Dramatic Food

Wow is all I can say about this stunning food photography. In fact I don’t feel like I’m doing it justice calling it ‘food photography’ as they are beautiful works of art from photographer Richard Haughton. He captures food, along with many other subjects, in a bold and dramatic way which catches your attention and doesn’t let go.

Tropical Leaf Vibes

Well I have to confess, this wasn’t the post I had planned for today, but I’m so glad I switched things around and posted my tropical leaves collection. I’ve been seeing tropical / jungle foliage everywhere recently, due to it being this seasons hottest trend and I love it. As you know green is my favourite colour (I think I may have mentioned this on a few occasions!) and I love the texture of the leaves and the patterns they create. I hope this trend sticks around well into Summer.

Black and White Drama

Black-&-White-Montage

I’ve come over all dramatic in my Love Colour post today with my striking black and white mix. I really like how two colours can create such an array of shades with powerful effects. I’ve been collecting black and white photos on my Pinterest boards recently and these are just a few of my favourites.
