Todays challenge #64millionartists #ramble

Today’s #64millionartists challenge:

Find somewhere to sit where you feel comfortable (it can be your favourite place or a new environment). Sit there for 5 minutes and notice everything. Notice what’s around you… notice the colours, textures, sounds, smells. Just reflect for 5 minutes about the environment you’re in.

That’s an interesting challenge but these challenges are also about sharing. How can I share my surroundings? I think I have to become really creative today! todays challenge

Perceptions of risk #investments

Perceptions of risk changed this week with FTSE 250 companies now appearing to be a greater risk than before Carillion went into liquidation. The government, in my opinion, made a colossal mistake. They sold shares not long ago in Lloyd’s banking group because they believe in ‘privatisation’. Now they let Carillion fail because they believe in letting the market decide. God help us if Jacob Rees-Mogg ever reaches a position of power with his Conservative ideas and antiquated ideas based on Catholicism.

How do we define art? #art #photography

How do we define art? I found this definition:

The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

Composition and perspective challenge #photography

Last week, I challenged you to take a few photos with a narrow aperture. This week, I want you to think about composition and perspective. When you take a landscape photo, you need to give it some perspective so the viewer sees depth. Lowry did paintings of simple figures what were once described as matchstick men. His genius was getting the proportions right and creating depth in his paintings.

Creativity and beliefs #ramble #Sunday

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I share my thoughts with you. I want to go out today and wander around taking photos but the weather forecast isn’t very good. I can look forward to a temperature of just 5C. I had plans for 2018 but most of them have been put on hold. I am doing the #TheJanuaryChallenge and that’s going well. I have to build a boat today. I’ll need some creativity for that…

All that glitters #finance #investments

All that glitters is not gold, used to be a popular saying. It seems many people are attracted by anything that glitters these days and people are turning into magpies buying anything that glitters and frittering their money away.

Experiments in art #challenge #art

It is day 11 of the #TheJanuaryChallenge of #64million artists. Today’s challenge is quite a good one, it is try something new. I think about trying something new most days. Yesterday, I tried to create some new images using money, fivers and pound coins to be exact. I also did yesterday’s challenge using money. Yesterday’s challenge was to make something with an A4 piece of paper. Ended up with this:

Narrow aperture challenge #photography

If you read last week’s photography post you will know I set you a challenge to take a few photos with a wide aperture, in fact, wide open. This week, I am setting you a challenge to take a few photos with a narrow aperture. This is a little more difficult because you have to judge how narrow it should be. Take a look at this shot:

Design a jumper? #64MillionArtists #challenge

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I share my innermost thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? I’m still doing January challenge of #64MillionArtists

Today’s challenge was to design a jumper. I admit I tried to do it when I was half asleep and so I designed a jumper with pockets to keep my hands warm and shoulder patches to stop the strap of my camera bag slipping off. Then I realised my design was almost identical to the cardigan I’m wearing. I had a couple more goes and then I admitted defeat.

Share dealing and diversification #investments

Investments for most people just means some peace of mind. They are an insurance policy in case disaster strikes and if there is a real financial disaster such as a global economic crisis then gold is the investment to have. Investing in the stock market is fraught with problems because you can’t buy directly, you have to go through a broker who will undoubtedly be either not very good or will charge you outrageous dealing fees. I trade through the Halifax share dealing service and try to use the reduced dealing fee once a month. I’m not sure when that will be this month but it will only be for 2 hours.

Creative thinking about life #creative

Usually, on a Thursday, I write a post about being thrifty and saving money but it is quite easy these days to shop around and get the best price by using the internet. There is lots of advice on the net about saving money, too. When I started this blog I decided to make it more like a magazine than a blog about my life and the things I do. I have decided to make it more like a blog now and write more from experience. I employ a lot of creative thinking in my life so that will make a better subject for my blog.

A Creative challenge #photography

This month I’m doing a creative challenge set by #64MillionArtists. There is a new challenge each day throughout January. Yesterday’s challenge was to give ourselves an award. People had different ideas on the type of award they could give themselves. I decided to design a simple certificate for my award and what else would I give myself an award for, but photography!
