Into the Heart
One of the things I really love about photography is that no shot is perfect - there's always room for improvement and always something that I want to change. Some of you may remember my previous headshot of the urban red fox cub 'Dusty', and at the time I was really pleased with it (I'd tried for a while to get close enough in a pose that worked). As much as I liked it there was always things I'd change about it (the most annoying thing being the lack of symmetry with his legs..) and so when the opportunity came up again last week I jumped at the chance to correct some of my mistakes. The result is by no means perfect, but personally I much prefer it to my last attempt! What do you think? :)

Dark Side by Chikrata

Has been given a DD!! I honestly never thought I'd get one of those, so I am truly stunned. Thank you to anyone who suggested and to Kaz-D for featuring it! I'm a very happy guy this morning!

As many of you have seen I'm not as active here as I once was, but hopefully that's starting to change as I come back, and hopefully more to come in the very near future. Thanks to everyone who's stuck with me for my rather extended hiatus :) .
