The iPhone has a Long Exposure feature, which can be accessed using the Live Photo mode, so I’ve been experimenting with it to create these seascapes. It softens the motion of the waves and I like the dreamy effect it creates.
After the bushfire
I’m currently living in South Australia for a few months. While I’ve not been directly affected by the awful bushfires which swept the country over the last six months, I occasionally come across the damage they caused.
A fish out of water
I had a very unsettled sleep last night, where I drifted in and out of strange, abstract dreams. Dreams I couldn’t quite focus on and couldn’t quite grasp. (Maybe watching Season 2 of The OA before bed wasn’t such a good idea!)
I took this photo in the garden today. The very selective focus of this shot, where the main elements of the flower feel just out of grasp, resonated with me.
I love this time of year, when the blossom starts to come out on the young trees in my garden. The beautiful, colourful, delicate petals on my crab apple tree are fleeting, but also a positive sign that nature is stirring from the slumber of winter and good weather is on the way once more.

After taking the earlier photo of a spider waiting in the centre of its web, I went inside for some lunch.
When I went back into the garden, I discovered the spider had prepared its lunch too!

While London isn’t nearly as cold as Kiev, there has been quite a cold snap since we got back from our trip. I love the frost on the leaves in the garden. It creates such beautiful patterns and textures.
The clocks went back one hour this morning, as British Summer Time came to an end. I woke up and went to make myself a coffee. I looked through the kitchen window to see the garden shrouded in mist. There were so many cobwebs glistening in the gentle morning light. Autumn has definitely arrived!
