I use Instagram. Mostly because it's fun but also there are so many talented artists whose work I enjoy following. I found a profile called 'lovelydeadcrap' and was intrigued as to what the content was. Yes, it was lovely. Yes, it was dead (mostly) but crap it wasn't. A gallery of wonderful images of decaying plants, flowers, etc.
I loved it so much I wondered if I could find some 'crap' of my own to photograph. A short walk around Scalloway proved fruitful, to a small degree. In Shetland flowers and plants decay quickly due to the wind and sea spray.
Here is a very short slideshow of the ones that were successful. Hope you like them. I put them on Instagram. I'm right there under 'artofordinary'. Feel free to take a look at my Insta Profile.
I hope you like what I bring here from the Shetland Islands. It will not only be landscapes but other images I hope you will find enjoyable. Thank you!
