Gillian: Old seat. The way the sun casts its light adds interest.
Les: Old bottle in the shed, with cobwebs and rain.
Les: "Chinese Lantern" (Physalis). Les used a gold reflector to add warm light to natural lighting.
Amazing how attractive these mouldy oranges seem! The colours are lovely.
Liam: Storage tanks on Inchcombe Island. The colour of the tanks and the line of the composition work to good effect.
Taken near Craigie Farm. Liam converted this picture to black and white, enhancing the aging aspect. The derelict house is framed by the trees, and the grasses in the foreground work well.
Marthe: Drain pipe
Noreen: Rusty chain
Noreen: Two beautiful aging flower heads. First: Amaryllis
And then a tulip.
