Black & Light

Haven’t been able to get out with camera these last few days so was feeling sort of desperate late last night and having withdrawal symptoms, contemplating the ‘trilogy’.. aperture, shutter speeds & ISO and again muttering to self as I folded washing and wandered aimlessly around unable to sleep…BUT…yes, another BUT…as I wandered and wondered andContinue reading “Black & Light”

A simple thing beautiful to me

The sun came out briefly today so grabbed camera and practically ran down to St Annes …well, I caught the bus but it only took 20 mins…anyway wandered about, lots of images on the prom, on the beach the pier etc lots of the same old thing and wasn’t feeling particularly inspired till I gotContinue reading “A simple thing beautiful to me”

Not sure if this guy was with any of the kids but he walked along the beach and stopped just behind the donkeys. He didn’t speak to anyone justContinue reading “sinister on the beach”

Dress Code

With the right advertising and in the right setting an everyday ordinary object such as a coat hanger can become an extraordinary piece of art. Found while out on the streets of London…how could I resist? In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “(Extra)ordinary.”

Fish & Chips and a public loo

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.” A friend and I were out and about in Blackpool today..searching for my lost mojo and Blackpool is home and always a place that makes me happy..we decided to get some lunch… a quick lunch so fish and chips was decided and off weContinue reading “Fish & Chips and a public loo”

A window on the green this morning

I think this is the last post for today but will probably be up in the middle of the night again tonight and weather permitting will probably wander down to the prom…shame I don’t drive or would probably go farther afield..
