Graffiti Canvas Art - urban art

This is a new graffiti canvas artwork I added to the didgi widgi web site today. Seemed to be on a bit of a roll today as I have created 4 new canvas artworks for the web site and started on 2 different pieces of wall art. Out of the 4 I created today, this is my favourite one and have decided to keep it as a landscape.

Photography - Dandelions



When I was younger and played out all the time I would come across fields of dandelions. If anyone picked any up someone would say they made you wet your bed. I can remember feeling devastated as I picked them and then instantly threw them back on the ground as I was told this. So everytime I see a dandelion that's what it reminds me of. Funny what memories you carry with you in your adult mind.

David Bowie - Aladdin Sane

Listening to the lp Aladdin Sane on this sunny Monday morning.  Never seen Bowie live and hope I get chance to do so one day. Saw some old footage of Bowie that had been found of him from the 70s playing a gig in New York, now that's a concert I would've loved to have been at. Someone hurry up and invent a time machine.

Photography - Selling Jewelry On The Beach - Amalfi Coast, Italy


Rather him than me! This guy was trying to sell jewelry to sun bathers chilling out on the beach along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. It was 32 degrees that day and all I wanted to do was slowly walk along the coast and take photographs nevermind carry a bag of jewelry around.

Photography - Face in the Cliff Edge, Amalfi Coast, Italy


Walking along the coast along the Amalfi Coast in Italy from Maiori to Minori and saw this face appear in the craggy cliffs. Walked for around 7 hours that day just taking photos and being in awe of the beauty that is the Amalfi Coast.

Photography - Maiori, Amalfi Coast, Italy Beach

I never made it on the beach on the Amalfi Coast as I'm not really a sun bathing kind of girl and besides, there were too many photographs to be taken of the beautiful buildings and scenery. This is a photo I took of Maiori beach on my last day. Back in England now where its 12 degrees with sun and showers, in fact when I landed in Manchester airport it started to rain and I smiled as the rain trickled down my face waiting for the taxi. I do love the English Weather.


Photography - Minori, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Minori on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Everywhere you look on the Amalfi Coast in Italy is a postcard. It's hard not to just constantly take photographs.


Photography - Amalfi Coast, Italy

Took another photo whilst on the bus back to the hotel of these buildings. I was so glad for the air conditioning on the bus as it was reaching 32 degrees outside, something my body can't get used to being from the North of England.:-)

Photography - Graffiti Train

Photo of the train we caught from Sorrento to Pompeii covered in graffiti.


Photography - Musicians on Italian Train

On a train to pompeii to see the ruins and these musicians boarded and played for us all.


Photography - Amalfi Coast, Italy

Out shopping in Positano and spotted the top of this church whilst walking down an endless flight of steps. Taking this photo gave me a break. Will have huge calf muscles when I get back from this break along the Amalfi Coast as I have climbed and decended so many steps its untrue.


Photography - Amalfi Beach, Italy

Walking along back to the hotel in Maiori, Amalfi Coast in Italy and I noticed all these sun beds on the beach. It was late in the day so they were all empty.


Photography - Amalfi Coast, Italy

Seemed to have taken quite a lot of the Amalfi Coast in Italy on my phone from the bus. I'm surprised they have come out so clear as you do tend to sway about it on the bus as there are countless bends.


Photography - Amalfi Coast, Italy

Another photo taken from my mobile phone whilst on a bus driving along the Amalfi Coast, Italy.


Photography - Amalfi Coast, Italy

Took another photo of this residential area on the Amalfi Coast in Italy as I was on the bus going back to Maiori.


Photography - Hotel on Amalfi Coast, Italy

This is actually a nice looking hotel right on the corner of part of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. It does look like a run down shack on this photo and I suppose I do like how it Looks on here but it is actually a beautiful old building.


Photography - Old Fiat 500, Amalfi Coast Italy

I think this is an old Fiat 500 which I caught on my mobile phone driving along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I have seen quite a few of these Fiat 500s over here in Italy and they are all in immaculate condition. They look a fun car to drive and it has been added to my list of cars to buy one day, next to a white morris minor with red leather seats.


Photography - Amalfi Coast, Italy

Another photo I took whilst flying around the bends on a bus along the Amalfi Coast in Italy.


Photography - Postiano, Amalfi Coast, Italy

The hill you have to walk up to get to the bus stop in Postiano on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Not a big hill but it was 32 degrees that day and I felt I'd lost half a stone by the time I had walked to the top.


Photography - Italian Newspapers

Out shopping and saw these Italian newspapers on a stand. Took this photo and turned it black and white and here is the outcome.


Photography - Amalfi, Italy

Would love on of these small cars. Took this photo in Amalfi, Italy waiting for the bus to take us back to Maiori.

Down in Amalfi waiting for a bus to take us back to Maiori.
