This is a view of Helensburgh from my living room window. It clearly shows the gasometer at the bottom of Grant Street and the flats on Grant Street opposite St. Joseph's Church Hall where yesterday's UKPM Group Shoot took place.
Right of the gasometer is Clyde Street School - a location used by a few of us.

Zoe braving the cold at today's group shoot in Helensburgh. This was taken in the playground at the old Clyde Street School where the close proximity to the water, combined with the wind really did make it feel extremely cold.

As tiredness got the better of me last night before I'd even shot an image I've had to go to the archives again.
This was Stirling Moss during a nautograph signing session at Knockhill's Classic Speed Fair in July 2007.

Sunday seemed a rather apt day to post this image. This is a section of one of the four banks of stops from the organ my mother used to play in a church in Kilmarnock before it ceased to be a church. They parted company from the rest of the organ a number of weeks ago, hence the "out of context" background.

Now, I obviously didn't take this shot today so it's a bit of a cheat really as far as pure 365 blogs go, but at least it is a new image for the blog for today. This was taken at Leuchars in September 2006. A roasting hot day, shooting towards sunlight diffused by a light low cloud and heat haze. Went home with a bag load of great shots and a rather lop-sided pattern of sunburn on my face, despite laying the high-factor protection on often.

This CALMAC ferry - The Clansman - had been in dock for repairs for a few weeks and inched its way (quite literally) out through a very narrow harbour opening - took about 45 mins for it to pass through. Then it went right back in. Mystery.

I really wish I had a proper and decent macro lens. Anyway, I make do meantime with the macro facility on my compact. This screw comes loose far too frequently - really must get it sorted out. I thought it made an interesting if not the most exciting study in close-up.
Olympus SP500-UZ; Auto; Macro. Nasty flash: nasty shadow!
This is a development of an image shot on my evening of smoke experimentation. Although not shot today, the image you see here was devised today. It was created by chopping a section from one of my my smoke images then, after a series of reflections and rotations, inverting the entire image.
I think it has quite a pleasing effect. Look out for more of this somewhere.
NOTE: I just noticed a flaw after posting. Think of it as one of those little artefacts that creep into many original creations.
