More commissioned work today.

it's a peaceful setting

The Buddha and camellia in the garden

The statue of the Buddha is in the grounds of the local hospice. It is a particularly pleasant location, amongst trees with lots of bird song.


Low light angel

The Angel statue was a gift to Mary from our eldest granddaughter, Grace. It fitted neatly into the commission.  This was a long exposure with the barest minimum light source.


Freesias and Lavender

My final shot is of some flowers (freesias and lavender)  that were perhaps past their best, but in low light and with a coloured background might just scrape through.

Normal external expeditions will resume tomorrow.



About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
