Friday a Rediscovery

Photography Blog

What I’m listening to  Natalie Merchant – House Carpenter’s Daughter

As the autumn moves into winter the urge to cuddle up with a cuppa and a book seems more attractive than getting blown apart and rained on. So on days when photography is not possible I hope to pull out some of my books and rediscover and learn. The little books are altered books that I created years ago when I was part of a Yahoo group. We would create some pages and then pass it on to the next one in the group. Finally your book would land on your mat full of beautiful art from people all over the world.




I hope to return to some form of hands on art over the winter even if it is just some background pages for scrapping.




Happy Friday…











Texture Tuesday – From the Archives.

Photography Blog

I thought I would go back through my archives from November 2013.


An old butcher’s bike (using kk_stamped) I love the texture of the brick wall.




This image was taken on a frosty clear morning before the terrible flooding that happened on the Somerset Levels


Taken with my iPhone I used kk_dollard_grunge.



I took this at last years Remembrance parade in Taunton. When 40 Commando along with Scouts, Explorers and members of the British Legion march through the town, and finish at the memorial in the park to lay poppy wreaths in memory of all those that have died in conflict.



And here is 40 Commando marching through Taunton.




Lest we forget







Texture Tuesday – Organic

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

Music I’m listening to Brian Finnegan – ‘The Ravishing Genius of Bones’.  Listen HERE

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.
