Having fought against switching from the purity of film, via a little Canon P&S to what I use now, a fancy-schmancy
5D Mark ii 5D Mark iii, I am well and truly digitally converted. The freedom to take a hundred photos when in the past I would have waited for the 'perfect' shot has been liberating - not to mention a severe drain on my hard drive.
With my photos, what you see is what you get; I peer at the world with one eye closed or with head on one side; I see bokeh sparkles in the bottom of my wineglass - but that might just be an alcoholic haze!
My photos are almost always sooc. I do not 'Photoshop' (far too complicated!); instead I crop using Picasa - and occasionally sharpen or adjust the contrast.
I hope you like what you see; I am my own most severe critic (well, apart from my grumpy husband!) but I welcome your comments. I am happy for you to use my images (according to my Creative Commons licence of course) but would at the very least, appreciate being told.

"Surely, when I run out of ideas, it is Jenny's photostream I need to visit. She has an amazing ability to turn everyday details into a magnificient, and often very intriguing piece of art. Jenny's wonderful pictures are very creative and highly inspiring. It is a joy to look through her photos."
