dreaming of the perfect shot

By | June 15th, 2017|architecture, art, parks and gardens, photography|

The problem with planning Instagram is that I am looking for a particular shot. And nothing in my existing library will do. I am wondering if it will ruin the fun of Instagram, if I am going to get obsessed with planning the next shot. It will not be as instantaneous and fun as it [...]

I suppose that I should be cramming definitions and working out my game plan for the case study for my exam tomorrow. I am doing NO SUCH THING!! Hehe. I am reading about how to design your Instagram gallery so that it is visually coherent and drinking red wine. I am a little bit scared [...]

By | May 17th, 2017|art|

There are definitely some very talented street artists. It is so fun to happen across a new piece in the neighbourhood. I really like the gold splotches, which seem to me to resonate with the inherent beauty of the woman. Although it might be construed as a violent image, I prefer to think of it [...]

lovely, physical, real world

The humble art of housework. It is the most amazing antidote to the web, to the world of business and commerce and being constantly switched 'on'. There is something so satisfying about getting into the physical world and doing something visceral, something physical. I guess exercise is a similar antidote. Or cooking. It takes the [...]
