Rhubarb, Celery and Pomegranate

fruity triptych
What a lot of fun I have had today photographing fruit on my lightbox.  I liked the colours of this particular combination of healthy food.

My little A4 lightbox was a nice investment.  I think it set me back £50 but it has repaid every penny.

I love the curliness of rhubarb and celery strings.

And the rhubarb’s bold, graphic stripes.

And best of all, the fridge is now full of delicious fruit for endless weekend snacking.  More foody madness tomorrow.

Moongazing Concorde

Instead of a moongazing hare, a moongazing concorde.  Except that its windows/eyes are covered in snow.

Weybridge

This 40% model of the famous aircraft used to be at the entrance to Heathrow Airport but, with the demise of its full sized brethren, the model was decommissioned.  It now stands sentinel at the entrance to Brooklands Museum and Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey.

My first exhibition

I am excited to have some of my images included in this forthcoming exhibition. If you are in the neighbourhood, I would love it if you could pop by.  Follow this link for more information.

I don’t yet know which images have been selected by the exhibition curators.  Here are a few of the possibilities:

Dorset

Last Light at Kimmeridge

Dorset

The Cobb at Lyme

Northumberland

Dunstanburgh Castle

cityscape

View from City Point, Moorgate.

East Sussex

Storm Approaching Birling Gap

Lyme Regis

Cobb Cottages

Jersey

Blue hour, La Corbiere

If my images don’t float your boat, there will be lots of others that might, and some beautiful paintings and sculpture.

I would dearly love to photograph butterflies in flight but this is no easy task.  Their flight path is ridiculously erratic and their wings flap right over their heads making focus on the eyes almost impossible.

It’s teasing me

I tried to capture this one for a long time one day last summer.  I can almost imagine it’s looking at me thinking: shall I, shan’t I?

Seriously dodgy, but it’s a start

This is the best shot I got that day.  Yes, it’s not terribly good, but at least you can tell it’s a butterfly 😉  I will try again this year. Although I have planted for insects, my garden sees very few butterflies, but a wildflower park has recently been planted not too far away and it will hopefully be open to the public for the first time this spring.  Come on Spring, hurry up!
