Mother and Daughter

My mam doesn’t like her photograph taken.  She would only sit in the chair with her back to me whilst I took a mother and daughter portrait.  She asked to look at the photograph and then told me that I was very naughty.  She loves me really.

The House I Grew Up In

This is the house I grew up in.  My mam always stands at the door to wave goodbye.  Love you, miss you.  Her words to me as we hug and I leave.  I was 6 when we moved here.  She was 42. Now she’s 88.

There is Light…..

I discovered a new place today, a new place to walk.  And I fell in love all over again with my beautiful dene.  The world outside seemed to fade away and cease to exist and it was just me and Nature.  I was surrounded by this intense beauty, and I knew that this is where my journey was taking me.  I find such exquisiteness in Nature. It is so calming on the soul.  And I can think, there are no distractions as I follow this path, nothing to turn my head.  And every time I go there it is like cleansing the soul.   My only companion is my camera and through it I capture this world which is like no other.  Mysterious, full of light, and darkness, and so so powerful. Nature is such a wondrous thing.

Black and White

As much as I try something always draws me to a black and white photography.  I love the contrast.  I love how there is always light in the midst of the darkness. This is me happy, happy, happy.  And if only one person out there likes a photograph that I’ve taken then that makes me happy too.  Knowing that someone in another part of the world is looking at something that I’ve created and has taken the time to like it is pretty cool.

A Study in Black and White

Why do we love black and white so much?   I love to walk through the fields and the woods and see nature in all its glorious colour but I always convert my photographs to black and white.  Why?

I Am Obsessed

I am obsessed by paths.  Maybe it is because I believe that we are forever journeying through life, unsure of where our path will take us.  The mystery lies at the end.  What will we see, what will we find.  Enlightenment or not.
