more trees

I like doing pictures of trees. They tend to just stand there, waiting for me to sort myself out, unlike some other subjects. And out of the twenty or thirty or so 'experimental' pictures I took on this walk, I think there were actually two quite good ones. Experimental probably isn't the right word for...

millook cliffs

I was doodling around on the social site Mastodon when I saw a very familiar sight. Someone had posted a shot of the fabulous Millook cliffs, and talked in his post about how he had waited for a woman walking up the beach to enter the frame, to give an idea of the scale of... Continue Reading →

white poppy

I have an account on the social network that is making headlines at the moment. Mastodon, previously a little-known geek project (certainly was when I first tried it in 2017 anyway), is growing rapidly due to the meltdown of Twitter and its new owner, and a huge escaping herd of tweeters are migrating that way...

some days, some views

As you can probably tell if you have visited me before, I do like to mainly shoot and present my pictures in black and white.
