Owl are you? An owl from Jambs Owls

Owl are you? An owl from Jambs Owls

Owl photographed at Jamb's Owls

Photograph of an owl taken at Hall Place in Bexley – Powder Paint Effect without Box Outline

Saturday was the first time in ages that I have been out and our little trip took us to Hall Place.  Anyway as we were leaving we saw a sign for Jambs Owls and decided to pay a visit.  Believe it or not the above photograph of this owl straight out of the camera was bland and boring even after cropping.

A photograph of a vibrant orange and purple flower in the Greenhouse at Hall Place in Bexley

Saturday was so lovely being able to walk without excruciating pain and being able to visit places and above all being able to hold my camera and take photographs.  The flowers in the greenhouse of Hall Place in Bexley are exquisite to photograph.  Hubby took the above photograph of this beautiful orange and purple flower.  I couldn’t believe how large the blooms were.

Falling leaves but I’m still hanging on

Falling leaves but I’m still hanging on

As the winter of 2016 descended on us.. a bare leaf hanging on a branch

 

I am a leaf on this dear tree,
Hanging on, not wanting to be free,
Remembering days when I was just a bud,
Praying I don't fall in the mud.

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

Wooden Bridge

Wooden bridge that spans the River Coe at Glencoe in Scotland.

Looking back over previous photo challenges that WordPress curates and I found one called Path. A path comes in many shapes and forms, like the image above. Which is of a wooden bridge.  A path is made by using different materials that enable a person to walk across an area with ease.  It could be concrete, decking, timber planks, paving slabs or even shingle.  A path will lead you from one place to another.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Wish – Wishing for warmer weather

Wishing for spring and summer days

Wishing of summer days, with a pastel Powder Paint Effect of flowers taken at Belmont House and Gardens

Another week and another photography challenge from the WordPress Team.  And the topic for this week’s challenge is called Wish.  And boy am I wishing for spring and summer to arrive early.  Last year for me was to put it bluntly horrendous.  What with not being able to go out and about.

The week gone by and one step closer

The week gone by and one step closer

Flower of the Week

A photograph of a purple flower taken at Great Comp Gardens with Powder Paint Effect

Slowly and surely I am getting more and more mobile.  And I am counting down the days until the 20th March when I see my consultant and I hope on that particular day he says I can remove these awful surgical stockings and that I am fit enough to drive.  Being copped up is doing my head in to be honest.  With just over one week to go before seeing him, I know these final few days are going to drag.

WPC – On The Road – Roadside at Loch Lomond

WPC – On The Road – Roadside at Loch Lomond

On the roadside - Loch Lomond

A photograph of Loch Lomond taken at Inveruglas in Scotland, processed with a Powder Paint Effect

Our holiday last year to Scotland was a little marred by my hip pain and lack of mobility.  I would have loved to walk the Highlands and go off the beaten track a little, just to photograph the amazing scenery.  But unfortunately that was not to be so most of the photos I took were in fact taken by the roadside. And for the WordPress photo challenge called The Road Taken, for me this was a perfect example of a photograph being taken on the road.

Using Adobe’s Photoshop Mix App with Lightroom Mobile

Using Adobe’s Photoshop Mix App with Lightroom Mobile

For just under £10 a month, I subscribe to the Creative Cloud and Lightroom Photography Package and personally for me, it suits my needs as I get both Lightroom and Photoshop.  However Lightroom Mobile is another thing.  I do wish Adobe would give Android users the same features that are available to iPad and iPhone users.  Android users can’t do local adjustments which is rather annoying.  I keep moaning and I keep being told it is in the pipeline.  But all I can say it must be a friggin big pipeline. 😀 😀

However, I do get to use some of the Apps available as well as Lightroom Mobile and one App I am using quite regular is Photoshop Mix.  By using images from Lightroom Mobile and combining them in Photoshop Mix I can create artwork in layers.  There are adjustments you can do and blending modes in Photoshop Mix as well as in Lightroom.
