Angles, Light and Shade……

This week has barely started but it feels like it should be drawing to a close.  And it’s only Tuesday.  I tried approaching today from a different angle, I worked minimally from home today (lucky that I could) and got a few things out of the way that needed to done. I did important  things like baking a cake.  I tried to get some space in my head. I craved warm sun (didn’t get any!). I made lists. I tried to look at things from a different perspective.

I’m revisiting these two images as they incorporate angles, light and shade – just sums up my thoughts and feelings today.

Simply Sunday….Self Portrait #2 unedited

DSC_0042 DSC_0103

I wouldn’t say I hate the way I look, it’s just that I am getting older, fatter, the double chin has appeared and I appear to forget to look in the mirror properly.  So it’s a shock to see myself as I am.   It’s easy when in the throes of a busy work schedule and a family to look after that you forget who you are and the importance of exercise, eating healthy and taking care of you.

These images are totally unedited.  Not that I would have used Photoshop anyhow (I don’t even own it!), just Lightroom to adjust light and dark and push colour in where necessary.  My main computer which has Lightroom on has a virus – hence the unedited.  I am happy though with the way I have captured the light, despite not being happy with me!

Taken with my Nikon D90 with a 35mm lens.

Cagliari, Sardinia in Monochrome….



We are just back from the beautiful city of Cagliari in Sardinia.  I was struck by its beauty – from the old narrow alleys in the infamous quarters of the city to the beautiful sunsets visible from high above.   There was beauty at every turn.

These first series of shots are all taken with my Nikon D90 with a standard 50 mm lens with little or no editing.


Weekend Inspiration…..Massimo Bartolini’s La Strada di Sotto

What better way to spend a rainy afternoon than a touch of retail therapy (UO, Topshop and Anthropologie always do the trick, even if it us just window shopping) and a visit to Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery to see the latest exhibition –  Massimo Bartolini’s La Strada di Sotto.  Simply stunning!
