Lovely shots, James and yours show your imaginative side, Fairygirl.....well done both.

I've been out & about snapping locally today, so hope to have something worth sharing, when I've downloaded them & sorted through them.

I'm looking forward to this series too......perhaps we can discuss it here, week by week.

That's interesting to know, John. I too come from a generation where we developed our own film & printed our own prints...I remember once being the proud owner of, first an Agfa, then a Gnome enlarger.

I think my first camera was an Ensign- Ful Vue Super, that was when I was about 15 years old.

Maybe digital cameras have spoiled the art of photography to some extent, being able to take hundreds of shots & being able to delete those that don't reach expectations.

From a cost point of view, we had to take more care over composition and choice of film speed......or am I just getting old??

Very nice, Dove...just like being along with you.

Enjoy your new camera, my previous one was a Fuji S4500 and many of the shots I have posted here were taken with it. You'll be  able to have fun with macro & super macro settings.

PS. Took this with my Fuji S4500:

Fantastic picture David M - it's amazing what you can find if you crawl around on the ground.

 

I agree, Forester....... a more apt description, than my 'nice' pic.

Sorry, David M.

Nice pic, David M and thank you for your kind comment.

Things were a little quiet here over the weekend, but apart from peeps having other stuff to be getting on with, I suppose they must have used-up most of their pics by now.

I must try to get snapping myself soon. I always feel that just after daybreak & about an hour before sunset are the best times for outdoor shots. I like fishing, which offers some good opportunities. 

I have a plan to take an indoor shot, involving mirrors....when I get around to it.

A real shock for my camellia 'Water lily'.

Btw, it's small cos I cropped it.

That's rather unusual, Forester. It seems the fern spoors have taken root in the moss on the branch......makes a great pic though.

Another great autumn shot too!

Not sure if any of you watched tonight's Countryfile, it came from Cannock Chase here in Staffordshire where I live. 

Many of the pics I've posted here were taken there and although it may not compare to The Dales, The Peaks or The Lakes.....I feel privileged to call it home.
