I discovered a wonderful new world of macro water photography recently while washing my car. The fine water spray coming to rest on the roof and windows caught my eye as they glistened in the sun.
Here are some of the results.
I kind of got carried away with the photographing and as a result, the car is still dirty! All images are available for purchase by clicking on the image and following the prompts or simply by contacting me.
I thought I might post some before and after shots that might interest you.
The first was taken from a moving train in Beijing. I spotted the buildings and thought they looked interesting. The original shot is nothing special as you can see here.
I cropped a lot out of this image, converted to mono and added a second texture image for mood. I also cloned out distracitng buildings and ended up with (what I think) looks like something from an old Eastern block country.
The second shot was also taken in Beijing at the Forbidden City. The original has lots of distractions in it including people, light posts and tunnels.
First I converted the image into square format, removed the posts, people and tunnels, filled in the holes and added texture and colour layers to create some mood and atmosphere.
I enjoy reworking otherwise ordinary images, changing their original appearance to make them more appealing.
Both of the reworked images are available for purchase in the “image galleries” inside the “simple by design” and “urban art” galleries.
I’ve added a whole lot of new work into the galleries. Here are just a few.

I’ve been busy lately working on some new images for the galleries. Here are just a few examples of what I’ve been up to.

I have entered in to an exciting new venture with a very good friend of mine to have my artwork displayed on the walls of his new restaurant, “Pekish” @ 1 Mason St, Newport, located in Seagulls Hotel.
There are a number of works hanging on the walls and around the bar area and I’ll be rotating the pieces regularly.
