“There are places I’ll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I’ve loved them all
But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more
In my life– I love you more”
This is not a project, this is my life…

It’s the little things: Me…

It’s fast approaching 3 years since I picked up a camera and thought to myself, with a bit of dedication and work I can have a bit of fun with this.

I would never in a million years, guessed it would have lead to where it has…

Obsessed is one verb that I could use without challenge, lucky would be an adjective I’d throw in too.

But, on the plus side I have learnt to see so much more, to recognise the moments, even in some cases predict them (apologises to anyone following me when I make a sudden turn, walking or driving)

Now, I’m proud and humbled to say that I have prints on walls, that to me means that someone want’s my image to be a regular part of their life, that is mind blowing in itself.

The 3rd edition of Our Little Corner is selling well, it’s a calendar of the local area I’ve produced using my images and I donate 30% of the profits to a local charity.

I’ve also been commended in the Take A View, Landscape Photographer Of The Year competition which means my image appears in the 12 edition of the book. I’ve still got to pinch myself that my little image of a field is there in print along side some absolutely outstanding images.

So, on the whole, it’s going well, not enough to give up the day job but I’m happy with where I am and I’m looking forward to where I’m going.

Murmuration of Leaf…

I knew that this was going to be beautiful.

It’s just a small spot on a river on the outskirts of Salisbury but as the water passes beneath a bridge cause a “calm” area where, to the normal passage of time, the water looks almost still. A series of 17 shots  3 seconds apart and then blended in photoshop illustrate that it’s anything but…
