One Simple Thing…

I know I am jumping around a bit, I am trying to connect ‘live’ as well as play catch up with the class. Month 6 (wow already) is based on the Theme ‘One Simple Thing’. I shot this image months ago now, but I really wanted to have another go with this antique shoe horn…

Time to play…

Hello my Friends, i have not had much time to play until now, so play if did……….nothing of any significance, just some pretty pictures. This first one is just on the concrete floor in the studio.

Pretty in Pink….

This image was so simple, yet so soft and pretty at the same time. I found this set of very pretty patty cake (Cup cake) cases and bought them, along side the heart shaped candy cake decorations and a simple white peony, against white linen. I also ran a slight linen texture over the image…

Back to Nature & some Winter Leaves…

Photo Study…

Hello! There is merit and misfortune in photo studies, is there not? I love to look at other people’s images on Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, but I am loathe to put them on my posts, it seems everytime I do it, I get in trouble lol. I am not pinching their work or their ideas I…
