A very sincere thank you to whoever purchased two pieces of my art work today. Urquhart Castle is such a photogenic place, it’s hard to take a bad picture.

I don’t always have the time to comment here let alone write journal entries, but I was touched by this acknowledgement of my work.

Thank you again, I sincerely hope you continue to enjoy your purchase.

Seasons Greetings

Hi everyone, well, ready for Christmas?…

I’m about to head off for sunnier climes so expect hot Texas shots for the next few weeks!!

Which reminds me…sunny Christmases are something I’m really not used to, and our Ozzy friends would laugh at that and think nothing of throwing another shrimp on the barbie…which is actually according to my daughter a kind of American Doll that hangs around with Ken…which as a matter of fact is a word in Scots that means “know” as in dae ye ken wha that is?….which is all a long winded way of saying thank you for being here and sharing your work and experience, wherever and whoever you are….it takes all sorts to make a cake! (ok…that sounds like a yucky cake…but stick with me!)

I am particularly aware of people from cultures and religions who may be feeling a


Wow!! Thanks for the feature guys, Castle Urquhart is such a classic photo from round these parts, it was good to be able to capture it like this.

Thanks again.



Hi, I just thought that I’d share this new site I’ve found that prices your photographs according to their actual market value.…

This is not a competitor to redbubble, they only sell the images, not wall art or cards. However I was amazed at the value they have placed on my photos

Here’s a quote from their about page.

“Creators, charge what you want and earn higher payouts! End this “race to the bottom.” Set your prices based on the work and cost that went into the production of the content or choose the Cutcaster pricing algorithm to take the thought out of pricing your content if you don’t know how. We will help."

I am using them and other sites to spread the word about my work, but it was reassuring to at last have someone value my work reasonably.

Another nice feature is that they tell

RIP Jorn Utzon

Jorn Utzon, the designer of the iconic Sydney Opera House died of a heart attack at the age of 90.

I would like the recent challenge in the Best Treatment group to act as a tribute to his imagination and vision.

He is quoted as having said “I like to be on the edge of the possible” this is, I think, a place we should all strive to reach.

Challenge...Sydney Opera House...or start your own.

Hi everyone, I am announcing the start of a new Challenge in the Best Treatment Group.

We are about to launch our very first challenge and are looking for your best photographs of this iconic Australian building.

If you have a picture that you think compares well with the many others on RedBubble, join the group and submit your photo.

Challenge starts in 2 days and will remain open for approximately 7 days.

If you want to take part, join up and post your intention to take part in this challenge in the forum.

Let the Best Treatment win!!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a picture of the Sydney Opera House, you probably do have a picture of something that other people have photographed…if so, join up and suggest your own challenge.

Thanks for reading and sorry for the mass bubblemail

New Group idea

Hi, I’m looking for a co-host for a new group idea I have. It’s still more of an idea than a hard and fast concept…so if anyone out their likes my stuff and the stuff I like, please contact me to discuss.


Another Feature

Wow, An Teallach Evening was featured in the sets of two group.

This is a great honour for me because there are some very, very good pictures in this group.


Two features

Wow, I must be doing something right…2 features in one day. Thanks to the moderators of the Alternative Process Photography group and the Scots are Coming!

I feel very lucky almost every day I take my camera out, that I live in the Highlands. So close to many, many beautiful places and an inspiration for ideas. I believe that now with the technology that is available we can all start to really capture what our eyes “see” and what our hearts are saying.
