It's a while since I added any photos to this blog, but I have been out and about with my camera.
Today I went to a portrait workshop taken by David Graham.
We had to take photos of other participants and then hit the streets and ask strangers to pose for us.
here are some of mine:

Last Sunday I went to the Isle of May, a small island in the Forth estuary off the coast of Anstruther. We were so lucky to have a lovely, sunny and dry day-the only such day in the last 6 weeks. The Isle of May is known for its birdlife. It is teeming with birds, but the birds I really wanted to see were puffins. And I certainly got to see puffins:
As well as Razorbills
and The May Princess

I went to the 3 Harbours Arts Festival at Port Seton, a small fishing village in East Lothian. The exhibitions are held in people's homes, mostly along the sea front. As interesting as the art are the houses-small fihermens' cottages built in the late 1800's, and full of character. Here are a few things I spotted on my walk:

We are just back from a week's holiday in the highlands. We were so lucky with the weather-warm, dry and of course no midgies at this time of the year. It was our first holiday without kids in 20 years, and it was lovely!! Here's some pictures of the first day:
I walked up through a forest, over a field..

So for this assignment we were meant to take a portrait of an artist holding something related to their art in their hand. We were to use one light to create a portrait with one side of the face lit, and the other in shadow. The light could be a flash or even the sun. I don't actually know any artists so my daughter agreed, grudgingly, to pose as a jewellery artist!
