Isle of Wight – Lavender

October 20, 2012

If you’ve never been to the Isle of Wight and are ever nearby (i.e. in Southern England), give it a visit. A weekend is more than enough time to see it, and of course, go in Summer! Within a 30 minute period, one can drive across the island… ๐Ÿ™‚ Aside from the beautiful beaches I highly recommend a visit The Garlic Farm, and to the Lavender Farm.

Have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ – I buy ones that look good to me… I wonder if anyone else does…


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™‚


When you wish…

January 22, 2012

Thank you all for sharing the stories of how you got into photography last week, it’s really good to learn a little bit more about all of you, and whilst our reasons for gettingย into photography is so varied one thing that is definitely the same is the passion. ย This year in the sales I went to a local store to see what they were getting rid of that I could use as a subject… ๐Ÿ™‚ This beautiful candle holder is one of the items I found. I don’t tend to use candles much but, I sure liked the holder ๐Ÿ˜‰ Setup for this was to put a lamp behind the holder and shine it through… some blue card underneath was used to capture the shadowy stars.

So, this week I’m pleased to say that once again I took photos… just need to process them now so that I can add to my wordpress photo stash ๐Ÿ˜‰

As always… have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚
