Still Life

Not a work of Art. Yet full of artists textures; Thus, a masterpiece.   © Tom Tide 2016  

A dance in triple time

  A dance in three movements. All of expression is here, from rhythmic rise to syncopated sway. To flow again.   Beneath, a gentle roll presses on tide-scoured stones. Borne aloft by a lunar score.   Above is the floating hang; the breath before the crescendo.   At the pinnacle, spume- tossed sprites waltz, then pirouette in to…

Self Portrait

This is me. No grandiloquent celebration- Just a snapshot on a cold morning. Selfie? I loathe the word. No this is me making a record through a record through a mirror through a lens. This is me today. Right now. Hello.   © Tom Tide 2016  

A picture of freedom

Colours etched deep in hues of light and dark, Kaleidoscopic texture, sharp and pure; The world seen from the viewpoint of a Lark, In every image lies a subtle lure.   Within this scene, a forest wreathed in mist: Awakening from slumber trees stand proud.

Time to drift. To imagine breathing underwater, gliding with eyes open. Through a portal bedecked with green finery, To a of perpetual,…

Sails of Silver

It is a very valuable experience to watch a person engaging with their passions. It is a privilege to observe, and one that I always value greatly. A person may embrace their chosen field with grace and serenity, or hurl themselves at it with full force.  However it manifests itself, it is always mesmerising. What…

Tom Tide

Today I had a transformative experience. I have felt like Tom Tide inside my head for some time now. I always write at night, and there is an intoxicating freedom to diving in to words and ideas and emotions. When I write, I feel that I know my voice, and to a certain extent how…

Alchemy

Dave Fieldhouse is an alchemist. He takes separate elements and materials and transforms them in to something beautiful, complex and valuable. Priceless, in fact. He is a landscape photographer who creates strikingly beautiful images of land and sea, in all of its voluptuous and craggy forms. Every one of his images speaks to me in…
