Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Plastic


Cyclone Twist by Sculptor Alice Aycock

Everything seems to be made of plastic in one form or another these days…even the camera body of the Nikon used for this shot.

As you see the title for this sculpture is very appropriate “Cyclone Twist” it was one of many exhibits in the grounds of Chatsworth House…a very English Stately Home, very solid and built well before plastic was ever thought of.

A contrast between new and old, in design and materials. It is my suggestion for Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge.

Larch Time…..


It is that time of the year when the Larch really start to shine….throughout the year they display various shades of green but now the needles are rich brown……soon they will carpet the woodland  floor

It is starting to get colder and the moors a little bleaker but still exciting and satisfying to be out  in the (relatively mild)  autumn.
