Texture Tuesday – Organic

“Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.”

Finally my website is up and running, it really isn’t for the faint hearted. It’s still not right but at least people can now leave comments.

The last week or so I’ve been concentrating on more dramatic, organic images. Rich, vibrant tones with high clarity.

One of Kim’s prompts in BeStill52 was to shoot some freshly baked bread, for some reason I really couldn’t get what I wanted. I’m not good with prompts, I’m still that impulsive photographer that shoots from the hip ! The bread was cranberry and pecan from Marks and Spencer very tasty and great with a strong cheddar cheese.

The gardens at Hestercombe House are full of autumnal colour.


Finally playing with apples on my gorgeous wooden background.



Thanks for visiting.

  1. Well, it was worth all the hard work, because this looks absolutely fantastic now. Beautiful design, all the functionality you were aiming for – just perfect! And these are all lovely photos too.
    I’m so proud of you.


  2. So happy I can leave a comment to tell you how wonderful your new site is — header, design, everything! And the images in this post are nothing short of amazing. So incredibly crisp and detailed yet moody too. The bread one is terrific! The way you caught the shadows in the tea — wow! Only onwards and upwards now, Viv. Great work. Congrats to you and Mark!


  3. I always enjoy hearing the back story – how you are evolving as an artist, what you are working on now, and seeing the results. Love the earthy, organic, higher contrast/clarity look. My favorites of today – the bread and the garden gate view. Gorgeous tones and depth in both images. New website is a joy to visit!


  4. Lovely photos. I struggle with those prompts too, even though I like a starting point, it also somehow ties my hands on creativity. Congrats. on the new site.


  5. Congratulations on your new site! That garden gate is lovely.

    I would say half my shots are planned, the other half are spontaneous. Generally my planned ones are for prompts and the spontaneous when i am out and about and see something interesting.


  6. So many beautiful images! I love… the fall colors, the textures in your bread image and the wood under your apples. I have to admit I have no idea what a ‘conker case’ is, but he is very photogenic. 🙂


  7. It’s really hard to know where to start here Viv…but first, congratulations on your new web page…it looks lovely and yes, I’m sure it was not just a drop in the bucket fix up…that’s why I can’t move…
    Now, the bread, as far as I’m concerned all the bread and goodies from Marks and Spenser are delicious and just looking at this…reminds me of some great meals there…it is one of the only places that I felt comfortable going to eat by myself while Jim was working…perfect with the cheese and tea…
    I most especially love the apple photo…just so unique and creative…your juices are flowing my friend…great post.


  8. Beautiful images as always, Viv! I tried to leave you a comment on your new website the other day, and I don’t think it went through. Maybe I just didn’t see it. Anyway- I really love your clean, fresh new look! Makes me want to re-do my blog again!


  9. You did an awesome job! Your new blog looks wonderful! I really like your conkers picture. I’m not sure what we call those things over here. I didn’t grow up with them but they are all over my neighbors grass and ouch!! they hurt!


  10. Congrats on your new website, it’s great ! Love your photos, especially the bread, it looks truly delicious , the garden gate one is my favorite though, it’s beautiful 🙂


  11. I love your images, Viv. I love the somewhat hidden gate and the “daily bread” image. We have a restaurant nearby called Le Pain Quotidien. They make wonderful bread and serve delicious food.


  12. a great mix of images…like the apples on the rough table top…and I totally understand about prompts – especially the bread exercise…I went out of my way to find a different way to approach it…your site is looking good – I give you credit for tackling such a huge project!


  13. What a lovely collection of fall images. My favorite is the garden. So full and rich–extravagant in its beauty. All these have a rustic vintage feel that I love.
