Pictures of the Week (Featuring the photographs of James Arthur)

James Arthur: is a retired civil engineer with an interest in photography going back to childhood.  He moved to Barton Turf in 2013 after a working lifetime which took him to over 60 countries. 

He most enjoys the subjects which people often see but do not notice – a familiar object in a different light, a reflection, a shadow – he shares with us here some samples of these images.

NORFOLK HAIKU

CART GAP

Steel piles driven hard

Salt tides sea air in cahoots

Make soft sculpture

 

 

 

 

 

 

REFLECTION ON BARTON BROAD

Solstice fractals play

Wriggle deftly on the water

And then are gone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IRSTEAD RIVER BANK

River bank buds wait

Hidden halo weather front

Or rising angel?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TURF FEN MILL

Crafted years ago

Wood planks turn in air

Springtime birds look out
