Well photo wise I'm kept busy by the distance learning photography degree I've just started.
www.seeandimagine.com is the blog documenting my progress, a mix of photos some OK, some not too good but making the point of the excersise.

Just doing it for fun and the hope of getting more shots worth keeping. Though if I manage to sell a few at least it will help fund my rather large camera collection!
EOS5DII
EOS20D
EOS10
EOS1Vhs
Canon A1
Powershot G10
Ixus 75
Kiev 60
Kiev 88
Zeiss Nettar 6x6
Voightlander Bessa
MPP Micropress MkVIII
Lubital 166U
Mamiya 645
And probably a few I've forgotten!

To post photos using the "attach file" feature the photos have to be re-sized to 640 X 480 pixels or less. You can do this by editing the photos in MS windows picture manager, on a photo hosting site, or with the many other photo editing programmes available.

I am not out and about much this year due to the house refurbishment and so I have very little to photograph, I am not showing the work I have done recently because of a none disclosure agreement with my joint venture partners, and the new camera I have that has replaced the one stolen from me last November does not fit into my pocket like the old one did.

I've been posting my pics on other threads.

Mostly I'm photographing pigs:




We have lots of tomatoes that are slowly starting to ripen:




And I'm proud of my melons (Oooeeerr Mrs!)




And here's a pretty Sweetpea

I have just stepped out into the garden to take some photos.

A couple of shots of our 3 tiered herb planter 2 weeks after I finished making it:






Our 3 tiered Vegetable planter; Lois and I can not eat the produce quick enough to out run the growing:



A Lily in a pot on the patio:



2 of my reclaimed pallet timber flower boxes that I fitted to the cladding of the 1000 litre water tank; the timber on the top of the tank is for our currently work-in-progress 3 tiered flower planter:

The slow cooker, Foreman grill & BBQ are seeing a lot of action at the moment.  

I am currently waiting for the plasterer to arrive so here is a quick snap of my Polo bike now it has the front wheel disc fitted:

They all get occasional use depending on my mood, love film and it is my favourite but I'm using the 5D and G10 most at the moment so I can easily get pics for the course posted into the blog.
The Kiev 88 is the latest to collection, not tried it yet but am looking forward to it, takes all the pentacon six mount lenses so anything from the Russian bargains to top notch Zeiss glass that wouldn't look out of place on a Hassablad let alone a Hassabldski!
