Too many pictures

Too many pictures

One of the problems I find with photography is that I take an awful lot of pictures. When taking these flower close-ups 2 weeks ago I took a total of 138 photos. I have only used 13-14 of the photos I took that afternoon. It’s unlikely for me to go back and use any of the leftover pictures and I never tend to have the will power to just delete the rest or at least the blurry trashy ones. The…

Sunset in Marrakesh

Sunset in Marrakesh

Whist in Marrakesh in September and August I took these lovely sunset photos. Capturing sunsets is nice as it changes every few minutes and different clouds create different scenes. I’ve taken so many sunset photos but just seem to keep taking more and more.

Purple flowers and favourite colours

Purple flowers and favourite colours

I tend to think and say that my favorite colours are purple and green. In reality, I think I like all colours just different colours for different things, for example, I wouldn’t want a green phone case but green walls or notebooks are nice, depending on the shade of course.

Is December really winter

Is December really winter

I wonder what it would be like to move to the southern hemisphere, where December would then be the start of winter and June the start of summer.

This plant lacked water at one point and shrivelled up but now it started flowering again. I’m not sure if it’s going to burn itself out this winter and then stop flowering altogether. As it was a new addition to the garden this spring we don’t know…

Fluttering beauty

Fluttering beauty

Butterflys are far from being easy to photograph. They tend to flutter around randomly and are never stable enough for a picture. When they do decide to perch somewhere they like closing their wings hiding their beauty from spying lenses.

Through moving glass

Through moving glass

It’s very frustrating when you get stuck in a car, taxi or bus and there’s wonderful scenery outside just waiting for a picture. Photography through glass just never works out the same, especially moving glass.

Like a toy

Like a toy

I tend to find that when your in a plane looking down at the world, it some how doesn’t feel real. It appears virtual and out of your reach, but also it is as though you could just put your hand out and move it around like a toy.
