Following a brief trip to Rome last year, I was inspired by the city’s ancient surfaces I came across. This lead to creating the following images from my observations in the Eternal City.
With my next college project underway, I took a visit to Bushy Park to test out a newly introduced technique. Time lapse photography. Still getting my head round the concept as there's a lot to consider when undertaking this way of capturing movement.
Nevertheless, it gave me the opportunity to practice in my favourite spot & concoct these new abstracts.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Rachel Braine at a local The Athena Network Summer Party. This motivating organisation encourages women in business to inspire and support others for greater success.
Rachel is a talented interior designer who has been running her own consultancy for the last 14 years. When I won a two-hour consultation with her in a raffle at the event, I was very pleased. Having recently moved, I needed a touch of outside advice as to get my new abode looking as good as possible.
During my consultation, Rachel gave me some fantastic ideas and advice as to how I could do this effectively, both in style and cost. It also have me the opportunity to show Rachel my work and see if I could assist her with future projects. Rachel took a shine to one of my images and thought it would be ideal for her home.
Rachel said "I have been looking for a piece of art for my new bedroom for some months but hadn't found quite the right thing till I met Jennie Meadows recently and saw a selection of her abstract photographic prints.
I took a few small samples home to try and chose this beautiful print of a tree section in indigo blues printed on metal. I have had it enlarged to suit my wall area but the quality of the image is still very sharp with the metal background creating an iridescent effect which changes with the light. I like the fact that although it is essentially an abstract work it is 'rooted' in nature".
And here it is on Rachel's wall! Lovely to see my work in this size (60cm x 40cm). Fits in perfectly... another wonderful bit of work by The Print Foundry.

A statement from my latest satisfied customer. Thanks to the lovely Judy Sarsby for her encouragement and support in my path to where I am now!
"I followed Jennie's journey through the trees of Bushy park with great enjoyment and became even more transfixed when the micro study embraced the bark only. Her images are stunning and a conversation point.
I recently bought a set of four prints which, with their modern twist and beautiful colours combined with the natural wonder of wood, I thought I'd put up in our mountain chalet. However, I've decided I don't want to leave them there and will redecorate to accommodate them in the bedroom. Stunning, eye catching, vibrant and original work!"
These are the images Judy chose...
Another beautiful evening, another stroll with the camera to take in that gorgeous late summer sun.
The Woodland Garden didn't disappoint last night with the Longford sparkling. The ducks also obliged by swimming past creating some lovely ripples to help with this image...
Also caught the sun through the tree at just the right angle to create this beauty...
Am certainly looking forward to the next couple of weeks of long shadows and the transition to autumn...
After three solid weeks of re-examining, selecting, editing and formatting images for my website, it was wonderful to return with the camera to Bushy Park last Friday. I took the bike for an early evening ride, making the most of the glorious sunlight.
Couldn't resist capturing the light coming through these leaves with subtle signs of Autumn starting to show.
I also visited my favourite spot in Bushy Park, The Woodland Gardens, where the evening light was delightfully playing both the trees and Longford River.
One of my last shots of the visit caught the rays reflected off the water, enabling the original for my latest gallery edition. I also took the plunge and played a touch more with the colour balance in post production and came up with this. Will certainly be extending the colour range to get the full spectrum...
