Poor Ben



Poor Ben got stung by a bee on his nose. He's feeling real sorry for himself and hiding his nose in the blanket.

Danielle shots reworked









These were taken last year at Washington Camera Club studio night. I've changed them to mono and softened them in Photoshop. I really like the effect; hope you do.

A walk in the woods







Today my friends decided I should get myself out and about and stop worrying about all the bad stuff going on my life at the moment that's making me ill. We went for a walk in the bluebell wood. The bluebells were just starting to come out and by next week the woods should be carpeted out with bluebells in full bloom. It was really nce to get out and not think for a little while.
All the images were hand held. I didn't take my tripod with me.
