For the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Despite having visited Girton College Cambridge in February, and staying there for a few nights on a shadowing scheme (which included my 17th birthday!) this image which I made some time back has now gained new significance after the Royal Wedding two days ago, in which William & Kate gained the titles Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, given to them by the Queen, as is often done upon Royal marriages.

Although they don't seem to have an obvious connection to the city, I really like those titles, and am happy I have a relevant image to show made from photos I took first-hand!
I hope everyone got to watch the wedding, which was spectacular, and wish the new Royals every luck :)

Happy Easter/ Joyeux Paques!(...and that's about all the languages I know)

Random cat-like image :) I didn't think about it when I made it but it actually reminds me of Hallow'een? I think it's the black cat and then the orange tints in the background, although I did put a lot of flowers in to make it more summery! I'm on holiday from school right now which seems to have added a definite lighter tone to my work...wonder how long this will last...

Edited the detail in this picture but did not take it :p, I just loved the idea of the fish in the bubble, the key, and finally the pebble-mesh background, which was blended with the original grain background of the photo I found :) It's all about the details, small print, fine lines, whatever you want to call it - much like life itself, it's the little things that really count.

Girly. Because I felt like it. It's been too long since I did any proper surreal stuff or cubism, for that matter, and this photo I found was too good to waste - I've always loved glass perfume bottles, especially coloured ones. They are the height of class :) still have Dior's "hypnotic poison" perfume I won at a raffle when I was about 10, and seriously did not know how expensive (and nice) perfume can be...
