Yes I`ve been trying to take new shots as much as I can last few weeks and enjoying the challenge a bit more again. Also been trying to do a shot a day for a whole month. 18 days in  and I`ve managed it.  Yes the cat and a couple of household implements have features out of  desperation one or two  days but managing to keep my camera about me more often and done a few specific photo walks to  try and re-engage myself. Only happening with my little Fuji but looking to get the Nikon d700 out of retirement too any day now.

Last minute rush again last night.
Nearly set fire to the kitchen too, and set the smoke alarm of twice using the indoor fireworks. Sarah (my wife) was really impressed!

Pity, I had already voted.

My 'Red Shoes' is very old and dates to my early days as a photographer. I was very into experimenting with all the possibilities my editing programme (Elements) offered.

It was definitely not meant as an entry. I am totally 'out' of photography and have only taken pictures when I went to Indonesia in November and most of them just sit on my laptop; occasionally I edit one.

I do drop in here occasionally and vote if I think of it.

It`s alright R. I deleted that poll and am setting up another now. I shouldn`t be trusted out on my own!  :D

You (and we) are safe on CC; you're never on your own.
