I decided to take pictures of the only thing that taking up my time, my children, here they are Amelia and Imogen with a Canon EF 90 - 300mm lens and a 13mm  extension tube attached to my 5D MKII.

Family get togethers

Christmas day is over 'long live Christmas day' and the family get togethers are upon us, Boxing day at the sisters with my side of the family gathering and the day after at our home for Paula's side of the family, with just New Years Eve at Paula's Sisters to go, to drive or not to drive 'that is the question'. here's a few photos of Paula and Me, my sisters Lyn and Sandra respectively from the Boxing day gathering. Happy New Year one and all.

Christmas in Liverpool

It's that time of year again, yes it's Christmas, a time for no time to do anything, everyone rushing around trying to get things done, food to be brought, and cooked, presents to be wrapped and hidden from children. office parties, office politics, Home polities, family arguments over how much to spend on whom, etc, etc,  So in the midst of this I decided along with a couple of other like minded souls decided to take a trip to Liverpool!..... to take some pictures, yes you heard right, in the middle of the busiest season of the shopping year a trip to Liverpool, the day went well sub-zero temperatures, snow blizzards on the motorway, car washers icing up, extortionate parking and to top it all off camera's freezing up, lenses misting up and authorities with a anti-tripod policies.

Did the trip go well? who knows? have a look at a few I had the time to edit. Merry Christmas everyone roll on next Crimbo.

The Wedding

All's well with the wedding in Ashbourne despite no light, no place to take photos and three different artificial light sources to correct, tungsten, fluorescent, halogen with a smidgen of natural twilight creeping in for good measure, the happy couple are well....? 'happy', Rebecca and me are recuperating (well I am), DVDs and CDs delivered in record time and an order in for a Coffee Table Book.  Here are a few of pics to look at:
