Abstraction in the City

Abstract Photography

Reflections Create Abstract Forms

Today in the City of London it is a day within which it is easy to chase light.  Light flows freely along the streets and reflects off the sleek surfaces of modern buildings creating alleyways of illumination.

Photography is about light and our digital sensors love light if you handle it with sensitivity.  The light today gives an opportunity to create an abstract image using London architecture as a starting point.  Continue reading “Abstraction in the City” »

Golden Glow Through The Trees

Autumn in Greenwich Park

Golden Glow Through The Trees

Another Autumn day in the Park and the light is gently filtered.  As I make my way I come to a clearing which is illuminated by golden light.  I look as see a wave of gold in front of me and as I gaze I see thousands of leaves filling the air around me.  They are golden and glow through the trees.  I look down at my feet and golden hues are reflected on the path.  I look and see its colouration on my hands and I anticipate my face is golden too.  Continue reading “Golden Glow Through The Trees” »

Yellow Autumn

Yellow Autumn Leaves

Yellow Leaves of Autumn Revealed Through the Mist

I love the quiet which the Park brings to my day.  As I walk I see this view which stretches across the Park.  The mist is haunting as it slowly reveals the yellow leaves of Autumn behind its veil.

This is a view to linger on, taking time to see each nuance of colour, detail, atmosphere and sublime textures of this day.

In the distance I see two people walking a dog and a third following slowly behind.  Continue reading “Yellow Autumn” »

Entering Autumn

Greenwich Park at Autumn

Gateway to Autumn; all is yellow ochre, soft green and orange mists.

Today in the Park I marvel at the vibrant bursts of colour; yellows, orange, reds and light green. Autumn is underway and as I walk I see leaves falling softly as the wind blows through the trees.

I walk a fair distance and see how people interact with Autumn.  Continue reading “Entering Autumn” »

Changing Face of London

Victorian Terrace

Contrast of the Old and the New

London is a fast moving city. The landscape and make up of this city is ever changing. Central London has had a huge development of luxury apartments and modern office space. The design of modern architecture is effortlessly sleek and I like the clean lines. Homes have also started to look like offices as clean lines are echoed throughout living spaces. Continue reading “Changing Face of London” »

Autumn Colours

Autumn Colours in Greenwich Park

Leaves Take on the Colours of Autumn

Beautiful Autumn Colours Glow in Seasonal Mists

Seasons change and in the Park leaves turn golden and copper and I can see Autumn colours everywhere.  This is a season I love to photograph especially when gentle mists blow in.  Today is no exception, and as I make my way through the Park I hear leaves crunch underfoot.  It was only a few weeks ago and leaves were still green covering branches.  Continue reading “Autumn Colours” »

Walking in Light

The Flower Garden in Light

Iris Flowers Tempting Light

Light Colours of the Iris

Today the light in the Flower Garden is amazing.  I make my way through the park looking for illumination…and I come across a planting of Irises which are temptingly still in bud.  Their colours are just starting to show through their buds.  Light is illuminating the whole of their surface Continue reading “Walking in Light” »

Iris Flower about to Bloom

I can’t resist the Flower Garden as the summer flowers are about to bloom.  Today the sun is shining and I know I can capture intense colours where green is greener than green!  I love the sensation of rich deep colour as flowers burst through their pods to create the most stunning blooms.  Continue reading “Flower Garden About to Bloom” »

Summer Flowers

Summer Flowers are Ready to Bloom

Iris Summer Flower

Softness of Summer Flowers

Greenwich Park has awoken from a long sleep and is ready to burst with colour.  Summer flowers are in bud and wait for the sun to finally bloom.  The park is stirring with life and soon the air will be filled with scents.  The Iris is still in bud.  The form of the flower can just be seen as it grows from its stem.  The blue colouration of the Iris flower is just visible Continue reading “Summer Flowers” »
