Smart Phone Photo Fun

A new Squidoo lens on using your smart phone for photos.

Yes, it is only a minor thing but hell I have fun with it!

That is, silly fun and some quite arty works, if I do say so myself. Click on the pic to see the article.

I have also been fortunate enough to have been featured recently in the Cityscapes and City Skylines Group with this picture:

Further to this, I will be featuring a few favourite works on this blog from other artists at RedBubble so that all can see what wonderful works they truly are.

More anon.

Ghost of an ideal dog

Ghost of an idea dog

You know, not a great shot as such but I like the textures rather a lot. And it has depth. It is almost a photo without a subject.


Searching for the next picture.

I feel something inside that urges me on to find a new depth to photography. It is not conscious yet, but I can think of musical equivilents, Uillean pipes, Aeolina harps, a tight drum beating out rhythms not quite repetetive but not quite random. Visual cues are mist, a sudden glance disappearing but leaving its imprint on the eye, corner-of-the-eye movement. The smell of cedarwood.
It’s a meditation and I hope to somehow find these photos and when I do I will be a hunter.

This is what I’m thinking, anyway.


The photographer’s best friend!

It’s a beautiful rainy day so I think that I shall take my camera for a walk.  Rain is the photographer’s best friend, in my opinion; the mood it creates, the shine and the overall diffuse light of a cloudy day are wonderful, and if the sun comes out then the light contrasts are fantastic!
