A small Tiffany style lamp and some lovely soft mauve coloured ladies bags, heart shaped photo frame and heart shaped and large silver jewellery boxes.

Looking through some photographs from April last year, I came across these taken in the Highcross Shopping Mall in Leicester. I love the colours in the ties and the number 7 picked out in black. Taken with permission in 7 Camicie. The colours in the Swarovski shop I though were eye catching too. The single figure in the corridor of glass, full of reflections and the modern design applied to the glass on the John Lewis store are interesting too.

After a few morning covered in cloud. I was, this morning, treated to a wonderfully coloured sunrise on my morning walk.

This is a four shot panoramic taken with the phone, dratted power lines. By the time I had a clear view the colours were much more muted.

I took these photographs with my iPhone yesterday 8th January 2011 at The Wheel Restaurant in Ticknall, Derbyshire. One of my favourite places to eat. I have done a blend between two exposures from the iPhone. In one the top of the image was severely blown out. It is still a bit bright, the photograph will give you the design in the painting. Measures about 1.75m x 1m in size and it hangs above the stairs.

In the photograph below the top of the painting is blown out. I was taken by the geometry of the mirror and the reflection.

These photographs were taken during a visit to Birmingham Botanical gardens on Wednesday 29th December 2010. Some very exotic plants here and well worth a further visit at a different time of the growing season. Website here.
