Inspired by memories of my old poncho and the energy of The Pogues!


View On Black


Yes as a young boy I had a poncho with these colours in it, especially the stripes! It was because my mother was from Argentina and not a hippy, more's the pity! However, I loved my time in Argentina even if I did have to wear an itchy poncho!


Those of you with a keen eye will recognise this scene as the wonderful sunrise at Blyth Beach! I knew the lines on this image would be a worthy contender for some digital art work!


I'm working on some square crops (not that type of crop!) at the moment which I'm aiming to present as triptych's, following a suggestion from young Phil! Cheers bro' as it has been great pleasure working with shapes and lines to create a series to compliment a scene.


What is also exciting about turning your landscapes and seascapes into art is that I may actually print some for the house! We've just had a lot of work done on the house and I'm in the market for some artwork! I'm planning on having one of Anita's pieces printed and looking for some accompanying pieces!


So have a wonderful day, don't eat to many Easter Eggs and spare a thought for Dave Anderson (aka Venn Diagram aka D.A. Photography) who is running his first 10k today!


Go on sonna!




The Pogues ~ Fiesta


"I am Francisco Vasquez Garcia

I am welcome to Almeria

We have sin gas and con leche

We have fiesta and feria

We have the song of the chochona

We have brandy and half corona

And Leonardo and his accordione

And Kalamari and macarroni


Come all you rambling boys of pleasure

And ladies of easy leisure

We must say Adiós! until we see

Almeria once again"
