Monday, April 26


I wasn't sure what to blog about today. Nothing overly exciting has happened. I'm still mid fibro-flare and have very little energy for anything that involves strength. I really want to move my daughter's bedroom around as we're having going to bed problems, but there is no way I can lug wardrobes and drawers around, so that will have to wait. The weather is a bit dubious, with nice big billowing grey clouds which look like they may empty at any moment, so I'm staying in. I do have to decide which three printed photographs and three digital images I need to submit for the camera club competition (final round) tonight, which is Print of the Year and Digtitally Projected Image of the year, and I just can't decide which ones to go with. For the prints, this is my shortlist, but I need to elimnate one of them (click any of the images to view them full size): L-R - Gloomy Mill, Wooly Coo, Gizza Kiss, Trio of Tulips

Then for the digitally projected images (projected onto a large screen) this is my shortlist. (the bald eagle is definately going in, this is one of my most successful shots to date), but I need to eliminate two.

arghhhhh! I'm so indecisive (and competetive). Whatever I enter in each category will be up against everyone elses best shots, and despite me telling myself I'm not competetive.. I am. I have been quite successfull in the camera club competitions so far and points from these images entered will also count towards the Photographer of the Year competition. I don't know where I stand at the moment, but it is towards the top in the overall standings, and there's trophy's to be won!!

I'm not a natural born winner, and I'm don't particularly excell in anything, but I do have a passion for photography and results are proving that I'm not bad at it really, so to win a trophy for something I absolutely love and is purely me and my camera, no one else helps to get the results, it's all me... would be a bit achievement in my mind.

So, decisions decisions! I have until about 6.30pm tonight to decide which to go with. Help??

    Oh I dont know which shots, I love them all, infact the daisy one would look great on a card. I love your images and they always really shine for me

  2. Hi Annie! I was the lucky recipient of your lovely secret post club package and I am so sorry it has taken me a week to drop by and say a proper thank-you!! I just loved my cherub, he will be going on the wall in my newly tidied garden, where I can see him from my kitchen window. So clever! Thanks also for the other thoughful little presents.
    Your photos are amazing! I would be rubbish at eliminating any of them, but my absolute favourites are the monkeys and the daisies. I love monkeys :)

    Good to meet you xx

  3. Thank you :) I went with the windmill, the wooly coo and the tulips as prints, and the eagle, the first portrait and the daisies as the digital images. Hmmm, now that you mention the daisies as a card, that might not be a bad idea LOL. thanks

  4. Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you liked the cherub, some people do, some don't, so I'm glad he's found a happy place to live. I love monkeys too, they're great to photograph and the shot above came 2nd in a previous club competition :)
