The English seaside has a charm of its own which never fails to have a restorative affect on my soul. A few snaps from our holiday last week: This week I’m linking up to Project 52, the theme of which is ‘Summer Treats’. Visit Kent Weakley’s blog to join in.
The dog days have begun a little early this year.. It’s Sweet Shot Tuesday. To see the beautiful collection of photos linked up this week or to link up yourself, have a look at Kent Weakley’s blog.
Sorry for the radio silence here on my blog, I’ve been back from holiday for a few weeks but I’m only just returning to real life. Hubby and I had an incredible time in the Greek Islands and keep looking back over our photos to relive the trip. I adore Greece and go there as […]
Here we are again, Sunday. It’s been a weird roller-coaster of a week. A roller-coaster of a month really. In fact, skip the roller-coaster and go straight to the weird circus tents in the back. That’s where I’ve been hanging out. To avoid things getting a little too strange, I’ll keep this check-in brief: 1) […]
It’s finally May and we Brits are getting feverishly excited. Why? It’s only a month to go until the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee! (Anti-Royalists may wish to look away now.) Her Majesty has been touring the UK with the Duke of Edinburgh since the beginning of the year and people have flocked to see her. Despite […]
This week’s Project 52 theme is Green. I wanted to get more adventurous with this week’s photos but lets face it, it would be useless trying to ignore the fact that the colour green is everywhere in the UK, especially at the moment. The weather has been dire for the last few weeks, with constant rains, […]
This week I am joining in with Project 52 for the first time – yey! The theme is ‘sacrifice’. I had no idea what I was going to photograph until I read this BBC News article about bluebells. Apparently the native (UK) bluebell is battling for survival against an aggressive hybrid species. For those who aren’t […]
“There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort” – Emma (Jane Austen) Last week my mother and I took a trip to the lovely Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton, Hampshire. Jane spent the last eight years of her life at Chawton and it was the house in which she wrote and revised […]
It’s finally March and we’ve had some beautiful sunny days in the last week or so. Which means lots of lovely walks for doggie (and for us). I am still a bit unsure about using manual settings alone so I’ve been playing around with the shutter and aperture priority modes instead. One day I’ll be […]
It’s my very first Sweet Shot Tuesday! He may not look sweet when he’s wet and muddy but he’s still as sweet natured. Having devoured his tennis ball he then sat waiting patiently for us to finish our drinks at the pub on Sunday. Why we can’t slurp up our drinks as quickly as he […]
