This work is dedicated to the memory of Mike Oxley, a friend and mentor to many here on redbubble

Another in my bubble series, this time I used a photograph of a beautiful Gaudi Mozaic at the Casa Batlló, Barcelona, Spain.

The original image, shown below, was taken with a Canon 1Ds Mk1, fitted with a Canon EF 24 – 105mm F4L IS USM lens. Digital manipulation was done using Photoshop Elements 7. The image was cropped, the background changed using the clone tool. The image was then manipulated using two consecutive filters.


I was a scientist for many years, working in the field of medical research, both in academia and in industry. In late 2004, I left science to pursue my creative interests in photography and the visual arts.

I am now a professional photographer living in South East London. You can view my professional photography website at:-
