Attempts at self portraits

What to do on a slow Sunday afternoon? Attempts at self portraits quite obviously. I believe they are commonly described as selfies these days, like if something new has been created, but consist no more than a clever repackaging of a concept that has existed since…Well since cave men could paint on the walls of…

Photograph of a cloudy sunrise with a seagull standing on a rock in profile against the sun.

Sunrise

In what is a dark and rainy day in Scotland today, I thought a photo of a rising sun could cheer a few faces. This was the summer of 2010, Portlethen beach in the East Coast of Scotland, a very early wake up call to capture the sunrise. There were several seagulls standing on the…

Fyvie Castle – Aberdeenshire
