Working with light 1

Work with the light. Look at the situation and use what you have.

Here we are in Winchester around dusk in midwinter. The low cloud sweeps overhead and all is grey. It feels like rain.

Here I decided to contrast the statue with the sky and dispensed with colour altogether.

Big Moon

Full moon at Christmas. Apparently this is the first time for a long time.


No snow though.

Every culture has it's own standard of taste. Scandinavia favours the look of minimalism for instance. Clean plain lines and muted colours. 

The middle East and Asia has a very different set of ideas.

Get a load of this:

Oh, my eyes...

The black and white? 

The faded print? 

The absent people perhaps.
