The ancient mariner

Joby, the ancient mariner, was relaxing on the steps of his shed, taking a break from repairing his fishing nets.

Abstract 173 ‘Miscellany’

I enjoyed creating this ‘abstract’ picture by superimposing layers.  For me there is a cheerful, fresh feel about this chaotic floral mishmash.

Seaweed abstract ‘The Mendicant’

As with The Mystic in a post last week, this is a seaweed pattern as found  –  nothing has been added and nothing taken away.  The only editing has been the fading out of the sand (although some feint traces have been allowed to remain) and a slight colour saturation.  Gradually a figure seemed to emerge  –  I’ve called him The Mendicant but there are other titles that could be applied which are equally appropriate.

Sunlight and the sea

The late afternoon sunlight played on the gently rippling waters beside the quay.  I was alone except for two small children at the far end of the quay, excitedly ‘crabbing’  under the watchful supervision of their grandparents.

An Admiral, a Cabbage and a Peacock!

It is a joy to see the butterflies responding to the recent explosion of sunny weather.

Seaweed abstract ‘The Mystic’

Seaweed pattern as found  –  nothing added, nothing taken away (except the sand), merely rotated  90 degrees!
