Welcome to my blog, here I'll discuss goodness knows what but mostly I hope to discuss my photos that I've taken and in some cases played around with. I hope you all like what you see and please feel free to leave any comments which as always are very much appreciated and big thanks for all those kind enough to leave them.

Thank You.

Oohhh pretty.

Oohhh pretty., originally uploaded by Coolgirlsar.

I thought seeing as it had been so long that I should really post something here. So here we go.

Yesterday although only sleet was predicted by those ever so clever weather men we had a huge heaping of snow. This is a shot from our potted christmas tree outside our front door. And the glow in the background? Well that would be from the lights we have up outside on our house. lol.

Hard Choices

For a long time I've wanted to get a photo or two of my own printed up onto canvas. I've shied away so far because of the costs and not too sure where to go. Well yesterday while shopping in Romford, Essex I came upon a new business called Photo 2 Canvas and they were offering fairly good prices, good enough for me to enquire about and to then decide I'll get some. The problem now though is deciding which two photos I want to print up. I've narrowed it down to wanting photos of Callum in and prefably ones of him on his own and I'm pretty certain this will be one of them:

But choosing that second photo and having to wade through over 2,500 photos is a hard job. There are a few other photos that my husband Daz and I are very fond on but personally I am not sure how they will look transferred onto canvas. Then there are photos that I would have printed up but I know from experience of printing them onto photo paper that the quality is not good enough which is a shame.

This photo is one of Daz' favourite and at the moment may well be my second choice.

However there is this photo which a few people we know have said they like:

Then I think should I maybe just have one potrait photo done and then say a still life photo that I've taken printed up, like say this photo:

Like I said it's a hard choice. So if anyone does read this and fancy having a nose through my photos and leaving a suggestion I'd be happy to hear what that choice would be.

Project 365

At the end of last year I decided to this year embark on a photo challenge. Flickr where I host pretty much all of my photos has many wonderful groups and there are plenty there with challenges, most notably the 365 Days group. I did a few times last year try to do those but the main part was that you had to have yourself in some form in the photo and that I found hard to do. This year though thanks to an online friend I heard about the
Project 365 Group.
This sounded more up my street as I didn't have to be in the photos. So here I am Day 22 into Project 365 and enjoying it but also finding it challenging to find something to photography. It's making me think more about what I want to photograph and how I'm going to go about photographing the days subject. Now all I have to do is keep at it for a lot more day.

If anyone wants to have a look you can find my photos in My Project 365 Set. Each day I add the photo of the day to the set so you can easily keep up to date with how I am doing.

I just hope the weather picks up soon as I'm starting to run out of things to photograph around the home.
