Happy Friday friends! It's been a busy few weeks around here and I'm hoping to schedule at least an hour or two over the weekend to do nada.
As those of you who are self employed or freelancing will know, most of the time you are it which can make the juggle a struggle during busy periods.
NEW PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE!
The good news as of Wednesday we have refreshed our product listings with many new prints now available to view and to purchase. I have to admit after many days and nights working on the photographs (of which there are gazillions) and attempting to 'refine/refine/refine' I was becoming a little angsty when Nick returned home every day with MORE GREAT PHOTOS.
Is it wrong to pray for nondescript overcast days? - no flashy clouds, no moody mist, no sunshiny shadows, no more photos please....just for one day.
Apparently my prayers went unheard & consequently in todays post there are a couple of fantastic city shots taken on Tuesday morning which have yet to make instagram or the website. You get the first peek!
"COLOUR IS EVERYTHING,
BLACK AND WHITE IS MORE"
Monochrome images are the focus of this weeks feature friday collection. There's something about the paring back of colour to focus on the simplicity of light and form that is distinct, refined, refreshing.
In essence a black and white image mimics the impact of texture in a room by adding another layer of richness and interest.

Now how much reality can there be in that?"
