I have recently been creating images that express the dark time of the year, the period from the end of October through to the winter solstice – the time when ghosts and ghouls may appear and strange things go bump in the night. Today let me introduce you to a priestess, who performs a secret ritual to conjure up the magical forces of this last month of the year.
As we continue to venture towards the longest night of the year we may experience dark illusions and meet strange creatures. One of these is the lady, who materialised, seemingly from nowhere, one recent evening and insisted in reading the Tarot for me. When we were finished she vanished into thin air before my eyes.
After my well received radio ad “Happy endings at Wolf Kettler Photographer”, which I wrote in the style of a 1940s detective novel, we have now forwarded to the present day. In my Christmas ad I am turning villain in a matter of mistaken identity.
When I got up just after five this morning I saw that we were having the first frost of this winter. Compared to last year we are about a week later and the frost and fog are less severe. I know because I photographed it.
Thirteen gorgeous photographs of my cats – Kaspar, Camillo, Domino and Holly – in a fantastic wall calendar for 2014.
As we are progressing on our autumn journey from Samhain, or Halloween, towards the winter solstice, we can enjoy cosy, long evenings by candlelight.
The view from my studio window early this morning – raindrops are clinging to the electricity and telephone wires and heavy rain is falling.
I recently introduced you to two gorgeous cats that I met in Greece this summer. Here is another individual with whom I became acquainted.
Time did not stop whilst I was away on holiday and “Happy Endings at Wolf Kettler Photographer”, my radio photo session mystery, has moved onto the next episode. Catch up with it now!
Last night I published the latest version of my website, which is a renovation and a clean and polish rather than a complete makeover. The updated site provides certain elements of key information in an easier to access way, whilst on the home page there is a gorgeous and sexy new image slider.
Earlier this year I launched a series of local radio ads, which I wrote in the style of a serialised 1940s detective novel. Currently playing is episode four, which you can hear on 97fm in the Devizes area or online at Fantasy Radio. You can also catch up with the first three episodes right here.
