Photo a Day Year Seven

I have been working on a photo-a -day project for seven years now – that’s 2548 pictures posted to date. I post the pictures weekly on my Facebook page and, intermittently, here and on Flickr.

My only rule is that I take at least one picture a day – no cheating. Sometimes I have a theme – owl of the week – sometimes I’ll have a weekly theme. This year Spock and Kirk have featured heavily in honour of Star Trek’s 50th birthday (and mine).

As has also become a tradition, at the end of the year I make a mosaic of all 364 pictures.

Nature photos 2015

Twelve nature photos I took this year. What with the weather, work and life generally I haven’t taken as many photos as I did in the last few years. I bought a second-hand 400mm lens a few months ago, but I haven’t had the chance to take it out yet. And I finally got my 24-105mm fixed after it broke when I was in France in summer 2014. So here’s hoping 2016 will be a good year for nature and wildlife.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I often rescue dolls and figures from charity shops. This is a 2014 Disney (Tangled) Rapunzel bought for £1. Her hair was in a state but otherwise she was in great shape.
