Now. Where was I?

Oh yes, St Ives!  Seems like a long time ago now.  The reason for the gap in postings this week is a quick trip to my Mum's to empty and demolish her garden shed which was in danger of collapse.  DH worked like a little Trojan and with me filling bin bags and making drinks we got the job done.  So now here I am trying to pick up the threads again.

Anyway, back to St Ives.  St Ives was home to the noted sculptor Barbara Hepworth and is proud of its museum which celebrates her work.  We have visited the museum and garden before but thought it was time for a return visit and this time I tried to concentrate on images that would provide me with inspiration for digital work as well as possible design sources.








 I can see designs for quilts in several of these photographs which would require very little change in the shapes perceived.   I am longing to have a play with the spider's web photograph in Photshop, just need to find some time! 

I have had a very quick play with the image of the sawn off stumps but Blogger has gone into a sulk and won't load it. Grrrr!  I'll post it next time.

I seem to be back in a blogging slump at the moment, probably as a result of a few days away, but I have been working on a couple of projects so I haven't been totally idle.  I'll keep this short and hopefully get Blogger to accept some more photos tomorrow.

Doesn't Blogger drive you mad sometimes? Your photos are so fascinating and full of inspiration. I love the shot with a glimpse of the plants through a space in the sculpture but they are all beautiful.

Love your pics! I'm having a terrible time trying to get photos to load also!
I wonder what the last photo represents? It looks like it might be tree bark?
<3 your blog!
