Welcome to Week  15 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Spring for us and for our Northern Hemisphere participant - Autumn.

Magnolia in black and white for Photographer's choice 52 week photography project

Source: Week 11: Black and White I have written before how much I love Spring, the flowers, the colour, the new life and in particular my magnolia tree.

Thursday Doors – October 27 2016

iPhriday – Softer focus

It's Phriday again! Where do the weeks go? I took this photo while wandering around the garden during the week. I've been experimenting with the phone camera and editing features of some of my apps.

Mundane Monday Challenge – let’s light up the world!

Solar lights are very clever but not something I tend to photograph very often. I decided I'd feature one of my humble, yet colourful, solar lights to show it in a different light for Mundane Monday this week. I just love the crackle texture of these lights. The Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by PhoTrablogger and is a challenge created to …

Sally D's Mobile Photography Challenge has Macro as the theme for this week. I'm very surprised at the quality and clarity that the humble phone can produce.  I didn't do very much editing on this photo but did take quite a few shots trying to capture what I have dubbed 'the tendrils'. I'm not quite sure if I've …
