Summer into Autumn

The summer was packed with days out, new experiences and the odd bit of decorating. Richard and I took a trip on the Tornado steam train from Walton on the Naze to Colchester in August.  The Tornado is a new steam train which has been built by hand based on a traditional steam locomotive.  It was…

OnePlus 5 – 2 weeks on

I have had my OnePlus5 for two weeks now and have to say I a very impressed. Having the challenge of taking numerous photos for OnePlus has helped me to think about what I can capture and to put the camera through it’s paces.

Wimpole. Yep. Another picnic. 

Another weekend.  More scorching hot weather (so hot in fact we left Wimpole early as there was no shade which made it unbearable).  We made the most of it thought and visited Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire.  We took a picnic (this time with lovely fresh English strawberries) and enjoyed our lunch in a shady patch…

A photography day in Lincolnshire

Richard and I took a drive to Lincolnshire today to visit Belton House. The day started quite thundery but thankfully by the time we got there the weather was glorious. We decided to pack our cameras and have a day of gentle walks and shooting whatever caught our eye. It gave me an opportunity to…

It had to happen…

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog as I have been rather busier than normal.  Coupled with the glorious weather, I haven’t really wanted to stay indoors on the laptop. I also have a paper to write for my photography course and that is taking some of my free time. I must confess there is…
