Magazine Covers

I've decided that it's quite hard to decide what to put on the front cover each month. Some sort of landscape? A smiley face? Are these writing related? No, I don't think they are. But I can't think of what is. At the moment.


  1. Have a look here:

    lots of stock photos........

  2. Not something I would normally have thought of but now you mention it, I can understand your dilemma and I suppose you have to be so careful what with copyrights etc.

  3. Thanks Rob, I'll have a look!

    It is hard to decide on covers! I don't know what makes me pick a magazine up... bright colours...? Famous name...? Wonderful picture...?

    Hopefully it'll get easier as the months go by...


An inspired poem

Dear Vivienne
inspiration from your blog picture
A Camera’s Eye View

Looking into a picture, starting from top left
The crows nests in the tree tops, gray sky’s causing silhouettes.

Following down the left hand edge, bare branches topped with snow
Tree trunks for all of us to see, as black as any crow.

Houses nestled in the woodland, roofs and chimneys tall
The evergreen of the fir trees, masking most, but not them all.

Let the eye drop down the river bank, small bushes all aglow
Standing proudly in the ground, topped off with winter snow.

The shallow water still and silent, bed rocks sticking through
Dark reflections of the trees, and individual branches too.

Suddenly a burst of light, of sunshine and of blue
Reflected in the river Tyne, intended just for you.

Feel that inspiration, as you stare in fascination
I’m glad you took your camera, and captured this creation

Ray Johnson.
looking forward to the mag best wishes
