and two of Stephen’s Spanish photos
Kissing trains and mirrored buses
An extraordinary number of curves, lines and reflections in these two photos
Through train window
Touch of the Busby Berkeley – shiny floor, synchro legs, soft focus and all
Curves and arches with the odd pair of legs
Been exercising, carefully and am now ready to ‘get back on the horse’ of the intensive hobby kind – (must do some today but on cat duty). However, got so absorbed with the photo archive that I’d like to continue sharing the odd ones, once in a while.
A splash of summer
at least in my mind’s eye
Images from Crete. We’ve visited three or four times over the years and loved the landscape and the people. These are just picked at random but I think many may be from Rethymnon, around the harbour area and others are on the road or in the accommodation. They are a mix of natural objects, line and shadow studies and personal shots – hope they help keep you warm.
As before, there are more photos in the gallery than appear on the page so if you click on the first one you can scroll across the full gallery.
I hope those of us in need of summer feel a little more relaxed and warmer?
It’s been a lovely sunny day but, being greedy, it just made me long for summer warmth and colour, so here’s a little of what I could find to add cheer and warmth. For a number of years I let the greenhouse run riot and enjoyed close up investigation of its inhabitants.
Veins and lines
(click on pic to enlarge – this layout transferred ‘outside the box’ from its original home but I reckon the overhang works)
Frills, freckles and furbelows
and the lined, pimpled and freckled queen/king, in a dark, damp corner beneath the plants
Still not bouncing sufficiently for getting down to serious workings so have been sorting out old CDs containing now defunct computer contents. Along with old teaching stuff are many photos, plenty containing good memories and others that I’d prefer not to see. I’m re-storing the happier ones and would like to offer up the odd one now and then to share.
We’ve always taken pics of around and about as there’s plenty to record here, long vistas and rolling hills, but my particular preference is for close up detail. My favourite items are usually plant, stone, insect or animal.
With apologies to those who don’t like insects, here’s four of the photos that are still lying around. They’re probably from the period when I was using a Minolta Dimage S414 and/or a Fuji Finepix (can’t recall model).
This dung beetle was totally absorbed with its task and I lay there right next to it taking photos for quite some time. Such concentrated effort.
I should have read this first one years ago:
