Now that we're at the end of the January, I'm eagerly awaiting the forthcoming Spring with its colourful flowers. While I wait, I am very happy to snap the likes of this selection, at a florists on Gloucester Road, Bristol.

Slowing down the shutter-speed to capture water creates this ethereal effect - even slight movement becomes misty and when lit up looks absolutely magical. I'm dying to get down to a river or waterfall and try and capture this sense of movement in a more natural setting.

The daffodils have been a little over-eager this year. It has been so mild they have been fooled into thinking Spring is here. Sadly, Mother Nature will, as always, have the last word - the morning frosts have left them drooping and withered.

My first long exposure on my night-walk around London was a total accident. I pushed the shutter button while the camera was down by my side, not poised on a tripod pointing at anything. However, I quite like this accidental abstract effect!

I really like how this photo shows trees in a totally different way to how I would usually expect - by night with the festive lights they look almost otherworldly. It would be fun to go back in the different seasons to try and capture their changing adornments.
I absolutely loved my night-time photography walk around London - it enabled me to capture shots I haven't tried until now, like this one.
This image represents the 'passage of time' for two reasons: Big Ben (our country's most famous marker of time) in the background and the long exposure time of around 4 seconds which passed between my shutter opening and closing. I love it and hope you do too!

Today, not a photo by me, but of a pioneering female photojournalist who has sadly left this world.
We remember her today.

Tonight I will be in London, practising my night-time photography. I will hopefully return after the weekend with some interesting shots.

Having spent the past couple of years growing increasingly attached to my collection of cameras and evermore excited about photography, I have decided to set up this little blog as my project for 2012.
There are 366 days in 2012. It is a special year.
My goal is to take a photo for each day, each linked to one of themes listed on the sidebar, and chart my progress on this blog. The hoped for outcomes are to take more considered photographs, learn and develop new skills in photography and editing and meet some like-minded people along the way.
So this is my invite to you - please join me on this new, exciting journey.
I'd love to have you along.
