Portraits

It's a while since I added any photos to this blog, but I have been out and about with my camera.
Today I went to a portrait workshop taken by David Graham.
We had to take photos of other participants and then hit the streets and ask strangers to pose for us.
here are some of  mine:

Isle of May

Last Sunday I went to the Isle of May, a small island in the Forth estuary off the coast of Anstruther. We were so lucky to have a lovely, sunny and dry day-the only such day in the last 6 weeks. The Isle of May is known for its birdlife. It is teeming with birds, but the birds I really wanted to see were puffins. And I certainly got to see puffins:


As well as Razorbills

 Terns
 and gulls
 The lighthouse
 the landscape
 and The May Princess

Port Seton.

I went to the 3 Harbours Arts Festival at Port Seton, a small fishing village in East Lothian. The exhibitions are held in people's homes, mostly along the sea front. As interesting as the art are the houses-small fihermens' cottages built in the late 1800's, and full of character. Here are a few things I spotted on my walk:
