Thursday Doors: You have to look up to see the Door

There are some beautiful wooden doors at Ely Cathedral: The photo above was taken on the Octagon Tower tour so I was at eye level.  From the main floor of the cathedral though you would be forgiven for looking up and not realizing it was a door: Even with one open, from the floor it's not...

Thursday Doors: Secret Garden, Secret Door

I was enjoying a day out at Buckland Abbey and came across this lovely door: It's an entrance to a secret garden that is on the grounds.  Beautiful, but not really easy to photograph, lots of dark shadows.  Here is one of the original shots: The color of the flowers in the original is lovely but a...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta

If you are ever at Hampton Court Palace don't forget to look up. The Astronomical Clock, an imposing, functional work of art, was installed in 1540. Other than the time it also indicates high tide at London Bridge.  That's important if you are traveling by barge, as many members of the court at the time... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

As with most places I have lived, I know that I am only going to be here for a few years. It's an evanescent way of life, when you know you will be packing soon.  I think my photography sometimes captures that as well.  Last week, I took this image while out on a walk:... Continue Reading →

In case you thought it was safe to leave the house, my teenager will tell you it's not: Pictured above, a dinosaur, not my teenager.

Maybe this happens to you. You are looking at something and you see what is actually there, but in your mind you see something else. This happens to me a lot. When it comes to my photography it can create a bit of tension; part of me likes to record just the facts while another... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wish

I love technology, but only sometimes.  I think it would be accurate to call me a fair weather technology fan. This is especially true when it comes to social media.  I had been wondering for sometime, like ever since I signed up for an account, how to get my photos from Lightroom to Instagram. The...

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

I love exploring new places. Regular readers of this blog will know that the natural world holds a special place in my heart. Sometimes though the road I take leads me to photos like this one: I spotted this window last week as I was walking down the street in a new town.  It's not... Continue Reading →
