Over Confident Mice

An old photo of some very over confident mice taken with my beloved Olympus Om-1

The Ghosts of an Old Home

To photograph 'nothing' or loneliness, I wonder what a photograph of these themes would look like or does that just depend on what the viewer feels?

Little Cigars

You may have noticed I have been playing in the local graveyard. I came across this stone were it looks as if someone has left a gift of little cigars, the packet was opened and only one was taken.

Graveyard Figures

'There, there'

'Bless You'

'Copy Cat'

I love all the little plastic and china figures of saints you find in the graveyard. Some graves are littered with them; some are placed lovingly near the headstone, most are scattered about the place. They have been displaced by the wind and left by neglect.
A few of the statues have been there for as long as I can remember, a triumph of the lasting power of plastic.
They were placed there by love and forgotten by time. Little dolls for the dead. Cheesy I know.

Opened up my delivery of clay to find a little packet of Starmix included in the box…. An unusual surprise, makes me wonder if there is a huge stockpile of Haribo sweets in the college ceramics department! :)
