Photograph of the Week #0041

"When not scribbling away in a sketch book or dabbling on a Wacom tablet i'm invariably fiddling around with exposure settings on my Nikon D90 trying to capture moments in aesthetically pleasing ways.
So here we have "Photograph of the week"

This weeks photo is of our pet cat, Eccles, whilst he lounged on a seat in the garden. I was trying to take advantage of the fact and get some close-ups of his eyes but the light was tremendously uneven.

I've been meaning to do this for a long time. It's a very basic photograph and more a snapshot really. Nothing special in the exposure or anything but i've just been meaning to get a shot of this sign.

It sits on the side of a cycle/footpath, as you might imagine, beside a bay that I walk around every lunch time to get some much needed exercise/fresh-air.

There is something a little unusual about the sign though, took me months to notice it, mostly because I wasn't paying attention to it but still, I don't imagine it will take anyone viewing this image long to notice what I didn't.

Scribble of the Week #008

My sketch books are forever filled with random mind-scrawlings and scribbles that will otherwise never be used for anything or be seen by anyone, because of this I bring you "Scribble of the week".

Scribble of the week is a weekly feature(on and off probably) where i'll be posting a random sketch, scribble, design or element from one of my various sketch books. These will always be unfinished pieces of work and will often, most likely, be very random.


I'm not too good at keeping up to date with my Scribbles of the week in comparison to my photos but that does not mean i'm not scribbling. I'll try to get more on the ball in the coming weeks but no promises. :)

For now though, my current work-in-progress is actually an extension of a previous post. This is apiece of art depicting my boy and his awesome mount and travelling companion the Alphabetepillar.

As always with these pieces it's very much a work-in-progress. The background is miles off and more shading/highlighting/details and such needs to be done with a splash more colour but still.

Yet another quick macro shot, this time taken of a fly in my garden that landed on a large, green, plastic, riding-dog toy that my son got last christmas. It was only there long enough for the one shot which is my excuse for not adjusting my aperture to give a better depth of field.
