Leaves and Georgia O'Keeffe.


Two photographed leaves start turning into a Georgia O'Keeffe painting! Maybe my subconscious had been influenced by press coverage of the current Georgia O'Keeffe Exhibition at Tate Modern.

The picture at the top shows my photograph of two leaves, at Jones Lane Allotments, Hythe, Hampshire, at 15:32 on Monday 18th July 2016.

My New Wet Weather Shoes - Tracey Neuls.


When this hot spell ends, it's sure to rain again and I'll be ready with my new wet weather shoes from Tracey Neuls, Marylebone Lane, London W1. My favourite shoe shop. My kind of shoe. AND they have a reflective tab at the back to light up when I'm on my bicycle! How could I resist?

The picture at the top shows my new Tracey Neuls wet weather shoes, Geek Derby Black Tarmac (described by the London Design Museum as 'a beautiful shoe for an active life'), photographed in sumptuous black & white, at home in Hythe, Hampshire, at 12:28 on Thursday 21st July 2016.

My New Tracey Neuls Shoes.


My idea of a summer shoe.  A gift to myself last Wednesday, as just recompense for a two-and-a-half hour dental appointment!  I confess to being slightly Liz Lemon about my feet ("I'll have you know that I wore sandals this summer... over socks... in a dream"), but that's another story...

The pictures show my new Tracey Neuls shoes, at home in Hythe, Hampshire, on Saturday 18th June 2016 at 20:20, lit by the setting sun (which accounts for the almost sepia tint).
