In Celebration Of The Ordinary

I’m sure I’m not in alone in this but when I first became interested in photography I used to photograph everything I set eyes on, and I mean everything, no matter how boring or mundane that thing was. I even used to think that quite a lot of those pictures were OK, and I suppose […]

Something different

I’m very much a natural light photographer, partly because I just love to be outdoors as much as possible and partly because I prefer the more natural look. However I also think its great to try new things & learn new skills so at the weekend I went on a lighting course. Not only did […]

Blackpool through a Lensbaby

My last post was about my week in places beginning with B and I shared some of my phone pictures from the week. It’s been such a busy time since that it’s only today that I copied the pictures off my main camera – I say main camera because I was actually using three different […]

Little Bits of Buddhism

I’m just back home after spending a gloriously sunny weekend in Scotland – while we were there we spent a lovely relaxing afternoon at a Tibetan Buddhist centre in Eskdalemuir¬†a lovely place to spend a calming hour or two. Of course I took the camera but I always find myself drawn to the small details […]
