#WorldPhotographyDay 2016 - Jenny K Home Shares a Few Inspirational Photos


Today is #WorldPhotographyDay . You'll probably have seen quite a few amazing photos on social media and the news by now, however I wanted to share a few photos of my own.

#WorldPhotographyDay Photo 1) A View from Mount Snowdon, Wales. Photographed from the Llanberis Path.

I took this photo on holiday earlier this year. Luckily we had a lovely clear day to climb Snowdon, which I have heard is not all that common!

You may be wondering what on earth this has to do with the bird cushion designs I have been making . . . This scenery evokes a natural rustic charm which is a style that I've carried over to the designs. It doesn't matter what you draw; what matters is how it makes you feel.

This cushion design was inspired by a photograph capturing a budgie mid-flight. The intricate pattern reminds me of a synchronised flock - imagine if that was an Olympic sport?!

I'm very proud of this design as it's done very well on social media, in particular Instagram, with over 50 likes.

This bird cushion design will soon be part of a family, and I'm hoping to create different colourways for different looks.

#WorldPhotographyDay Photo 3) Jenny K Home Artwork Officially Approved by Canaries! Photographed at the Jenny K Home base in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

As you may have guessed by now, I'm into birds, and I own 7 along with my partner Steve. 2x Canaries (pictured above), 2x budgies and 3x Chinese Painted Quails.

As I work away to create the next piece of Jenny K Home textile art, I usually find myself surrounded by these two canaries. They are fairly tame and as you can see, they often like to inspect the work I do to ensure it meets their high expectations.

#WorldPhotographyDay Photo 4) Heath Spotted Orchid Photographed in the Rhinog Mountains of Wales.

While I was on holiday in Wales earlier this year, I also came across this beautiful example of a Heath Spotted Orchid near the top of one of the Rhinog mountains, at the bottom of the Roman Steps.
