Explosion !

Ok so today i decided i wanted a shot to symbolise the explosive week weve had in our family and this was the result , bottle top explosion.

Now to witter on a bit about this week for us ! ..... Welllll.... as a few know my youngest son (3 yrs) has speech issues and sees the speech therapist once a week , weve been working on individual sounds but this week she said he was doing well enough to now get proper words so thats a major acheievement and we are so so proud of the little dude !

then we had parents evening for our middle lad (12) it was the first high school parents evening for him and we found out he truely rocks ! at least a year ahead in all subjects :) !!

so this week has been a little explosive for us ! weve had many downs too but heck im celebrating my brilliant boys so im not going into the bad stuff haha !

hope everyones having a fab day , its a lazy sunday for us here :)
Very dynamic shot, I really like how that water is splashing. Faved.

Great photo to depict celebrating victories!
Never heard it used, but I so like that word "witter."
posted March 27th, 2011  
@kalexa haha ! to "witter on" is basically a way of saying im going to ramble rubbish that many would find uninteresting and probably wish id shut up haha !!!
i "witter" a lot hehe !

@pete21 @bec01 @janmaki

thankyou all :)

Love it. I am adding witter to my vocabulary!

Great stuff on the family front and spectacular shot! Checked your Exif data expecting really fast shutter speed but it isn't, it's faster ISO - did you set that yourself - I need to look through my shots to see if my ISO changes automatically or if I should be fiddling with it - oh the technical details clearly make all the difference if only I can get my head round the variables!
posted March 27th, 2011  
@judithg ~ i NEVEr play with shutter speed really :S mainly cos i dont understand the settings on my camera if im truely honest haha ! i swear anything that goes right is a fluke :( hehe ! ..... ermmm the ISO being at 400 is basically because i remember changing that for summin else and havent yet put it back (oppsies) i dont think its normally at 400 on my water shots , will go check LOL !
posted March 27th, 2011  
Fantastic
posted March 27th, 2011  
@judithg ~ ok so it loks like loads are at 400 ISO ! .... hmmm i really didnt realise that LOL ! .... im such a camera idiot that altho my cameras ok i really dont understand many of the settings i play till i get the result i want :) ..... u pointing out that it was ISO 400 will short cut my playing next time hehe ! so thankyou :)

@flamez You really make me laugh! Saying you don't know how to use your camera yet getting top marks with each and every pic. *lol* I still haven't tried any water shots - I think that will be next weekends project since you are so inspiring. :)

@blueburn11 ~ haha ! camera wise i cant tell u anymore than the EXIF info as i really just click away ...... but basically all i did was put a plastic coke bottle in the sink under a running tap , by tilting it this way then that way for a few mins i took loadsa snaps and when i uploaded found this mini cyclone one :) .... but its just a bottle in a sink , with the tap running :)
posted March 29th, 2011  
That twisting action is great! You definitely have your style down. I found this on the popular page and thought oh I bet that's flamez. Sure enough! :)

Love it. Faved in fact. How do you do such shots without getting water everywhere (especially all over the camera)?
posted April 3rd, 2011  
you're so good at this, brilliant shot and so sharp
posted April 3rd, 2011  
@herussell ~ Thankyou :) ..... i do in fact get water Everywhere haha ! theres a lot of towels surrounding the area now b4 i start (i learnt that quickly hehe) .... i dont get the water on the camera tho (well i havent yet) and all i do is test run and judge how far the water sprays before i pick the camera up , its just a matter of watching and seeing which area is least wet and shoot from that direction :)
