Beth Chatto Gardens (3)

At the entrance to the gardens stands this splendid old tree.  I’ve no idea what it is but its size is enormous: compare it in scale with the visitors close by.

Abstract 175

Many of my seaweed images use dead or dessicated material and the attraction lies in the sketchy patterns formed against a plain background.  However, this image is derived from a photo of wet seaweed on a rock.  The colours, lines, patterns and textures combine to produce a beautiful abstract composition.

A further taste of garlic

Abstract 158 was taken from a group of still life photos using garlic cloves as the subject.  The pictures below are from the same session.

Driftwood. Poverty or piety?

It is not uncommon to find ‘interesting’ pieces of driftwood that resemble fantasy creature, such as the ‘Ksarmathaurus’ I posted in April.  The image below is of a piece found on the same beach near Agadir in Morocco.  I am fairly sure that it is what remains of a decaying palm trunk, but whatever it is I was attracted by the rather gentle, downcast figure it seemed to suggest.  It could equally be a devout young lady.
