Another trip to Hengistbury Head today, it was raining unfortunately which is not so good when trying to work with a piece of paper that is twice the size of you but I had some help from a lovely friend! I took two sheets out that were about 4 - 5 metres long and a couple of thin strips about the same length. Some really nice colours on the paper today and a good spot to work despite the hundreds of mosquitos!!

I had some business cards printed the other day. I used details from three of my prints, each using a different element of nature, rain, sea, and earth. The only problem: forgot to put my email address on! I did put my website on and my email can be found there so its not a complete disaster.

A good person for inspiration for my own work, Daro Montag buries film and leaves it to decompose and be attacked by 'mirco-organisims'. He then digs the film up, allows to dry and makes these beautiful photographs from the 'negative'. The work seems more based around science than my work but I really like his ideas around knowing the earth and soil in the place that you are in.

Photos from the exhibition yesterday. It was a great day, really sunny so lots of people came down. The work I exhibited was all made was created on the beach at Boscombe so it was really the perfect place to show them. I didn't sell any unfortunately but quite a lot of people asked how they were made etc and seemed interested. I think the framed pieces seem to look the best but the clear pins I used to display the rest also worked really well.

Spent most of today setting up for the exhibition in Boscombe on Saturday that I am showing work in. Its been a very busy week and hopefully I'll be able to relax a little on Saturday and maybe sell some work! More and better quality photos to come soon.

Arose at 6am this morning and walked with my big rolls of paper to Queens Park again. A remarkable sunrise, absolutely stunning. The black and white paper seemed to do almost the opposite of what it did last time, the background went a slightly pink colour while the marks made by the crushed leaves turned blue. I also tried the same with a large sheet of colour paper, not quite as good as the black and white but some marks appeared.
