Took lots of pictures during our second visit to Florence. I try not to take purely straightforward tourist pics if I can avoid it. I was quite pleased with this picture looking up the Campanile (the bell tower of the cathedral).
I think the Flickr set I’ve uploaded really captures the essence of the trip.
Took lots of pictures in Kephalonia, including getting up really early to photograph a sunrise!
Posted many of them to Flickr. I was particularly pleased with the one above that was taken in the amazing light of early morning in Greece.
I’m quite encouraged by the response from the “Flickr Community” to my recent photos. I think I might be starting to get somewhere!
I’d really encourage anyone trying to improve their photography to check out http://flickr.com/ !
Just returned from Rome where I took around 120 pictures with my little compact digital Kodak camera (The best of these are on http://flickr.com/photos/sonofgroucho/sets/220637/ ). I’m quite pleased with several of them, and the ability to see instantly what the image is like is so useful.
The challenge is to continue to take interesting pictures in slightly less exciting locations!
Continuing to take lots of pictures with my little Kodak digital camera. I really like the look of the newly launchedCanon EOS 350D digital SLR and I’d like to get a digital SLR for my 50th birthday next year. However, at around £800-£1000 I feel I need to prove my interest in photography is enough to justify the expenditure!
Posted another morning sky photograph on Flickr: this time looking over the Carman Reservoir on the way to work (http://photos2.flickr.com/3870205_939a03a11c.jpg ). I’ve seen lots of beautiful skies on this journey, but this time I had the camera with me.
Took a picture this morning with my new digital camera. It was actually taken in my garden (see http://photos2.flickr.com/3691306_8bdd259a9b.jpg ), but the idea of getting a compact camera is so that I can carry it about with me easily. I’m quite pleased with the result!
I was quite interested in photography many years ago. The advent of digital cameras, and the ease of manipulating images on a computer, has stimulated my renewed interest in the subject.
I’ve also become interested in blogging (see http://tvor.blogspot.com ), and find that adding images to the blog makes it look more interesting.
Finally, I’ve discovered Flickr (see http://flickr.com/photos/sonofgroucho/ ), and this has been a great source of inspiration.
