315-365v4 Self Love

For the most part people are not curious except about themselves.” ― John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent Continuing playing with the scanner and (hopefully) moving beyond the photocopying your arse on the office photocopier stage! I quite enjoyed exploring the “art” of the selfie on the scanner. I don’t do

314-365v4 – Scanography

I’m still not really in the best photographic frame of mind, but did enjoy this new technique (to me anyway) of producing images. It’s not at all complicated, open up your scanner in a darkened room and scan 3d objects to make an image. I took my three favourite shots

Rebellion Festival 2021

310 to 313 – 365v4 , The Catch Up Edition

So, I’ve been very lazy with the 365 this week. I’ve really not felt enthused about it at all, but, importantly I have taken photos (maybe not very interesting photos admittedly) each day…and here they are. 310 – 365v4 – Rebellion My brother and I go to the Rebellion Festival

309-365v4 My Penknife

306-365v4 Heading Into Autumn

I’ve been a day behind publishing these photos all week so today you get two shots for the price of one as a bit of a catch up. We visited Rowney Woods yesterday and had a lovely autumnal walk. I took 11 photographs none of which satisfied me…still, at least

Four Candles / Fork Handles!

305-365v4 Four Candles

I decided I’d have a go at illustrating the classic Two Ronnies sketch “Four Candles” (which you can see below). Ironically I had completely forgotten that the part of the gag that I’ve illustrated was the misunderstanding that the customer wanted fork handles, not four candles, however, the fork handles

304-365v4 The Twilight Zone – Black and White Unite XXIX

This was quite fun, using the defraction of an image in a water bubble to produce this shot. It only took 102 shots to get that just about central! Should have got the tripod out instead of doing it handheld. There’s a second version below that is a bit more
