im·pro·vise - verb \ˈim-prə-ˌvīz also ˌim-prə-ˈ\

Today was raining, no sun, no respite from the storm...and yet my challenge today was a "Sunset". So I present you a Sunset, albeit one that I shot originally some years ago and this is a photograph of the canvas of a sunset. So its an original photograph of an original photograph...work with me people

Day 11 (of 30) Photography Challenge - Something Blue

Meet Kitchen Window Blue Buddha. Now he is called that as he is one of two Buddha's in our kitchen and one of many many many Buddha's in our house. Not to be mistaken for Buddhist's, but a certain person has a penchant for Buddha statues. You will be lucky in our house to sit on the pot without being watched by Buddha....

Day 10 (of 30) Photography Challenge - Childhood Memory

It's 1984, Sony have just released their Sony Walkman WM-F35, a floating waterproof portable tape deck ! And who can forget the ubiquitous TDK-90 cassette tape, ideal for one album per side. And lastly, slide film, extra points if you can tell me what's on the slide...

Day 9 (of 30) Photography Challenge - Someone you Love

Juleiga - She is my partner, my confidante, my best friend, my soul mate, my lover, my rock, my biggest fan, my believer in me, my driving force. What can I say....words don't do her justice and she will no doubt say that this picture also does not do the same, but with a sunday morning and a sleepy subject this is what we produced

Day 8 (of 30) Photography Challenge - Routine

My routine has remained the same for years and starts in the morning with strong black italian blend coffee and my dose of the worlds' news, my email and social media. Taken, ideally on the deck, watching the sun rise and to the sounds of the dawn chorus.

Day 6 (of 30) Photography Challenge - Obsession31

I try and avoid them, but they always put them in the store by the checkout, so you are waiting, trying not to look at them, and then you wait some more and you resolve crumbles and you end up buying a pack...or two...

Day 5 (of 30) Photography Challenge - After Dark

Considered the full moon tonight, but that was just too obvious, may post later though - for now this is my "after dark light trails", courtesy of my fairy lights in my garden and a very slow shutter. One could call it 'abstract'.

Day 3 (of 30) Photography Challenge - Clouds.

I think today was the clearest day in weeks without a puff of a cloud in sight...but I found one to photograph....and I could just reach out and touch it...

Day 2 (of 30) Photography Challenge - What You Wore

My Camper's are about 15 years old have some serious mileage - yet they are still going strong. I think they are still as iconic today as they were when I first bought them in Covent Garden. Slightly worn but nothing a lick of polish cant help What I wore today !

Day 1 of 30 - The Photography Challenge - The Selfie - The Photographer Exposed
