I was out walking when I came across this item in a local garden, it peeked my curiosity as to why it was there, however on a closer inspection I realised it was a toy probably discarded by a child

I came across this chain on the ground whilst out walking and took this image using a black and white with the red selection setting.

I used an olloclip that fixes onto a phone and got right into the dandelion clock to get an abstract image of the seed.

I used an olloclip lens attachment on my phone and got right into the Dandelion clock and got this abstract image of the seeds

I took this in one of our local parks and used a telephoto lens to capture the detail in the flower but leave the background with some bokeh

I went out walking and came across these leaves which were virtually the last leaves on the tree I took the image using the black and white setting and the green selection.

I am quite fascinated with water and reflections and was excited to come across these big puddles in the board skating park the wind had dropped so the reflections were very clear and strong

my daughter actually gifted me these rose for Mothers Day and the hearts were printed in red on the outer petals these image is an unusual angle to take a floral pic but I wanted to make it a little different so I phototgraphed it using black and white with the red option added.

I took this Tree in a very heavy snow storm with my olympus tough and am very pleased that it has captured the snow beautifully

I took this image using Bracketing and merging the three images in light room I think the way it has picked up the detail overall makes it look a little illustrative

I took this image with a ipod using a magnifying macro lense attachment and was pleasantly surprised with the result

I used an olloclip attachment on my phone to capture the close up image of this flower

we spent the day exploring Bolton Abbey I like the way the stepping stones take you on a journey into the image and up to the priory

This is discarded building in an old allotment I was interested in the blue of the bucket and hose and set my camera on black and white with the blue selection.

I liked this image of the church with the red poppies dotted about, I set my camera on black andwhite with the red selection.I I added the blue in the sky in light room to give more interest in the sky.

I spent hours covering cardboard letters with small bracelets that I made using loom bands, I then used a clothe background and photographed each one individually and used photoshop to stitch them together.

I spotted this web in our local park a few years ago and came across it when i was looking through my files

I Liked the shapes of the two glasses and the yellow against the slight yellowing of the sun going down in the background i emphasized the yellow by using a one colour application on my camera

Covid has changed our lives over the last couple of years and for myself having to isolate totally removing myself from going out and exploring my surroundings I have spent time looking at abstract and macro images which I have found in my garden and as a result I find myself looking at more wild life and natural objects, and have discovered all over again the beauty that is found there.

I am still  very interested in objects that create an abstract pattern of shape and colour, and love finding the obscure. I have rediscovered the use of photoshop and discovered the use of light room which until recently had never really bothered to explore  I have always been particulary interested in water and reflections and very grateful to be able to go out and explore the area around me and look forward to be able to trave further afield.

I enjoy experimenting with photoshop and light room, I love digital cameras and some of the effects possible within the camera itself, in particular the black and white option with the selective colour option, and I love the instant access possible so much easier to see results of the image being shot.

I like to experiment with using different media as a base for an image such as drawing and painting and scanned objects.
