"Feet".Some more images from my "Feet" project. Yes...l know l notice and record the stangest things. This is often said about me. BUT that is what makes life interesting! Open your eyes to whats all around you and see what happens. These images come from Barcelona, Paris, Rome and all over the U.K.

"Feet" These are a few of the feet/shoes from my project "Feet". Have you noticed that shoes differ greatly from country to country? Last summer l was in Barcelona and l couldn't get over how bright,unusual and different foot wear was there compared to Britain. Then later in Paris (name dropper!) l noticed again how different their footwear was to either Barcelona or London. Next time you are out on the streets(!) look!!!It is interesting...Honest!

CCTV images. I have posted some images from the project CCTV "No Consent" on other sites on the Web and got some really super comments back. It is great when other photographers and artists from around the world rate your work...especially when your mother doesn't understand them and sees no point in your art and your tutors think they aren't strong enough!!! Gives you courage to carry on. That is the thought for today! Ha!

CCTV camera's discuss!
The sun is shinning and it's snowing! Very Weird. I have been back in the U.K for about 7 1/2 years (can't be that long!!) and l still haven't got used to the weather. I don't honestly remember it being so changeable or maybe l'm having a "senior moment" as my children say!
Anyway, back to the CCTV camera's. Had a response back from a man in Canada who said they don't have them. Just think...some where you aren't under the camera all the time! If anyone is reading this out in the big wide world and you have NO CCTV camera's... let me know. Also send me any images you have if funny or just weird.
Since starting this project l have been looking at CCTV camera's, as you do, and didn't realise how many makes and models there are! What an exciting life l lead!
Must admit, no matter that l am being watched and being the watcher at the same time (if you see what l mean?), the "Smile" notice with the CCTV camera on this double decker bus,(one of the images on today's blog) always makes me smile. Clever people these Bus Companies.
Well art work calling, also husband due home in an hour or so, no housework or ironing done...and l don't know what we are having for supper.Better go and act like a wife/housewife...how does one do that?
