What I’m listening to a wonderful Bristolian musician Jim Moray listen HERE

Its been some time since I have written a blog post about anything other than photography and digital art. I supppose it is because now my focus has turned towards creating rather than writing. I find I can express myself more fully through photography than anything else.

I hope to turn towards more contemplative work as the year progresses. To me my pictures can express my feelings far better than words.

The sight of a sun flare, a seagull on a post, some rusty chains all these can express in me some reaction or emotion. Project Life is a great way to document daily life, my artistic work leans more to expressing an emotion. And then there is landscape and urban photography, so many choices.

Bristol wall art…

 

 

I don’t think I will ever be able to concentrate fully on any particular genre I am a definitely ‘go with the flow’ type. I still ‘shoot from the hip’ that is why my most spontaneous shots are my favourites.

Starring today is the wonderful city of Bristol, it has just become European Green Capital for 2015. Full of history and vibrancy, both alternative and arty, home of Banksy. Both of my  children will be living there soon so I hope to explore more. As a taster check this out HERE

  1. Lovely photos, Viv. I know exactly what you mean: a picture is worth a thousand words, as they say. And I also share your love of Bristol. It’s got a relaxed, arty vibe that we would do well to grab some of up here in London. All the best, Bonny

  2. Bristol looks just like the kind of place I’d like to visit. Maybe someday you can give me a tour … So glad your kids will be settling there, sounds magnificent. Like you, I often think my ‘off the hip’ shots are the best, probably because they have some memory attached to them. As for Campbell, would be Photography Prodigy … she’s hot and cold. If and when she ever decides to stick with it {and she is only 7}, I think she’ll be dynamite. Thank you for your kind words.

  3. Bristol is certainly a quaint, picturesque place! I especially like the second image with the sunlight on the water. I know what you mean about expressing yourself with your camera. I’m always happier with camera in hand when I’m touring scenic places.
