Share your wisdom

even if your audience

seems disinterested at the time

Texture Tuesday – Down and Dirty

What I’m listening to Kathleen Edwards – from the album ‘Voyageur’  listen HERE

 When you are able to sit without any image or any sound, with an open mind, that is true practice. When you can do that, you are free from everything.

We took a trip to Bath on Sunday it’s an hour and a half from where we live, but we only visit every few months or so. Bath is a World Heritage Site and consequently it is always full of visitors so not very good for photographers unless you are a street photographer ! Then there are buskers, market stalls and all sorts of folk. They have the best craft and sewing shop called The Makery, where they run workshops and sell what I always call haberdashery such a great word, check them out HERE. Also Anthropologie has opened so of course we had to visit and I bought the cutest….. you’ll have to wait till Friday for that !

I went gritty with these images and used a Project Life template for speed, and Kim’s canvasback texture.

Be Still weeks 27, 28 and 29

It’s catch up time. For weeks 27, 28 and 29 I used the same chair with different props.

Using black foam core, Kim’s texture ‘magic film’ and a preset that I created called, ‘green bottle’. I had to use a tripod the light was very poor but I’m pleased with the outcome…

Weeks 28 and 29, 3 things a chair and side light.

A little felt heart I made, with a card from Liz Lamoreux and a pretty plaster heart I picked up on my travels. I used a preset I made called ‘chalk’ then into PS for a texture or two.

The light is coming from the right and I love the tiny bit of shadow on the cap. Again same preset and Kim’s texture ‘aurora’ a particular favourite.
