Across The Pond 1~ Jan 31 2017

I’ve written before about my good friend Kathy who lives in Rochester,new York USA, and who I met (virtually) on Flickr, can’t remember how many years ago. We stay in touch on Facebook and messenger and also here where she has her own photographic website HERE. In 2014 Phil and I went over to visit Kathy and her husband Dave, and had a great holiday, our first, but hopefully, not last trip to the U.S.A. (I think we’ll be let in again!) We were so looked after, and taken to lots of beautiful places, and Kathy & Dave and their friends that we met were all lovely people, and really welcoming to us. One of our best holidays ever. Kathy is a really unique photographer, a whizz with artistic iPhone shots, and also with her fuji. I love her work.
So this year we are doing a photographic collaboration, where both of us, on the last day of each month, will take an iPhone square shot on a given theme, and put them into a dyptich, side by side. No rules other than to make the shot square and on theme, process however we like and see what we come with.

January 31st theme is ‘Water’, and because our respective weather systems are both set to miserable we both chose to shoot indoors, and here’s what we came up with.

    I must have been channelling ‘The Godfather’, as I typed that. (That’s my excuse, and I am sticking to it…) 🙂
