A Group of Friends Lost? (Painting)

A group of friends out on a walk , they seem lost. which way to go this way or that way? A group decision is always more difficult to make.

Hunting For Images Down Southsea Way

Yesterday saw me down Southsea way and hunting for Images, came away with sime good ones I think

First a quick sketch showing the Spinnaker Tower and lipstick Tower from Southsea Common

A hoverraft Speeding away destination Ryde!

Liked the juxtaposition of this shot….

My eye was caught by the monument behind the hut but on looking again the buckets and cleaning equipment look interesting as well

Looking down and Looking up

Looking down from a plane and seeing landscape below.theses are patterns be it fields or towns,it may seem chaotic at times but nature is chaos and humans add to this though they like to think they are in control

Looking Up at the sky,Hello plane where have you been? where are you going? Last week was a funny old week a sky without planes because of ash from the volcano.You see what i mean by humans thinking they are in control they are never really

Spring Yellow

Spring is well and truly here and the nature has been busy in this part of the world. Today a cop;e og photos snapped from the train between Chichester and Havant this am

Branches of tree with the yellow of Oilseed rape in the background….

Electric Pylons and Oilseed rape.

I am still not toatly conviced by this spread of oilseed rape as farmers seem to be fond of it I find it a rather alien colour though of course it can be dramatic, now if they were to switch to sunflowers that might be a differnent matter!!
