I found these dasies quite close to where I live, peeking out of the hedge. They remind me of childhood drawings of flowers, with pure whites and warm sun-yellows, which contrast nicely with the deep green of the hedge. I love looking at the details on the foreground daisy!
Like most people, my outdoor photography has been restricted by the lock-down. Which is why I have been posting pictures of things I’ve seen on my exercise walks. I could post things from the past – places I’ve been – but it feels irrelvant at the moment. This is a picture of some leaves onContinue reading “Leaves, West Sussex”
As a picturesque city, popular with tourists, Bath has a number of small museums. The Holbourne Museum is probably the prettiest of all of them. A few years ago it had a major renovation and now boasts a very attractive cafe with views of Sydney Gardens and the canal. They regularly host medium sized exhibitionsContinue reading “Gnomes! Bath”
My favourite thing to do, if I go somewhere on holiday, is to spend time just wandering around. If you ever go to Osaka, chances are you will have a list of attractions you want to see (Osaka Castle, the Osaka Aquarium…), but I nearly always find that the journey there is more interesting thanContinue reading “Lasts, Osaka”
How do you feel about symmetry? The waterlily is placed on thirds in the frame, but in itself symmetrical. For myself, I find symmetry rather unsettling – like a bow tie – so I like things to be slightly different.
Another leaf photo! I’m not sure the species of tree this is – perhaps maple (it has a 5 finger leaf), but I remember thinking how beautiful it looked. On anything but the calmest of days, closeups are hard to photograph because of subject movement. I took this photo in People’s Park which is oneContinue reading “Leaves, Shanghai”
Not a big picture, but I still like it. Lake Ilopango is a formed in the mouth of a dormant volcano. I went scuba diving there once, but on this occasion, it was a cruise amongst the water hyacinths. As you can see a friend dipped her feet in water making a little plume asContinue reading “Feet in the Water, El Salvador”
There was a time, when I used to travel by plane quite a bit, mostly short haul within South-East Asia. Most of the life to be seen was outside the window- hence my hundreds of views from above photos, but sometimes funny moments happened on the plane. My neighbour and I never really did meet.Continue reading “Under the Seat, Vietnam”
Most people go to Nara to see deer and/or temples (I might share some photos of those another time). I believe I was walking to an art gallery when I saw this tree in the car park. Not sure the photo really does the tree justice – but it really was lovely.
Lynx, Shanghai Zoo, China 2020 I went to Shanghai Zoo to see the red pandas, but on the way, I looked in on the big cats. The leopards had their backs turned, as they often do, but here as you see, the lynx was quietly cleaning itself oblivious to passers by (including me). On thisContinue reading “Lynx, Shanghai”
