Okay so today’s photo is not my favourite 😦 I took it in the same place as the grass photo and was trying to experiment by “cooling” the picture (which gives a more movie like feel) but it doesn’t seem to have came out too amazingly.. Oh well! Of course it does have some good points and after having a second look now I realise it does have some decent elements to it as well as a creepy aura!
If you think you might have a creepy photo that you want me to submit onto here feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org 😀
if you still have any ideas for next week’s photos, write it in the comment section below! 🙂
Hey Everyone 🙂 How was your day? Or how is your day going to be? – depending on where in the world you are right now! 😀 today’s image is a low angle macro of a patch of grass- I know, cool! :O
Of course the entire background of this photo is completely blurred out but it is in fact a long winding path through a forest. Unfortunately that didn’t make the best photo so instead I crouched (well, tripped) to the ground and poised the camera ready for this low angle shot. While sometimes low angle shots can be focused on objects further back, the same rule of thumb applies: Always aim up or horizontal; when I was younger I always had it tilted slightly down and I always wondered why the shots looked so dull/plain! And that is the end of our lesson, night 🙂
Oh Wait I was meant to ask: What theme do you want next week? Suggest some in the comments below and then I’ll continue to make a poll! 🙂
Hey everyone! ;D isn’t today awesome? I mean apart from the fact there was meant to be snow here in England, and there wasn’t 😦 but still another day, another photo 😀
This photograph was taken further up the road from yesterday’s one and combines HDR with some subtle editing to give the trees a silhouette appearance 🙂 hope you enjoy
p.s If anyone would like to display their photos on this blog I would be happy to give them credit if they simply email me with the photo or a link to the photo as well as any personal details eg. Name, country Etc 🙂 the email is email@example.com
The first picture of the new year! In fact the first picture in a while! But that doesn’t matter because we’re all back together and I have a tonne of new photographs to show you, from both me and many other people! This time they will be ten times as good as before!
Anyway about this picture: It appears to be a photograph of a signpost!
Of course it is much more interesting than that… Kinda!
Everyone, at some time in there life, is told to follow a path, or a goal, or a direction and when that time comes you must make a choice: To either listen and follow in the footsteps of others, and be safe and secure in where you are heading;
Or you can attempt to find your own direction, with all the risk and uncertainty to go along with it.
Whilst sometimes the first option can seem the easiest and safest, there is no guarantee that it will be the right path for you. You need to get off the beaten track and create a new path of your own: Your Path
Hey Guys! After 2 months of nothing I’ve finally decided to get this old thing up and running again! It will be AWESOME! I hope everyone enjoys the new photos and there will be plenty more for you to contribute to to make this fun and exciting for all of us! 😀
If any of you have any photography of your own you want to get out there feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional details you want to add eg. Title for pic, name, country! Thankyou and the first photographs will be up on Monday! 😉
edit: If you want updates on when there’s a new post you can either subscribe to the RSS feed; follow the account on twitter, @snapsticle OR subscribe to the email notifications to your left 😉 I mean right! :O
Hello! How are you? Great! Well here is the latest addition to the blog! I hope you like it! It’s a sorta weird snap of Basildon center which has a certain depressing beauty to it! I mean the elegance of the statue as well as how monotone the whole photo appears with a few sparks of colour dashed here and there within the trees and in shining lights! Of course in real life Basildon has no sparks of colour in it! 😛
Anyway I hope you like it! And remember to vote for what theme you want next week on the previous post! 😀
Hey Everyone! I got a post for you! I took this around a week ago, back when these plants hadn’t been eaten by my cat which will seemingly eat anything, and I decided that this would be an amazing post to add to the collection! I hope you enjoy it!
Oh by the way, I forgot to make a poll on what you want next week on yesterdays post… So here it is!
Okay so I scanned through all my snaps of Guy Fawkes night and there were some truly weird and wonderful photos! Out of all of them i discovered these three which I took in rapid succession and displayed this snaptacular view of the fireworks going off with a bang! On a completely unrelated note, what […]
I’m Back! again… sorry about that :O But anyway last night was bonfire night in England so I thought, “why not take a picture of a bonfire?”
