Bohemian socialites

 

Bohemian gypsy or socialite copycat?

I put a few vintage photographs on the Facebook page yesterday and fans of the page liked them. The photographs were of gypsies who inspired the Bohemian culture that swept Europe in the early 20th century. (more…)


Open day in West Bromwich #photography

Great Barr Photographic society open day

Open day

I went to the open day of Great Barr Photographic Society on Sunday and got to look at their studio equipment. I even ended up on the other side of the camera and had a portrait  photo taken which I’ve used on the home page. An open day is a good time to visit but they also have an exhibition in May. The exhibition will take place on 19th May 2016 and will be held at their club room from 7.30 pm at Gayton Road community centre. (more…)


Zoom with two fingers? #ramble

2 fingers to zoom

I have figured out the way zoom on my touchpad works in Windows 10. Yes, us computer users have to start learning the smartphone actions. It could help me learn how to use the zoom on a smartphone, I suppose… (more…)


Can photo-blogging improve a community?

I went to a creative meeting last week and on the way home noticed there were no cars parked outside the Black Horse and took the opportunity to photograph it at night. Lots of pubs have closed down in the Black Country but this one is doing well because it’s run well. (more…)


Community blogger and photographer

SUNDAY 13 MAR 2016 (8)

Over the past few years I have slowly become a community blogger and photographer and since starting a Facebook page for A Zillion Ideas, I have been taking it more seriously. I’m now sharing art and music via Facebook as well as words and photographs. I am now asked to write for the community and organisations ask to use my photographs. (more…)


Monday Monday #life

Yes, it is Monday morning and I really don’t feel like doing very much. I imagine there are millions more like me, but we all make the effort. I’m going to rely on my photography today to get me out of trouble. (more…)


One Love Photo Challenge #photography

BANDSTAND IN BRUNSWICK PARK, WEDNESBURY

One love refers to the universal love and respect expressed by all people for all people, regardless of race, creed, or colour. Does it? People say they love all sorts of things these days and that includes all kinds of animals, food, celebrities and anything else they are obsessed with. (more…)


Waiting for spring. #photography

AROUND TIPTON 28 FEB 16 (1)

Finding nice landscapes in the Black Country is a challenge at the best of times but harder in winter. It will soon be spring with better light and spring flowers. Industry can provide some interesting scenes and shouldn’t be ignored. This scene has actually changed from the first time I saw it. (more…)


Toot your horn #life

Manor Hospital

This is the hospital where I go, a couple of times a year. I’ve had a lot of ill health and people can judge you unkindly if they can’t see what is wrong with you. So I think my greatest attribute is being non-judgemental. (more…)


Composing your winter picture #photography

BLACK COUNTRY (45)

I have to admit that I don’t spend enough time composing my pictures, but I do look for diagonal lines and anything that will give the image perspective. Photographing landscapes in winter is difficult with the poorer light but we can still get images with a cold winter look. (more…)


Symbols of status #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so this must be my Sunday ramble when I let you into a more mysterious area of my mind and ramble on. What am I thinking about this week? The daffodil should give you a clue… (more…)


Looking forward… #life

BRUNSWICK PARK

I read something this morning to the effect that you spend much of your life working and so you should try to find something that you enjoy. Not everyone has a vocation so I think you have to be lucky to do what you really want to do. Underneath that edict, someone commented that you spend much of your life asleep and should therefore, buy a good bed. (more…)


Be like Mike #ramble

be like Mike

This is the latest Facebook craze. The ‘be like’ cards. I did my own, rather than have one made up for me. I do what I like… (more…)


Coping with winter light #photography

WEDNESBURY TOWN HALL BUILDINGS (6)

I find taking photographs outdoors in winter quite challenging. This building was a Victorian science school. The old sign is covered with the later ‘Adult Education Centre’ sign. The building will soon be demolished and so I took a photograph to record it as part of our history. (more…)


Thinking about the weather #ramble

On a Sunday, I ramble on about whatever is on my mind. Today, it’s the weather amongst other things. We might have a little snow later this week. It’s cold this morning so I might have to sort out my Arctic gear! (more…)


Editing your Christmas pictures #photography

PANTO WEDNESBURY (7)

If you took some photos over Christmas and they aren’t what you were expecting then you might be able to improve them with editing. I use Windows Live Gallery and that is good for basic editing, such as making a picture lighter or adding contrast. This picture is quite good. (more…)


Look to the future #ramble

UNE VIE NOUVELLE (2)

I photographed this little shop just before Christmas. It’s called Une Vie Nouvelle. Many small businesses are struggling to compete with the big multinationals and so a bit of free publicity is a big help.  They do French and country inspired interiors which are in vogue right now. (more…)


Reflecting on the past and looking to the future

AUTUMN COLOURS (48) (Copy)

Christmas isn’t over yet and I’m thinking about the new year. I will be doing more photography and trying to promote events and capture memories. I shall go back to taking landscapes too. This one was a misty autumn day, but it is a shot I intended to take for a while. I like to go back when the weather is different and take shots again. (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…)


Photos in the community #photography

ST BARTS CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL (25)

I went to photograph my local church yesterday. It sits high on a hill overlooking my house. It was the Christmas tree festival, so schools and organisations within the community had decorated Christmas trees for the event. You can see more of those photos on my Facebook Page. (more…)


Christmas lights photo shoot #photography

1 Wednesbury Christmas Lights 2014 snow

I photographed two Christmas lights switch-ons last year and I have this year’s to think about now. I’ve bought a new Speedlight for Friday’s event and I’ve been practicing. Preparation is quite important with all events. (more…)


Preparing for winter weather #snow

Snow in Wednesbury

We had our first sprinkling of snow yesterday. That was a timely reminder that we need to prepare for winter. Local councils and government should be preparing too. We have a terrorist alert after the events in Paris. I don’t think they will be able to brave the cold like us. Snow? Bring it on! (more…)


Random colours #photography

Tipton in Autumn

Autumn gives me a variation of colours to photograph, but after a while I want something different. A subject that will look good with the autumn colours as the backdrop. It’s the same with sunsets, they are great for a backdrop but not as the subject of the photograph. (more…)


Dusty pathways #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so as usual I’ll let you into the dusty pathways of my mind and just write about whatever I find there! For most of my life I have felt misunderstood, I think everyone does at some time… (more…)
