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. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
Finally life is getting back to some normality… and this weekend has been one of the best weekends in ages. You see I am back out and about with my camera. Still having to take things easy has meant my camera has sat in the bag and not seen the light of day for weeks.
This weekend has been filled with mixed emotions for me. What with clearing my mum’s home and being able to get for the first time in ages with my camera. It has meant a lot of highs and lows over the last 48 hours. Continue reading →
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.
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. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
Lately I have found myself using Instagram a lot more to showcase our photographs. Using the Lightroom plugin you can easily export your images to this social network along with the image Title, Caption and Keywords. Continue reading →
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.
