building and creating

I am attempting to build myself a website, a space to showcase my work in a more professional way than the images on here. This has been challenging not only because I have no idea what I’m doing but also because it has meant trawling through hundreds of photos and thinking about which projects to include, which images make the cut and the different aspects of what I now do and how to include everything. It seems the answer is a website which will showcase my photography, my styling and my art direction. Categories. Something I can add to with future projects (assuming I am proactive enough to be creative).  

It is rewarding watching the space progress but I’ve reached the point where I need to ask a few friends with knowhow for advice. The presentation isn’t quite what I want, how do I make it so? Are the limitations imposed from the theme and provider I’ve chosen? Should I have continued with more research before deciding to stick with WordPress? The doubts creep in….

So watch this space! I intend to keep posting on here; working through thoughts and issues as always.  I also have a few photo walks planned which I can then share with you.

coastal lines

I miss being by the sea.  There’s just nothing like the ocean; whether it’s pounding against the cliffs, salt spray on my face and windswept tangled hair or calm and inviting, glistening in the sunlight.

This series is connected by the lines I found at the coast on a clear but blustery day:

colourful buildings

I just love the red and yellow buildings in Stockholm, stark against a cold grey sky and delightful against a blue sky as the late afternoon sun appears.  These shots were all taken in Gamla Stan (the old town) which is on a relatively small island amongst the many that make up the city.  It’s such a pleasure to wander over bridges between islands, cafe to cafe exploring the old and the new, always by the water.

Always a pleasure Stockholm, hope to see you again soon.
