I sometimes really enjoy working in black and white. I don’t know why, maybe it was because when I was a kid TV and newspapers etc. were all in monochrome, one seemed to accepted black and white imagery a lot more naturally than today. One never really saw it as strange, living in a colourful world and at the same time coming home to watch something on the TV in black and white whereas I guess nowadays it’s seen as odd . Occasionally I like to strip away the colour and just look at the composition without and distractions. I find it quite relaxing and therapeutic if that doesn’t sound too strange.
Another new painterly work of Malta.
Another new Maltese landscape work a view of Valletta across the bay from Silema.
The first of my landscape works of Malta, Gozo and Comino.
The first in a series of new photographic works taken around the beautiful mediterranean island of Malta with my new Olympus M.Zuiko Pro 12-40mm 1:2.8 lens.
York House Gardens, Twickenham. I don’t think that Mr. McCullin would like this one overly much :).
I am completely and utterly astounded!. My latest work “Between the ponds” which I posted on this blog and on Flickr yesterday evening has, thanks to being “explored” on Flickr, gotten nearly 4,000 views and in excess of 100 faves!.
I’m really delighted that they chose one of my “painterly” works. This was also my 999th work posted on Flickr in the last two and a half years that I’ve been posting to Flickr. I thought twice about posting this work as I thought that the colours were a bit too dark! 🙂
