A Magpie when it comes to photography. I capture anything and everything that captures my eye and lens. From textures of peeling cracked...

A walk with me in my photography from this morning 4.10.09

I have found today as I uploaded over 200 images form my walk with Simon this morning how diverse and wonderful a simple walk can be with a camera in your hand.

Simon suggested we grab some time for us as recently things have been a bit hetic with both our jobs and also fo me at my home getting my eldest daughter ready for Uni next weekend, I have been unable to go and photograph or have time to just go out with Simon for a wander.

So this was a great chance to walk and enjoy what felt like our first autumn day and great to be out in the fresh air and the beautiful light. Snapping away at anything that caught my eye, or trying new things with slower shutter speeds as we bimbled on, yes we bimble as we are always stopping every few feet to take photos, pointing things out to one another and having a laugh and a joke.

It was only after I got home, after watching the graund prix of course and up loading my images that I realised how diverse my captures had been on the walk.

Of our beautiful rural landscape

Mother nature showing her natural beauty to me

Man letting things go to rot and waste

Even worse our disregard for the world and place we live in

But if you know how to look beauty is still around us in all shapes and forms

I have added this amount of images today as I felt on a journey to try and show what I saw today on my walk, on how wonderful photography can be, how it makes you see the world differntly and you discover so much more around you

Thank you to those that have ploughed their way through those images tonight and tom and found time to leave a comment or two.: ) I appreciate it so much, just had a need to do this.
