Aged - Thematic Photography
I could have just stayed in my office for this 'Aged' theme. After all everything will be modern when compared with what normally sits in a saucer on my desk. Ammonites (Cf to a Biro top) When it comes to buildings these two are fairly 'aged.' Church House ...

Kirkfest Scarecrows - 2015

Dinner Tables _ Thematic Photography
I thought that I was going to miss out on this theme until I checked my archives from some years back. Both photos relate to Christmas time - one in the USA and one in the UK. Table set in the USA UK Christmas I think the photographer had had a drop too muc...

Stuff That Grows - Thematic Photography
I've been looking for a theme for the A-Z Challenge for 2016 and have been considering wild flowers. This means that recently I have been out and about photographing a few things that grow.  Here's just a selection. Exposed tree roots. If you look closely y...
