Misplaced

One of the things that fascinates me is some of the items that I find strewn upon the ground next to busy A roads. It’s also heartbreaking to think that so many people find it acceptable to dump their rubbish wherever they like.

Entanglement

Sometimes being a little introverted is a good thing, it allows you step back, then wait and watch as it’s the little things, those little details that are important..

Boston West End

Testing out the lightbox my mum gave me for Christmas and the delightful toy delivery van is from a collection of toys that my husband has kept from his childhood.

I  found using the lightbox a lot more difficult than I initially thought but after a little experimentation with differing light sources and positioning, I eventually got some half decent results.

Waiting by the Roadside

I’m sure I’m not the only photographer that stops and abandons my car when I spot something unusual that I just have to get a shot of there and then.

This moss ladened chair was on the grass verge by the main road that runs through the village of Ellastone in Staffordshire.
