This weeks photography theme was green. There wasn’t a specific subject, just green. I didn’t want to just shoot images of leaves or grass, so I really left myself open. After breakfast noticed the way the light was coming in the dining room window and falling across the chair. The lines and deep contrast instantly caught my eye. I knew this had to be one of the shots. While I was at work I noticed the wheelbarrow we have behind the building.

Welcome to my new site! It’s been a while since I’ve kept a blog, and to be honest I have missed it. Most of what you’ll find here will be daily sketching and some random rambles and photography.

I also hope to … Continue reading Welcome to my new site!
