Cycles in Copenhagen

October 14, 2012

I recently visited Copenhagen and three things really stood out for me.

1) People there like to cycle

2) People there love to smoke (strange considering the cycling, I felt)

3) People there love hot dogs

So, I’ve been engaging in improving my health lately… cutting down on the bad stuff, increasing the good stuff and doing my best to exercise more. A friend pointed me towards fitocracy.com – If you exercise but need motiviation, give it a go. You get points for exercising, and motivation from other people. With a variety of groups to join you can get targeted motivation, and, it’s free. If you do join, I’m on there as greysqrl – feel free to add me. Yesterday afternoon I did a 5k run… awesome. Yesterday evening I made a home made hot fudge desert… – balance restored… πŸ˜‰

I’ll be honest here… I DO judge books by their covers, if the cover looks good, I’ll pick it up, have a flick through, read the blurb and that’ll be the decider on whether I’ll read it or not. Same with toothbrushes πŸ™‚ – I buy ones that look good to me… I wonder if anyone else does…


Somewhat flat oranges… but, they tasted good.

One of the greatest things about food/drink photography is eating the model… πŸ˜€

So, I know, this isn’t the greatest photo in the world and didn’t exactly turn out as I wanted to… but, hey, I got 4th place in the refreshing comp with this, 2nd with the lemonade collage and 1st with the previous ice and a slice 7up free post so.. what the heck, thought I’d post it anyway…

For anyone else that is trying to quit high sugar drinks but misses the fizz… here’s a recommendation, sparking water (the cheap stuff from your supermarket is fine) and a little bit of squash… works a treat. πŸ™‚



A wheel… from where I don’t know…

September 23, 2012

Yes! It’s a wheel, but, I have no recollection where I photographed this. Maybe Brighton???

That’s about it.. I have nothing else of interest to write here…

Have a great week. πŸ™‚


Ice and a slice

September 16, 2012

This photo was taken for a ‘Refreshing’ themed competition… a glass of 7 up (free), a lovely slice of lime, lots of ice and sprig of mint. Taken with a macro lens and the contrast boosted to make it pop…

Have a great week πŸ™‚

I love Wildflowers… if I owned a huge field and could be bothered to… I’d fill it with wildflowers.. πŸ™‚


End of Summer

September 2, 2012

I was luckily enough to go to the Olympic Park yesterday to see the paralympic football. Sadly team GB did not do very well but, it was an enjoyable day anyhow.

Hope you guys have all enjoyed the olympics and are enjoying the paralympics.

Have a great week πŸ™‚



Making Lemonade

August 26, 2012

On a hot summer’s day, there’s nothing more satisfying than home made lemonade.

We recently visited the WB Harry Potter Studio tour. If you visit England, or of course live here, and have any interest in the film, I highly recommend the tour, it’s truly amazing. Do NOT read up on it beforehand as you will probably have the experience spoiled for yourself if you do. Anyway, the photo below is from one of the many amazing sets…

Have a great week πŸ™‚


Street Food

August 12, 2012

I love Wahaca, great mexican food (although I’ve never been to Mexico so cannot really judge). Β They have this lovely little street van in Covent Garden which was perfectly set to be photographed. I spent the last week in Denmark which is without doubt the most expensive country I’ve ever visited! Still, it presented me with lots of photos that I now have to process… πŸ˜€

Have a great week πŸ™‚
