Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you’ve had a wonderful year and enjoy the festive period. Richard and I have had a lovely year and have enjoyed a mix of travelling, spending time with family and friends and getting married (we were already legally married but on our 11th anniversary we converted…

A bleak weekend

Not the brightest of weekends but the opportunity to try and capture the mood, the light and the snow with a time-lapse video. This is my largest volume of shots yet to create this time-lapse – nearly 2,000 photos!

Morning has broken

I have been experimenting with timelapse photography and have managed to capture a sunrise from our bedroom window that I am very pleased with. My camera does not have a timelapse function, this is a combination of using the anti-shake option and an external shutter release.  It sounds complicated but once you get used to…

A brief love affair

You will recall I mentioned not so long ago about being excited to be the owner of a Leica camera.  Well I am about to sell it! Don’t get me wrong, I love it but the photography course I have started ensures that you take all of your photos in manual mode. The Leica can…

Welcome to Colchester

Time for another gym assessment…

It’s been about 10 weeks since we joined the Essex Golf and Country Club and my gym attendance is going strong.  It has enabled me to be focussed and allows us to both get out and have a decent round of exercise (which was the intention). Richard has found his groove in the pool whilst…

Gym’ll fix it

Another day and another trip to the gym (well last night). I’ve done really well this week with three sessions at the gym since Saturday. Last night was the first post work session and although it was tough when I started I just got on with it.  To quote my colleagues I smashed it! I…

3 weeks in…

It is three weeks since I joined the gym and I have had my first assessment today. Not big news for some but bigs news for me! I have not managed to do the split of running and the gym, however, I have been to the gym regularly – although not as regularly as I…

Things will workout

As you will have read it’s been some time that I have had the problems with my calves, hamstrings etc and the physio has had varying amount of success. I think the routine running route has not helped either as I have mental triggers which I reach certains landmarks (even when moving my running from…
