Exposure 2015

TT-thistleheads copy-bw

At the beginning of June 2015 I took part in the 5th annual Exposure photography competition. Much to my surprise and delight one of my images was chosen to feature in a special exhibition of digital art in the Louvre on 13th July in the Art Photography Collection.

That photograph has now been included in the book that has been produced to celebrate the 2015 competition, my image is on page 27. The book went on sale to the general public and net proceeds from the sales go to the charity Pencils of Promise.

Cityscape – Bristol’s churches

The city of Bristol in the UK is blessed with an extraordinary number of churches, many still standing but many in ruins and falling into disrepair.  At one time there were about two hundred within close reach of the city centre These provide an Aladdin’s cave of photo opportunities.

A couple of months ago we visited the Hauser and Wirth art gallery and perennial meadow garden, designed by Piet Oudholf. It is in Somerset, UK.

A perfect place for taking interesting photos…..
