Happy New Year

Screen at St Giles

The screen inside the door to St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh. I loved the way the light came through it, reminding me of the different branches of life that we can take.

Happy New Year everyone. Hope 2015 brings you health and happiness, challenges and satisfaction, understanding and joy.


About jingsandthings

I am me. What do I like? Colour Shapes Textures Paintings, photographs, sculptures, woven tapestries, wonderful materials. The love of materials probably comes from my father who was a textile buyer, and I grew up hearing the names of mills and manufacturers which sounded magical and enticing. Glass in all its soft and vibrant colours and flowing shapes, even sixties glass which makes its own proud statement. A book I can immerse myself in. Meals with family or friends with lots of chat and laughter (and probably a bottle or two of wine). The occasional trip abroad to experience the sights, sounds, food, conversation, quality of light and warmth of other countries. To revel in differences and be amazed by similarities. I like to create and to experience, to try and to achieve. And then there are words – read, heard, written at my keyboard, or scrawled on sticky notes, or along the edges of dog-eared supermarket receipts excavated from the unexplored nooks of my handbag. What do I dislike? Cold Snow Bad design Fast food Condescension

    Thank you Dorothy. Wishing you the same. Carol

  2. Thank you. I was so taken with it I used it as the image on our Christmas card this year. I keep finding shapes in it that to me have meaning.

    Hope you have a wonderful 2015.

    I just love this image. I wish I could go to Edinburgh and see the screen inside the door in the light, too. Your images take me there, if only in my imagination. I am glad you gave us the detail of putting the image on your Christmas card. That brought it even more sharply to life for me.

  4. When I saw the screen and the way the light was coming through it I knew it would make a good image and just hoped some of the shots I had taken would come out well. When I later looked at them on the computer I knew I had the image for our Christmas card. I’m so pleased you and others like it too.

  5. Happy New Year, Dorothy! And here’s to many more beautiful things in 2015!

  6. Happy new year to you Tara, and hope it’s filled with goodies — like more blog success for you.
