If you imagine pictures you have seen of brain, what comes to mind? What does the brain look like? Well people might say that the brain looks like wrinkles and has many folds. Or they may say that the brain looks like it is covered in hills and valleys. Looks like a Walnut or a Cauliflower. The brain is sometimes called grey matter, but is it really grey?
What does your brain look like? Is it soft and squidgy or hard and rubbery?
Actually … your brain has the consistency of warm butter!
I asked people to hold out their hands and imagine placing, in them, an object that suggests a brain, or resembles its shape. What would you choose? These were some of those objects or ideas suggested:
Scrambled Eggs, Sharp as a Tack, Memory and Memories, Foods, Wool and Wires, Chia Seeds and Simply Clenched Fists!

Just returned from our short interlude navigating the Brecon and Mon Canal. Life in the slow lane, 2 miles and hour, bird song, fields of buttercups, the bleat of sheep and the chugging engine of our narrowboat, Country Fair. The boat's name must have been an omen as we enjoyed a wonderful week of sunshine, still, muggy evenings and only a sprinkle of rain. Wonderfully relaxing.
Images from our recent trip to the tulip fields in Holland. We visited at the end of April catching the tulips in their prime. We met up with Charlotte Bellamy an English photographer resident in Holland who guided us around the massed ranks of tulips.
Some images from our recent visit to Holland when we basked in beautiful sunshine and took in the sites. Holland, a symmetrical country, clean and ordered with an amazing road network was a real pleasure to visit. We took in the touristy sights of Amsterdam on our final day.
Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe, is one of the world's largest flower gardens. It is situated in Lisse, the Netherlands. We arrived as the gates opened and caught these amazing gardens before the hoardes of tourists arrived.
A photoshoot with Kristina Locke, with a clown theme. My thoughts and plans for the effect I visualised were realized and I am very pleased with the results straight out of the camera. I will enjoy processing them.
