Talent town? #BlackCountry

I have talent on my mind this morning. Today’s picture is my great niece Megan who will be on The Voice (BBC One) this evening. The programme has already been recorded and so I think she did well. This photo was taken at The Vine in Darlaston, but she has also sung at The Black Horse and Horse and Jockey in Wednesbury so I hope they remember her. (more…)


Taking photos at Christmas #photography

PANTO WEDNESBURY (14)

You will probably be taking photos this Christmas and it can be tricky when we have low light and we only have one chance to get some decent pictures. (more…)


Santa on social media #Christmas

DSC_0217 (Copy)

This week I’ve photographed a Christmas lunch for the elderly and when Santa’s sleigh passed by my house, I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures. The pictures of both events went out quickly on Facebook and helped promote the events. It raised awareness so people feel like it’s Christmas. It has added to all the other Christmas promotions too.

Imagine an image #ramble

I write a lot and post images of the town I live in and the Black Country. I try to promote the area in a positive way. I know it’s shallow just to judge people and places by the way they look, but that is what many people do. First impressions are important as young people going out looking for a job know. (more…)


Images and stories

THOW

I designed a new banner for our Facebook history page this morning. Social media is all about engaging with members or fans and keeping interest alive. It’s the same if you run a community group or a small business. (more…)


Creating images

I designed this advertisement for a charity fun day event and tried to give it a fun look. Image is important for events, places and people. Even this website has an image and I try to make it colourful. (more…)


Tipton Canal boat gathering #photography

TIPTON BOATS AND CANAL (148)

The weather finally improved at Easter for a narrow-boat gathering at Easter. It was still cloudy which gave poor light, but I raised the ISO on my camera and took lots of pictures. It’s a good idea to use a wide aperture and get quite close with narrow-boats. (more…)


Disruptive – change for the better?

 The Midland Metro Tram line - disruptive?

Some technological changes disrupt what has gone before. My picture today is of the Midland Metro tram line, which is one of the latest ideas in travel. It looks very modern, but is really an old idea modernised; rather than disruptive. (more…)


Life: diversity

Do you remember Christmas when you were a kid? I still remember the things associated with Christmas. We had tangerines at Christmas, now it’s satumas. Whatever happened to tangerines? We had nativities at school and we learnt Christmas carols. Childhood is about learning, the knowledge we gain  is the foundation of our lives. (more…)


Photography: Charity Bike Ride

The Frying Pan Charity Bike Ride

I photographed the charity bike ride from the Frying Pan in Darlaston to Bridgnorth. That’s quite a way, I did that ride when I was a lot younger! In this picture you can see it was very sunny, which gave a lot of long shadows. (more…)


Neodigital Art: Editing for Art

1- WEST BROM Library edit 1

When the weather is bad, I stay in and edit my images to produce something artistic. Last week I took this photo in the sunshine and this week I tried some different editing. Editing in PhotoScape isn’t difficult, but you learn how different things work with experience.

In search of recognition

Church in sepia

Yesterday I offered readers the opportunity to write for a Zillion Ideas. Most aspiring writers want some recognition. It’s not just writers that need people to pay attention to what they do, but all artists. Whatever we do, whether it’s performing, art or painting pictures with words, we all want recognition.

Engaging social media

Social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn have become an important part of people’s lives. The profiles on these sites are like your front garden, they say something about you. LinkedIn is like the office and having a professional looking profile sends out a message to others about your professionalism. Your Facebook Timeline also says a lot about you. You should be careful what you post there.

Writers, artists and photographers

If you are being creative either as a writer, artist or photographer, you want people to see what you do. Many of my friends are writers and trying to get people to buy your novel is about making a name for yourself. People buy books for many reasons. They like the look of the cover or the blurb on the back sounds good. The most important reason people buy a book though is they have heard of the author. So many of my friends are trying to make a name for themselves and what better way than on the internet? (more…)


International Friends

Sunday afternoon photography

I took this photograph yesterday afternoon, we tend to go out on a Sunday because the roads are quiet; in theory. Yesterday, I got caught in a traffic jam and again trying to come back because of road works. I can share this information using my blogs and when I got back yesterday, I edited the photos and shared the best on Facebook with friends around the world. To make friends on an international scale you do have to find common interests. (more…)
