    Instagram

    I'm currently posting art and photography on Instagram and wondered if any other members also use Insta? If you want to connect you can find me here https://www.instagram.com/francescaperrycarboni/

    My main photography project is borrowed from something that was going around last year on social media - I'm documenting my life by posting a photo each day, the original idea was for a week, I've decided to attempt an entire year. All of the photos are without comment or explanation and are in black and white.

    Most of the rest of what I do has come out of a connection to a wonderful woman, Wendy Ann Greenhalgh, who teaches how to use mindfulness and the breath to connect to inner creativity, which she believes we all have. She embraces all forms of mark making, as well as writing and photography. Don't be put off by the mindfulness tag, I know it's an overused buzzword for just about anything at the moment, but Wendy Ann, a Buddhist practitioner for many years, really understands her subject and how to get others to engage with it. She's also written two fabulous books. Her website can be found here https://www.artofmindfulness.org.uk/

    I especially recommend her to anyone who feels they would like some kind of creative activity but doesn't know where to start or feels intimidated. Don't be afraid, let go and jump right in.

    Very nice. My daughter keeps saying I am falling behind the curve. Perhaps I should become more technologically proficient.

    Thank you for sharing Meitou. I really like the black and white images. I am not good at describing art but your images seem to have a real textural element.
