Playgrounds are a kind of treasure trove for any one mad about colour, texture, shadow and shape abstractions. They nudge us to reconnect with the kid within us and go "play" with the sights and angles with all the enthusiasm as the actual kids do on the swings and slides.

It's curious how the mind can take something and run with it isn't it? There I was - gazing at the beautiful imperfections and tactile textures on our last post whilst my mind was busy deciding for me that creases are in fact - oh-so-beautiful-and-fascinating.Read More

It can be difficult to explain why a certain sight catches our eye and holds out attention enough for us to want to capture a picture of it. I think it's more than it simply being aesthetically pleasing.Read More
It's so easy to walk around with invisible blinkers on. We tell ourselves that we are far too busy to afford the time to notice the quiet stories unfolding around us. Slowly complacency replaces our awareness and a little magic is lost.Read More
We've snapped washing lines nearly everywhere we've travelled. We don't go out searching for them - that would be a bit weird, even for us. They just happen to be one of the many things that catch our attention.Read More
