I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    This is great Rosalie … I love the angle and presentation … the blue door amongst the dilapidated surroundings really adds intrigue to what beyond♥

  • I’m a bit miffed that they are doing Scheyville up Bev … even installing a commercial kitchen – waiting to see how ‘restored’ it ends up! I keep sneaking out beyond the wire for some of these shots … the day will come … !!!! Pleased you like it .. xxx

    Interesting shot and good treatment Rosalie.

  • The shovels got my eye as much as anything – that’s how the workmen left them (really needed a 3rd one but … can’t be choosey!!)
