Strange Challenge Turns into Enjoyment

So, I have been spending not hours, but days working on an image that has frankly changed the way I do business – i.e. I won’t do that again lol.
Four days in and I get a fun photo challenge from Gabsatrucker’s Aunt who lives on the edge of Death Valley in Nevada, USA.

It was simple really, take and post a photo under the broad title of “Nature” every single day for one whole week.

I’m not saying I’ve got used to my chair but I was like “Wha…. you mean go out *there*….”

Our camera is a Fuji HS30 EXR, it’s far exceeded its shutter life, it takes about one sharp photo in 200 now – but I thought, If I can do this then maybe, just maybe,  if I ever get good equipment I might be alright at this one day.

The week just finished and here are the results for your enjoyment.  I’m not fishing for compliments as I have found in my life, criticism is a far better creative tool and one that makes you learn more. So feel free to complain about them, but note I possibly already aware of blur, aberration etc. 😀
Oh and the photo of the big house (Wollaton Hall aka Wayne Manor in The Dark Knight Rises) was taken from 2.05 miles (3.30 km) away.

No points of spotting the TWBrit logo in every pic 😉 Copyrights are what they are, TWBrit/RWIR/Me 🙂

Finally a huge thank you to Cheryl and of course Gabsatrucker for pointing out and showing me some amazing places where I took all but one of these photos.

Gabsatrucker also runs another great site for all you fitness and running type folks called of Runsound Mind

Something for Christmas that we’re kinda proud of…

Due for release any time now:  Saving Bletchley Park by Dr Sue Black. 51gLwiNPbvL._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_
And we promote this for two very good reasons!!

Firstly it’s a damn good and very down to earth read of a fascinating story of Sue Black’s efforts to successfully save the place that saved our entire nation and millions of lives worldwide told by the person who did it with the power of social media.

Secondly: As our RWiR site (link on the right) we didn’t design the book cover, but we did spend a long time preparing the images for it, many were phone taken photos we had to get to print quality.

Our input was minor compared the time and efforts put into this by Sue Black, but we’re very proud to have been a part of it.

The Book will be available on Unbound website first and on Amazon later in the New Year and once it’s available the Unbound website page will move from the crowd funded page to a sale page….
Here is Unbound’s present page and the Amazon link.
