I took this one, along with a good handful more, on a private beach near Lyme Regis. The fossils down there are amazing, but gettig harder and harder to find as they get hunted down and taken home by holiday makers 🙁

Striped Leaves

This week’s BlogPaper is the only one, so far, that I’ve altered digitally other than to crop and resize. This was taken in low light with a fast film speed so ended up grainy. I did a simple motion blur ,totally vertical, to blur the grain into vertical stripes.

Anyway, Striped Leaves is below.

Red Arrows Corkscrew

A few weeks ago I took my boy and a friend, Jake, to Cosford airshow. The cameras went with us and this photo of The Red Arrows Corkscrew was taken by Jake.

Paper your screen, Blue Timber

I’ve been taking photos since I was little. I started with my Dad’s camera and my first photo was a great holiday snap in which our family dog, Honey, takes centre-stage and my dad appears alongside her in full 70s kodacolor… less his head.

My technique has improved little since then, but with advent of cameras smarter than I am and, more recently, affordable digital SLRs my luck has changed a little. My camera allows me to take several hundred photos on a card, virtually cost free, So I’m now able to apply the monkeys & typewriters approach.

Anyway, a few of my shots have come out quite nicely so I’m doing two things. Firstly I’m going to post one of my shots, sized to common desktop resolutions, to my blog every so often as I get a moment. Secondly, I’m going to invite everyone else to do the same and to add the phrase [grid::blogpaper] so we can all google for the grid.
