On Frozen Pond

On Frozen Pond

mouse-over for before view. I believe this is the first Flypaper Edges 3 blog so Im pleased to be able to post an already popular image I posted a couple of days ago on my Face Book and Flickr accounts! Captured a few weeks ago in the coldest part of winter when the...

Dungeon

mouse-over for before view. Sometimes whilst searching for textures I’ll also fall upon a shot I can use and what a great day that is! Here we were in a village in a very deep gorge that’s known for its champagne type sparkling wine. Being in a deep gorge on a cloudy...

Garden Barrow

mouse-over for before view. Another from our French farmhouse garden, thought I’d try out my old lensbaby Optic 80 lens for a change. The rusty old wheelbarrow was left by the previous old lady owner. In the background are felled tree branches I've been trimming from...

Horse track into mist

mouse-over for before view. Great to be back to almost normal after moving house a few weeks back. We’re now in a rural area, away from the mountains and near the famous river Soane which is but a few fields away. We’ve moved to a 300 year old half timbered farmhouse...

Cliff Cottages

Cliff Cottages

mouse-over for before view. Just came across this image that I've so far never processed, I think I tried before but couldn’t balance out the heavy bottom part properly, though some would perhaps say I still haven't! However, this time I had Nik Color Pro to help out...

Hotel Concorde

Welcome to the first Cracks blog, with a bit of a graphical bent, because over the last weekend I found myself both homeless and then booked into this Hotel courtesy of our local Mayor of Beziers, M. Robert Menard who met us outside the house and was both charming and...

Lacewing Texture with Misty seed heads

Lacewing Texture with Misty seed heads

mouse-over for before view. I shot this very early one misty morning back in the autumn with my new Iphone 6 plus. It’s a view looking back towards my girlfriends house up in the French Jura which is surrounded by mature pine trees. Would have been great if a light...

Annecy Canal

Annecy Canal

mouse-over for before view. Just back from eastern France, where we visited Annecy, the ancient lakeside mountain town on the Swiss border which, coincidently, during my time as a freelance Getty curator, whilst selecting mostly French imagery, I was delighted to...
