52 Week Challenge – Week 42

This week’s challenge was green. Green in Spring, that means fresh grass, leaves, gardens, there are pale green buds burgeoning and softest green flowers peaking through the trees and garden beds………..so I went into the studio, closed doors, curtains, turned off the lights and played with Christmas lights, martini glass and cocktails and long exposures…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Vibrant Colours

Tuesday’s Textures – PS Artistry

I started pulling in bits and pieces to play with these skull images, I honestly had no real idea of what I wanted and where they were going, they seemed to take on a life of their own; as my images so often do. They are slightly strange but have an almost alluring quality, very…
