Northumberland: cows, gate and clouds  June 2013

in the mood for colour

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.

I like the hand on the wheel, the street cleaner in the back, the signs of all sorts, there’s even the trail of a plane in the sky…

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.

I wish it was summer but it’s not! Fujix100 . I don’t live there . It was about as hot as it gets for April, it felt good and of course some men were keen to show off. Not very fond of cameras this lot.
