PRIMAVERA

Sunshine,blue sky and at an abundant floating bubble of frog spawn.These images were taken with a Hauwei 30 mobile as I wanted to quickly capture these abstract images before the sunshine disappeared,( As you know how rapidly Manchester weather can change.)
I was initially intent on capturing the frog spawn but then became aware of how abstract the shots were due to the reflection and bright colours.I hope you enjoy these photos and are to also enjoy sunshine and hopefully the first signs of Spring.

I have just noticed that blue and yellow are the predominant colours in these images ,so lets hope for peace in the Ukraine.

Reasons to be cheerful part three

A week off, time to catch up with family and friends, and walks in the sunshine with Roma. It’s so good to have a week off to reflect, re-charge and be inspired…..time for my camera, start a new book and basically be me.
Towards the end of the week my hair was also recharged with a fresh burst of colour, and for once I actually was going out that evening. This was thanks to my lovely Sister and Brother-in law, as we put the money aside they gave us for Christmas towards a romantic meal. So off we popped  to the Indian Tiffin Room for a tasty meal. Tiffin serves South Indian street style dishes which have very moreish and distinct flavours, (The Dosas are  amazing). After feeling totally stuffed we managed to enjoy a few drinks , chat about  nonsense and new ideas ,in Brezo what a fab night with my soul mate.

On the Sunday we were then ventured through unexpected fog down the M62 to Crosby, (With Roma in tow of course), to see Anthony Gormley’s Another Place, and we saw something else which was a total surprise…….wait until my next post to find out more.

 

 

 

My mum loved daffodils so I always capture these thinking of her and smile

 

 

I came across a beautiful Silver Birch tree  in the cemetery near us  and was fascinated by it’s colours and textures .

While focusing upon the different shapes and textures I noticed this gem hidden in the crux of the branches….beautiful

 

Roma muddy and wet as ever

Fast Forward Into Spring

At last the onset of more daylight and the hope of sunny evenings after work. These photographs  try to capture the new vitality of Spring life and also explore the beautiful form and textures. Don’t forget to put your clocks forward on Easter Sunday, and Happy Easter.
