Is it just me?

How do you pass the time as a passenger on a long journey? Is it just me who sometimes uses the time to experiment taking photos? Car journey’s, train journey’s make perfect time for this. I play with different settings on the camera, use the time to learn and explore. I love the abstract blur... Continue Reading →

Coast

Living in the UK we are fortunate to be no further than 70 miles from a coastline. And Britain has the most glorious coastline and coastal paths. This weekend I walked a very small part of the West Somerset Coastal Path to take in some of the incredible views of the Bristol Channel. We left... Continue Reading →

Signs

  Have you ever asked the universe for a sign? I have and love it. I really don't know how it works but it does for me. It's like having a loving hand giving yours a reassuring squeeze. Your sign can be anything you choose and probably best not to overthink it. It can be... Continue Reading →

Creativity

Today I have feeding my soul. I have been allowing myself to play. Some years ago as part of my final project for my art degree I obtained, from eBay, various job lots of ephemera, photographs and photographic slides. It formed the basis on my work at the time. I was looking at how technology... Continue Reading →

New habits

Day 8...... Today I have no email prompt. I have completed the 7 day challenge and through the process I have learned many things, one being that I am beginning to create the habit of writing a blog. Now, ok, I was actually writing my personal journal every day, my collection of random thoughts and... Continue Reading →
