Here’s a useful post (with several useful links) about editing images for a blog post from Helen. Please don’t like or comment on my reblog, hop on over to Journey to Ambeth and say hi!
This is a photograph I took the other day on my way home from the supermarket. I thought it quite atmospheric, the way the sky was reflected in the water, the boat and two men silhouetted against the rippling clouds.
I published a post a little while ago about using stock photography, and another about using images on books and blog posts, and then talked a little bit about using our own photography where possible.

Thanks for the reblog, Suzie! 😀
Always welcome my lovely!
Yes, I like taking photographs but I’m not very good at it. I spent a lot of different lenses but in the end it comes down to the person on the shutter button rather than the lenses. I believe I can do all sorts of magic things with my Canon – just don’t know how to. Oh well, just muddle along.

I’ll ask him tonight and let you know!
