Palace Hub Gallery in Redcar

After a lot of thought I finally decided to submit some of my photographic work to the Palace Hub Gallery in Redcar to see if I could get some exhibited.

The series was photographs of Redcar beach on a wintery dawn, which gave a really lovely blue cast to the sky.

I’ve had three accepted for the group exhibition 🙂

This really means I have to get more work done on my website in preparation for these being shown, and to keep moving forward with my practice.

Annoyingly though I had forgotten that there was also an alternative process exhibition which I could have submitted Cyanotype images into.

Norfolk Winter ’14

We have just come back from a very quiet Christmas week in Blakeney.

Didn’t do much apart from enjoy the silence and wide skies.

Oh and we went out to see the seal pups.

AP Monthly Competition – October 2013

The theme this month was ‘The Old and the New’ and since it has been a busy month there are only two possibilities and both are from the archive.

I’m going to go with the architectural shot as there is more of a contrast between the new sculpture and the old bridge in the background.

AP Monthly Competition – September 2013

This months competition is ‘Reach for the Skies’

The sky is big. Your imagination is bigger. Skies and skylines are the gifts that keep on giving. You have many options here. Angle your camera upwards, create a pan-stitch, look out over the city skyline from the tallest building you can get legal access to or fill the frame with the bruised winter clouds – just as long as the sky is involved in some way.

I’ve quite a few from the archive and some newer ones, so here we go. Still not made my mind up though I’m leaning towards one of the first three, all from Newcastle.

Norfolk 2013

These photos are from our week in Norfolk, based in Blakeney. What a wonderful area, only really used the car twice, once to get our bearings and once to visit Norwich.

Walking, cycling, trips and really good food, all quite locally meant that there was no need to go very far from the cottage.

One of the best parts of the trip was eating at The Moorings in Blakeney, some of the best food I’ve had in a restaurant, in a really nice setting, great service and all at a reasonable price.

Will definitely be going back to Blakeney in the future.

Some of the photos are from the iPhone, but as they say the best camera in the world is the one you have in your hand.
