Bubble Blue

May 13, 2012

Well, this has been the first sunny weekend in maybe a couple of months. Saturday – sunny, Sunday – sunny. Beautiful!

and… what a lovely weekend it’s been. We took advantage of the lovely weather to get outdoors heading down to Pooh Country (Ashdown Forest), childhood home of A. A. Milne and the inspiration for his lovely works. Just wandering about in the hills, stumbling upon the enchanted forest, piglet’s pit and of course, playing poohsticks on the bridge. Lovely and most wonderfully, not in any way, shape or form commercialised. Free to do, and a lot of charming, easy happiness. What more can one ask for?

Well, after that, I noticed that we weren’t too far from Brighton so, rather than heading home, we headed further away, to the beach for a couple of hours. Lovely!

Of course, my camera was with ย me, so now I just have to PP the 400+ shots.. ๐Ÿ™‚ – I’m sure I’ll reduce that down when I throw out the rubbish photos.

Today – Theme Park Day – Back to Chessington, first time this year and, despite the gorgeous weather… not at all busy.

Best weekend this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is one of those photos with an obvious name… I really don’t like naming photos and so, I end up with stating the obvious for… it’s blue and has bubbles in it.

Have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. Very cool!

  2. Wow. That is a cool pic!

  3. This is awesome! I like the composition, you made it look as if these are thousands of lit balloons released from the ground into the evening sky.

  4. That’s wild, Nigel…
    all those tiny bits of energy almost feel ‘organic’ to me in a way…
    if that makes any sense…

  5. Interesting bubbles! Wish you had a great weekend, Nigel!: D

  6. Interesting shot! Sounds like a great weekend…my first sunny weekend was spent working for the whole of it! Not so inspiring for photos!

  7. Very interesting shot, Nigel. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Nice to know Milne’s childhood home can be enjoyed in a non-commercialized, unspoiled state. How refreshing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Beautiful colour and an interesting composition, Nigel.

  9. Are these real bubbles? it’s such a fascinating photo, I just don’t understand it ๐Ÿ™‚
