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. But some days and some views - especially if the seas are spectacularly blue - need the colour left in them. This view is looking south on Cornwall's Atlantic north... Continue Reading →

Hope you like the titling technique... If you can't think of a good title, just take a few relevant words and smash them together (hat tip to 'Richard Osman's House of Games' Answer Smash round). Anyway, I chose to take my camera with me on one of my daily dog walks, although with low and... Continue Reading →

in praise of hawthorn

I like a gnarly old Hawthorn tree. They're a stoic kind of tree, not fussy about position and soil quality at all, seeming to just get on with doing their thing wherever they find themselves growing. Most don't end up being trees at all, just a constantly trimmed piece of a mixed hedgerow environment, so... Continue Reading →

title here

Just sitting here and thinking of some relevant wording to add to my pictures for this post. Don't mind me. Tell you what, I'll post the pictures for you to look at now, while I carry on and think of the angle I'm going to take for the text. As usual, you can click on... Continue Reading →

Not dead yet

I know. You have been wondering haven't you? It has been said --by me on my 'About Bear' page as it happens-- that "I do enjoy the creative outlet of my photography–it’s just more often in sporadic bursts of relative enthusiasm rather than a continuous drive."But five months, without even feeling like I want to...

Hawthorn Blossom Time

Always lovely to see the Hawthorn trees coming out in their spectacular blossoming, after a winter of them just showing off their--equally photogenic--twisting and gnarled, skeletal and austere-looking structure during their days of basic survival. This is what they hang on for, with their skewed and precarious looking positions, out in the windiest and harshest... Continue Reading →

Clifftop View

Wandering along the coastal path and looking down over the cliffs onto the breaking waves on the seas below. But perhaps not as straightforwardly photographed as it is described.

An Anniversary and Other News

It is the third anniversary of the day when this humble little blog, not really attended to with much in the way of care in the previous six or seven months, was featured on WordPress Discover. It went mad for a few days. Like from about 30 followers to 8 or 900 mad. Since then,... Continue Reading →

Back on the Beach

First time back on the beach. Post the initial 'too-late lockdown', after 'too early lockdown lift' and into lockdown again and before the seemingly incomprehensible tiers apply. Yesterday afternoon was pleasantly Covid and holiday-maker free. It was March 2020 the last time we set foot on here. Seems an age ago now but the pleasure... Continue Reading →
