These images show detail of a handmade cushion by Scotish artist Jo Gallant. She is based in Kirkcudbright and you can see her work [here]. I have never dared to put this cushion anywhere near a chair though, it’s far too precious.
I made this not-so-waterproof felt vase on a feltmaking weekend hosted by a cumbrian artist Dianne Standen.
These are the first photos I have taken that I feel are complete shots. Unless landscape and nature shots are really quite stunning, they convey little emotion, and it’s going to take me a fair old time to get that good at landscape photography. These shots though, are conceptual, and I think that having the idea (i.e. adding the red rags), knowing a location and waiting for the right light, seems to build a stronger image than simply reacting to the environment.
I spent a rewarding day assisting a professional industrial and architectural photographer at the Children’s centre. This shot is from a series of semi-candid portrait shots of friendly young mums and their new born children, taken after the main architectural photography work was done.
Colin Down on ‘McMoab’ rock garden, Kirroughtree, 7stanes. The bike trail actually goes up this ridge of rock away from the camera position, then drops down steeply to the right of Colin. Not for the faint-hearted.
This is actually photo taken at the weekend, but since it took some image editing today, I figured it would be ok to use this as todays entry, just this once…
