#DAILYPHOTO : iPhone 3GS


This morning on my little wander I found that I had left the battery for my camera at home… in the charger… So feeling like a right twit with a massive useless DSLR lump around my neck, I thought I’d try taking a photo on my Smartphone.

I HATE Smartphone photos.

Especially when people submit them to the magazine I work on.

It goes against the grain that I’ve had to resort to this.

Today is very dull, dark and depressing. All the things that go against taking a landscape photo. Well lets say I tried…

I decided to take a photo of the bypass around our village and by chance there was a “Convoi Exceptionelle” passing. Unfortunately the screen on my phone can’t be seen very well in daylight, so it was really hope for the best and see what happened.

As it is, pointless using the zoom and due to the low light it is usually hard to get a sharpish image. Added to which the low resolution. All the things that make me despise photos taken with any sort of Smartphone.

So, once I arrived home, I cheated… and mucked about in Photoshop with the photo… Sorry, I couldn’t resist a little tinker…

#DAILYPHOTO : First snow of 2015


After a weekend of birthday celebrations – I’ve woken up with a gastro and snow…


Currently waiting for Marco the plumber to turn up, he has been so busy that our bathroom hasn’t been touched in over a week…

#DAILYPHOTO: After a long day, a nice sight…


Been a long day typesetting the village magazine, so lovely to finally relax with this lovely sunset viewed from my sons bedroom window.

#DAILYPHOTO: The local park


On our Fathers Day walk, we passed the park down the road from us…

#DAILYPHOTO: Grim day…


Grim skies… grim day… but at least it is warm.

This is our village mairie (village hall).

#DAILYPHOTO: A strange sort of bouncy tractor-bus…


Today we visited a local yearly event known as “La Locomotion en Fete”.

Lots of old vehicles are gathered together and… we get to take some strange transport for a ride around the site.

On this occasion we took the second of the two tractor buses you can see here in this photo.

The field where the event was held was very muddy – we were bounced around like corks as we went around on the “bus”…

#DAILYPHOTO: Evening leaves…


A short magical time in the evening when the sun catches the leaves in our garden, before the golden light disappears moments later…

#DAILYPHOTO: Bless my (Kia) Soul!


Nah… not mine…

While doing the garden this afternoon, this Kia car got my attention… So

I took a sneaky shot over our garden wall…

#DAILYPHOTO: Lego Hogwarts Express


This afternoon we headed over to Mennecy, to a Lego exhibition taking place for the whole of this weekend. The theme was Lego “City”, but there were a few Star Wars & Harry Potter themed displays on the side.

Thought I’d wait for the train when taking this shot, of what is perhaps supposed to be the Ford Anglia… I think… Loved the set up there, just don’t know an awful lot about Harry Potter…