This was the result! I tried taking some better ones as well as some snaps of a fireworks… But unfortunately I was so cold by the that time that most of my photos were rubbish! Of course if I find a good one, I’ll post it tonight! 😉
Hello! Sorry for not posting yesterday and the day before 😦 There were some complications with the London thing and I had to get home early and it was difficult, and confusing and tiring. But I’ve finally got a computer back and so I can post again and here is another photo of later on in the day in London 🙂 I took this just after going to a very nice Chinese Restaurant called “Hong Kong Buffet” which had been visited by Gok Wan! (My sister went mad over that) But anyway this place is amazing for photos and cheap food!
So this picture was a bit of an experiment/project as well as a piece of photography! 🙂 It is supposed to be the objects that represent my sisters life at the moment! From the statuette cat that shows her artistic as well as cat like side, to the Foster The People Album that she listens to all the time 😉 To me it looks almost dream-like with the glittering background and the flare in the foreground!
Today’s photo is of my friend (well sister’s friend) Sitting down at the country park not too far from my park! 🙂
I’ve lived in the same place all my life and I only learnt about this place around a year ago! It’s around five times bigger than the other one (I have some photos of a lake, that’s the park) and It’s much more natural and you can actually see the difference throughout the year and it is massive! I am planning to start a photo-montage of the area where I take the same picture everyday for a year then merge it together till I have 365 days! 😀 This will start on January the 1st!
Oh by the way, next weeks photos are of objects! Thanks for voting 🙂
Today’s photo is of my little brother! This snap really brings out how awesome his eyes are! I finally did a black and white by the way! Isn’t that amazing?
I called this photo multitasking because I took this whilst in the break of my gig! That’s right! I had a gig! Too bad it was at a primary school… and I was singing Camp Rock… Did I mention I can’t sing? Anyway, the end result was one embarrassed photographer and one embarrassing photo 😀 Let’s see if my brother looks on the blog tonight! 😀
Hello! How are you today(or night! ) My foot is finally getting better and from the looks of it I’ll be up and taking some more snaps in no time! (tomorrow hopefully)
Anyway, for now here is another image I took whilst in Cumbria of my sister wandering across a seemingly endless beach 🙂 The one thing that doesn’t come across in this shot is that it was around 5 degrees Celsius and we were fighting against a gale force wind! Oh, did I mention it was Summer? 😛 Who doesn’t love Britain’s weather? Another weird thing in this snap is the small squiggly things all over the sand! You can see them in the foreground of the picture and it would be really cool if someone actually told me what they were! haha! anyway! have a good night! (or day, depending on when you read this and where you are! :P)
Edit: Hey! you know that competition I told all you guys about? (2 or 3 posts ago) Well I may have accidentally given you the wrong email address :O What can I say? It was late! Anyway I changed it to the right one, but in case you can’t be bothered to scroll down, here is the right address 🙂 please send here as soon as possible! I’ll close this competition on Saturday next week so get editing!
Once again I have to apologise for not having an actual photograph featuring a person or part of a person! (unless you count birds as people) My ankle is preventing from going not much farther than the toilet! But I promise that by the weekend I will force myself, even if it kills me, to go out and take some more snaptacular shots of people!
This snap was taken whilst at a bird show in Schwarzwald and it was a stunning display! There were many more photos which I have, unfortunately, lost! Never mind though! This Photo clearly shows the elegance and power of these magnificent birds! There wingspan is massive! I wouldn’t want to annoy one of these!
good evening everyone! Unfortunately I couldn’t actually post a photo relating to people today,because my ankle has just got worse and worse! Instead I give you a competition!
It’s simple! The person who can edit this to make it look the awesome-est gets to have their version posted up on the website as well as a shout out to anything they like (and own). Of course you can just do this for fun, or you may just want everyone to know what a good editor you are!
