At the end of each month I like to review the photos I have taken both on my iPhone 6s and my ‘grown up’ camera, a gift from my husband on my 60th birthday, which marked the real start of my creative journey. This serves two purposes. Firstly I can weed out and delete (in theory at least) photos that don’t make the cut, secondly it acts as a review of the month thinking back to where I’ve been and what I’ve done, which of course, varies considerably from month to month.
September falls into three distinct sections. There were a couple of visits to London, a weekend on the Isle of Wight and some days out we had at the end of the month when my 93 year old mother-in-law was staying with us. She can’t do hills now but is willing to give most other things a go.
For those of you that are interested in these things my camera is a Cannon EOS 600D and I was using my favourite lense the 55-250 mm. which allows me to zoom on to things in the distance but also take close ups of flowers, butterflies and the like.
My real passion is for small details, often driven by colour. I love abstracts, blends and patterns. Boat hulls like this one at Buckler’s Hard in Hampshire are one of my favourite subjects.
Suddenly everywhere seems ablaze with autumn colours – not the trees yet perhaps, but this vegetable patch is vibrant in its abundance and decay
As usual I am astounded by the variety of things I have seen this month, it makes me realise how lucky I am to live in a place of such beauty and variety, and and to be able to get out and appreciate it.
Finally as it’s September I have to finish with pumpkins! What were your favourite images of the month? I’d love to know.
