Redo  Week 52

Redo Week 52

  The challenge this week is Redo. I chose the image I had done for Chaos for a couple of reasons. I enjoyed the process but was not happy with the end result. The oil pastel and Indian Ink etching is something I have wanted to experiment with. It was not a time...

52Frames Break the Rules! Week 51

  Break the Rules! is the challenge for this week, set by 52Frames. I am going away in a couple of days and then its Christmas so I wanted something that didn't seem too involved. I decided I would try and create an image from a photograph trying to make it look...

52Frames Roll of 24 Week 50

52Frames Street Photography Week 45

  The 52Frames challenge this week is Street Photography. I think its a great challenge, although I expect it was much easier at the time I took this, than it is now. I wasn't sure I would have time to do this justice, as it feels like setting up the exhibition...