Anyway please send your entries to email@example.com 🙂 Thank you and goodnight! 😀
Do you get it? because “eye” do! Puns aside, these snaps were all taken some time within the week and, rather than just posting a whole album and having to figure out a whole new feature of the website, I decided to make one massive collage of some of the best! 😀
admittedly they are not all of the highest quality and the theme this week is humans so my cats eyes probably should be excluded, but I saw this as a unique way of displaying the snaps as well as also improving my knowledge on all the editing tools! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it! 😉
Hola! Hey everyone, I’m alive! After two days of being to lazy to get out of bed, as my sister put it, I am back and ready to add some colour into your lives 😉 The real reason I was inactive for these two days is because someone fell on my foot and I tore some of the muscles, tendons etc.. in my ankle! Luckily it’s healed quickly and I’ll be back on my feet in no time, literally 😀
This is another photo that I took at my local park, and although it might be a little over-saturated and has nothing in particular to do with autumn, it does have some very nice qualities and has in fact water contained with in! amazing! 😀
When I took this snaptacular shot I was out at the park with my friends and we had decided to stop and rest so we found this patch of grass by the lake and relaxed. By the time we got up we were all itching, so, looking at our clothes, we discover they had been invaded by a wave of little, tiny, disgusting insects! after a large ordeal with a lot of screaming involved we eventually cleaned them all out and came home, having lost our dignity and a perfectly good hat!
It’s sam’s sister posting today because Sam is too lazy. Here is a sea creature, I’m not sure what it is like a prawn or something? Sam’s just lying in bed itching his leg. I’m such a good sister. This photo was taken by Sam but I did the editing. I love the contrast in this photo! Well bye:) Squidge
Don’t you just love that amazing feeling you get when you wake up on a weekend and you feel as free as a bird? All the stresses of the week simply disappear and you’re free to do what you will!
I certainly do! Last weekend I went out to the forest, had a walk, and took some spectacular photos! They were great! Too bad I fell In a lake shortly after… The cameras still functioning properly, but the memory failed and this is the one photo I recovered! Oh well! At least it’s clean! 🙂
Due to a request from a friend I had no choice but to put this up 🙂 a few months ago I woke up and spontaneously went to an Alpaca farm! As you can tell it was a very exciting day indeed 😉 I left the farm with a far vaster knowledge of Alpacas, hair in my hands, and an egg that had been kindly donated to me by the farmer 🙂
Hello Everyone! Sorry for the late post today! felt a little ill. 😦 Still that didn’t stop me posting today photo! This was taken whilst in the Black Forest or “Schwarzwald” in Germany! It was a terrific experience and had some beautiful views! unfortunately most of them beautiful views never made it to my computer and so are now gone forever, However I still have this one and I hope you Enjoy it 😀
Good morning everyone! How are you? Today is a new day, and with it comes a new theme! Autumn (and water)!
I’m not too sure whether this photo has the right quality to be on the blog but unfortunately I lost a lot of my photos recently, but I will tell that story later 🙂 It was difficult choosing whether this was more a winter photo or an autumn photo… So I tinted it slightly brown and I said it was Autumn. 😉
The final piece of the puzzle! This is the last photo under the London theme! Isn’t an amazing moment? Anyway this photo is a bit of an experiment as I tried using a new photo editing app, tell me what you think and remember to share this blog with your friends 😛
Today’s theme photo is going to be coming a little later, so whilst we wait, allow me to show you a portrait photo, which you have all been requesting! 🙂 This snap was taken on the way to Ireland, of my cousin. Obviously, I didn’t ask her permission to post it on here and I don’t remember whether she was particularly ecstatic about the photo in the first place, so this will be a fun surprise for her! 😀
I don’t think my naming skills are that keen today, but I hope you like the picture! ;D This was taken as we were heading for the lost property of the DLR service in Poplar and I just thought what a stark contrast there was between the sky scraping buildings and the small, unkempt apartments less than a mile away. Of course I could go on about how it is not right that they leave the locals needs and wants out of the picture, but this is a photography blog, not a politics site! 😛 so I hope you enjoy!
by the way, the poll for the theme next week closes at 1:00 today, so get voting! ;D
Ahhh the Millenium bridge! Always bustling with life and brimming with different cultures; To the north St. Paul’s Cathedral, an amazing piece of architecture and a beautiful building; to the south the Tate modern, a converted power plant that has some of the most famous pieces of modern art in the world held with in, not that modern art is particularly good 😛 but that’s just my opinion.
