From my Sketchbook

A sketch I did of an Irish coastal scene. The place seemed abandoned with an air of loneliness about it.

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. Yes, but where a family once lived and thrived the simple life. A warm home, small and quaint, compared to the giant houses of today. This one, I picture a warm golden glow coming from the inside from a lantern. And the fireplace going on a chilly night. I just love your drawings. I can get lost in my own stories as I view them.

    1. You have a wonderful imagination, Sandra. I too imagined a hearth around which the family found warmth and sustenance. Thank you for your kind words and what a gift it is to get lost in your own stories.

    1. Hi Joni
      I’m deeply grateful for the nomination – thank you, but I hope you’ll understand I would rather not respond to the nomination as it is something I don’t do. Again thank you for you kindness.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment, LuAnne. I have to confess that I really just dabble around. I’m learning too. I enjoy doing it. I like the zen-like feeling of sketching.
