OMG! I’ve Got Pareidolia

What is Pareidolia? To quote my source of all knowledge… “Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists (e.g., in random data).

I Like The Way He Moves

Take a walk on the wild side Greg walking along the coast near the lighthouse in Torry, Aberdeen. It is very rare that Greg will go out walking with me so when he does I make sure I capture the moment. I started doing a little editing… I cropped the photo… I then wanted to […]

Solitude? Dreamer? Both!

They May Say I’m A Dreamer I love taking photos of people from a distance or from behind them – I think it shows a sense of the unknown.  Usually it is me taking the photos of other people from the distance but I was pleasantly surprised to discover a couple of old photos of me taken in […]

What Are The Kelpies? The Kelpies are two big massive horse head things by the side of the road near Falkirk, well at least that’s the Steviepedia description anyway… The official Wikipedia description is as follows… “The Kelpies are 30-metre high horse-head sculptures, standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, […]
