My Bio
They call people born where I am from 'sand grown'
which is how I chose my deviant name
We grow from the sand...
The sea, wind & gulls, are background music
Like sand, there is nothing much to catch hold of,
but on a sunny, blue sky day. everything is golden...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I take photographs, I do some digital art,
I draw in pencil & paint in watercolour
- some of this I will present here, as time goes by

Welcome to deviantArt :)

I'm pleased you like it :) Thank you for your kind comment.

Book of Shadows 02 - page 6

These pages are very much the way they are. Only a very few are in black and white. I suppose you could try making a version of your own using the originals as inspiration.

Thanks for the llama, I will take good care of it. I'm not a microscopist and only an occasional photographer these days. I'm intrigued by the platyhelminthes, a sort of tape worm type thing? To me they appear to be similar to a sea cucumber, but very much smaller of course. For a while I was doing a driving job which involved early starts. There were remarkable skies and on occasion I took my camera along to try capture some of the sights. Flocks of birds massing in the air ready to go into town after roosting in the countryside. Ghostly, misty, otherworldly, sometimes disappearing leaving only a few patches as the sun arose. Skies that looked on fire, blood red, changing. I got up deliberately early one morning to try to catch some of it, but it is elusive almost willing to only reveal itself when IT is ready.
