“I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then”
― Lewis Carroll

It’s that time of year when the morning performs wonderfully for the camera. The world is transformed in the early morning dew – sunlight glints, cobwebs materialise and something that looked dull and mundane yesterday, is vibrant and alluring today.

I ventured through the village early this morning to get my shots, I decided that the garden had enough attention over the past few days and it was time to go out and capture something fresh. I wasn’t disappointed.

Recently a lot of people have been asking me about my Photography equipment and the efforts I go to, in order to get my images. I spend probably one day a week actually taking time and efforts over Photography – that’s it. The rest of the days I capture things as I go along, taking photos here and there and really not planning at all. I rarely use a tripod, tripods get in the way. They trip me up most of the time which is most annoying! I take simply my DSLR which is a Sony A57, a Portrait Lens which I use as a macro lens…an 18 – 55 wide lens and a 70 – 300mm zoom lens. Spare batteries are a necessity!

The feedback I get every day, always amazes me. I chucked some pears on the kitchen table one day and half heartedly snapped away and the response was incredible. As I’ve mentioned before, lying in a flowerbed for a few minutes shooting droplets on a flower got me a freshly pressed award – which meant that over 100s of people visited my blog that day. It’s the simple things, that seem to catch people’s eyes. And in striving to capture the simple things – you really don’t have to try very hard.

The power of a single thread is incredible. I’ve just followed Buddy round the house gathering up a piece of cotton that he got caught on himself. It’s everywhere, including all over him. Amusing, but also frustrating. He stopped by our other Dog with it and she picked it up on her paws too. Crazy stuff!

Anyway on with the blog. Today I was quite enchanted by the trees against the sunlight and blue sky. It was peaceful at the top of the garden where I spent some time escaping the madness of my work Blackberry which seemed to have exploded with angry people and lots of emails.

Green, as you may or may not have noticed, is pretty much my favourite colour in the Summer closely followed by Oranges, Reds and Browns in Winter. I can’t wait for these leaves to turn so I can get some Autumnal pictures. I know I’m wishing away summer – but it’s time!

The bank holiday is looming and with it a barrage of rain and wind set to come and batter England, it’s only fair that it brings Autumn with it! I hope wherever you are that regardless, you have a good one!