This picture was a bit stop and go unfortunately which is why the HDR seems to have failed slightly! On another note, I’m going to London today, so tomorrow you should see some freshly taken snaps! 😉
Good morning! Today’s photo is a snap from canary wharf in Cabot square. The reason I called it ‘London’s Manhattan is because the whole area was made to look American and resemble the manhattan area of New york!
This photo is pretty strange, I took it and made it look like a sunny, bright day, but where I was it was pouring with rain! It just hadn’t spread to the canary wharf yet :O
Okay so this Morning I saw that we have reached 500 views in total, and it’s only been 6 days! 😀
This is absolutely thrilling to me and it looks like it is going to grow only faster and faster!
This is what the hits stats look like right now-
So by the looks of it, this blog is going to be expanding extremely quickly! 🙂 obviously this means that I will be dedicating more time to to the blog which is good for everyone. Of course this still isn’t enough for me! It would be great if you went and told family and friends about this new blog, and I will be truly appreciative.
Here is also a reminder to vote for what theme you want of photography next week 🙂
Who likes the creepy reference? Well even if you don’t you can hopefully enjoy this photograph taken a while back. I don’t remember the exact time though, and, to be honest, I’m pretty sure this wasn’t taken in April :O
The main reason I chose this picture and not anything else is down to the small bush on the bottom right of the photo. Apart from it helping the composition, it is pretty peculiar to see any sorts of vegetation on the side of the Thames!
London! Wow! What a place! It has everything in it! from Sky-scraping Skyscrapers to cheap Chinese restaurants, London has everything! One of my favourite places is St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Millenium Bridge and the area around the Tate Museum. There are some stunning views and many vantage points to take interesting photos of the bus-tling city(see what I did there?)
Anyhow this picture was one of the luckiest snaps I ever took! I wasn’t looking, I pointed it at moving traffic, and HDR had been left on. It should have been a blur, but somehow I took this 🙂 probably the most surreal, photo I’ve taken, but it is definitely a cool one 😉
Okay, so this is the plan for my website from here on in, thanks to your suggestions this website has dramatically improved since it was established 4 days ago… Ahh, feels like yesterday! Anyway, it’s definitely going to be on the up and up!
One suggestion, that I was given was to every week give you the vote for a theme for the following weeks photos! I thought this was a brilliant Idea so from here on in I will be having a poll for the next week’s photo’s themes! This week it’ll be London, since there’s no time to vote, and I have pictures to spare, but On his post will also be a poll for what theme you wanted next week! If you want any others to be voted upon, just add it to the poll and it’ll be seen 🙂
On another note, the basics of the site is that, at least once a day a photograph will be posted by me, but on top of that I might also display fan work, ie. If you want me to post some of your photography just get in contact through either the facebook page, twitter page or the email account, firstname.lastname@example.org.
of course it doesn’t have to just be pictures! It could be paintings, or just your views on the site 🙂
If I find I have to many photos, I will also be posting them 🙂
This page will continue to grow thanks to your snaptacular ideas, and with any luck, this site will be even more enjoyable for both of us!
Okay, so turns out I fall over a lot! This happened while I was exploring Aira Force, a small but inspirational waterfall, in the Lake District of Cumbria! This is the same place where the famous poet, Wordsworth, was inspired to his world renowned poem, I wandered lonely as a cloud! Seeing the area I could see why! It was truly stunning an it would have been impossible to capture all of it’s beauty in a single photo! (unless I had a panorama feature)
When I started this expedition of sorts, I assumed it would take at most 15 minutes And would be at most 1km to the waterfall and back. I was wrong. It took 4 hours, and 5 miles. I now leave the map reading to others 🙂 anyway so halfway through walking I went and fell down the side of the fall, which luckily wasn’t to steep at this point and, being such a creative mind, I sat down and took pictures for 20 minutes. And that explains these picture 😛
Edit: somehow forgot to actually post the snap, that takes some skill don’t you think? Anyway it’s up now 😛
Re-edit: And then I choose the wrong photo, nice work Sam 😛 anyway you might not see the difference but this one is a lot more detailed 🙂
