About

helenlinda

Welcome to my portfolio.

I joined this site in June 2007 and have gained so much from being here - advice, challenge and a supportive community when moving out of my comfort zone and stretching my skills.
I take most of my pictures in my locality in South Birmingham, and I digitally manipulate many of them - adding textures and combining images.
I see images in the most ordinary of places and love the effects of shadows, reflections and the weather. I hope you enjoy looking at some of my images, and that in so doing you begin to notice things that you hadn't seen before in the world around you Smile

Thanks for looking Smile

About

I have lived in Birmingham since coming here to study in 1969. I come from Finedon in Northamptonshire and still love the county of "spires and squires". I have now fully retired from teaching, giving me a lot more time for gardening. I have an interest in helping International Students to study the Bible and to feel at home in UK. I regularly visit Essex to visit my two grandsons. I have recently become a Samaritan volunteer. I belong to a number of daily photographic challenges on Facebook and am currently enjoying the challenge of minimalist photography .

Helen,
Finally found time to do your portfolio justice and have a good browse. Not sure what I enjoy most, your photographs, or the inspired creativity that you apply to seemingly simple images that results in such wonderful images! Had to do a portfolio comment, if I commented on each picture I liked I would be here for ages! But have added a vote to all my favourites!
kind regards,
Robin
