 Oxford, UK

I loved the mystery of this doorway when we visited Oxford.  It leads to one of the colleges, can’t remember which one, but my eyes were lead to the frame within a frame within a frame etc! You can see the original here.

Coonawarra, South Australia

And this tree just yelled out to have its’ photo taken.  Ahhhh the Australian countryside… one day I’ll get there!

You may wonder why they look this way??? I’m trying a new technique.  I’m not so good at sketching so I’m planning to use my skills as a photographer and ability to operate a computer (???) to come up with some original artwork.  I’ll be adding to the digitally altered images with mixed media bits and pieces.   All I need now is the time to actually practise these techniques and then I might actually have something to show for my brilliant ideas!!

And this one is the result of a special request from my loveliest old school friend Soph…

There is a reason photographers won’t work with children or animals.  this took a while, lots of burbs (dave the golden retriever has a wind problem) and copeous numbers of “sit, drop, stay’s” to achieve.

and then tilly got jealous…

“ahhh dad, i can’t seem to see anything”
