The Ring

Back in the heady, long-lost days of early summer I posted here about a photo project I was thinking of taking on. I have a small - and I mean small, in fact it will not fit past the first knuckle of my little finger - haematite ring which I thought would make an interesting prop for some arty photos. The ring has been everywhere my camera has been since then and, while it hasn't always been possible or appropriate to bring it out and use it, I have taken lots of photos in lots of different places. 

On the whole I'm pleased with some of the results and I think I will keep it with me and see what I can come up with over the coming months. With the photos that follow I won't say where they were taken (though I'd be happy to explain any of the pictures if you ask me to.) I hope you like them and would welcome any comments or criticisms that you have. I know that I won't get better unless I know where I'm going wrong, so I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Without further ado, esteemed ladies and  gentlemen I give you...
