scream re-imagined

8 Tags 0 Comments Leave a comment

Playing about with the slow shutter app on my phone and learning to manipulate how I am making the images a little more, I created this curious screaming figure emerging from a bright pink box. I think the figure is obviously horrified that it has been stuck in something so pink and is screaming in Read More

light works

11 Tags 0 Comments Leave a comment

I have found a new toy that lets me play with light and make it into pictures (at this point I need the love heart emoji to fill this line with. Mmmmmm, it really is dreamy). It’s sooooooooo much fun and creates the best pieces of abstraction filled with colour and light. To say I’m Read More

Bang, half paying attention to the box in the corner chattering away to itself whilst pinning more gorgeous pictures on my pinboards, mooning over the deliciousness of them all and out of nowhere, someone says a line on a tv programme that has instantly conjured up an image that I need to make. Inspiration really Read More

I’m not sure these images really need any accompanying words. Sometimes the image just speaks for itself. Feel the air across you cheek and smell the briney air as it hits your nose…..

tones of grey

Cooking the other evening I noticed the light over the hob had created this beautiful square of hazy grey tones and within it, a deliciously centred triangle. The gentle layers have naturally formed a brilliant composition that had I tried to make this image out of light and its resulting shadows knowingly, I would have Read More

patience

I have been walking on the beach trying to capture the wings outstretched glory of the cormorant saluting the morning and the rising sun for the best part of six weeks now. Every morning and evening. The little cheekies have been sat all over the pier wafting their wings at me and the sky. They Read More

playing about on the iphone

8 Tags 0 Comments Leave a comment

I love sitting of an evening and having a play about with the different editing apps on the iphone. There are some totally amazing ones which have the ability to help you make some ace images when you don’t have the first bit of knowledge about anything to do with design software on the Mac.

shape, colour and general yumminess

My eye this summer has been caught by the most random seeming of things. A pineapple in all its spikey, yellow and green gorgeousness. The inside of a watermelon, that when I sliced it down the middle, had so much pink, fleshy goodness my eyes almost melted when I saw it laid out against the Read More

cloud spotting

Does anybody else look up to the sky and sometimes spot the most incredible shapes in the clouds? I’ve seen horses galloping across the blue chased by fire breathing dragons, a fish with a turtle in a jolly hat riding its back and even a straight forward cup and saucer. The kids love cloud spotting Read More

With the advent of gala season on us again. The prospect of sitting poolside for days on end, waiting for Middlers races to happen reminds me of the photographs I took at the last gala I attended in July. I can’t just sit there staring into space ALL day so I use as much of Read More
