – A photo I am Proud Off

Oh my I can not get that “What have you done today to make you feel proud” out of my head.  This week I am supposed to show you an image I have taken that makes me feel proud.  I am not a professional photographer or even an amateur really.  I am a snapper.  I capture moments of our everyday lives to trigger wonderful memories. This image was snapped with my now defunct original Olympus digital camera, the first digital I owned, which was the size of a house brick and I love it. It captures a wonderful day, the first time we went out of the house as a family more »


The Photo Lottery

This is the tenth one and not all that stunning in its imagery, but as a part of modern history it is just beyond my comprehension.For this is the more »


The Past in Pictures

Once I started scanning in pictures, well I couldn’t stop and I have asked my mum of I can have the family tin, which is a box full of wonderful pictures and things from our family history.   Look at those side burns, this is me and my wonderful dad.  I still have the rabbit, well mini has claimed it and my mum still lives in the same house, although she doesn’t have the bar or the wonderful mural on the wall in the sitting room. This is me and my wonderful paternal Grandad who lived with us.  I was his reason for living.  He suffered from cancer before I was more »


The Gallery – Beauty

Tara at Sticky fingers has introduced The Gallery designed to showcase all the amazing photographs she sees dotted around the bloggisphere. And the first ‘theme’ she chose was beauty. I have chosen to showcase two photographs and explain why they sit the bill for me.  Firstly a photograph I took during the recent snow we have had.  I love snow, it makes the whole world seem clean and sparkly and it also can make the most mundane things dance.  This is a photo of some mint in the garden, which I cut down over the autumn. Isn’t it amazing how the snow turns it in to a thing of beauty.   more »
