While at the park........


We've had some gorgeous weather the past couple of days, so yesterday I took the kids out to the park to get some fresh air, it was lovely :)  While sitting on the bench relaxing, my daughter brought me some flowers, I only had my iphone, but couldn't resist taking a few pics.  Nowadays I prefer using the iphone to take photos, maybe it's the editing I can do there and then, then post and share, hhmmm....

I noticed yesterday that someone had cracked my right wing mirror on the car, I was not happy, especially as a couple of months back a few times we had nails in our tyres.  Just the other week also our neighbour had her back window of her car cracked and eventually ended up shattering, so I'm not sure if it's the same person targetting some of the cars here, but whoever it is it makes me really annoyed, these people don't have any respect for other people's property, if it happened to their car, well....probably the whole world would know about it. 

But enough ranting for today, the weather's gorgeous again, I want to enjoy my day insha Allaah :D

The Daily Shoot.....

Well it's a gorgeous day here in Wales, really want to get out with my camera and take some outdoor pics, which I haven't done for ages! but may have to postpone for another day, as my mum may be coming, it's been weeks since she came last, due to her car being off the road.
 
But before I get off the computer and start tidying like a mad woman, I wanted to share a website I just came across called The Daily Shoot , they post assignments each day on Twitter which after completing you can then upload to one of the photo sharing sites, like flickr for example, and then tweet a link to your photo to share.

The idea is to encourage you - The photographer, to get your camera out and start shooting, as they say 'practice makes perfect!' So I may have a go at this insha Allaah.

Also wanted to share a photo I added some textures to yesterday, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I love it, one of the textures I used is 'northern lights' by pareerica, you can find the texture on flick here , I've used it on another photo and I just love the effect it gives, I also used a texture by Kim Klassen. Hope you like it :) ....
