The other week a lady came to camera club to give a talk about her work as an art teacher, the way she uses photography and how the subjects cross over and interact. During her talk she told us how she had started taking a photo of a tree at Derriford hosp each month to see the changes. She now swaps that photo with a research worker in the artic. I really liked this idea and fancied having a go. So a quick email to my cousin's daughter in Australia and we are set up to do a photo a month of our chosen place for a year starting this month. It would appear we are both as bad as each other in trying to decide on a location, I have chosen many and photographed them - then at the final hour as I was about to click send with the first photo I changed my mind again and settled for the view that greets me every morning and one that I see the changes but don't appreciate them fully. So here is my first of twelve images of my chosen view - My back yard!
