roses and other flowers and plants that i like

At the moment I have no idea why I’m taking these photographs, except that the roses remind me of little soldiers.

F-Stop Magazine’s Happy Accidents

I’m pleased to say that I have 3 images, in the October/November 2014 online group exhibition for F-Stop Magazine – Happy Accidents.

My images span 3 different projects that all feature plants photographed at night. Here’s one of them – a hydrangea caught in the wind in my own back garden.

Here’s another image which came from my documentation of the Chasing Shadows projection at Hackney WickED! 2014.

Perfect for small budgets, prints include a selection of interesting trees and plants, a striking section of rock (which reminds me of the Boyle family), and an impressive bird – a new image from the series Heralds (faded glory).
