This has taken me a few days, as I kept picking it up and putting it down again, but I finished my line drawing of a bear that I started earlier this week... I do love drawing with pen, though it does take some getting used to, as the lines can sometimes appear very harsh … Continue reading Bear, Pen Drawing
The following photos were taken while walking around Cambridge with a friend - the ice rink in particular was great fun to observe!
On Boxing Day I watched the dinghies and keelboats racing from Waveney & Oulton Broad Yacht Club, and took a few photos. I couldn't resist getting a bit more creative with some of my photos, even using the reflections in the clubhouse windows!
Needing a bit of inspiration, I walked around Oulton Broad's Nicholas Everitt Park at the weekend with an idea of taking a few landscape photos of the autumn leaves and ice. As the sky clouded over, and the light faded, I found myself focusing instead on a group of squirrels that were congregating around a … Continue reading Squirrels!

In 2016, I entered the competition with a photo of a Great Horned Owl named Birkett (below), taken with my Samsung GX-1L camera: Although I didn't win anything, I did receive a lovely email commending me on my photo, which inspired me to have … Continue reading Photo Competition Success

Last year, on the 1st November, I started a 365-day Photography Project. The idea of this was to unlock some creative blocks and to get into the habit of taking photos again. Most of the photos were taken with a Sony smartphone, and I discovered so much more about the art of composition when taking … Continue reading A Year of Creative Photography…
Hallowe'en Pumpkin Carving (and pie!)... Following last year's owl carving (see: Hallowe’en Pumpkins and Pyrography…) I thought I'd have a go at creating a 'scaredy cat' silhouette...there were supposed to be a few more trees around it, but I got a bit carried away with the knife - oops! My housemate opted for a more … Continue reading A Trick and a Treat!
I was invited by a friend on Facebook to participate in the Seven Days…Seven Black and White Photos Challenge. This challenge is to post seven black and white photos of your life over a period of seven days. No people, no explanation, and to challenge someone new each day. I wasn't sure at first whether … Continue reading Seven Days, Seven B&W Photos Challenge
