Never a rose without a thorn

Never beauty without a beast

Perfection never without a price

Only beauty that is free.

Beauty within the eye of the beholder

Musters beauty from within

Spread your wings and fly above

The ones lost that delve in sin.



Bench Bound Photographer

Earlier I sat with my girlfriend in the park, admiring the sights of fall. We sat for the best part of two hours watching the setting sun cast amber light across the browning leaves. Nearby was a small river, flowers and some inquisitive ducks. As always I had my camera on hand. This is in response to Allison’s prompt, I hope you enjoy!

Lucky Duck:

I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw an approaching wave of ducks that swam as a nearby couple tossed bread into the river. The detail I can capture on my camera astounds me even to this day


Focusing Pink:

Behind us was a flower display sporting vibrant pink flowers with a backdrop of trees and a grand manor house. I decided to remain o-natural with the flower as the focal point


Days of Fall:

This is my favorite photo from my day. The tilted tree seems to encapsulate the transition to autumn with an almost unreal division. The ducks still present and quacking behind the silently whispering tall grass and bushes.


Note: I used this photo on another post Days of Fall, a short poem I wrote accompanies it.

I hope you enjoyed my photography of the day! I’d love to know your thoughts and favorites! Also check out Alison’s profile Here for more inspiring images!

Beauty within the Lens of the Beholder

I decided to take my camera out for a spin, capturing some of the flower displays and rural sights in and around cirencester. I hope you enjoy!

Pink Perfection:

This first image was captured on one of the many rustic cul-de-sacs abundant in the small town of Cirencester. I believe it portrays a feeling of harmony with nature and rural living with the quintessentially British townhouses in the background and the complexity of detail on the wall and flower display.



I love the abundance of detail mixed with the foreground dying leaves which appear out of focus. The bridging fallen tree across this small river feels like it has been placed for sheer aesthetic beauty as the clinging moss and greenery still grows upon it.


Road to Nowhere:

This is perhaps my favorite image from the collection. The path seems to fade to green and mesh with the trees that have formed a long, meandering tunnel down this obscured path seldom used by dog walkers and adventurous soles looking for escapism from the ever expanding and bustling town.
