From My Sketchbook

A scene near our village just longing to be sketched. I had the distinct feeling of this being a restful place in spite of the signs of neglect. So it found its way into my sketchbook.

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in The United Kingdom. I feel that more than anything else, nature, and the objective things around us, convey a speech and a message we always need to listen to and follow. This kind of listening is life-giving and there is a certain form spirituality about it. In this blog, through the the photographic image and accompanying words, I’ve tried to share this experience as simply as I can. There is an underlying beauty in nature we all need to see and experience, especially in this day and age as we struggle to save our planet. Most of my shots are taken with a Fujifilm XT100 camera and my Iphone. I’m no professional Photographer, but I do enjoy outdoor walks with my simple gear trying to capture what I see and experience.

  1. That is so beautiful, what a wonderful gift you have Don. It is showing times past, neglected now, but if you look deep enough I can see the trees in bloom. And flowers along the wall on a summer’s day. It is telling a story to me.

    1. Thank you Sandra. So glad it conveys a story to you. The place is full of history and no doubt the lovely picture you describe. In fact, in Spring and Summer it becomes something of what you see.
