Looking forward to 2013 ….

…. with fresh images from my collection and with new ideas in the pipeline.

Meanwhile, here’s one of my favourites from 2012 .. it’s called ‘Cool Pebble’


‘Cool Pebble’ 

…. also looking forward to next year with my new A4 calendar of images photographed in my studio at home this year, cropped samples of pages below. Each page contains an image approximately A5 landscape in size, as ‘Cool Pebble’ appears above, for instance.  I am selling this unique collection of images for £25 inc. p&p; if you’re interested just contact me.

Time passes; light passes through..


‘Watching time pass by’

I’ve just added a new gallery – ‘Time passing, light passing through’ consisting of recent images featuring timelapse and reflection. New shapes appear when time is added; golden balls turn into doughnut shapes or lamp-like objects. Topological changes occur too with reflected objects; exciting distortions are the order of the day.

Below, some images from earlier today featuring new angles of incidence and reflection … enjoy!


‘Cosmic angles of attack 1’


‘Cosmic angles of attack 2’


‘Glass armour galleon’


‘Spark off in the cosmos’

Imagination …. the magic ingredient

‘The imagination dissolves, diffuses, dissipates, in order to recreate _… _’* *S.T. Coleridge’s words (bold italics) quoted by Charles Jencks in his book ‘The Architecture of the Jumping Universe”

A process of transformation occurs when the viewer looks at an image, adds his imagination and thereby to some extent makes the image his own.

Your interpretation/version of the images below will be different from mine … many versions coexisting …


‘Spiral evolution’


‘Effortless symmetry’


‘Carmen M’

Flowdance glowdance!

‘Flowdance glowdance’ is a journey through some of my favourite images of the year. As always, different media, same concerns: these images are chosen for their ambiguity of scale and content, bright colour, unusual shapes and universal patterning …. set to some cool sounds made here at home by iPB Soundscapes … enjoy!

Stretching a long way’s OK

Here are some inksplosions I have taken recently that show ink being stretched; in some cases, quite a long way. Many inks seem quite comfortable with that; they are very elastic. As we see from these four images, different inks behave in different ways when undergoing the same outward movement.

‘Aqua vortex, yellow window’


‘Windows within windows’
