Pea Thief!

Mr.F thought that the drunk pigeon was eating his peas but no. Its this little bird :/ and his pushy buddies (I swear its like a scene out of a Hitchcock movie when they all show up). They leave the peas in this photo alone but I guess the ones to the left are fair game. Well better them then the slugs (last year the slugs were HUGE! and everywhere)

Some buildings for this weeks Monday photos :)

Mcmanus art gallery in Dundee. Its been having work done for the last few months, and the fences are still up so not done yet.

A church in Arbroath when I went to the college the other day.

And the train station, notice the top of the building. It says 1911 :)

Arbroath abbey from the crossing bridge over some train tracks. You can't really see it walking around but the bridge was up pretty high so could get a view of it :)

On the top of the building I went in to :) Love old buildings and love finding these little signs on them. Since I've been taking the camera with us everywhere I have noticed them more.

Another one to drive me insane :p I'm not 100% sure if I will scrap this one and try again as I don't really like how the eye looks at the moment but I really like how the beak is coming along. I thought I should maybe try a smaller bird piece with pointillism before I tackled a bigger one and not have any idea about how to render feathers. 6 left! (well maybe 8 to make up for posting 2 WIP cards)


  1. Love 'pointilisim' - looks great:) The photos of the buildings area really interesting to see :D
