CSI #121

Winter has well & truly arrived today with no gradual easing us into it :(  Rain & freezing temperatures, but a perfect day for some serious creations. I have been lucky enough once again to be asked to be a Special Deputy for CSI: Colour, Stories, Inspiration for the month of May. The new Case File has gone live:

More beautiful colours, although colours which I don't normally work with a lot, but here it is:

 This is where we stayed when we visited London. In the top photo you can actually see some blue sky - never lasted long though, hence why I've chosen the colour gray as my background. The intricate gates remind me of the gates at the entrance to Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park which was only a 5 minute walk from here. And the chippy street light is also a reminder of the street scenes we saw. I've used vellum as the glass in the lamps.

We were on the third floor with windows that looked down onto the street. When our DD visited us every evening after work, she would stay for dinner & her Dad would then walk her to the Tube Station (if her partner wasn't with her). I would stand at the window waiting for her to look up which she always did, give her a big wave, then they would disappear around the corner. It's funny how quickly we get into little habits, even while on holidays, & it's little things like this that stick in my mind. Unfortunately our apartment was a "studio" so didn't lend itself to having someone stay over & DD is house-sharing, so we weren't able to actually stay with her, but we saw her everyday anyway.

As per the Case File, I have journalled 4 interesting things about my photos.

Thanks for looking & I hope you get a chance to play along at CSI this week. Or at least go & check out the amazing inspiration by the Design Team.
