Someone is not in the mood..


She's a bit annoyed by the camera clicking in front of her while she just wants to sleep. So just a moody headshot of my tough girl.. ;)

What a beautiful specimen. The largest I have ever seen, I'd guess it's length at around four and a half feet.

Girl who played with a fake moustache...


Yes, no hornet's nests, no fire and positively, definitely no dragon tattoos...

How Do You Work This Thing

Ninety five percent of the time, I keep my camera setting on manual. And Ninety five percent of the time I forget to set something before shooting. I stressed for an hour over the settings before finally feeling happy about them. I ran outside and snapped about 100 photos!

Imagine my surprise when I uploaded them to the computer and they all came out looking like this! I couldn't believe I had been holding the camera BACKWARDS all morning!!!

Atleast the settings were correct

PS. I was so stressed my brains leaked. :)

Es una tortuga...

My wife and I joke about Shakira's song "The Torture" because it sounds pretty much like "Turtle" (even in Spanish "Tortura" and "Tortuga" sound similar), so when I gave her this turtle from the movie "Finding Nemo" we decided unanimously to call it "Shakira" hehehe

Back Off!

As you're probably aware, tensions rose during the government spending cuts demonstations in London in March. As angry protesters started jostling towards police lines, the officers had no choice other than to push people back and demand they stay away. This particular demonstrator got a right ticking off from this riot policeman.

A shot taken to test settings prior to heading out and shooting daffs in the dark (!). It wasn't meant to be a keeper, but I love it.

Glad you decided this was a keeper Gerard. Beautiful image! Thanks for sharing this with us in the Monochrome Mondays theme.

"J'ai marché, réveillant les haleines vives et tièdes"


"J'ai embrassé l'aube d'été.
Rien ne bougeait encore au front des palais. L'eau était morte. Les camps d'ombres ne quittaient pas la route du bois. J'ai marché, réveillant les haleines vives et tièdes, et les pierreries regardèrent, et les ailes se levèrent sans bruit.
La première entreprise fut, dans le sentier déjà empli de frais et blêmes éclats, une fleur qui me dit son nom.
Je ris au wasserfall blond qui s'échevela à travers les sapins : à la cime argentée, je reconnus la déesse.
Alors je levai un à un les voiles. Dans l'allée, en agitant les bras. Par la plaine, où je l'ai dénoncée au coq. À la grand'ville elle fuyait parmi les clochers et les dômes, et courant comme un mendiant sur les quais de marbre, je la chassais.
En haut de la route, près d'un bois de lauriers, je l'ai entourée avec ses voiles amassés, et j'ai senti un peu son immense corps. L'aube et l'enfant tombèrent au bas du bois.
Au réveil il était midi."
[Arthur Rimbaud - Aube - Illuminations]


Beautiful portrait Jean-Marc and thank you for sharing this with us in the Portrait Thursdays theme..
