Silence WordPress Photo Challenge

There is nothing like snow... and here in the South East of England we occasionally see the odd flurry but we never have what I would call real snowfall.  Snowfall where places are blanketed from edge to edge with deep, white and crisp snow.  The theme for this week's challenge is Silence. And silence to … Continue reading Silence WordPress Photo Challenge

Elemental WordPress Photo Challenge

This week's subject for the WordPress Photo Challenge is called Elemental and WordPress asks you to explore the elements of earth, air, water and fire.

Before and After Monthly Photography Challenge

One of the things I like about Photography is processing an image...

26 Weeks Letter Challenge – Letter K

  Lori's challenge for the 26 Weeks Letter Challenge was a hard one.. this week.  I wanted to play along but was getting really stumped at what images I had with objects in that started with the letter 'K'.  I was just about to give up and skip this challenge...

Deer Little Faces

  Face is this weeks subject for photo challenge set by WordPress Daily Post. And so I thought I would create an oil-looking painting in Photoshop of a photograph that I took at Knole, near Sevenoaks in Kent earlier this year, of these lovely little deer faces.
