Re: New Photography Thread.

You are more advanced than me with this photography lark, LL. Nice landscape picture. Our village church. The sun was going down and the floodlights were on. I put the flash on which picked out the branches on the tree. Close up it looks like a painting on canvas. No filters, no enhancement. https:/...

Re: Ilona's handmade makes. New thread

I love your colours Ilona. I have many pieces of cross stitch, patchwork, etc around the house, but as I said in your photography thread, I am unable to photo and download. I am able to put photo's here because they are stored online on my blog. I copy the file code, click on the picture icon above...

Re: any new hobbies?

I haven't got round to playing with the display on the screen. Such a lot to learn.

Re: New Photography Thread.

I walked across the Humber Bridge yesterday, as I have done many times before. Looking for new angles for an interesting pic. A moody sky helps, so much depends on the position of the sun and clouds. Would have been better if I had managed to get the wheels of a passing lorry the other side of that ...

Re: New Photography Thread.

A dog I used to walk for a friend. Got her to sit among the sugar beet. Sadly gone now. The owner has this picture in a frame.

I am interested in colour, contrasts, and composition.

Re: New Photography Thread.

Now that is a close up. It would easily convert to a piece of textile art. The colours and textures are interesting.

Re: any new hobbies?

No, it's not an SLR, cannot unscrew the lens. It's a Canon SX740 HS. I wanted something pocket size that I can carry in a pouch and get it out at any time. It's slightly bigger and heavier than a normal pocket size but smaller than an SLR. This is a shot I took with an older camera, a Fujifilm fd. O...

Re: any new hobbies?

So, I've opened a new thread. Yes, LL I like buildings, old and new. Unusual buildings. Reflections in water are good. Got to have a focal point. I like to play around with close ups but don't have a special lens for that. I edit with a simple programme already on my computer. Tweak the contrast, cr...

Re: Ilona's handmade makes. New thread

Might as well resurrect this thread, now I know how to add photo's. I have always got some art or craft project on the go. Something I finished last week. The heart is embroidered, with strips of fabric added to frame it. Stretched over an 8 inch canvas, with a piece of fabric stitched onto the back...

Re: any new hobbies?

Ilona, well done! I have Ted's camera, which I haven't a clue how to use. He used to download pictures onto the internet. It is sitting on the shelf and I so wish I could find out how to use it properly. I seem to remember that there are pages and pages of instructions on the internet. My camera ha...

Re: any new hobbies?

I bought a new camera, a Canon with an exceptionally good zoom. I am now looking for interesting subjects to photograph. It's making me look at my surroundings more closely. As I walk a lot I am finding trees that make good photographs. It's good for making videos as well. I can zoom in as I walk ar...

New hen house

Hello. I don't normally post on here because I don't have any poultry. I support GoodHeart Animal Sanctuary and they are planning a new home to take in rescued hens. GoodHeart rescue all kinds of farm animals. I have been there and have seen the work that they do. If you want to have a look here is ...
