Textured Paper. Fun Background Photographs

Grab some scraps of wallpaper from a DIY store, get your food colours and paints out, throw it all in a big tub and see what fun colours and textures you can get with them! It’s a fun little project to do in the garden when you’re stressed out with normal life.

Paint, Flake, Repeat, Urban Decay

I never understood the thinking of ‘well this paint is flaking, so we will paint over it’. Mind you, these abandoned garages looked like the perfect urban decay. The colour contrast is fantastic, and the photos remind me of abstract art.

Tulips, Beautiful Pink Flowers

Bees on Opium Poppies

This year we managed to get some massive opium poppy flower heads in the garden. They are more feathers than petals and the bees are going mad for them! As always I’m out there trying to get the perfect shot, and I’m still waiting! Thought these ones were fun though!

Industrial Rust and Peeling Paint

I love finding rust and paint that’s been peeling off for decades. The colour combinations often end up really contrasting with each other. These were found around an old train station, the bridge and a very old lamp post that no longer works. Worrying the bridge is still being used though!Abstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly StillAbstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly Still 1Abstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly Still 6Abstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly Still 7Abstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly StillAbstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly Still 2Abstract Macro Industrial Rust and Metal Shelly Still 4

The Friendly Stag Beetle

This female stag beetle was in a bit of a pickle. I think she had run out of energy and was in the middle of a very busy pathway. I could see she was going to get trodden on so I held out my hand and she climbed on. A short car ride home and a bit of prune juice for the sugars. While she was chilling out I put her on a white plate and warmed her up a bit with the photography lights. She seemed more than happy to chill out for a bit.

I think she said her name was Mabel when she flew off.
