One-Four Challenge: October Week Four

Here's my final October edit for Robyn's One-Four Challenge. My main aim for this month was to learn how to layer images to create a composite.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Things Made From Wood

It's time for another post for Cee's Black and White Challenge. This week's theme is, Things Made From Wood.

I wasn't sure for a while whether I was going to be joining in with this week's challenge because, as I've mentioned before, I don't generally take many pictures of people.
