Journal for the year 2020

Lake District and Yorkshire

In October we were allowed to travel a bit more and managed to find an isolatfed house between the Lake Districk and Yorkshire. We ate in and just went into the countryside to take photographs without mixing with other people. Below a few images from the Lake District and Yorkshire which we tended to visit more than the Lakes.

Lockdown March - September 2020

During the Lockdown period I decided to do some indoor photography, most of which was done in the garage, in the dark and using just a small torch. This is a technique I have been perfecting over the last few months. It was also an opportunity to try and put together a panel of work using my collection of inkwells and memorabilia. I also did some texture work and recently managed to visit a couple of places. Below are some of the images which also include Exeter City during Lockdown.

Inkwells and Memories

This was a project I was working on during Lockdown - I had a collection of inkwells and decided to make sure I had at least one inkwell in each image and the other items were mementoks from my life. The items were perhaps given to me, or souvenirs from places visited or something that brought back memories.
