Spirit of Corby

This is one of 10 photos I've taken for an exhibition at the camera club I go to. The photos were up for judging last week and I have been told that this was voted for by everyone.

It's a sculpture in the middle of the shopping centre. Just because I could I stood underneath it to take the shot. Most people take a side on photo because they haven't realised that there's a gate in the fence that surrounds it.

The scultpure is called "Spirit of Corby". Corby is a steeltown in the Midlands. It was famous for the steelworks that were here from the 1930s until the 1980s. There is a pipeline under the sea (known as Pluto) made from Corby Steel. The sculpture represents the molton steel as it is pored into moulds.

New start

Well I've not Blogged in months but thought I really should keep it up. I just don't have that much time.

I've found a new template which I really like. I love those birds!

I really want to have a go at making my own template so keep an eye on this space :D I think a photo blog might be on the cards too.

Manic Monday

Not played for ages but thought I should! Couldn't see this week's questions (but it is still early in the USA) so here are last weeks!

Do you listen to music regularly? What's your favorite way to listen-- radio, CD, iPod...?
I listen to the radio in the car and sometimes in the office.

When listening to music do you tend to focus more on the lyrics or the melody?
A catchy tune usually gets me hooked then I listen to the lyric.

If you had to pick a theme song to sum up your life right now, what would it be?
Soulmate by Natasha Bedingfield.

Scrapbooking the secret

This weeks secret was all about your secret wishes. It was both hard and easy. Hard because there are so many things I could have done, easy because I decided to focus on my illness. Then when I took this photo in my garden it all fell into place.

I have slightly tweeked the photo. Just by draining the colour so that it reflects how ME makes me feel, drained of all colour and also for the text to show up. The text colour is from the photo in it's slightly drained form.

scrapbooking the secret

Here's mine for this week. I had so many things I could have put on a layout. I even revisited one from a while ago that was called "my favourite things". But as I love this photo and it was only taken last week I had to use it.

The sad news today is my camera has broken so if anyone wants to donate a digi SLR then I will be your best friend forever :) I'm not fussy; a 10m Canon or Nixon would do, especially if it comes with a couple of lenses.
