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

    Had a new toy delivered through the post this morning and went to the greenhouse to try it out in the rain. I've bought a monopod, and I think it will be a big help with camera shake. Its not always possible to set up a tripod in small areas, but I'...

  • The greenhouse effect

    It has taken a while to have an effect on me this year, but finally I got into the greenhouse today. What is particularly wonderful working in there is the light - and the music - as I have my little wind up radio to listen to classic FM as I work. ...

  • Using the grid for aligning pictures

    Happy New Year to anyone who happens to read this. I can't believe it was June since I last made an entry!! It amazes me that people still continue to view my blog, though no comments have been added. So I feel I need to add something worth reading...

  • "Feeds" in not too many easy steps

    Or "an idiots guide," as I now follow how to use them!! This may be so basic that everyone knows exactly what to do and are already using them. But for me it was just short of rocket science to discover, that I can have an extra column next to my f...

  • One World Week

    Well all the effort to draw together our one world week came off really well on Friday with a parade around the park. Every class had a huge flag and children came dressed in the colours of the flag, and marched round the park behind it. In addition ...

    I was talking to the Nursery children today about Ireland. They have been thinking about the countries in UK as part of our One World Week. I was holding a map up and explaining that the blue was water and the green was land. We then considered how...
