another early morning

Woke at 5 this morning which is better than 4 I suppose but not as good as 6..anyway thought I would wander and wonder at the wonderful wonders of the early morning..the waning moon was the first thing to greet me as I crept out of the back door, she was looking very pale afterContinue reading “another early morning”

beautiful disaster

I just had to get a shot of these fabulous legs while I was out ‘on the streets’ in Manchester..how could I resist, I did manage to make out the words ‘beautiful disaster’ tattooed just below her bottom and loved the guy sitting on the steps with the expression of not really knowing where toContinue reading “beautiful disaster”

My brother Simon and Scotland

Years ago I asked my brother Simon why he loved exploring Scotland so much… after a short pause his answer was simple -“God lives there”- and I think he’s right. Like everyone I love sunrises and sunsets but very rarely photograph them because am usually in awe of the beauty and know that a photographContinue reading “My brother Simon and Scotland”

Music & Movement …staying connected

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Connected.” A music genre completely unknown to me until last week was the soundtrack to a recent photoshoot held in the art studio of a friend.

Was there early morning to empty bookcases and shelves and move furniture, weContinue reading “decorating …and the space where the picture was”

Tate Modern & reading

A recent trip to London saw me taking hundreds of photographs of tourist spots, works of art and all the usual stuff one shoots when in our beautiful capital but these two images are among my favorites mainly because they’re taken at The Tate Modern.. this first one because it shows that book shops willContinue reading “Tate Modern & reading”

roadside

Driving down a country lane near home recently I noticed the verge was in full bloom and asked my long suffering very supportive husband to stop the car while I rummaged through bags trying to find the right lens.           Risking life and limb on the roadside while cars flew past atContinue reading “roadside”

Another serendipitous moment

Sometimes things just happen in photography and I know the moment I press the shutter button I have caught my ‘image of the day’ . I couldn’t believe my luck when on a recent trip to London to photograph urban art I spotted this guy and everything fell in to place…the door artwork by ‘skeletoncardboard’Continue reading “Another serendipitous moment”
