I was reading about a new Kickstarter lens today and remembered that I had a set of lenses that I’ve never actually used from K&F Concept. They’re magnification addons these ones are 52mm so they screw into your kit lens with no problems. I just rammed all four together to give it X17 magnification and they worked pretty well on some slowly dying flowers. I’ve … Continue reading Macro Testing
Stadio Sant’Elia The weekend past saw the last competitive match at Cagliari’s home ground Stadio Sant’Elia with a 2-1 victory over AC Milan, so I thought I’d redo some old photos I shot a few years back in tribute. The stadium has been Cagliari’s home since 1970 moving in the season after winning their so far one and only Scudetto triumph. Nessun Dorma, World In … Continue reading Stadio Sant’Elia The Final Match
Finally got around to developing this 35mm film a couple of days ago, I think it’s been around for a year or more waiting. The film was actually out the can when I last attempted to develop then I realised that my developer was off! The film was then put back in the wee plastic case thing and it’s been sitting in a box ever … Continue reading Old Film

This is one of Oor Wullie’s moose(mouse)Jeemy poking his wee head out Wullie’s school satchel. A decent bout of weather today but decided to once again go for the dark moody look. Continue reading Wullie’s Moose
Go out and shoot some film/digital or watch football and regret the chance to get out and a day wasted? Watched the football, or what I could be bothered to watch between flickin’ through recipes for tonight’s dinner and end up regretting the time wasted. Briefly nipped out and fired off a few rounds from the DSLR with a 28mm lens slapped on the front. … Continue reading Last Post Tombstone
Well these receipts are all bust! When you go to the bookies and hand over your money you get a wee bit of paper, how much that paper is worth depends on how much you’ve handed over. Probably about ninety quid there! Thankfully a decent return on Thursday and a heroic effort from an 18/1 shot in the Highland National and other wee returns here … Continue reading Win Or Bust?
