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: Order

I find that military cemeteries and memorials are an attempt to bring order to the chaos of human conflict. The neat rows of uniform grave markers, the minimalist and tidy green space, they stand in contrast to what I perceive as the disruption and disorder of conflict.  On Memorial Day this year, the staff at...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Friend

It's been a busy week. Today it's back to England weather, but last week was gorgeous; my unprocessed photo folder overflows, a beautiful problem to have. This weekend included a walk with friends that went through a barley field: This panorama, taken on my iPhone, originally looked like this: The edited version was produced in... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

A few weeks ago I was visiting Salisbury Cathedral. The font they have is also a beautiful reflecting pool.  I created this image from the photos that I took: The font was created by William Pye and installed in the Cathedral in 2008. This link will take you to the website of the Cathedral which... Continue Reading →

What I Saw

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: Atop

If I'm headed into Cambridge from the park and ride, I always head to the front seat at the top of the bus.  This week, I was joined by a fellow passenger who stood for the whole ride in making "vroom-vroom" noises.  I just settled for making a photo: I shot this panorama on my...
