My Town friday Shootout - Textures from Portugal!

Hello everyone! This Friday my town shoot out comes from the beautiful place of Portugal! I have just got back and had a wondrous time! Here is some of my pictures containing different textures!

Smooth tiles on walls

tough star tiles pathways

stunning wooden doors

with dainty hand door knockers

rough sand and smooth waves

bringing with them shells embedded on the shore

and taken to design shop porch ways, walking over glass box floors to gaze at!

Have a lovely weekend, i am watching the royal wedding, it is like a Lord of the rings type fairy tale!

Friday My Town Shoot Out: Places of worship.

Hello there! Friday comes around so quick! How are we all? Good I hope! Right, away we go! This is the amazing Angolan cathedral in the beautiful city of Liverpool. A immense size that once i was inside, and I was trying to look up to see the ceiling and fell over backwards! At night is has a spooky glow with St James cemetery below but I tend to think it looks like Batman's house!
This is the Metropolitan cathedral opposite the Angolan in Liverpool. Very modern in terms of the other but yet strangely beautiful as well.
Now, this is one of my favourite places in Liverpool. St Luke's church or locally, The bombed out church. This church was bombed in World War 2 and the shell remained. Now it is used to holding free out door screenings of classic films.
this was my own wee alter at Christmas. I went hell for leather and made this archway and collected strains and branches of holly and ivy and started felting, embroidering and knitting everything to hang on it!
I went camping recently in a forest that has seen many a moon. 10, 000 years old we were told!

At that moment in time, i thought it would be my perfect place of worship, it was just so bewitching and beautiful! Have a lovely weekend!

Friday My Town Shoot Out: April Fools!

For this weeks shoot out is to nominate our favourite assignment! I have to say, my favourite is Bokeh (ohhh, i really hope I spelt that right!) I have the Friday town gang to thank for this, for this assignment really made my camera suddenly magical! I started to research my camera settings and it has really opened my imagination with photography! This is realy why I like this blog, it keeps you on your toes and teaches so well!
