Snowed in For Xmas

Well not quite....but almost!! The snow reigned terror over the whole country according to the news - i mean it was a nuisance after a time sure but we managed just fine! I went out and took a few snow pictures, now i know i've posted a fair few snow pictures already on this blog but well.......tough here are a couple more!! It's only literally a couple so you'll be okay i promise.

Principle Arts Officer meeting rescheduled

I was supposed to be meeting with the principle arts officer at Herefrod Council before Christmas, sadly because of the snowy weather I was unable to get into Hereford to see her. Thank fully it's rescheduled for 7th January and I must say i'm looking forward to it!

Going to speak to her about the possiblitly of setting up an Arts Programme within the Hereford NHS Trust. They don't have one at the moment and I think it will be a fantastic thing for the hospital to have. Art in all it's forms can, and does, help improve the emotional and therefore physical state of people. Even if it's the slightest of things, like making someone smile because it rekindled a past memory....this is of course better than sitting gloomily thinking about the bad things!!

"Morning campers! Rise & shine...and don't forget your booties because it's cold out there today. It's cold out there everyday."

Frosty frosty frosty at the moment. I went out to take some pictures, covered up, many many layers and a hat and i think i still got frostbite on my head!!! Here are some frosty photos that i took this week.

Many of my images are dark-atmospheric photographs, there is usually an "edge" to the image. But a few have actually come out as a little bit creepy (they were meant to it's fine!)

Farmyard Animals.....Any animals really!

Was going through pictures choosing ones which would work on the greeting cards, and came across a picture of cows that i took last year and forgot about - I like it when I've taken a picture and perhaps I dont like it at the time or it does nothing for me so i leave it but dont delete it, because down the line I can see it and think how much i really like it (too much time on my hands? maybe!)

Anyway, i found the cow picture and decided I'd post a few of the other animal pictures i've got. Ones that aren't dead!
