Hello! I’ve been out and about a bit this week, including a visit to a local art group where we were looking at composition using a panorama. I think it’s a wonderful format which can be used for many subjects. It allows scope for storytelling, (the Bayeux Tapestry being one of the earliest and largest examples) cartoons and film all use the format – and you can do interesting things by turning it up on its end. Many cameras and phones offer a panorama setting these days, so it’s fun to try some. Have a lovely weekend! Here are some of my panoramas:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
Hello! I wanted to write a post of thanks to readers of ‘Racing Lines’, as it is three years since it began. In that short time, I have been amazed and delighted by the response. I now have the honour of one of my posts being featured on ‘Freshly Pressed’. Creating a blog has been a wonderful experience and the outcomes more than I could possibly have imagined. Thanks very much indeed!
