V2 Photo 28 Lake District 1 – Sculpture

I’m on holiday this week in the Lake District, Cumbria, UK. Fantastic weather, great scenery and very relaxed. Not much access to computers and internet, so will play catch up on Sunday and next week! In the meantime here’s a little taster…this sculpture by Walter Bailey is in the garden of our Lake District boutique hotel, Summer Hill Country House. Fabulous…

V2 Photo 27 ‘Staircase’

Today’s image is an interior of a museum staircase in Lincoln, UK. Stairs are a good metaphor for life and journeys. This shot is descending into a darkened foreboding environment. Just like life, you’re not sure what’s round the corner. However, once at the bottom, the return journey is upward into the light.

V2 Photo 26 ‘Swan On The Move’

Taken in Sutton Park National Nature Reserve (near Birmingham, West Midlands), today’s image gives a different perspective of a swan from the one we might normally observe.

V2 Photo 22 ‘Snail On My Window’

Today’s photo is of a snail, snapped at home on my kitchen window in Lincoln, UK. I didn’t need a tripod or fast shutter speed to catch this fella!
