Out of this world WordPress Photo Challenge

Oh my this week's challenge has me thinking of Spring... something that is Out of This World is the topic of this week's challenge and there is nothing like a walk in the woods to take you away from the troubles of the world. So for me.. after last week's bitterly cold days and being [...]

Silence WordPress Photo Challenge

There is nothing like snow... and here in the South East of England we occasionally see the odd flurry but we never have what I would call real snowfall.  Snowfall where places are blanketed from edge to edge with deep, white and crisp snow.  The theme for this week's challenge is Silence. And silence to [...]

Growth WordPress Photo Challenge

Well last year just seemed to fly by... and our photography took a back seat... now we are in 2018 and we are determined to get our photography back on track.  So for me with the WordPress Photo Challenge the topic of Growth has two meanings for me.

For my elemental subject I decided to use water. Water can be rough and choppy or reflective and calm.  And within a bat of an eyelid elements like wind and [...]

Textures WordPress Photo Challenge

Textures are all around us... whether it be leaves on the ground, or the bark on an old tree.  We don't have to look far before we find textures in a variety of objects. We can also add textures to an image to create more depth.. textures can come from many places, paving slabs, bricks, [...]

Satisfaction WordPress Photo Challenge

Satisfaction So what is satisfaction?  For me it is when I accomplish something that I only dreamed of.  Like taking a photograph and transforming it into something else. My original image was this deep cerise flower. Even though I liked the original image I wanted to create something different and the colour I had in [...]
