Storming Autumn

Panoramic Rainbow in Manchester by Mark WallisThe Manchester sky was full of angry clouds and sheets of rain – the kind of rain that sets off car alarms. In the space of an hour, I was treated to a spectacular double rainbow, a pre-Raphaelite sunset and a Lon Chaney moon.

Sunflower – Digital Painting

Sunflower - Digital Painting by Mark Wallis at The Vibes
It’s the height of summer, so let’s see some sunflowers! This is another attempt at digital painting, this time showing my source material. Below is the edited photograph which it’s based on.

And here is the crappy old iPhone picture which the whole thing sprung from. It’s a challenge to see which pictures have potential, and which ones really need deleting.

Barbecue Sunset

It’s been a while since I made a film, and this is two minutes of sun, song and sausages. The allotment is the most wonderful place to chill, although I got sunburn (in Manchester?) and lightly grilled my face while cooking al fresco. And if I say folk music, sunsets, cats and characters, all surrounded by wild flowers then you’ll know the evening ticked all my hippy boxes. Viva la vodka! Featuring Gordon Whitelock on acoustic guitar. Bliss.

The Rich and the Random

Here are some rich and random textures from my picture vault. The most recent is the arched doorway from Whalley Range. The sun was streaming into my humble phone camera resulting in a real dud which I rescued using Photoshop Express and Tadaa. All on the phone, all on the hop. As you can tell, I’m still amazed by technology.

Pimm’s on the Allotment

Oh how terribly English! This week I went back to Shaun’s allotment, which is now in full bloom. Because Brit Summer is such an unpredictable lass, the nation tends to go slightly crazy when the sun comes out, and you all know how I like my rays. I grab the beautiful details with my phone, usually at random, and record them here so you can all see how I view the world. It’s not a charmed life that I lead, so I appreciate those little glimpses of beauty – nature in full parade.
