It was a lovely day, and as I was out testing the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and Thingyfy Pinhole I stopped for a while for some smartphone infrared snaps with the Hoya 720nm Infrared filter.

Digital infrared aerochromes with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8, 05 April 2023
Remember the tree from my infrared photowalk a couple of days ago? I promised myself that I would head out and see what it looked like as a digital aerochrome. It did not disappoint.
Some infrared photography with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8, 02 April 2023
It was a lovely day, so there’s no excuse not to take out the full-spectrum Lumix for some Infrared photography around Carris. Using the modified Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and an Urth 720nm Infrared filter.
Roadside flowers #CloseUp, 17 February 2023
I learned later that these unusual looking seed pods are from a wild clematis. They were spotted alongside the road in a piece of scrubby wasteland near Luton Airport.

It was a lovely sunny day, for a change, so I just had to take out the full-spectrum Lumix DMC-TZ8.
Everyday abstracts, 02 January 2023
Some random abstracts and close-up images with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 floppy disk camera.
It’s #flyday Friday, 23 December 2022
It was #FlyDay last Friday, and although I meant to post then there wasn’t quite the time. This particular fly was buzzing around the kitchen and I used the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 for these super low resolution images. #fliesarebeautiful
Low resolution #CloseUp, 23 December 2022
Took the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 out on the patio and tried some close-ups in ‘macro’ mode for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge
An unusual #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 07 December 2022
I’ve been using the ‘high specification’ Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 for much of the #1990sCameraChallenge, but I thought it might be nice to see a sunrise through its more basic sibling, the MVC-FD51. Like before, I held an ND filter over the lens to take off the glare of the rising sun. This time, though, instead ofContinue reading “An unusual #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 07 December 2022”
A #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise, 03 December 2022
After the file error on the first day of the #1990sCameraChallenge and sleeping through the sunrise yesterday, this morning I was determined to catch the sunrise before the rain returns. Taken with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. An ND4 filter was held over the lens to take off the glare of the rising sun.
#MacroMonday, 28 November 2022
I’ve never done a #MacroMonday before, but as it’s Monday and I can’t resist little diamonds on the cabbage leaves, I thought why not?
Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022
I’ve been suffering from GAS again. This time it’s this unusual looking camera, the Nikon Coolpix 990 from 2000. I actually wanted the first of this range of cameras, the 900, for the #ShittyCameraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge but I couldn’t find it. So this one will have to do (and I’m actually very happy with it). OfContinue reading “Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022”

I have no idea what this plant is called but it has some unusual looking flowers.
#Flyday Friday, 18 November 2022
It’s #FlyDay Friday again, and this time flies are sunning themselves after the overnight rain. Hope everyone has a great day. #fliesarebeautiful
A selection of roadside flowers, 14 November 2022
When I’m out for a walk I have my phone to hand and always take a photograph of at least one flower (seasons permitting) to send to my better half. Of course, I always get carried away.
Roadside flowers #CloseUp, 12 November 2022
Out for a walk with the Sony Mavica and the disk is full. Fortunately, I have my phone to hand for these lovely flowers from the side of the road.
Out with the modded Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 for some digital infrared, 10 November 2022
It’s been a while since I have been able to take some digital infrared photographs, but this morning the weather was ideal.
Sunset at 140km/h, 8 November 2022
We were on our way home after a day in Porto on the high speed train, and I could not resist grabbing a few shots of the sunset.
A walk around Águas Boas, 30 October 2022
After several dismal days, the sun came out. Whether this was because today the clocks went back, or that was just a coincidence, who knows? But the clouds were amazing.
