Today Aujourd’hui: my mon village

Today Aujourd'hui: my mon village

Mon petit village. My little village. Hesitate to put it up because it wants to be big so as to play on the depth of field….
It is nice to be able to process an image so quickly…probably dangerous too.;generally speaking I try to live with my photos a bit before posting them.

Anything but a desert: Northumberland.

Anything but a desert: Northumberland.

How not to think of those famous straight roads stretching into the desert …This is what I love about Northumberland, the feeling of space,the big skies, the lovingly farmed land, the little roads. Colour is starting to grab my attention whereas for most of my photographic life it was a stepping stone to black and white.

Failing light, last day of May 2013. Colour on my mind. For years I only used black and white film: working in colour was an aspiration I rarely had and budget I couldn’t  afford. Digital has changed all that. I surprise myself looking more at colour …it’s a harmless enough picture but faithful to my attachment to “little landscapes” and yes those were the colours I saw.

Tokyo 1990 Kodak Slide Film

I’ve always loved this photo that has a feeling of being taken on a movie set. Very slow slide film, barely got away with this hand held shot. pleased I’d brought some colour film on this very personal trip.

Home from school


A glorious day and it’s time to head home from school. FujiX100. 2012 I rarely produce colour.  Here they’re not true but I find they fit the bill.
