Photographs for painting inspiration

As I mentioned on an earlier blog, I am now seeing things differently.

It is almost as if my eyes have opened up and I am more aware of the beauty around me.

I don't just see a tree.   Sometimes I actually see a face in the tree, something I would have missed before this new creative awareness surfaced.

Thanks to my Blackberry Torch telephone, I now have a handy inbuilt camera with me at all times.

This one was taken whilst walking in a local park.

Can you see the beautiful faces in the Tree ?


I recently went to Glastonbury (my spiritual home) for a weekend trip and got some wonderful shots all intended for painting inspiration.

I have actually had a few people comment on some of them and some have suggested that I maybe take up photography.  Perhaps some day I will.

Here are some of my recent pictures below from Glastonbury.


This one was taken at the top of Glastonbury Tor. How lucky was I to get a shot with a hot air balloon flying past :-)



Another one taken at the top of the Tor. I like the skyline and that there was someone  in the Tor building so it gives you a sense of the size of the building. 




































Amazing formation of clouds late afternoon also taken at the top of Glastonbury Tor.

 The one below was taken during an early 6.30 am walk up to the Tor. The sun had recently risen and I could also see what was left of the moon.


































Another similar shot of the recently risen Sun.


































Chalice Well Garden. We had a picnic under these beautiful trees.
 

All the photos above were taken using my Blackberry Torch mobile phone camera.
