New book: 📷 “I can’t paint!” 🎨

Hi everyone,

I have a new book – http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/8173860-i-can-t-paint

The e-book version for Amazon Kindle Fire®, Android devices and PC computers (much cheaper but totally useless for fixing the wonky leg on your coffee table unless you use your phone or tablet for the job, but if you’ve got a £1000 i-Phone!! then the hardback’s probably a better option  –

Apple version for Apple iPad® and MAC computers available on iTunes store – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/id1287528555

Book description

I’ve always had a lot of admiration for both artists and photographers many of whom I count amongst my friends. I’ve been taking photographs for more than forty years but, over the years, I’ve gradually grow away from producing purely photographic works and adopted a more painterly style to my work. I’ve also been lucky to indulge my passion for travel so many of the works featured in the book are from my recent travels abroad as well as a selection of works from my travels closer to home in the UK. I hope that you find my work interesting and enjoyable.

Size Standard Landscape, 10×8 in, 25×20 cm

Simple things please simple minds :)

Well that’s how the saying goes 🙂

Hi everyone,

Sometimes one can get a boost from the simplest of things (yes I am easily pleased) 🙂

I bought a new screw on metal lens hood for my Lumix 12-32 mm lens. This lens takes  37 mm filters and, as it’s a screw on hood, it means removing it to fit/change a filter or so I thought!. I usually pair this lens up with either my M.Zuiko 12-150 mm or 40-150 mm lens when I’m travelling light and I was delighted to find that this JJC hood has a 58 mm filter thread on the front meaning that I can use the same 58 mm filters as my companion Olympus lenses accept as well as a 58 mm lens cap which is much easier to fit and remove.  Yeah sure it would be nice if more folks visited my website and a lottery win wouldn’t go amiss either but it brightened my day a little 🙂

Best wishes

New work: “Life beyond the trees”

Hi everyone,

Went down to the river this morning (again) 🙂 and came back with this painterly impressionist landscape scene. Autumn is probably,photographically-speaking my most favourite season.

New work: “Trees, sky and grass”

Hi everyone,

As far as my work goes it doesn’t get much more painterly than this one :). I couldn’t find a more imaginative name for it so settled for the obvious 🙂

Website chat room added

Hi folks,

I thought I’d add a chat room page to my website as it’s nice to have a live chat facility. I don’t know if this is going to be a much used feature or not but, hey, I’ve got one now 🙂

A thousand blessings on the buyer. This is the second work that I’ve sold of this scene.
