Weekly Photo Challenge – Broken

Tags : 

I found this broken tree on the grounds of a lovely manor house in England, Croft Castle, when I was there in the summer of 2013. Croft Castle is located near the village of Yarpole in Herefordshire. I don’t know how long it had been lying there, but I thought it created a beautiful rustic image.

I realize that Niagara Falls is a well-known and visited area, both the US and Canadian side, but I felt it was the perfect fit for this week’s challenge. This image was taken last summer when I lived in Burlington which is only a 40 minute drive away. The boat in the photograph is the

Weekly Photo Challenge – Early Bird

Tags : 

I have to be honest I am more of a night owl, but when I was visiting Newquay, Devon with my mum and dad I did grab my camera and head off to the beach at around 7:00 a.m. There were only two other people who had the same idea, which was nice, as it

Weekly Photo Challenge – Blur

Tags : 

I always loved the way the blurred photo of these Cuban Dancers turned out. I felt it gave the image energy, albeit most of the content was left to the imagination. Thanks to this week’s Photo Challenge I have a great excuse to share it. Related articles across the web Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur Weekly Photo

Weekly Photo Challenge – Fresh

Many images sprang to mind for this week’s Photo Challenge, but I decided to go with a simple shot of fruit. Raspberries are one of my favourites and these raspberries were growing along the side of a country road in Shropshire, England. Great reminder that the warmer weather is on it’s way.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Rule of Thirds

I have not had the time to post anything for weeks so I am truly delighted to be able to participate in this week’s photo challenge. This photograph was taken at Niagara Falls, but unfortunately this seagull was flying directly over the car park. Ugly tarmac was not something that I wanted as a background

Vintage Valentine

Tags : 

I love history of all kinds and I enjoy revitalizing really old, public domain, black and white photos. These images are usually very small and low quality but I have fun creating all kinds of art with them. I created this vintage valentine’s card from a 3.5″ x 4.5″ 1921 photo of a Russian ballerina so

Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself

Tags : 

This week’s photo challenge was definitely a chance to have some fun. The image above was a paper print out of my daughter and I having fun at a charity event, so I took this opportunity to create it in digital oils. The accessories we chose were definitely the right ones to express who we really

Weekly Photo Challenge – Serenity

Tags : 

For this week’s Photo Challenge I selected an image I created called Quiet Reflection (image cropped for post) as my take on serenity. I love being by water, sitting in a meadow, listening to classical music while I create art or read a book, which are all great ways to feel serene. But the winner is……after meditating I
